Postgraduate Filmmaking students at the University of Sussex are producing a series of scenes shot in studio and on location from films such as ‘Good Will Hunting’, ‘Career Girls’, ‘True Grit’ and ‘Closer’. We are looking for actors that are interested in developing characters through a short rehearsal period. Ideally you will be experienced in improvisation, working with text, character development, be flexible and highly committed. We welcome actors with various training, backgrounds, and experiences are open to all ages, genders, and ethnic backgrounds. There will be 12 short films produced.

You must be available for 2-3 days of rehearsal and shooting from early to mid -December. (Exact dates to be negotiated)
The scenes will be either shot in studio at Sussex or on location in Brighton. For rehearsal and shooting days travel expenses will be covered for Brighton. You will be provided a copy of the scene for your show reels. The students will be working on longer short films next year that may be of interest to you.

Casting will take place in central Brighton on Thursday 15 November from 10.30am – 1pm. Please indicate your preferred slot: 10.30, 11.00, 12.00, 12.30.
You will be asked to prepare a short text that will be sent to you along with an improvisation exercise given to you on the day.
