SHORT FILM casting call

Role Information

Ages: Young,Adults

Gender: Male/Female

Fees: Unpaid

Location: Dublin



This is a casting call for “Clues” a short student film (part of the Filmbase Digital Filmmaking Course) to be shot between Friday 30th March and Sunday 1st of April  2012 (The shoot will take place over a day and  half  in Dublin).

This is a no-budget production and, therefore, the role is unpaid. There will, however, be lunch provided on the day. The successful actors will also receive a copy of the film afterwards (in lieu of getting paid).

Rehearsals might be needed so flexibility and above all reliability is essential.



William is trapped – firstly in his own duvet cover and then in his bed room. His girlfriend, Sam, gets a kick out of locking him in their bedroom. His only means of escape is by solving the clues she has left for him. But she has another trick up her sleeve… She is recording him on handy cam, and she corners him into singing and dancing (badly) in order to get out.

The Roles

WILIAM (20’s): – William is besotted, with Sam. He is lucky to have bagged her and he knows it. He is easy going and enjoys her antics.

SAM (20’s): – Sam is (take deep breath) fun, playful, artsy, geeky, confident, unselfconscious, energetic, loving and sexy in her own way.
