Short film Casting Notice


Project name: Saphír
Production company: Small Wolves Productions

We are currently developing a narrative short film set and filmed in Co. Wicklow. Filming will take place in April 2024 (tbc) and will have a duration of four days, with three days rehearsals. Rehearsals will take place in Rathnew and filming will be at various locations in the Arklow area.

We are looking for a deaf actor with the visible look of 16-24 (but they must be over 18).

A brief outline of the film:
The film is set and will be shot in Arklow, and follows a teenager for a day as they wait to work unloading a fishing boat in the evening. It address their poetic perception of the world around them while they deal with the loss of their mother, and culminates with an unexpected magical ending. This will be a love letter to the Wicklow coast that makes disability and grief accessible to a wider audience.

We are open to actors and non-actors but please keep in mind this is a central and challenging role so acting experience would be beneficial. If you are interested please send a short message and your resume and/or link to your showreel to: [email protected]

This is a paid job.
