Write Camera Action, the Glasgow based film cooperative are very excited to put out a cast call for a short film adapted from the runner up of their short script competition, ‘Where’s Wilbur’. This is a first short fiction production from a highly experienced documentary filmmaker who wishes to cast from the fantastic pool of talent she’s observed over the years at WCA! The resulting 3 min short will be a high quality film for festival entry and excellent showreel footage for all involved.
This is a no fee production but a fantastic opportunity for a quality showreel piece and excellent contacts. Email with any headshots, c.v. or relevent info and what time on the date below an audition would suit. Audition piece will be sent with audition time. N.B. Parents/Guardians/Teachers with genuine enquiry call 07716658896. It is likely the main role of Abigail will be instrumental in sourcing her ‘schoolfriends’ and be a fun introduction to filmmaking for the lucky cast.
