A FEATURE-FILM shoots in and around Shirley this summer– and the director is looking for someone to play the starring role.
The as-of-yet untitled project – by Rising Star Productions – will start its four-week shoot in August this year. But the film company needs a 10 to15-year-old boy, or girl, to play the main character.
Jessica Andrews, who lives in Shirley and is directing the movie, said it would be nice to get someone local for the role: “It would be a big help if they’ve got some experience, but it isn’t essential,” said the 30-year-old. “You can have years of training, but some of the best people haven’t had any – they’ve just got raw talent. Obviously, it would be great for someone who was looking to go into acting,
to put this on their CV.”
