Hi, last week I launched a free online interactive 3D virtual theatre tour, designed to help people - especially students and teachers - stay connected to the magic of the theatre, while the real-world venues remain closed.

But to really convey the MAGIC, a theatre needs performers, right?

So for Phase 2 of this not-for-profit project, I'm looking for volunteers to initially provide audio recordings of their performances to create a life-like atmosphere. It’s also a great opportunity to showcase talent and highlight different drama groups.

Check out the full FB post for full details below.
If you'd like to be part of this or want to find out more, please get in touch – Thanks!

Hi,

With theatres around the world closed, last Monday I launched a free online 3D interactive virtual theatre.

So far, it’s had around 400 visitors and counting! You can check it out or read more about it in this blog post: https://www.brightimmersive.com/post/virtual-theatre-tour

At the moment, apart from a short initial audio clip of a theatre orchestra warming up, the 3D space is eerily quiet!

The theatre has immersive spatial sound and lighting, so for Phase Two of the project, I thought it would be great to give artists/performers an opportunity to reach new audiences via the 3D virtual theatre by including recordings of their performances.

For now, I’m only looking for audio clips, but this will evolve as the project grows. Recordings could include: -*monologues/duologues
*extracts from radio plays
*poetry or prose readings
*songs or music, etc.

All recordings should be less than 5 mins and copyright cleared - See full T&Cs on the website.

This is a not-for-profit project, so all submissions are voluntary. I will, however, credit every performer added to the theatre and include them in publicity.

If you’re 18+ and interested in being part of this pioneering and evolving digital arts project, please share your recording by going to: https://www.brightimmersive.com/submit

If you have any questions please post them via FB or email me: info@brightimmersive.com.

Thanks!

Ben

SDC INVITING ENTRIES INTO RECITAL AND READINGS COMPETITION BASED ON FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE THEME

Shropshire Drama Company (SDC) has organised a ‘record a reading’ competition based on the theme of Florence Nightingale.

To commemorate the recent 200th anniversary since her birth and a date that is now celebrated as International Nurses’ Day, people are being invited to submit a recited speech or poem (in part or whole) based loosely on the theme of Florence Nightingale. For example, the piece may be a poem about war, whether by Shakespeare or a present day writer, a Winston Churchill speech or contain the name Florence or the word nightingale; may have been written in the year that Florence Nightingale was born – 1820; or even an extract from one of her books and letters. Self-penned submissions from writers keen to step in front of the camera, as well hose not so keen but who have managed to persuade a friend or family member to read their piece, are also welcomed.

Prizes will be awarded for the winning entries and, depending on government guidelines regarding Coronavirus, SDC aims to organise an evening of performances later in the year. Winners will be announced on 13 August, the date of Florence Nightingale’s passing in 1910.

Entry is free and submissions can be made by individuals or groups of no more than four people, where social distancing has been observed. They should be no longer than two and a half minutes and sent to SDC by 31 July, 2020 using the following media:

1 As an attachment in a message to SDC’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ShropshireDramaCompany
2 File transfer using for example, Wetransfer.com or Dropbox, and emailed to shropsdramaco@gmail.com
3 YouTube link emailed to shropsdramaco@gmail.com

Commenting on the competition, chair of SDC Rosalind Garrard, said: “We are living during unprecedented and extraordinary times, which have not only disrupted SDC’s planned productions but may yet have a devastating on the arts as a whole and in the wider context, may alter all of our lives. To keep positive, to keep performance skills honed and to encourage creativity we are setting up this competition which we hope will stir the imagination and raise the spirits resulting in some truly creative and inspired recitals. We hope that anyone with any sort of dramatic interest will take up the challenge and run with it!”

For more information email SDC at: shropsdramaco@gmail.com.

Every Other Weekend ONLINE CASTING

The story of our project is about a young boy Adil who is seeking to rekindle a broken relationship with his dad Nas, but loses hope through the fearful journey the night unfolds. Whereas Nas is trying to seek another delay in his long line of debt with his drug-dealing bosses. With Adil’s naive call to action in trying to impress his father, he sees a glimmer of hope in rekindling their relationship. However, the opportunity quickly diminishes and is left to where it starts off.

We are on the hunt to find a young actor to take on the role of Adil. He is meant to be an 11 year old boy, with the ethnical background of a British South-Asian. The themes we explore in this story are relevantly important to today’s world, as well as taking note of the UK gang-culture. These themes have a tendency to alleviate kid’s childhoods towards the wrong direction and this is where we find solace to the matter with the story we are going to tell. We are looking for someone who could play the role with the capabilities of diversity in his artillery of emotions, authenticity to his relation with the character Adil and maturity necessary to fulfil the performance needed to be delivered. As you know, it is difficult to cast a young actor who can memorize lines and choreography accordingly. We thought about casting a 13 year old who looks 11, which is why we chose to approach Drama groups. We really hope we find our Adil in your talented pool of students.

The auditions would have to be done through self-recorded tapes, then we would proceed to virtual auditions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Warmest Regards,

‘Every Other Weekend’ Team

CASTING ADVERT
Production Title: Every Other Weekend
Production type: Short Film
Paying: Paying Job
Location: London (specific locations are TBC)
Duration: 4 day shoot + 4-5 rehearsals
Shoot Dates: (TBC) 28th August - 2nd September.
Deadline for Applying: Late June *

Production Details:
We are producing a short film called ‘Every Other Weekend’ prior to us commencing our fully funded feature film.
We are students from the London Film Academy, that run a professional set and ensure the safety of all cast and crew.

Story Outline:
Story of a young boy Adil is seeking to rekindle a broken relationship with his dad Nas. His dad is trying to seek another delay in his long line of debt with his drug-dealing bosses. With Adil’s naive call to action in trying to impress his father, he sees a glimmer of hope in rekindling their relationship. However, the opportunity quickly diminishes.

The shoot will take place over three locations around London. Likely to be in the same vicinity.

Due to these circumstances, casting for these roles will have to take place through self-recorded tapes.

The Director would also like to have 4-5 rehearsals with the actors for Adil and Nas, prior to the production. This will help build chemistry and confidence in the young actor’s performance prior to the hectic scenery of a film set.

Character Descriptions:

Character: Nas
Age Range: 35- 40
Gender: Male
Ethnicity: South Asian (Indian/Pakistani)
Characteristics: Is a bad role model. He is the wrong a father should not be. Initially you witness a kind hearted individual but he is incapable of taking care of his son and is frankly immoral.

Character: Adil
Age Range: 11-13
Gender: Male
Ethnicity: South Asian (Indian/Pakistani)
Characteristics: Adil is a shy young boy who has the naivety traits you would imagine of a young kid trying to seek his father’s love. He is seeking to rekindle his broken relationship but when he discovers his father continuing to be a drug dealer, he loses hope in the rekindling of their relationship. He gains his maturity by defining right from wrong on his own.
Specifications: Standard British accent.

Character: Deano
Age Range: 30-35
Gender: Male
Ethnicity: African Caribbean
Characteristics: Looks tough, is mean and gritty. Deano is Slim’s right hand man, who keeps an eye on Nas. Between Slim and Deano, Deano seems to be softer in his ways, even though he is a part of this aggressive business.

Character: Slim
Age Range: 35- 45
Gender: Male
Ethnicity: African Caribbean
Characteristics: He’s the authoritative, abusive antagonist of the story. He is the striking, realistic imagery a drug lord would actually be in real life. No morals, inflicting abuse on others that don’t comply with him.
