Performers sought for new film shot in Skye
July 22, 2015
We’re looking for a group of young people (aged roughly 18-20) to feature in an experimental children’s film and nature study by the award-winning artist filmmaker Margaret Salmon.
The film will capture the experience of a young girl who accidentally becomes lost in the woods one evening while camping with her family.
Eglantine is Salmon’s first long form film and will combine a range of cinematic genres and techniques; from carefully observed wildlife documentary to narrative drama, hand drawn animation, live musical performance and interpretative sound. It is being made for cinema release.
– Must be available on Skye on 6 August (10.30am-9.30pm) & 7 August (9am-4.30pm)
– You should ideally be aged between 18-20
– You need not be a professional actor or musician
– We need one person who will perform a song (on any instrument) or play an instrument without vocals
– You should ideally be used to camping
– You can apply as an individual or a group
There is a fee of £100 per person (£150 for musician)
Casting will take place in the ATLAS Arts office under the Gathering Hall in Portree on Monday 27th July.
