Penny Pepper is looking for some actors for a short film she is making.

At last I've written a film script and I'd really like to get some good actors for this 5 min short, which is for a competition.

Naturally, this is an EXTREME micro, micro budget. It's me doing everything on my Sony DV Cam. I can feed and water actors and pay very basic travel out of my own pocket as a thanks. And give a DVD at the end.

I've been making films for about a year now, and you can see some on youtube.com and at 4docs

The short film 'Diary for Lawrence' was chosen for a showing by Shape at an event in Wimbledon recently. I also made it to the shortlist of the She Writes women script writers scheme.

I need to film it within the next 2-3 weeks hopefully, but I will be scheduling it quite tightly, so wouldn't really need anyone for more than an hour or so.

If disabled actors play the Drs they have to be able to 'pass' as non-disabled - but happy to use non-disabled actors in this context. Will do very brief auditions if I get a lot of offers.

Sophie Partridge will play Jackie.

Please email me via email address: pennylion[at]hotmail.co.uk

Thanks for your help Penny P.
