Do you own a larger than life parrot that is destined for the big screen? Dartmoor-based production company Oddbodies is currently casting for a parrot to play a starring role in a short film being shot in the first week of July.
The film, called The Nature of Angrove, is about the search for love and being true to oneself with a bit of maternal meddling thrown in for good measure.
One of the main characters is transformed into a parrot, becoming a symbol of release and freedom.
The film will be premiered locally at the Two Short Nights Festival in October, and will go on to be screened at international film festivals.
Does your parrot have what it takes? If so, come along to a casting at the Barbican Theatre in Plymouth on Monday, June 13 2011 at 11am. Call 01822 820553 for more details.
In return for letting Oddbodies film your parrot, you will be invited to the set (based in Lydford) to watch the film being made. All travel expenses will be covered and meals will be supplied. You will also be credited on film and will receive a finished copy of the film on DVD.
Tanya Morel, co-founder of Oddbodies told D&CFilm: ‘This is a very unusual request, but also a great opportunity. We are really looking forward to finding a parrot with star quality.’
Oddbodies is an award winning production company renowned for its innovative and highly visual work for theatre, film and visual arts. They won Best Film Award at last year’s Two Short Nights Festival for the darkly comic ad fabulously grotesque Mrs Lustleigh’s Fancies, a short film which is now being submitted to festivals around the world.
