Although they are in “early pre-production”, film planners are looking for two locally based (Fraserburgh/Pennan) residents for two different supporting roles in the movie.
Kahleen Crawford Casting – who are conducting the search – said that they are not needed for all of filming in the paid role, with no experience needed.
The two characters that are needed is one male and female.
Sandy is a male who is aged between 16-18 and is described as being charismatic, comedic, street smart and fearless.
As well as this, he is also a livewire and is able to handle himself, but is charming with it.
A female is needed to play Jessie who is in her early 40s and is Sandy’s mum.
‘Important to Stroma that we find people from the local area’
Described as “a small role”, it comes at a very important moment in the film, with the actress needing to look old enough to have a 16-18-year-old son.
A spokeswoman for Kahleen Crawford said: “It is important to Stroma that we find people from the local area in Fraserburgh/Pennan, so it’s a great opportunity for someone to act in a feature film.
“We are asking that anyone who is interested apply via the email@example.com email only, so we can keep the applications focused and not get lost with our other projects. We don’t want to miss anyone.”
In the email to apply, people must include their name, age, phone number and where they are located.
As well as this, a recent clear photo(s) is required (including a full-length one) and a short, two to three minute introductory video with a bit about themselves, such as job, hobbies, family etc.
