AUDITIONS

Sam Trott- Little Boy

This is Samuel James Trott. I auditioned him


for the role of the little boy within my short
film. I wanted the character to look innocent
and be likeable for the audience watching. I
auditioned Sam by handing him a five-pound
note and seeing him mess around with it and
pull different facial expressions. I think Sam
really worked well in playing this role as he
made himself appear fragile and cute. This is
obviously the style I want to go for within my
production. I thought that Sam’s acting
performance was good. As well as this, I
thought Sam looked the part. His messy
blonde hair and big blue eyes reinforced the
idea of innocence which makes him the perfect candidate for my short film.

Toby Johnston- Little Boy

This is Toby Johnston and he is auditioning


for the role of the little boy. I thought Toby
was good at acting due to going stage
school he has that experience with acting
and knows how to take direction and do
different facial expressions. However, even
though Toby is amazing at acting I don’t
think he has the same connection on screen
as Sam has with the other actors. The
chemistry and relationships between each
character really makes the production and makes it more realistic for the audience. As
well as this I don’t think Toby looks the part in terms of the vision I wanted to go with,
also he doesn’t look related to the characters in which I have casted to me his mum and
dad. Overall, I think Toby would be a good backup if the actor Sam Trott pulls out of the
production, but otherwise I do not think he is right for the part.

Kathleen Butterworth- Older Woman

I auditioned Kathleen Butterworth for the


role of the older woman. I asked Kathleen
to hold onto the five-pound note and do
an improvisation with it. She decided to
look into the money to check if it was real
and valid. I thought this improvisation
worked really well and fitted with the
character of the older woman as she is
paranoid and cautious that the money is
real. Because of this I thought the audition
was a real success. To add to this, I
thought Kathleen looked the part as she
was in the correct age category to play this character, in her sixties. She looked older,
which was the look I was going for, however she did have a innocent look and naivety
about her. This meant her character would come across as likeable and interesting to
the audience. From a more practical stand point due to my actress living locally it will
make filming easier and more accessible for me, especially if I need to do re-shoots.
