Fantasy feature film casting now
Casting director Selin Erkut is seeking two performers with previous screen experience for a feature film, plot details under wraps. The Princess is female, playing age 18–23 and any ethnicity. She’s attractive, ideally with blonde hair, and with good comic timing. She should look “like a classic Disney princess,” and performers should have RP or neutral accents only. Male lead Finn has a playing age of 16–23 and any ethnicity. He has an “underwhelming physique” from living on the streets but is charismatic, charming and funny – think Tom Sawyer with an RP or neutral accent. The film shoots this September in Slovakia and all performers and crew will have to adhere to Covid-19 testing and guidelines before travel. Roles are paid professionally, above Equity Minimum, plus travel and accommodation covered. The team are seeking performers based anywhere in the UK.

Short film from acclaimed writer-director, casting now
Writer and director Ben Plumb, creator of mockumentary Spotters-Spotters, is casting for new short film Animal Pie. Following a group of friends at a party that ends badly, the film turns the American Pie-style college movie stereotype on its head, exploring how the MeToo movement has changed the way we process stories of predatory behaviour. Lead role Chris is male, playing age 18–25 and white. A charming and naive twenty-something student in London, he’s having the best time of his life. Co-lead Sally is female, playing ages 18–25 and Black, South Asian, or mixed race. A self-assured final-year student, she has an air of mystique and sharp-edged wit that hides vulnerability. The project rehearses 26 August and shoots 2–5 September in London, with roles paid £75 per day. Head to the casting notice for more information and to apply now.
