Wanted: Bearded actor

Project S.A.M.

Recommended Posts

Hi there. Anyone here with a) a beard, b) some reasonable acting ability, and c) a day or two to spare over the next month or so?

We're looking for someone to play the part of a beach-dwelling hermit in a short film that will be around 8-10mins in length. It will be shot in three locations: Balmedie beach, a local supermarket, and an office. It would most probably involve a day with a fairly early start at Balmedie beach (probably a Saturday), and then another day shooting some short scenes in a supermarket (yet to be confirmed as to which one) and in a local office (which is free at the weekends).

Age requirments are fairly flexible, although we would want to avoid anyone too young. Say, anything from late twenties to a hundred would be workable within the confines of the script. Although it does require a dip into the water at the beach, so no-one with an impending heart-attack. Hopefully it'll be a warm day...

Also, beard requirements are flexible. The part allows for someone with a trimmed beard- the hermit has a swiss army knife so he would have been able to trim his beard and hair.

You don't need to be a trained or qualified actor, just someone who's maybe done a little acting before, and is confident of being able to do a convincing job. It's not too long, so there aren't all that many lines to remember.

We've shot some rough-and-ready comedy-type stuff before (see columbo look-alike wanted thread in this forum), but this will be a step up from that stuff- a bit more serious and professional. This isn't a paying gig, of course, but you'll get fed and hopefully have some fun in the process.

If it so happens there is anyone who fits the bill and is interested, reply here or send me a pm, or whatever.
