Director: Chris Lafosse. A 1 minuet short war film, shot in a News/documentary style. To be shot in Greenwich, early/mid October.
4 actors are needed to be soldiers in a present day war zone.
-1 platoon commander
The viewer is thrown into a war zone, with the news camera being turned on. 2 section of a battalion attempt to assault a complex, but an air strike called in, lands short, on the troops.
This is low budget, using a lot of CGI. We will not be using blank firing weapons. There will be the use of blue screening on set to produce larger scale warfare.
As part of this, you will be given military training. Myself and an assistant on set, have a background with the Army.
There will be a complete breakdown of what sets apart, professional looking soldiers from ’Hollywood’ looking soldiers.
It will be a 6:00am start. This will be an extremely tough day, both physically and mentally.
Food will be provided.
Travel expenses will not be paid.
I need Actors who are reliable. If you say you will be there at 0600hrs, then you will be there 5 minuets before.
There will be a very rigid rank structure on set. I tell you to do something and you do it, as quickly as possible.
Please send a cover letter, CV, show reel to:
