HOW DO I AUDITION?
Via Twitter. Submit videos to us on our Twitter page: @twistthemovie using the hashtag #faginsgang. The videos must show you performing Parkour or any transferable skill or discipline (eg skateboarding, bike Parkour, breakdancing, gymnastics etc) and please introduce yourself (we need to see your charisma and your face).
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
In this Casting Call we, the Producers of the film, are looking for actors who are also practitioners of Parkour and freerunning (or skateboarding, breakdancing etc), 16-24, male and female, to star as Fagin’s gang:
Oliver is 17, an orphan who has learned to live off his wits, as well as his speed, there’s not many who can catch him. When he meets the gang and starts to learn Parkour just as fast, he’s going to become an invaluable asset to Fagin.
Nancy, a former gymnast, is a character chameleon (she can play anything from hippy art student to Russian art dealer).
Dodge is streetwise, ambitious and handsome in a dangerous kind of way. He likes being in charge and is an artful freerunner.
Batesy may act tough but he’s the baby of the group and also the gang’s computer geek. His Parkour skills are efficient, if a little less flashy than Dodge, but he knows how to get from A to B.
Tom “TC” Chitling
Bigger than Batsey, and twice as cocky, full of charm and humour, TC get teased because he doesn’t yet have a “thing”, a specialised skill, what that “thing” is may be up to you.
WHO WILL GET SELECTED?
Matthew Parkhill, Sébastien Foucan, casting agents Kelly Valentine Hendry and Victor Jenkins from VHJ Casting, producer Ben Grass of Pure Grass Films and executive producer Samantha Horley of The Salt Company (or any other persons chosen by us) will select their favourite 25 at their discretion.
The applicants featured in the top 25 selected videos will be invited to London to audition their acting and their athletic skills at an event to be held in conjunction with Parkour Generations, currently scheduled for Saturday 3rd December at L.E.A.P (London Experience of Art du Deplacement and Parkour: London's first, and the world's largest, purpose built Parkour park, which opened September this year) but subject to change at our discretion.
Applicants aged 18 or under who are selected for audition must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
