Get involved in our next short film

We have both crew and cast positions available, open to those with tonnes of experience and also none! The project is to encourage skill sharing in Northampton and the county, and also to expand the reach of Northampton’s Holocaust Memorial Day and its theme of ‘Don’t Stand By’. We are making a short drama about a refugee who, through acts of kindness from Northampton strangers and unusually positive media coverage, creates a new life for himself. This will be coupled with a docu-drama about real acts of kindness in Northampton. What if we all went out of our way each week to perform one act of kindness and made sure the media covered those instead of scaremongering about immigration, refugees and terrorism??

We are looking for crew to work under professional Producers Becky Adams and Paul Mills of Reelscape Community, and Director Brenda Lee (feature film Fortune Cookies). Please get in touch with your CV.

We’re also looking for cast. We’re interested in hearing from any cast member or person interested in being in the film regardless of experience. We have roles for varied ages, ethnicities, etc and even if it doesn’t work out for this one we have plenty of other films coming up this year.

We have specific roles too:

35-45 year old male refugee (could be Syrian, Iranian or of any ethnicity suitable for playing a refugee fleeing war, discrimination, persecution)
8-10 year old daughter (or son)
Elderly couple
4-5 youths
30 year old woman (nice face)
40 year old white male cafe owner (bit grumpy)
And there’s more to come as we complete the script. Please get in touch or 07930 646721 or via Facebook
