Two Actors Wanted for LGBTQ Short Film

Two Actors Wanted for LGBTQ Short Film

London, UK
Listed by View details

We are casting our two leads in a powerful 5-minute short film that challenges and explores homophobia in the sports industry.

'Playing the Game' follows a young, gay footballer struggles to come to terms with his sexuality when faced with an impossible decision in an industry that refuses to accept him for who he is.

Synopsis: Aaron is an ambitious, semi-professional footballer in a successful career. Happily to his fiancé in an upmarket apartment, he is living his best life. At least that’s what the public sees. Aaron has a secret that he fears will destroy his career. He is in love with Tom. But he lives in a world where he can’t have both. Will Aaron finally accept his sexuality out on the pitch or continue to lead a double life behind closed doors?

We have a very clear and unique style we are bringing to Playing the Game. Aaron and Tom met through their love for 70s jazz and Aaron's apartment very much reflects this, it is his expression of his sexuality, a place where he can be himself without judgement.

The film is being produced by a hardworking and passionate student team at METFilm School. It's 7-minutes long and will be shooting on the 7th & 8th June in West London.

Shooting will be on Monday 7th June and Tuesday 8th June.
We will be casting via self-tape.
