Actors Needed for Kramer vs Kramer Sequence

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

!!URGENT PROJECT!!
Our aim is to produce and direct a short film sequence from Kramer vs Kramer, incorporating an aspect of theatre and live performance.
NOTE: Experience in theatre would be preferable, but not required.

Genre: Drama.
Length: 2-3 minutes.
Location: MediaCity, Manchester.

Production Process: The short piece will be filmed in a Brecht style, with a camera circling the entire scene repeatedly, with moments of the scene being frozen by the central character (Billy). This camera footage will be sent to a projector via live feed, which will allow a small live audience (max. 12 people) to watch both the production process and the resulting camera footage at the same time.

Your Skills: The roles of this piece requires an insight into improvisation, as the 'frozen' timeline within the film will require an understanding of the dynamics between the characters.

Ted

Ted is a single father who had to adapt his lifestyle, to ensure his son is cared for, after previously relying on his wife (Joanna) to deal with the responsibility of parenthood. Ted does not show much affection towards Joanna and can sometimes come across blunt and heartless. He is confident and cocky, but loves Billy as much as Joanna does.

Male, aged 30 to 50

Applications closed 27 May 2021.

Billy

Billy is growing to be an independent young man, and wants his parents to love him for who he is rather than simply for the fact they are trying to win him over. He loves his parents both equally, but wishes they would put aside their differences and acknowledge his feelings as well as their own. Billy is hurt from his parents past arguments, though he is growing to be a confident individual who is family oriented and often feels outspoken.
