Auditions for a fairy tale film

Please see the information from the fantastic Chagford Filmmaking Group below:

'Sir Lanval' Auditions - Friday 12th February - Venue: London Bubble Theatre Company, 5 Elephant Lane, London, SE16 4JD

The Chagford Filmmaking Group are auditioning for the lead roles in a 52 minute film of a twelfth century fairytale about a handsome young knight who falls in love with a fairy. It is a strong actors' drama with complex characters and relationships set in the court of King Arthur. Filming is in Devon and Brittany in May this year.

The Roles:
Sir Lanval - lead role - a young knight, playing age 20, French accent preferred but not essential, needs to move well and have a certain aura of innocence and beauty (sufficient to attract a fairy!)
Tryamour - the Fairy Queen, playing age 20, ability to dance preferred but not essential.
King Arthur - playing age 40, minimum height 5 ft 10.

Fee £500.

Preparation - we will email lines to learn and a synopsis of the story.

We also have other speaking parts to cast from amongst the auditionees although these will be unpaid. Expenses will be paid.

Shooting dates 16th-30th May 2010 with a 4 day intensive rehearsal weekend 23rd-26th April.

The budget for the film is around £20,000. The 58,000 euro award also covers a book, an exhibition, and the distribution of DVDs of the film to tourist centres across England and France.

Our co-partners are "Le Centre d'Imaginaire Arthurien" in Brittany.
