Sally Potter -who directed Torquay’s Lily Cole in her last film -is looking for two teenage girls, aged 14 to 18, for the leading roles in her latest feature film.
Sally’s production company Adventure Pictures has created an open casting forum on YouTube and are inviting interested and aspiring actors to upload a video audition before inviting the best ones to come to London to audition.
Rather than relying on the usual casting agents or drama schools, the production company wants to use social media to find new and interesting actors who we could not otherwise access.
The two aspiring actresses will be playing the age of 15-16, for her Sally’s 60s period film.
Sally has worked with stars including Johnny Depp, Tilda Swinton, Judi Dench and Jude Law on her previous films, including the Oscar-nominated Orlando.
Adventure Pictures is inviting those interested to post a short video of themselves performing part of a scene from the film, and the best ones will be invited to an audition in London.
