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 a top quality actor as this will be a great opportunity for actors who are struggling to springboard from being unknown to having a major role under their belts. We are holding Yorkshire based rolling auditions until mid March, you will not be considered for these auditions unless you are Yorkshire based, if you are Northern but not Yorkshire based you are welcome to send in a self tape if you fit the description and are of the high standard we require. If you are Southern or Midlands based we are not hosting any additional auditions in your vicinity so please do not apply, the Surviving Actors audition was our only intended London audition so now we are turning our attention to Yorkshire actors again.

This project is for local Yorkshire 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 the 9th of March (re-arranged from 24th February) at our office in Leeds and another date to be decided for late March, please apply quickly and understand that we will not pay travel expenses for the audition. We will be filming for 2/3 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 short film credits minimum (please provide IMDB links and trailers). As well as payment we will provide a copy of the film for your show reel, an IMDB credit and invite to Leeds and other Film Festivals.

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.
