75-76 Camden Street Lower,
To whom it may concern,
We are scouting for teenage & adult non-actors (i.e. no experience required) to act in our drama feature film The Other Side of Sleep. We are looking for adults from the Midlands from the age of 20 to 75.
The film is about a young insomniac factory worker living in a small community. This feature film is written and will be directed by Rebecca Daly, the acclaimed Irish director of Joyriders. The film is being developed with the assistance of the Irish Film Board.
As the main thrust of the casting process, we are scouting across the Midlands to look for men and women with the confidence and natural charisma to perform on film. What we need is a short interview with you on camera, where you'll be asked simple questions to record your accent and look to show the director & producer. These tapes will be used purely for audition purposes and will never appear in the public realm.
We will also run open auditions in your area, which we will advertise in the local papers and radio stations. If we have interviewed you already, there is no need for you to attend these open days, unless we request that you do so.
I ran drama workshops in primary schools all over Dublin for the Fastnet Films feature film Kisses seeing over 2,000 children and all over Cork for the forthcoming feature film The Runway. I also cast the upcoming feature One Hundred Mornings.
If you are the parent of a young person whom I have given this sheet to, please feel free to ring me on the mobile above to arrange to meet and interview your son or daughter with your consent when you could be present.
I must stress that this is a large scale casting trawl, so the chances of getting a part are slim, but please e-mail me if you haven't heard anything in the next 4 weeks and I'll be able then to let you know if you've been chosen to be part of this Irish feature film.
