Casting psychedelic video for up and coming band
Hotly tipped band Sad Night Dynamite are shooting a music video following a protagonist who finds himself stuck in a psychedelic hotel. The team are seeking London-based performers to play a host of roles, including a real couple (any genders, any ethnicities, aged 18+) to simulate sex with full nudity. Please note there will be an intimacy coordinator on a closed set and the final cut will be shocking but not exploitative. Cowboy is male, playing-age 50–65, and any ethnicity. A Johnny Cash-style man, the performer must be a confident guitarist, as must Cowgirl, female, playing-age 18–30, and any ethnicity. Women in Bathrobe is female (including trans woman and non-binary), playing-age 30–45, and any ethnicity. The team are looking for someone with extraordinary features like the model Tin Gao. Ancient Matador Guy is male, playing-age 65–95, and any ethnicity. The video shoots 7 August in London and roles are paid £200. Head to the casting notice for more info and to apply now. 

Commercial casting host of London-based actors
A production company is casting a series of short films around the launch of 5G and seeking a host of actors for non-speaking roles. Roles include a well-dressed woman in her 30s, a 20-year-old female student, a male NHS worker, a female wheelchair user in her 30s, and a male community group leader in his 40s. Each film shoots for a few hours between 4–6 August in London and roles are paid £300, plus £50 if you can bring suitable clothes. Head to the casting notice for more details and to apply now. 

Short horror film shooting casting in Norfolk
Short folk horror film The Lantern Man is shooting in Norfolk this autumn and casting for actors in the area. Following a grieving man returning to the marshland to save his wife’s last memory, the team is seeking a male, playing-age 23–27, and white, to play lead role Joseph. He’s skinny, introverted, and handsome, but not too polished; and the team are seeking a performer with a convincing Norfolk accent. Patrick is male, playing-age 27–34, and white. Stocky, bearded, and with a convincing Norfolk accent, he’s a people-pleaser. Bart is male, playing-age 30–35, and white. Barbara is female, playing-age 20–25, and white with black or brown hair. Check out the casting notice for two further male roles and to apply now. 

Music video casting lead male
A narrative-led music video is casting a London-based older male performer to star as a retired postman reminiscing about his job before delivering one last letter. This non-speaking role is for a male, playing-age 45–80, and white. The character leads the story, so the performer needs to be a strong actor who can inhabit the role. The project shoots in London and is paid £400 for one rehearsal and one day’s filming. Check out the casting notice for more details and to apply now.
