Based on the Duchenne de Boulogne experiments into the mechanics of facial expression, Duchenne experiments on facial muscles using electrified rods on a participant’s face, an elderly man, to discover the link between facial muscles and the human soul. Filmed straight on, clinically, as though we are viewing the experiment as an observer. The video explores the soul of the subject, exploring existentialism and out-of-body experience to represent the soul and the emotions induced by the experiment.

We are looking for one male actor (40-60) to play the test participant, and two supporting actors (18-40) to play Duchenne de Boulogne and their assistant.

We have a preliminary shoot day booked for 24th May 2016. Filming will take one day, in Sheffield. Travel expenses will be covered.

We will pay the male actor playing the test participant a sum of £100.00, and the two supporting actors a sum of £50.00 each for their contribution.

Test Participant

As the test participant (lead role) in the video, you will react to the experiments the doctor conducts on your face. Using thin rods, the doctor and their assistant will probe areas of your facial muscles to investigate the link between the facial muscles and the human soul.
Thus, we are looking for an actor with exceptional facial expression, that can portray many emotions by using just their face.

Doctor & Assistant

As Duchenne de Boulogne (the doctor), you will conduct experiments using thin rods to probe the test participant’s face, to investigate the link between facial muscles and the human soul. As the assistant, you will aid the doctor in providing additional help upon the test participant’s face as well as providing the doctor with the correct instruments to use.
As characters in the field of science, you will both be highly inquisitive, objective-minded and at times even cruel in your process.
