Listed by View details

The Brain Tumour Charity are looking for a confident, comedic actor to powerfully deliver the message that - brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young adults under 40. Although, the key message of this video is obviously incredibly sad, we are using parody and visual comedy to reach a wider audience than videos we have produced in the past, in hope that people will watch and then share the video. The 90 second video will be used on social media and web and will parody social and viral trends to gain viewership from a wider audience. We want the video to be bold, brave and unlike anything that has been produced in the charity sector before!

The style of both the filming and dialogue will be similar to 'Dollar Shave Clubs' advert

The shoot will take place in a photographic studio just outside of Croydon with the backdrop being a white infinity wall. Dates are TBC but will be in February or early March.

Lead actor in viral charity video.

Confidence and comedic delivery is key, whilst also having the ability to reel it in to deliver the key message of the film in a serious (almost aggressive) manner - brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young adults under 40, but yet they only receive 2% of funding from research into cancer. There will be weird and wacky things happening in shot whilst you deliver the script, you will be delivering your lines directly to camera.
