Award-winning Devon filmmaker Tom Austin is making a new short and is looking for a number of actors and actresses to play both small speaking and walk-on parts.
Filming will take place in and around Torbay and Newton Abbot during the week beginning Monday, June 6 for a week. You would only be required for one day. Refreshments and a DVD copy of the film will be provided to participants.
Dog Collar Criminal is one of the successful commissions from Exeter Phoenix Digital’s Green Light scheme awarded to writer/director Tom Austin (winner of both jury and audience awards at Two Short Nights Film Festival 2009 for his Exeter Phoenix Digital Short Film Commission La Legende_Dali).
It’s the story of one Devon man’s journey from loved and respected pillar of society, to petty criminal, to long-term prison inmate. He also just happens to be the parish vicar.
Speaking parts are: Saville, an antiques dealer in his 50s; a rotund Police Constable in his 20s; Susie Trapp, an attractive woman in her 20s; Mr O’Connor (walk-on) and Mrs O’Connor, a couple in their 30s; a female bank assistant 25-35.
Non-Speaking roles are for two female, one male bank staff 20s-40s; four bank customers, 2 x police officers 25-40; and 10 x M/F 11-75 passers-by, pedestrians, shop browsers etc.
The film is set in the mid 1970s, so we are looking for neutral clothes as opposed to modern or specifically 70s fashion.
