Full Details of Job / Opportunity

Looking for a brilliant female and male actor to play the lead roles in a short film, ‘The Ugly’. Set in the 1800's, the film challenges our perception of beauty and investigates our need to belong. The film will be entered into film festivals and used as a pilot for a TV series. £150 per day, two days work.

AGNES (playing age 19)

A mute feral creature, kept imprisoned from birth and with little human contact, who finds herself suddenly freed. She's deeply malnourished, and is considered as ugly, a ‘freak’, and yet she has more inherent beauty and strength than all the wealthy 'pretty' townspeople who poke fun at her. She has the extraordinary ability to see the world without filter or prejudice. She arrives without any sense of self or the order of things, and despite great hardship and brutal upbringing, has somehow been gifted with a vivid integrity.

Please only apply if you can say yes to the following;
Are you available on 15th October (daytime) to audition in London?
Are you available for filming in West Sussex from the evening of the 17th November to the evening of the 19th November?
Are you thin enough to pass as malnourished?
Could you pass as a 19 year old?
Do you have awkward facial features (or are you happy to wear extreme make up)?
Do you have evidence of acting experience in film or on stage?

FRANK  (playing age 27)  

A tall, hulking itinerant with the mind and heart of a young child  - who longs for company, who yearns to be be part of  something - but continually finds himself outside, away from the rest of humanity.

Please only apply if you can say yes to the following;
Are you available on 15th October (daytime) to audition in London?
Are you available for filming in West Sussex from the evening of the 17th November to the evening of the 19th November?
Are you at least 6 foot?
Could you pass as a 27 year old?
Do you have (or are you happy to grow) unkempt hair and facial hair?
Are you strong enough to lift an 8 stone girl?
Do you have evidence of acting experience in film or on stage?
