"Falling in Love" - Actors and Crew - Short

Seeking musicians and singers in Godalming, United Kingdom

I am now in post-production on a short film that I have written and need some seriously good talent to help finish things off. Is this you? As part of the funding brief, I am looking for people from the Godalming and Guildford part of Surrey as a preference, but hey, if you're good...LoglineA grieving girl and her psychologically damaged boyfriend find that their love for each other offers a way to escape from their oppressive surroundings. The Birth of the ProjectWhen I first had the idea for this film, I had never even read a script. I have spent the last few years drawing on my passion for film, photography, writing and design to learn as much as possible about film-making - the most collaborative of arts - and this project is the result.I have been heavily involved in a local film society for almost a decade and wanted to find a way to involve local people in my passion for film. I have been engaging with the community to find locations and talent that I can meld into a team to make this film happen. I hope to take the result to film festivals around the world.A Legacy in the MakingOnce the project is complete, I want to offer it as a special to film societies who want to give their membership something more than just another film showing. This would include giving a description of our experiences of the film-making process, followed by the film itself and a Q & A session afterwards. It could also be available to colleges as a real-world example of what goes on.Progress to DateThe rough cut is done and ready for a test screening. I will then be looking for vocalists/musicians to help with the soundtrack.
