  • Plenty of roles up for grabs - Auditions this Sunday at 1pm
Have your say

Aspiring actors are being invited to an open casting session at the weekend for a feature film being shot in South Holland.

Actor Steph Geneovese, who is taking the lead role in the action / thriller Dishonoured, which he has penned himself, is now seeking others to play both major and minor roles in the film.

Steph, of Holbeach, says there are plenty of parts for all abilities up for grabs – including the role of leading lady Janine, who will be played by a woman aged between 25 and 35.

Other parts still to be cast include members of a teen gang aged between 16 and 20 years old, gang leaders, villains, guards and numerous background extras.

“All the available parts are on our website and we would definitely encourage everyone who has a passion for film to have a look at what roles we have and apply for any they feel they can do.

“We just want the best the area has got – so hopefully this will encourage lots of activity and people will get involved,” said Steph, who has worked as an extra on shows including Sky Atlantic’s Fortitude and the forthcoming Pan movie starring Hugh Jackman.

Steph, who also works as a radio and mobile DJ, decided to write his own film so he could give himself a break and help others get involved in the industry without having to travel to London.

He has already pulled together a crew including professional cameramen and sound recordists who have all given their time voluntarily to help produce a professional film.

As well as actors, Steph has also been seeking financial backing for his project and earlier this month launched a fundraising campaign to raise £2,000 via online funding platform Kickstarter.

Dishonoured is the story of a former UK secret services agent dishonourably discharged after disobeying Downing Street.

He is forced out of retirement when his only friend mistakenly gets sucked into the world of a vicious mob.

* Open auditions will take place at 1pm on Sunday at the Women’s Institute Hall, Park Road, Holbeach.

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
