Lead Male Actor Wanted


Paid Position

The filmmaking team of Emma Dodds and Adrian Rowe – under the production name of Industrious Dark – are looking for a lead actor (male) in a new short film- 5 day shoot scheduled 10th October in Belfast. Auditions will be held Friday 11th Sep in Belfast.

Tom (25-35 yrs old)

Character Breakdown:

Tom is a normal, smart every-day guy who was diagnosed with diabetes nearly three years ago. Though reserved and guarded, he is easy-going with a good sense of humour.  A loss of confidence in his body has caused him to retreat from certain things he used to take for granted leaving him feeling weak and vulnerable and unsure of himself. At the core of his character is anger and resentment of his condition, something that fuels his obsession to return to what he was and something that he needs to deal with if he wants to move on in the world.

Prick is a topical drama around the subject of diabetes, showing the highs and lows and general daily life of a diabetic. The directors feel the subject is often portrayed inaccurately in films and would like to depict the condition in an honest manner but still keeping things positive. They’re coming at it from a different angle; a personal, realistic viewpoint- this isn’t about suffering, it’s just a lifestyle.

Prick was awarded funding through Northern Ireland Screen’s recent short film call. The ultra low budget of £2.5k means unfortunately they can only offer low pay for this role, to help with the five days shoot.
