Director: Joe Ravat - Producer. Hi Everyone,
My name’s Joe Ravat and I am the producer in a new short film called checkmate.
Checkmate is about a regular guy who’s stuck between fantasy and reality in this new short film comedy by an upcoming British director (details withheld presently at directors request). You know when you plug your music in on the tube and you hone in to the “Zone” right up to the point where you close your eyes and let go of yourself into the music, only to realise moments later “hey everyone’s watching me?” yep that’s him ;)
Without a shadow of doubt this is a great opportunity for upcoming actors to get involved in something creative, fun and inspiring. This could be the stepping stone to life your career. I will say no more, but to say, those who do take the time to approach me, will be considered for the possible feature film to be cast soon ;)
Can everyone please email your headshots and CV’s to myself at email@example.com Please put in the heading what role you are applying for. Those who are shortlisted will be contacted in due course. All headshots and CV’s will be stored for guaranteed future productions. Presently this production is not being funded, but all involved will get a copy of the final film. This is not an amateur student film production etc.
Apply to: Joe Ravat, firstname.lastname@example.org
