Actors Needed for a Coming of Age Teen Comedy/Drama - Student Project

London, UK
Listed by View details

Hi ! I'm Hanna, I'm a young film-maker currently studying film at Queen Mary University of London.

'Motive' is an intersection of a cultural moment in time and coming of age. The title being motive as its London slang for a night out. In short; the main characters Lily & Khadijah go about their school day until Carmen (our antagonist) catches Lily’s eye. Lily forms a sort of highschool crush on Carmen and then at the end of the school day Carmen invites Lily and Khadija to a party.

This project is sort of a passion project that has been in my mind since 2017. I plan on submitting it to film festivals including LFF (London Film Festival).

I'm a student filmmaker but I understand the craft to a professional level, I've studied a level film and continue to study it to a degree level. I was accepted on a course that was funded by the BFI and there I directed a short film that won the audience favourite award at it's screening.
