Staff actors needed

The University's Student Education Service is seeking actors for filming on Tuesday 30 September.

We are casting for a series of training film clips for the University’s Student Education Service. We are looking for staff confident at acting in front of a camera to perform scenes relating to student support.

You will be acting alongside student and young actor volunteers playing the parts of students and will provided with a detailed scenario to ad-lib.

We are looking for staff to play two female student support officers and one male academic.

Venue, date and time
All filming will take place on the main University campus on 30 September. Staff should be available from 9am-5pm on the filming day. It is unlikely that you will be needed for the whole day of filming - exact timings will be confirmed nearer the time. An informal briefing meeting will be held on 17 September, and it would be helpful if volunteers could also be available for that.

Breakfast/lunch will be provided – we are unable to pay staff for their involvement or to cover expenses (eg for travel or childcare).

If you would like to volunteer, please send an email including the following information:

  • Full name
  • Job title / department
  • Contact telephone number
  • Email address
  • An outline of your acting experience (if any) – this is not essential 
  • Whether you are available for filming 9am-5pm on 30 September (yes / no)

    Email Roz Cumming by noon on Wednesday 10 September.
    For more information, please contact
    Roz Cumming or call 0113 343 1871.
