Two actors are required for leading roles in an upcoming short film to be shot in the Derbyshire area.

“Drive” begins when two friends, ‘Alexia’ and ‘Ryan’ arrive home late after a night out drinking. They get in and meet up with their still-awake housemate ‘Ellis’ who suffers from insomnia. After catching up with him, ‘Ellis’ suggests a late night trip to McDonalds, something all three of them are up for. As they approach ‘Ellis’’ car, ‘Ryan’ runs back to go to the toilet as ‘Alexia’ and ‘Ellis’ discuss home and their childhood. Upon ‘Ryan’s’ return, the three embark on their quest for food.
As the three friends set off on their journey, they find themselves discussing home more and more. Whilst their night started out as any other might, this one leads them on a nostalgic trip to reclaim their youth one last time before ‘Ellis’, ‘Alexia’ and ‘Ryan’ graduate and enter the bigger world. But they are yet to realise they must leave their pasts behind and have to face their futures sooner or later.

We’re looking for two actors who can play roles in the 19-24 age bracket and more specifically university students.

If you’re interested in applying for the role or have any queries, please get in contact with us and we’ll be more than happy to respond. If your application fits in with our casting call we would like to invite you for an interview and short audition.

Shooting for this project is intended to start in the last week of March and last for around one week. There may also be additional scenes shot later in April.

Once the film has been shot and edited, we intend to begin releasing “Drive” to short film festivals across the country.

‘Ellis’

‘Ellis Baker’ is a 22 year-old student studying at the University of Derby. He’s a tall, but skinny lad with rough stubble and heavy bags under his eyes from the many hours he’s spent awake because of his insomnia. Ellis still functions as a normal human being and has gotten used to it more than anything. A young, hardworking man who questions his future, Ellis has to find out whether to embrace his future at face value, or run back home and hide from this big world he’s barely begun to explore.

‘Ryan’

‘Ryan Lockhart’ is a 21 year-old student, again, studying at the University of Derby. He’s an average height with short black hair and average build. ‘Ryan’ is also quite the comedian, cracking out a joke wherever he can and plays off the words and actions of the people around him. A very easygoing guy who isn’t so much bothered about tomorrow, as he much more prefers to enjoy the moment he’s in. Unless that moment is an exam.
