I am looking for three actors to help with the filming with a script that I have completed that I would like to make, which is an extract of a TV show I created for a English Language coursework piece called ‘The Associates’. Depending on the quality of the final video, I may also enter it into any local film festivals too.

To set the picture, there are three characters in this clip- Maurice, Dale and an unnamed character simply referred to as ‘The Boss’. Maurice is part of a rising mafia family operating within the urban area, with ‘The Boss’ being at the head of this company. Maurice is known as the ‘associate’, the one who does dirty jobs for higher ups, being contracted to kill Dale. Maurice has had a shady past, having his parents killed at a young age. However, Dale holds information about what happened to Maurice’s parents which he didn’t know. Now knowing about Dale’s information and after ‘The Boss’ sternly warns Dale about the upcoming danger, Maurice stops Dale from leaving his house, not leaving until he learns the truth about his parents and completes his contract…

The filming will take place on two-four between 27th March-10th April all in the evening, we can come to an agreement on what day suits everybody. Two of the actors for Maurice and Dale will be needed for two or three days, the other actor for The Boss for only one day. I am open to working with people of any kind of acting level. It’d be preferable to be from Southampton, Bournemouth or Portsmouth ideally but if you live outside these areas please do still apply anyway as again I’m flexible. Unfortunately as I am a student this will be an unpaid project but will be good experience for you, a chance for networking and if it gets into any local festivals a possible chance of exposure. I will be able to send you the final video when it’s done for portfolio purposes too.

Maurice

Maurice is the main character in this extract. His character is one who starts off being calm but assertive, but eventually getting into an angry and demonic sort of state based on how desperate he is to get answers- like he’s not being himself. He is the one who is in control so will need to have an authorative presence on the screen using body language and expressions.

Dale

Dale is the other main character in this extract. Although at the start of his confrontation with Maurice he’s trying to be calm and assertive like Maurice, Maurice wins in a battle of words and Dale is reduced to a vulnerable, weak state who will try anything to avoid the inevitable whether it be pleading, begging e.g. Really, he is a coward and doesn’t have the overbearing presence that Maurice has.

The Boss

The Boss is a character who we don’t fully see in the extract, having a phone call with Dale in a very dark room hiding their face. However we can tell by their voice, which is deep and authorative that they are in charge. Would possibly also be comfortable smoking, or if not will be seen drinking a fake glass of alcoholl. Will need to hear an audio extract for this role, so if I contact you I will let you know of an email address to send voice recordings e.g to.
