MALE & FEMALES AGED 16-25 NEEDED
‘Kissing Candice’ is an Irish film written and directed by up-and-coming visionary filmmaker Aoife McArdle who has already made a mark with her breath-taking music videos for U2, James Vincent McMorrow, Jon Hopkins, Simian Mobile Disco & Wilkinson amongst others.
KISSING CANDICE is a youth film with a darkly, mysterious subplot.
It tells the story of disillusioned youth growing up in a stifling, secretive and isolated community in the borders between Ireland and Northern Ireland. It centres around Candice, an imaginative teenage girl, for whom there is little division between reality and dreams. While the community struggles to comprehend the mysterious murder of a local boy, Candice finds herself dangerously attracted to Jacob, a stranger who may be involved with the gang suspected of the crime, and who are quietly taking the community under siege.
We are looking for:
Girls aged between 16 and 25
Guys aged between 18 and 25
NO ACTING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
What we need from you:
Anyone who is interested should email a short video (only about 2 minutes long is needed) of themselves to firstname.lastname@example.org
It is absolutely fine to record this on your phone or computer or whatever’s available to you.
Please tell us the following in your videos:
Where did you grow up
What are your hobbies – what do you get up to if there’s nothing else going on
Tell us the craziest thing you’ve ever done
What’s the strangest dream you’ve ever had
