Actors needed for film

Criminology instructor Heidi Currie is looking for female actors! The next casting date is on Friday, November 27 at the New Westminster Campus from 4:30-5:30pm. Meet in room 3304B.

Heidi and director Lisa G. are making final casting decisions for re-enactment scenes needed for a documentary, Bedlam. Actors will depict women who lived in the Women’s Chronic Unit at Riverview Hospital in the early 1940s.

“This is a high-quality production, intended for submission to film fests, library collections and for classroom use,” says Heidi. Filming will take place in late January on a Saturday or Sunday for 6-8 hours.

During the shoot, catering will be provided and as a thank you from the producer, all the actors participating will have their names entered for an assortment of gift cards including Chapters and SuperStore. Each participant will also receive a DVD copy of the film and will be listed in the credits. For more information, email currieh@douglas.bc.ca
