VOICEOVER WORK. INFO FROM LOUISE TOAL, TV Producer, Milestone Inventive

“I’m working on a TV promo for Culture Night and I’m in search of voices from Limerick. I’m looking for male and female voices from 9-18 and from diverse backgrounds. 
Voice recordings of the script below can be recorded on WhatsApp and sent to me on 087-2365189 by Thursday 29th July if possible.
A payment will be decided after selection.”
(Note from Nigel: Use your own accent and your own personality. Conversational style, it’s not a poem.)
Say your name and age, and you attend the Limerick School of Acting, then say the lines:
The world slowed down but it never stopped.
We simply paused – an unplanned hibernation,
Locked down with our lives on hold…
But that time wasn’t wasted
It was a chance to simplify,  to energise
To nourish our creative souls.  
A chance to reflect on what really matters
To rewrite the script
And to quietly dream
Of great new beginnings
While we waited to emerge from the shadows
Shaking off the safety nets
And ready to live – to really live – again.
For all the world’s a stage
And we are the players
We are the creators
We are the music makers
We are the writers
We are the artists We are the athletes
We are the dreamers
The time has come
Let us awaken!
Let the curtains rise!
Let us show the world…
This is how we dance!

APRIL 3rd

My name is Emily Power and I am a producer with Stori Creative. We are currently trying to cast for non speaking roles for a promotional video next week.
The couples would need to be 40’s – 60’s
And a family with the children aged 4 – 12
If possible we would like these to be real life couples/families as with covid, it would be safer to have the actors already in a bubble.
If anyone in your school is interested if they could please fill out this form
Kind regards,
Emily

So whatever your “family” is why not get in touch with us and find out more about taking part in the newest quiz on Irish TV!

Adults

Paid: 3 Night Shoot. May 30th May 31st, June 1st.
Location: Limerick/Clare
Squawk 7700 is a short film set in an air traffic control centre on a night shift. When a crisis strikes, three air traffic controllers must find their humanity even as their procedures guide them. The film’s three main characters are all challenging roles which display the gravity of the job in this character-centric ambitious short film. Directed by Dave Fox, Produced by Pete Moles and Dan Mooney
Cormac
Early 20s. A young, enthusiastic but naive Air Traffic Controller. He’s new to the job, nervous in his new position, but with depths of character he has yet to discover. Cormac follows the rules partially because he thinks that matters and partially because he needs something he can rely on in his life.
Alan
50+. Seasoned and self-assured, Alan is a man defined by his tenure, he’s earned respect in his own head by virtue of being around long enough. He believes he has all the answers, largely because he’s never had to test that theory.
Maeve
40+. Maeve is a professional, though she like to oscillate between being the crew’s ‘mammy’ and reminding her colleagues that she is in charge. Commanding without being overbearing.
Auditions will be held in Limerick City on Friday May 10th, any interested parties should contact us in advance to receive their audition material and arrange a time.
Send expression of interest to [email protected]gmail.com

March 2016

CASTING CALL:
We’re an experienced two man crew working on our third short film, each of our previous two shorts have gotten into numerous festivals. They can be found here:
Our next film is “Flicker” a short experimental romantic drama. An artistic spiritual meditation about a man following a vision of his deceased wife as he wanders through the city they lived in and sees memories of them younger.
The characters required are as follows:
Anna (age 22-30)
Anna is the main visual focus of the film.
We’ll need someone with good physical acting. There’ll be three variations required:
1) When she is dead, it’ll require a gracious/spiritual/elegant presence on screen.
2) When she is alive during flashbacks of the relationship, someone who can physically portray happiness, love, caring and fun.
3) Another flashback in the relationship when there’s an argument so anger/aggression will need to come across.
Simon (age 42-50)
The film follows an older Simon as he wanders through the house, city and last resting place of his deceased young wife. He sees visions of her as she leads him through these and sometimes interacts with her.
The voice-over for the film will be provided by this actor so exceptional delivery of poetic narration will be required.
Simon (age 22-30)
Younger version of Simon, will need to be somewhat physically alike (mainly in stature) to the older version I cast and to be honest we’ll cheat a lot of shots by not showing much of your face, doing mainly back shots and using the camera as POV. Would require good physical acting, mostly in a playful/happy/emotional way opposite the actress.
Probably a good role for someone starting out or building a showreel – because of the limitations of the role we can offer headshots and immediate footage in return.
It should be noted that there’ll be almost no dialogue in the roles as the whole film will contain classical/cinematic music backing a poetic voice-over as narration (only done by one actor – the older male).
The film will be shot mainly in Galway (Tuam, Connemara and the city itself) and maybe some in Limerick, depending on securing a location.
Schedule wise we’ll tailor the shoot around the actors we get as best we can but due to work commitments it’ll be weekend shoots. I’d envision now that the actors for Anna and older Simon would be required for 3 days and younger Simon for one day. The current aim for shooting is June/July spread out over two weekends.
Unfortunately there’s no pay for the actors but all transport, accommodation, food, etc. will be paid for and high quality footage will be provided for showreels.
To apply, send your acting CV with a PHOTOGRAPH and SHOWREEL (if possible) to [email protected] with the subject CASTING.
