Produces are looking for a female, aged between 18 and 35, who has previous acting experience in paid speaking roles.

The actress who gets the gig will have to really ‘embody’ the character and make it personal to themselves. As well as this, the lead must able to be ‘immediately terrified’, ‘draw tears’ and make viewers feel and see that the presence of phantom figures ‘pressurises you’.

The film will pay their lead £250 per day but if an actresses day rate is higher they will be ‘open’ to discussion for the ‘right’ lead. Expenses will also be paid, including travel costs and accommodation fees.

Shortlisting for the film is currently underway and producers are recommending people apply as soon as possible, you can apply on starnow.co.uk/listing/1160302/female-lead-required-thriller-short-film-250-tbc/
