Versatile actors required for a short film project - Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes, UK
Listed by View details

I am currently working on a (very) short film of roughly 3-5 minutes which will be used as part of my university portfolio. This will be a subsidiary project to my other film, which i'm also working on at the minute, which is centred around a bank member who leaves footsteps (Trails) in the lives of strangers.

The synopsis for the magician project is based on the idea of a lonely man who thinks he has sold his reputation to another company for good measure. A brief moment of his life will be illustrated at different points throughout the day which will act as a summary of his character. Each moment of his life is based on the game; 'Clock Patience', where each card (i.e The Joker) will remind him of certain states of mind. When the full deck of cards is revealed, a ''you didn't see that coming'' type of twist rather than a ''predictable'' type of twist will conclude the story.

Inspiration for this film came from the idea of filming scenes out of sequence rather than in chronological order (Which is how my longer film is structured) and from the notion of time progressing irregularly when the mind is in a depressive state.
I'm also fond of using subliminal imagery in my films to represent the world from the characters point of view. The idea of 'Clock Patience' reflects that the magician literally has control over time and can choose which points in his life he has the most influence over.

This project is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to be involved in a short film, anyone wanting to improve their acting skills or anyone wanting to have their name in the credits.

Actors can apply from anywhere in the UK, however, most of the filming will take place in Aylesbury where i live, Milton Keynes and London.

Magician

This character is incredibly ambiguous but at the same time has many relatable traits. The role will require a very versatile actor who is capable of expressing themselves effectively. For instance, they will need to be able to embody a pleasant and joyful character as well as a depressed and incredibly lonely one.
