I am a student at the University for the Creative Arts, currently working on a Directions unit that will put my directing skills to the test. For this unit I had to choose a couple of scenes from a TV series and recreate them with my own directorial style. I have chosen the TV series “The Wire” and require three actors, all male, to help make this project. My shoot dates are the 21st and the 22nd of February and will take place on the Isle of Sheppey. All expenses will be paid for.

The characters:
Jimmy McNulty – McNulty is a Homicide detective in his mid to late thirties working on a murder case and is the lead role in my project. To whoever will be playing the role, I will require them on both shoot dates.

The Witness – A young drug dealer in their early twenties who witnessed the murder of one of his partners who agrees to speak to McNulty about what happened. Only required on the 7th February.

Agent Fitzhugh – Again in his mid to late thirties, Fitzhugh is a good friend of McNulty’s from higher up. Only required on the 8th February.

Homicide Det. Jimmy McNulty
