On Tuesday this week (November 19th) we held our first auditions. Whilst not as many people turned up as we hoped, we learnt that this was probably down to us organising it for the centre of Bristol at 5pm. So any further auditions will be a more negotiable time slots! However, we still had a great evening with the people that did attend, with a lot of fun being had with the read throughs and improv scenes. However the limited amount of people meant we couldn’t work as much as we liked, and also the dark lighting of the bar we rented meant that getting footage was a nightmare. So we still have a lot to do before the pilot next week, but cast wise we are very happy with the initial steps we are making. Everyone seemed to understand the tone of the film, as well as our focus on character development and relationships. From the promising start we’ve now had with actors, we are all feeling more confident that we can pull off a professional feeling film.
After a long meeting we decided on the three main actors. It was a hard process due to all the amazing people we interviewed however had to come to a decision which we were extremely pleased with.
Below are the three actors StarNow profiles and group photo:
As well as keeping in contact through meetings and phone call we also created a Face Book page in order to log down what we were doing. The page gave us opportunities to send ideas, pictures , competitions and overall develop as a group.
