Casting Calls: Male Aged 30-45 for Short Film

Warhol is an award winning dark comedic script with a run time of 15 minutes, during which it holds a mirror up to the celebrity obsessed world within which we live. How far will a person go, or allow themselves to be pushed in order to achieve their fifteen minutes of fame? ‘Warhol’ demonstrates how the media can influence, and in this case manipulate their audience, at times with disturbing consequences.

You will be working with an award winning script and a team that have worked on the following programmes. A Director, who has worked on everything from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves to Mr Selfridge. Craig Shaynak – You may know him from the hit show ‘Ray Donovan.’ Anil Desai – The Kumars (BBC) Stuart White Nichols – BBC Timothy David – HBO’s Game Of Thrones, Benjamin Crellin – Xena Warrior Princess and Young Hercules. Thomas Johnson – Art Director on the last four JLS Videos. And me… Adam, who’s written for The BBC, Buena Vista, ITV and others. We also have a genuine hollywood actor reading for the lead.

Character: Dave Dawson

Must be American or Canadian! Must! Age 30 – 45. Dave is a Howard Stern wannabe. Banned from broadcasting in America after a stunt backfired, Dave jumped the pond in search of a fresh start, forcing him to take a job at a small regional station in East Anglia where his right-wing, straight talking persona is more than the suburban town can handle. The lack of night owls, insomniacs and lovelorn housewives, means he is having trouble flexing his tabloid muscles.

I am looking for an after effects editor to come on board a high profile museum project. I’d love you to bring your creative flare and offer ideas rather than need to be told exactly what to do. The final film will be 10-15 mins in length and projected large over a series of nights for an emersive installation but will stand alone as a short film as well.
