Production Type: Film (Short)
Location: Sandwich, Kent
Salary: £100 a day
You will be playing the role of Abigail Clements. As the story takes place, Abigail Clements has passed away. Yet we begin to understand Abigail more in the film as there will be one scene where you and your husband are happily walking along the cliffs of Dover as he is recording a home-made video back in the 90s when people had to buy cameras specifically for that purpose. As the film progresses we discover that your husband, who has built a makeshift pyre in your back garden, has been unable to cremate you on his own and has kept you in the spare room until he is able to do so. This is where Jana, the protagonist of the film, comes in as she helps a grieving man say his goodbyes to his wife in a manner of his choosing.
Abigail Clements was sweet, mild-mannered, aspirational and a massive royalist. After retirement, her and her husband George moved to a lovely cottage in Kent and have lived there ever since. At the beginning of the story, Abigail has been dead for about 3 weeks, and it\'s definitely starting to show.
As we are looking to film a scene of Abigail and George enjoying the cliffs of Dover when they were both in their fifties, we are looking for someone who, with the right make-up can look anywhere from 55 to 65.
