BUDDING actors are being called up to audition for a film being shot in Blackburn.

The short film, called ‘Throw Me to the Dogs’, is due to be shot during February and the makers are calling on teenage boys from the area to come forward for to star in it.

In particular, boys from Blackburn aged 11 to 15 are being sought.

The film is expected to be set in the Griffin area, where one of the directors, 21 year-old Aaron Dunleavy, grew up.

It follows the story of a Sunday league football team, managed by 43-year-old wheeler-dealer Quinny, and the relationships that develop within the group.

Producer Helena Lageder, from the University of the Arts London, said: This film will be represented in an honest and realistic way, using real kids from similar backgrounds to that of the characters. We are not looking for experienced young actors but more a group of lads who can be completely themselves, with dialogue developing through improvisational workshops that demonstrate how they would react in similar circumstances. Therefore no acting experience is required.”

Helena added: We are looking for seven energetic, characterful and lively young British white males.Two of the characters will play lead parts whilst the other boys will be in supporting roles. The project will involve shooting quite intensively, every day in the February half-term. Successful applicants will then be further contacted and asked to attend workshops closer to the time of shooting. Due to budgetary constraints we are unable to pay a fee to our cast. However, we will be covering expenses and food. Upon completion of the film all cast members will be invited to screenings and festivals.

Castings will take place at Blackburn Central High School. Auditions will take place December and January.

For more information call Helena on 07999641647.
