Boston College student Jack Howard is looking for a male to play the eponymous role in The Conductor, a short film which he is making as part of his media level 3 BTEC course.

Jack (17), who lives in Spalding, has a professional cameraman and crew in place and is using industry-quality equipment.

“I hoped that would attract people into helping,” said Jack. “But they find out I don’t have a budget and they lose interest.”

The film will be shot on Monday, April 17, at the town hall in Pinchbeck, from 9.45am until 5pm.

All actors will receive a credit on IMDb and lunch is provided on the day.

The Conductor is a short film about an orchestral conductor who is seeking the next star composer, but while he is out at auditions, notices a recurring theme.

To play the lead role, Jack is looking for a male between 35 and 50 who has glasses.

He wears a turtleneck or a suit, preferably black. The character is English and of average build and the actor will be required to provide his own costume.

Added Jack: “The finished film will be five to seven minutes long and be entered into up to seven film festivals.”
