Actors Required for Superhero Web Series

Manchester, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

Elysiad is a new superhero universe inspired by the comic book genre. The Elysiad stage show is the second production of theatre company Carnival of Eternal Light. The Elysiad web series is the debut production of Carnival’s screen and media subsidiary – Eternal Light Adventures. The web series will be filmed over the coming months with filming having already commenced on episodes 1 and 2 in Manchester City Centre. All filming for the web series will take place at locations in Manchester and Greater Manchester.

Elysiad tells the story of superhero The Libertine, eccentric Professor Razor and overworked Detective Benson as they try to hold the pillars of the once almighty society of the city Elysiad together. Together they must foil supervillains such as the time stopping Ticking Shadow, the demon host The Hex, gun wielding Bullett and the extremely powerful Speculum among so many more.

Sadly this position is currently a voluntary position. We do find this situation deeply frustrating and Carnival/ELA are currently working to ensure performers do receive a wage for our projects in 2020. We are a new company and with no arts funding we are constantly trying to progress to the next stage where we can pay ourselves and our artists a wage. Paid work is always the priority and we will always insist that such work must come before our own. We shall be planning and organising the work around people’s schedules so that you’re not missing any other paid opportunities or day jobs.

Most roles have already been cast and we are now looking to fill the remaining roles via video audition. We are looking for Actors with a North West base, ideally Manchester, who are exciting and versatile performers.

We look forward to hearing from you!
