BUDDING actors are being sought by a Sheffield-based company shooting a short film set in the north of England.

Impact Films has issued a ‘casting call’ for ‘Essential Travel’, which it wants to enter into film festivals across the UK in the hope of winning plaudits and awards.

Scripted by Paul Bridges, the film is a serious, ‘kitchen sink drama’ style piece set in the north of England and examines the impact cancer has on the lives of a young woman and her family.

Simon Gamble, executive producer, said: “People know Impact for our corporate promotion work, especially with solicitors and other corporate sectors.

“However, as spring approaches, as a tangent, we decided to experiment with a short form entertainment-focused piece, with the hope of entering it into various film festivals.

“It promises to be an exciting new field.”
