Casting Actors for Short Film Shoot

We’re casting two actors for an ultra-short film, inspired by the events of the Challenger spacecraft and its crew.

The film will be shot over two days in Bristol, UK. The character of Christa will be required for both shoot days, and all other roles required for just one day. The shoot dates currently planned are 8th-9th December, however these are subject to change. All roles are non-speaking (as there is no dialogue in the film), however a small amount of physical improvisation will be required, so actors ought to be comfortable with this.
