This student production is an exciting short film with a quirky twist at the end.
Logline: When the double bassist of a small orchestra tries to introduce a new sound, his attempts are met with passionate protests from the conservative guitarist who refuses to let go of his past.
We will be shooting on 9, 10 and 11 October 2015.
We are looking for actors who are strong in comedic timing!
Although the roles are based around musicians, you do not need to be a musician for this role as we will be using an external soundtrack.
Auditions will be held on 26 September 2015 in Paddington.
This film will be a great addition to your showreel ! We hope to enter the film in international competitions for 2016. Also catering will be provided- so come down, have some fun and enjoy some free food!
