A King’s Lynn screenwriter is looking for local people of all ages and abilities to join the cast and crew of a new film to be shot on location in the King’s Lynn area from the 24th of July to the 1st of September.
The film will feature the King’s Lynn Youth Theatre as well as showcasing local adult and child talent both in front and behind the camera.
For the Last 12 months, Riarmato productions in collaboration with The King’s Lynn Youth Theatre have been working on an original Screenplay called Reprieve. The film focuses on a family that suffers the tragic loss of a son and while the mother figure finds the mechanisms to begin to come to terms with the loss, the father does not cope at all.
The father becomes increasingly more isolated from his family and friends and eventually loses his wife and family home. Realising that he has nothing left to lose, the father embarks on a radical form of therapy that pushes him beyond the realms of his own reality into a supernatural world of magic and wonder.
Screenwriter Luke Goold said “Our eventual aim for the film is to have it screened at all of the major film festivals inclduding Cannes, Toronto, New York, Venice, and London. The method by which we are shooting makes the project unique and ambitious.”
Luke Goold wrote the screenplay and has also taken on the major task of directing the film. He is also the creative director of The Kings Lynn Youth Theatre, and has been a drama practitioner for more than 10 years. The project is being produced by Martin Strals.
“We are still looking for cast and crew of all ages and abilities to be a part of the project. Tomorrow – Saturday June 23 – we will be holding open auditions for the remaining adult and child parts as well as taking names of people who would like to be a part of the crew from 10am to 1pm at the Red Cross building on Austin Fields in King’s Lynn.”
Anyone interested should attend tomorrow, Saturday June 23, or if they are unable to make the session tomorrow they can contact Luke on 01553 771619 or 07549 596679.
“Reprieve is being entirely self funded at the moment, so we would ask that anyone interested in the project would need to work on a voluntary basis. I’m confident that the quality of the experience will be payment enough for all involved.” said Luke.
