Looking For: 3 actors.

Mother’s Day is a three-minute film in production at the University of Westminster. Encompassing a team of seven Film BA students, the project will be filmed on a Bolex camera, utilising Kodak 16mm film stock.

This story follows our protagonist, Stan, through a consecutive set of unlucky events. Exposed to his new life as a student, Stan is making the most of the freedom from his parents and up keeping any idealised image they may have of him. After a rough and hazy night, Stan awakens handcuffed to his bed, as well as finding tape around his mouth.

In the midst of his disorientation, his eyes are drawn to his bedside calendar. To his horror, he realises his parents are on route to his accommodation for a Mother’s Day visit.

Looking for 3 friendly actors looking to start their career and get some experience on shooting on a set, and on real film stock. All expenses such as food, travel are accommodated for.

Stan Penny: A young university student, must look young.
David Penny: The father to Stan, must be middle aged and up. (must be able to drive)
