I’m Emma, a producer from the National Film and Television School (NFTS) and i’m looking for some help with our graduation film, which we will be shooting in Maerdy for 7 days mid – late July (final dates still tbc). We are looking for local crew and I am hoping that you may be interested in helping initially with some casting, and later as an assistant when we film. I got your details from Screen Wales, apologies if this is no longer of interest.
What I really need help with is finding our two lead actresses, who we want to cast locally. The plan is for the director and her casting assistant to come to Cardiff on 10th June and stay until 18th. They will go round schools, youth groups etc to find cast. I’m looking for the third person for their team who can help wrangle 14 – 16 year old girls, help co-ordinate the week, film / upload audition tapes (so that I can view from here) and also to drive them from place to place. And here’s the really big ask, we really need to find a kind hearted soul to put them up as we can’t afford to accomodate them. They are actually a couple, so one bed would be fine!
If you think you can help, or if you know of someone who could be interested, please do let me know. The grad films from the NFTS do really well and are screened to top industry professionals so lots of exposure; one of last years films screened in competition in Cannes and another won a student Oscar! The director, Andrea, is one of the most talented I have met and has been nominated for a Scottish Bafta before, so i am certain that this will be a fantastic film. She is also lovely and a good house guest! Have a look at the website (link below) for more info about the NFTS.
I’m sorry to say we can’t afford to pay anyone but will of course cover petrol and give a bit of cash towards electricity / water costs. Sorry it can’t be more, we have an ambitious project and need to make a little go a long way.
I’d love to hear from you, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. Also, if you can help with the production, but not with casting, it would still be great to hear from you as i’ll be looking for two full time assistants / runners.
All the best,
