We are looking for a young male actor (18-30 yrs) to play the main character of a comedy sketch made for BBC3 Online.
The title of the project is The Legend of EpicMacro89.
The short comedy sketch aims to represent the gaming subculture and lifestyle in a funny and entertaining way. The story involves an average boy who starts viewing life as a game; aging as leveling up, studying as collecting XP, social interactions as an RPG game, his personal belongings as quest items to complete his main mission: to become a succesful photographer. While finding parallels between the gaming and the real world, he realises that life is not hard at all if you think of it as a game.
Real life and 8bit adventures mixed together. Think of it as a short version of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Shooting will be in Manchester, and it will take 3-4 days. We are planning to shoot in last weeks of April/beginning of May.
