Casting Call: Actors interested in Work Experience to appear as extras in our short

At Polaris Film Productions ltd we need several extras for our upcoming short film Doris and the Pennies from Heaven. If you are interested in getting work experience as an actor/actress, as well as participating in an exciting project, then this is your chance!

We are looking for 8 individuals, male between 32-70 and female between 25-70, with some previous acting experience to appear as extras in the short in exchange of a valuable work experience. The shoot will take place the 10th of June.

We believe this work experience would be very enriching for you and also would be important for your future career, as this short film has been selected by the Eastern Edge, part of the prestigious Film London.

Besides, the short will get a lot of exposure, due to its being screened at the BFI,  Cineworld and festivals. We have a superb cast, lead by Mrs. Honor Blackman and Robert Goodman. The production value is really high as we have talented professionals who will shoot with the best equipment in great locations.

For these reasons, we think this short will constitute a great piece of your showreel.

In case you are interested, you can apply till Friday the 1st of June by sending us an email at with some information about you. We would also appreciate if you could send us a showreel or a picture of yourself.
