“Chess is not always about winning, sometimes its simply about learning, and so is life”

We are filming a fantastic script about a young man hoping to do his ill grandfather proud in a chess tournament and need the help of a gaffer to bring the best out of this story!

Filming will take place over 2 days on May 21st/ 22nd across 6 locations (4 indoors, 2 outdoor). Previous experience is key, but we are looking for enthusiasm more than anything else!

As this budget is being done on a budget only expenses will be covered (along with a crew and cast dinner afterwards). This is the first of several scripts that the director has written and is developing, so if all goes well then there will most definitely be future paid opportunities!
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Auditions will preferably take place on 23rd/ 24th April, but we can arrange for this to be done at a different time if need be.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

We are looking for an actor to play the same character but across different ages, so be prepared to wear wigs and wear a bit of make-up to make you look a little bit older. You are one of the main characters of this short, so you will have about 5 – 6 pages worth of lines to remember.

Males, aged 45 to 55 from London, United Kingdom
