Open online casting call for 13 - 16 year old

Fireworks is a charming indie comedy about a teenage girl, Kat, who runs away from home to find her uncle Gillies, who she has secretly discovered is her real dad. But Gillies, played by the fantastic Ewen Bremner, turns out to have bipolar disorder. Without fully understanding this, Kat hatches a plan for them to make a homemade firework, with Gillies' medication as the essential ingredient.

The Fireworks production team are now looking for a talented, bold, headstrong young woman to play the lead role of Kat.

Our bright new star doesn’t need any acting experience, but she does need to be bold, funny and brave. If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

The ideal candidate will be a young-looking sixteen year old with a London accent, but we are prepared to be blown away by any fresh new star who can play a 13-14 year old London girl.

If you fit the bill visit Fireworks Film Casting to apply.

The film is scheduled to shoot for four weeks in Edinburgh in March 2014.

The script was co-written by Hannah Robinson and Jonathan Hall, who first worked together on In The Mood, starring Kelly Brook as a tap dancing German spy. Their first draft of Fireworks won the Grand Prize in the American Screenwriters Association International Script Competition, Silver in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards for Drama, and the financial support of the Wellcome Trust. It has drawn comparisons to Little Miss Sunshine and Silver Linings Playbook.

The film is produced by Wendy Griffin, line producer of Red Road, Donkeys, and You Instead, who recently co-produced the indie rom-com Not Another Happy Ending. For further information visit Indiegogo/Fireworks
