Symptoms tells the story of a trainee doctor, Sam, and his final practical examination. Set in the world – known well to most actors – of fake illness and playing a part, not all of the “patients” that Sam sees are who they seem. Sam comes into contact with a variety of actors, with a wide range of abilities, from mockney Ben who wants to talk about “the thing in his pants” to inept Jenna who can’t keep her fake wound stuck on. But then everything changes when he has to diagnose Amy.
We need the MUA primarily for the two main characters. Ability to create a prosthetic wound is desirable but not essential. The film is set in a training hospital so the wound should probably look slightly “fake”. It will also fall off in the course of the film.
This is a low budget production so we are only able to provide expenses (travel/food) and credits. We plan to submit it to film festivals.
Shoot dates are 5/6 and 12/13 March at UCLH.
