‘The Test’ Comedy Feature Film Looking to Fill Principal Young Roles for a January start date with Experienced Actors in feature film lead roles.

A Feature Length comedy thriller about a maverick relationship between a student and his teacher during exam time. After being caught cheating in a final A-level exam the student is forced to carry out a nefarious plan if he is to get away it.

As we aim to get a cinema release for this film it is a requirement that candidates are of high calibre and have plenty of experience working on high profile Films or TV Programmes, Candidates MUST be Yorkshire based and be able to prove they have the necessary standards we require as this will be a great opportunity for actors who are struggling to transition from supporting roles in Feature Films to full fledged lead roles or make the jump from TV to Features.

This project is for local people who are serious about a career in acting, we require high standards and commitment to provide actors with the best experience possible. There will be an audition on he 24th of February, please apply quickly and understand that we will not pay travel expenses for that. We will be filming for 3 weeks in Leeds throughout April 2016, with the exact dates to be confirmed. It is a requirement that our actors are Yorkshire based for availability purposes and have the required experience of 3 lead role feature film credits (provide IMDB links and trailers). Anybody who has previously applied and auditioned need not apply again as we have not forgotten about you. For Yorkshire based actors we will be holding rolling auditions until mid February, for Northern actors from outside of the Yorkshire region you will be contacted and instructed to send a self tape if we think you fit the description, if you are successful you will be invited to callbacks at our office. If any Midlands/Southern based actors would like to apply we will be hosting an open casting call at the Surviving actors convention in London on the 6th of February.

We can offer payment for substantial roles subject to finance and experience as this is a low budget, self funded project. However we can only offer deferrals for the supporting cast with a smaller screen time and trainee crew dependent upon securing funding and sales of the film. In addition we have launched a crowd-funding campaign for this film on Indiegogo, We will most certainly provide a copy of the film for your show reel, an IMDB credit and invite to Leeds and other Film Festivals.

As the project is wholly filmed in Yorkshire, our aim for this project is to discover and promote Yorkshire based talent. Giving locals the chance to perform both in front and behind the camera whilst learning from top industry professionals so location is very important for this film allowing our limited budget to be stretched as far as possible hence making as high as possible quality film. This also provides an opportunity to be considered for our upcoming spy thriller ‘Kickback’, starring John Cusack, and to work with the same director, the award winning Raza Mallal.


Any non Yorkshire based actors are welcome to send in a self tape.
