ITALY: female actors, 35-50, English spkr, for experimental film in Central Italy [NP]

This is a Casting Call for:

  • female actor
  • playing age: 35-50
  • based in/around Central Italy, Italy
  • speaking fluent ENGLISH

Production Details:

  • type: film
  • payment: non-paid

This is an experimental film based on a loose script and rehearsed improvisation. A man and a woman arrive at a lonely house and find a body. What follows explores their reaction as the situation develops over the next 24 hours.

We are looking for an actress experienced with improvisation as we will be rehearsing and developing the dialogue and scenes from a loose outline. Once developed, they will be filmed over a couple of a weeks in the location.

Ideally you will be resident in Central Italy in order to attend the improv sessions leading up to filming.

This is NOT a paid project; we are doing it (the small crew and the other actors) in order to develop and refine our own skills and experiment with new filming ideas. All cast & crew are highly experienced and have a proven track record in cinema; this is a special project for us to explore areas we haven’t yet tried so a good collaborator and someone with positive ideas is especially welcome – you will be part of a team!

In your application, please tell us a little about yourself in terms of your development as an actor and what you think you might be able to bring to the project.

We only ask that your English is good enough for improvisation, but as for your accent that’s not a problem.

Please send your application in ENGLISH only and include a link to your showreel.
