A mysterious ghost tale in which the spirit of a famous jazz guitarist, who led a troubled life with his family, passes on his legacy and his guitar to a promising aspiring musician (unbeknownst to said musician), whilst giving advice on family. A dual lead piece consisting of only these two characters in a short interaction, the role would be vital in the film's production.

I'm a film student in Basingstoke, not too far from London. I'm inexperienced as a filmmaker so am looking for someone with patience as I work my way around what difficulties may be encountered. It should, however, be a short and simple shoot, likely only consisting of one day of filming. This film would be used for my film A level, though also likely released on a public platform such as Youtube.

I am looking to shoot the film in Basingstoke, in an antiques shop with their permission.

Whilst this is a student film, I am aware of travel costs for some, and the commitment to travel and work, especially in today's climate, and I am willing to pay for the work and time put in.

Nothing physically demanding is required, only a mysterious and knowledgeable atmosphere, with a hint of mischief.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - Student Film

Expenses paid - Travel costs to get to the shoot, and any other essential costs required. Also willing to pay for the work itself if that is an essential requirement
