UK auditions – Reading Room, a charity running an online story across digital platforms this summer set in 1940. It’s based on the lives of five fictional characters living their lives through the Battle of Britain. We need to find five actors who can dress up as these characters for an afternoon for a photoshoot. The photos would be used during the campaign from June – mid Sept, across the characters’ blogs, Facebook and Twitter accounts. They may also be used in some PR around the campaign.
The photoshoot will take place on Thursday 3rd June, with costume fittings from 1pm and photoshoot lasting up until 7pm.
Payment will be £100 per actor with pizza and refreshments provided.
