Role and Production details
- Pay type:
I am making a short film adaptation of a story from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 2nd most famous series "Professor Challenger." The Challenger books were sci-fi/fantasy books set in the late victorian/early edwardian era. One of the most famous books of the series "The Lost World" would serve as the inspiration for Jurassic Park.
Unlike Conan Doyle's self-controlled, analytical character, Sherlock Holmes, Professor Challenger is an aggressive, hot-tempered, dominating figure
The episode will go out on Youtube as well as the popular Sherlock Holmes/Sir Arthur Conan Doyle website - No Place Like Holmes. It will likely prove to be interest to fans of both Challenger and/or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Also, to a lesser extent, Sherlock Holmes fans.
You will receive an IMDb credit, your site of choice will be promoted on both the NPLH website and Youtube video, and you will be permitted to use the footage elsewhere should you wish. Also, bear in mind that the website has great outreach, so this is something that many people could see you in. I, of course, will give you a very glowing recommendation too.
I also offer free editing of showreels to any actors that may need it.
Date is not yet set, but likely looking at a weekend Mid-December or early January TBC. Looking to start scouting actors for it now while I make this determination. Lesser roles will only be required for 1-2 hours. Lengthier roles will be for approx 5-6.
If successful, there is the possibility some of the other stories may be adapted.
