Virtual Reality Project Call Out: Paid Opportunity for Actors

We are on the look out for 4 actors for an upcoming Virtual Reality Project.

As part of a digital festival in Autumn 2021, The Core at Corby Cube are undertaking a project to explore 360 degree Virtual Reality Theatre making with 5 local playwrights and 5 local Directors.

Thinking 360 will feature 5 x 10 minute plays that will be filmed in 360 degrees and experienced by an audience via VR headsets as well as online in Autumn 2021. The plays will be filmed in multiple outdoor locations over a flexible 5 day shoot schedule with advance prep taking place indoors in the theatre.

We are seeking 4 x performers to be part of this exciting new project at The Core and require actors to fit the following characteristics:

Male 30’s/40’s
Male 20’s/30’s
Female 20’s/30’s
Female 70’s

Performers may be needed to appear in 2 or more of the plays.

Preparatory work will be undertaken on the 14th and 15th June with Directors indoors at The Core at Corby Cube. It is requested that performers be off book by this time.

Filming will take place on a rolling schedule on the 17th and 18th June and again on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd June. Performers will have a rolling rota from the 14th to the 23rd June with no more than 5 full days of in person working required across that period.

The project fee for performers is £550 including expenses.

All scenes will be filmed outdoors in Corby Town and surrounding estates.
