Hello and welcome to one of our shoutouts for projects casting around the UK. As always, there’s a mix of opportunities for all ages, abilities, and locations, but do remember to check if you fit the bill before applying. Although we make every attempt to verify castings before we hit publish, please ensure that you do your own research before firing off those headshots and Backstage links.

Director Nicholas Winter is seeking two actors for Giants, a minute-long horror film to be entered into a competition. The film begins – as all the best horrors do – with a teenage couple driving into a secluded wood in the middle of the night. Check out the script in the casting notice for the rest of the story.

Here are the character breakdowns:

Natalie is for a female actor aged 18­–22 of any ethnicity – a classic horror movie heroine. You’ll need an active imagination, especially for the final shot as the film focuses on an unseen beast.

The second role is for a male actor aged 30–40, of any ethnicity. A “dishevelled, crazy type,” he’s a man running in the woods in fear of his life.

Giants shoots in Bedford on October 31 for around three hours. Roles are paid £10 per hour, plus expenses.
