Casting for two leading roles in short film

Director: Henry Blake
Producer: Victoria Bavista / TwoBirds Entertainment
Dates: 20th October - 23rd October
Location: London
Budget: 30k (All roles are PAID) 

The Film:
‘County Lines’ is a national issue involving the use of mobile phone ‘lines’ by groups to extend their drug dealing business into new locations outside of their home areas. 

The writer and director Henry Blake has spent 5 years working in prisons and with young offenders and through first hand interviews he has written a harrowing, powerful and thought provoking film that will raise awareness to the public as it illustrates the exploitation of very vulnerable people. 

This short film has been financed to become a feature film in 2017 and hope that the roles we cast will come onboard to the feature film the following year. 

We are casting for:

TYLER - Lead role
13 Years (will consider slightly older&younger)
Mixed Race
London accent

A tough young drug dealer, street smart, dangerous. Has come from a very troubled background. 

SADIQ - Lead role
18 Years (will consider slightly older&younger)
London accent

Leader of the group. Strong, remorseless, dangerous. Has come from a very troubled background. 

If you would like to be considered for one of the roles please email a recent photograph to countylinescasting@gmail.com
I will do my best to get back to everyone.

Experience is not necessary, we are looking for someone who can identify with the project and the character. 

The content of the short film is fierce and contains violent scenes so please consider this with friends and family before submitting. 

If successful i will be in touch to provide you with further information. 

Thank you
Ollie Gilbert
