SHORT FILM BEING FILMED FOR SUBMISSION TO CHANNEL 4'S COMEDY LAB.
We are looking for someone between the ages of 16 and 25 to play a wannabe chav (he is actually quite middle class) in a short film (7 minutes in duration) which will be used as a trailer or \'taster\' for a TV show pilot submission for Channel 4\'s comedy lab. The sitcom follows the lives of three young and hopeless criminals on the fringe of Edinburgh’s (OR Glasgow’s) underworld. The part available is of one of these criminals. The only stipulation is that he has to be under 5’10’’ in height.
The script for the pilot and the short film has been written by Louis Paxton, who's latest short Choreomania has been selected for Glasgow Film Festival and has won a Royal Television Society Short Film Award, and Paddy Kondracki, a comedian and Scriptwriting graduate (Bournemouth University).
We intend to shoot on Sat 13th and Sun 14th February in Glasgow. As this is a low budget project we cannot offer a fee however full catering will be provided and travel expenses paid.
Auditions are to be held ASAP in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. (phone 07733383381 or 07748288779 to arrange a time which suits you or to read a copy of the script.)
Obviously this is a great opportunity if a pilot is commissioned but all actors will also receive a DVD copy of the finished short for use in showreels etc.
