FILM EXTRAS WANTED!
For our short film “A Piece of Coal” we are looking for men and women between 17-‐80 to play miners and miners’ wives in the 1980’s.
When: Thursday 21st of July
Needed: 20-‐40 miners and miners’ wives (men and women)
Time: All day (09:00 –17:00)
About the project: “A Piece of Coal” is a script written as part of the “Mining the Memories” project. In this project, the personal memories and experiences of the participants are being used to produce a series of films exploring the history of Yorkshire mining communities, particularly with regard to the 1984-‐85 conflict.
The films are all made in partnerships between professional practitioners, academic researchers, senior participants, volunteers and Northern Film School students. It’s an intergenerational project where everyone can learn from each other, but which is also overseen by professionals. The “Mining the Memories” films will be shown at
Leeds International Film Festival, Sheffield Doc Fest, Bradford City of Film, and Labour Film Festival in Manchester in London.
Expenses covered and food/refreshments provided. For more information and/or if you are interested in being part of our project on one or both of these days, please send an e-‐mail with picture to: L.firstname.lastname@example.org
