Thread: Who's the cheapest UK 'name?'

    Default Who's the cheapest UK 'name?'

    Is it possible to get a 'name' actor in London for a short? Does anyone have any experience of getting a recognisable name / face in a short?

    Again, the usual 3 days of shooting, quick turnaround, not too many hassles in terms of location etc...

    This is one of those more luck than judgement things. Find some body suitable who is local and contact them directly or through an agent tell them who you are and what the project is and ask if they are interested in participating. Either that or get your cheque book out.

    1. It must be advantageous to the actor.

    2. Ask

    It really is that simple. Actors like to act. if you have a role which will challenge them and they can enjoy, you will be surprised what you can get by asking.

    If, on the other hand, you just want a walk-on name, so that you can get a bit of publicity for your film. You will find doors closing in front of you.

    It all comes down to the film you want to make. If an actor or actress finds something of interest in your project then it is completely possible. It may not even come down to money although I think it is important to pay cast (and crew of course) equity rates if possible. And also, unless they are a family friend or have a very clear direct link, only try to contact them through their agent.
