Call for Actor/Actresses 'Alan' Student Feature Film

Fee: Voluntary
Contact Sam Toller (st14727@my.bristol.ac.uk)
I'm planning to shoot a feature film on a shoestring budget over the summer. 'Alan' follows the title character, a 17 year old who feels like he's reached the peak of his life - a stunning girlfriend, great grades, the potential to go to Oxbridge and published writing - but now it's all falling apart around him. A coming of age film in the vein of Woody Allen, with a young yet weary protagonist whose niavety and idiocy seem to outgrow his intelligence and sensitivity. 
I plan to shoot in Bristol and London, mainly during June but also other times. The film focuses on the younger characters, but I will need a handful of older actors to play the adult roles, of which there are four or five. This is unpaid, as it is a passion project and anyone working on the film will be doing so out of a desire to put a great film together. For examples of my work, please visit vimeo.com/samtoller
If you have a playing age of over thirty (preferably over forty) and are interested in being cast in one of the roles (including a suave yet antagonistic proffessor, a comedic driving instructor, a realistic and pragmatic mother and an irritatingly proud dad) please send me a resume, headshot and any links you deem appropriate, and I will send over a script extract for you to read and record! 
Please feel free to ask any questions! I am also keen to get BAME performers involved in some of these roles, although dont let this put you off - I am very open to new portrayals of the characters I have written - I just want to see what people can do!

Call for Volunteers - The Bristol Shakespeare Festival

The Bristol Shakespeare Festival is a volunteer run organisation, playing host to some of the UK’s most impressive touring theatre companies every July. The Festival looks to use iconic, unusual and much loved spaces to bring Shakespeare to life in our magnificent city.  
The Bristol Shakespeare Festival would not be able to run without the passion and enthusiasm of its volunteers.
During the festival weeks (8th June – 29th July 2016) we have ten touring theatre companies descending upon Bristol. With over fifty performances, we are looking for a dedicated team of festival volunteers to help these events run smoothly.
Roles will include: ushering audience members, taking and checking tickets, collecting on-the-door payment, acting as a point of contact for audience members, helping to ensure smooth-running of performances, responding to queries and working with the volunteer manager to maintain a safe environment for all attendees.
All volunteers are able to watch performances for free.
A training session will be scheduled prior to festival start date. The festival manager will liaise with all volunteers to determine date availability.
CRB/DBS certificates, first aid training and previous experience in similar roles would be useful, but are not a requirement. We are looking for people who want to experience the festival as part of our team – so enthusiasm, a love for working with the general public and a passion for festival-theatre is all we need.
If you’d like to be involved, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Volunteer Manager to express your interest:
Fabi Melegari - volunteers@bristolshakespeare.org.uk

We look forward to hearing from you!
