Student Film Needs 7 year old Girl (Aprox) Sheffield Area...
This is from Northern Media School, Sheffield Hallam University. We are planning to shoot a 15 minuets low budget short film, ”Water Baby”, and are looking for a child actress. This will be made by DV Cam format and be shot in Sheffield. Unfortunately this is an unpaid work, but we can afford to cover the expenses and certainly give a copy of finished film to you. Also there will be a public screening in cinema in Sheffield. The audition will take place Sheffield (London could be arranged)and the date will be around in the middle of September(I will confirm it soon). The shooting dates will be in the beginning of October in Sheffield.(extact dates TBC)
Water-Baby is an experimental/fiction short film in which a young mother, Lydia, takes her daughter for a walk by the lake. Lydia quickly falls into her habit of fantasizing both the past and the future, locking herself off into a private world. Her daughter, Nicole, seems easily able to occupy herself, throwing herself into her own imaginative world. But despite the massive differences in character and temperament between mother and child, their fantasy worlds keep intruding and impacting on each other. The story turns into a colorful waltz of fantasy upon fantasy, until the breakdown between imagination and reality, mother and child, reaches a dangerous crescendo.
NICOLE - child (around 7 year-old, Blonde hair)
Nicole is an energetic child with a vivacious personality and bright appearance. She is easily able to entertain herself, although beneath this independent streak is an anxious desire for her mother’s attention. She isn’t graceful, but has a strong and tactile personality that strives to make itself felt. She has a colorful imagination that is largely inspired by the outdoors. She loves the activity of being outside, and will find plenty to amuse herself with there.
Feel interested? Get in touch so I can send you the script and provide more information about this project. Please feel free to contact me if you have any question.

| 'Who Rules The Roost' appeal - BBC
It’s a BBC3 / BBC2 documentary series called Who Rules the Roost, which looks at parents who are trying to achieve a better balance between their working lives and their home lives.
Who Rules the Roost is actually one of the most successful series on BBC3. It has achieved the highest ratings of any factual show on the channel and has transferred to BBC2, gaining audiences in excess of 2 million. The series focuses on the work/life balance of modern family life. In each programme normal child care arrangements are suspended for a month, allowing each parent in turn to stay at home and look after the family for a two-week trial period. The experiments have often made for inspirational television.
The series has been so successful because it strikes a chord with the audience. The vast majority of working families, whether single parents or in a traditional parent structure, have to balance the demands of their working lives with their desire to spend time with their children. This is an issue which affects all working parents regardless of family make up. Programmes in the past have featured the whole spectrum of hard working people from managing directors to builders, from firemen to chief executives and have touched on several sensitive issues including disability and within-family adoption following bereavement. After the month experiment, couples sit down and discuss what, if anything, they have learnt from their time at home. In the past some families have decided that one or both parents could spend more time at home. Others have decided that their present childcare arrangements are perfect. Regardless of their decision, all of the families involved have described the experience as incredibly valuable.
The series has none of the negative connotations of some other shows. It is not concerned with bad behaviour on the part of children or conflict in the household. Rather, it allows participants to take time out from their work life to a fresh look at their domestic situation. The series presents a real opportunity for couples to show all the dimensions of their hard-working lives.
We are very interested in talking to families with performing children, who might be interested in appearing in the series. We feel that some parents in such families may have serious issues in terms of how much time their children need from them in terms of going to auditions and rehearsals. Perhaps they are looking for a different way to deal with their hectic daily schedules.
Filming takes place this summer. I’d very much appreciate it if you could include the attached paragraph to your website. Please do contact me if you’d like any more information,

| Short Film 'The Paper Boy'
ACTORS WANTED FOR 10 MINUTE FILM "THE PAPER BOY"
I need five actors between the age of 12 to 15 years. Four boys and one girl. Please note that three of the parts are non-speaking and very small.
The film begins at the end. We open on the paper boy lying, dying in the street after he's been struck by a car. The film is told in reverse as we follow the boy throughout the day as he goes about his paper round. We also see him encounter various people along the way. Eventually, we end up at his house and see him getting out of bed in the morning.
It's called the paper boy, not only because that's what he does; but also because it reflects how vulnerable we all are, and in particular, children. By telling the film backwards, I hope to evoke the sanctity of childhood and how precious those times are.
Still interested? It's unpaid, however, expenses and a copy of the film will be provided upon completion of the film.
