We are looking to cast 11 lead characters, between the ages of 10-17.
The scripts are excellent, as is the production team, and the project really is a big opportunity for young actors. I am looking for actors from a range of ethnic backgrounds and physical abilities. I am keen to find really good young talent and you don’t have to have had previous experience, just a raw talent and desire to act.
SPARTICLES is a drama about a world with no adults. It is from the same team that created the award winning SUMMERHILL – Stephen Smallwood (The Day of The Triffids, Murphy’s Law, The Vice) is producing, the writer is Alison Hume (Summerhill, The Roman Mysteries, Rocket Man) and it is being directed by Jon East (Head of CBBC Drama, Spirit Warriors, Summerhill).
SPARTICLES aims to be the ultimate in child empowering drama. It will offer a vision of how life would be for children on planet Earth with no adults. Quite simply, it is a drama series for children featuring only children. In this simple premise, SPARTICLES is both suspenseful and liberating. The series will dramatise both the jeopardy and the opportunity afforded by putting children in charge of our world, and what’s more, in charge of saving it.
The series will be shot in Bristol for 13 weeks from Monday 26 July – we wish to cast as many children as we can from Bristol and the surrounding area but we will also be looking at children from all over the country. I will be starting castings in the week commencing Monday 19 April up until the beginning of May.
