“There is nothing like a dream to create the future.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
We would very much like to hear from people who would like to become involved. We are looking to make contact with local actors, as well as film crew: 2 camera people, editor, sound recordist, a DoP, and a production assistant. If you are interested in joining us as crew, in any of these roles, please contact us. Please scroll down for the link to the casting page, for current performance vacancies. The notes below are also important to all who want to be involved.
A few things to note: 1) This is an ongoing project. Some performers may be needed for one episode, others for several episodes. If you take on a role lasting more than one episode, you will need to be certain that you can be available for the filming of further episodes as required (this varies by which character you are playing). We are hoping to raise enough to pay performers and crew once the first few episodes are up and running and publicized, this all depends on the funds we can raise for the production. Episode filming dates will also depend on funding gained for the episode. Any payment would be on a self-employed basis and is on an episode-by episode basis, dependent on funding raised for the episode as against the production costs of the episode (which will also vary). 2) Everyone involved needs to be reliable, and work in a manner consistent with the South Devon Players members rules of conduct. 3) Filming locations will begin in the Devon and Cornwall area, however later locations, for the Gorbeau Tenement, Paris, street scenes for Montreiul, etc may be further afield. 4) Some scenes may be filmed at night, or specific times of the day. 5) Some acting roles may require combat scenes, and some film shoots may involve acting in, or near, scenes of violence, or extreme distress. 6) Any minors (playing the Thenadier boys, Little Cosette/ Eponine/ Azelma, convent schoolgirls, Petit Gervais, street children) MUST be accompanied on set at all times, by a parent or legal guardian. 7) You must an excellent timekeeper, and be prepared to learn lines, take direction quickly, wear period costume, work in a fast-moving team, and be confident with being filmed & photographed both in crowd-scenes and close-ups. 8) Film is a very different medium to theatre. You will be required to arrive on set at specific times, please be aware that between your scenes, you may be waiting two or three hours for your next scene to be filmed, or to get on set. Filming day schedules are also approximate, and can suddenly alter during a shoot due to technical or environmental issues. CLICK TO SEE ROLES OPEN FOR CASTING AND HOW TO APPLY
