UCS Ipswich film students are appealing for willing actors to appear in a variety of projects.
Tutors and staff are holding an open casting event this Wednesday at the Waterfront building from 4pm–8.30pm, the idea being to create a database of Ipswich filmmaking talent. It’s open to everybody, from actors and musicians to artists and general films enthusiasts.
Alexandra Leaney, course leader for BA (Hons) film at UCS Ipswich said: “The students make three to four films a year, so creating a network of contacts like this is essential for their filmmaking practice. I encourage anyone interested in acting and performing to get in contact with the students via email or attend the casting event.”
Current movies in pre-production include the 10-minute fiction short Rocket Boy and several experimental short films.
There will be an opportunity to audition for Rocket Boy at the event. The story of a man trying to come to grips with his life after a tragedy befalls him at a shopping centre, the film’s makers need a male and female lead, a young boy and men and women for non-speaking supporting roles.
Film roles at UCS Ipswich are currently unpaid but is the chance for aspiring actors to get more experience in front of the camera and add work to the CV.
Anyone interested in making costumes, hair and make-up, graphics or set design are also welcome to come along. Register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting http://ucsfilmcasting.wordpress.com where full details of future productions will be posted.
