Short film casting call

C&B Productions are looking for deaf and hearing actors to take part in a new drama called "My Song" (working title).

This is a powerful and moving story about a deaf girl caught between two worlds. This will be a 27 minute drama directed by William Mager and written by Charlie Swinbourne, who have an award winning track record. The drama is funded by the BSLBT, and will be shown on the Community Channel in 2011 followed by various film festival screenings. We are currently casting the following main characters:

17yrs old
Rosie is severely deaf, brought up in a mainstream school and with a hearing family. Rosie communicates through speech, but has recently started learning how to sign.
This role will suit a deaf actress with a playing age of 17-25.

Aged 17
A fashionable teenage girl with attitude - one of Rosie's closest friends. She dresses in fashionable clothes but with a slight sense of ‘street’ scruffiness to them. She’s the kind of person who walks into a room and attracts a lot of attention.

Aged 17
Another friend of Rosie's - less confident than Holly, and competes with Rosie for Holly's attention. Is nicer to Rosie when Holly is not around.

Aged 18-20
Rosie's boyfriend. A good looking young man who's a bit of a cheeky 'wide boy' and loves a joke.

Aged 19 to 25
Ben is a Deaf BSL user who works in the theatre, organising performances and deaf events. Young, charming, a confident signer.

Aged 13-16
A cheeky teenage boy who dotes on his mum, and teases his older sister but deep down is very protective of her.

Casting sessions are being held at the end of October.
Filming will commence in London towards the end of November.
Please email C&B Productions on with a recent photograph, CV and contact details (mobile phone and email).
The deadline for sending us this information is FRIDAY THE 22nd OCTOBER.
We will then be in touch if we would like to audition you. Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you!
