HERO MALE:

Due to the rigg we are using on set suggestions MUST BE be 6 foot or under 

Playing age 25-39 years old.

It’s set in 1880. Think HG Wells Time machine

Our hero has a timeless look. Which means his face fits in 1825 as well as 2020. He is not a perfect skin modely-type of guy. He is confident, fearless, and has lots of fun personality. He is comfortable in his body, coordinated and precise.

The action needs someone athletic but relatable So in a good physical condition; not a professional sportsman though.

This has a lot of physical performance. He needs a lot of stamina required to run a treadmill take after take. 

He should have a background Ideally dance & musical theatre maybe stunts/wire work?

He needs to be able to move graciously as there’s a sort of Movement choreography component in the way he’ll move and dodge obstacles. His performance, perhaps taking subtle cues from the physical comedy of Chaplin /Keaton / Matt smith  Doctor who without going fully slapstick. Especially as he struggles to protect the whiskey jar as he’s trying to duck, roll and leap over obstacles on a jetting treadmill.

—————————————————————————————————————-

5 male / female 

Walk-ons/ 2 maybe upgraded see above for fees 

( any height )

These roles will be asked to self-tape by request. But will need to come into the studio if needed for a callback ( TBC) 

They are playing friends that will sit around our hero guy in the bar.

Playing ages 25-39 years old. 

MUST BE  OF  CHINESE / TAIWANESE HERITAGE ( BORN ANYWHERE)

They should be aspirational, friendly & attractive.

PLEASE STATE HERITAGE WHEN SUGGESTING
