Project Overview:

Written and Directed by Hannah-Jane Churchman and Produced by Gareth Croft. A Short film as part of a second year film and media course at UWE Bristol.

“90 seconds of love” is a story that follows the journey of a 7 year old girl seeking to answer the question “what is love?”.We explore, through this girls memories, love as seen by a child.”

Casting Details:

We are currently auditioning for a voice over role with the aim to using a voice over throughout the piece to compliment the visual narrative. We are looking to cast a male or female between the ages of 5 and 8 years old and have a particularly ‘innocent’ tone. we have a very low budget for this project so unfortunately cannot make any payments for time or expenses. All actors and crew will be working on a voluntary basis.

The role will require the Actor to read a short page of script using their natural tone and accent. The Actor will be required for approximately 2 hours on the day of recording and will need to be chaperoned by a Parent or Guardian at all times. The ability to learn and recite a small amount of text would be beneficial but not essential.

Recording is due to take place on the 20th March 2016 in the Newport area. The date is subject to change.

Initial auditions will be conducted through email and will require the Parent/Guardian to record a short voice clip of the Actor reading a piece of set dialogue (Below). The voice clips can be recorded by any means and we suggest using a microphone app on a smart phone. The short voice clip should then be emailed to the address below alongside details of the child’s first name, age, Parents/Guardians contact details and address.

After reviewing auditions we will make further contact to arrange further auditions if required. We will try to contact all applicants but may not be able to contact all unsuccessful applicants.

Audition Details:

If you feel your child may be suitable for this role then please record them reading one (or both) of the two sentences below (script). The quality of the recording is not important at this stage.

Once you have made the recording(s) then please email them as an attachment to: gareth.croft@gmail.com with the subject line: Casting Along with the contact details of the Parent/Guardian, The child’s first name and age.
