Call for male runners for a film shooting in Edinburgh

13 May 2016

film runEggbox is producing a short film to accompany a live performance by Red Note Ensemble. The piece of music they will perform is ‘Workers Union’ by Louis Andreissen. It will take place as part of the Lammermuir Festival, underneath Concorde at the Museum of Flight. This part of the film involves a pack of men in suits (aged between 20 and 60 roughly) running through the streets of Edinburgh. The idea is we shoot a pack or peloton of men running from different vantage points. It’ll involve sprinting short distances with plenty of rest breaks in between. There is no dialogue – no lines to learn! It will be shot in central Edinburgh in the mornings of Sat 21st and Sun 22nd. In order to minimise interruptions from traffic and pedestrians it will be very early starts (exact time tbc) to have as empty a cityscape as possible. We need 10 – 15 runners in total – ideally it would be great if folk could do both days but we could possibly have a few different faces from one day to the next, if one day is all you can do.

This is a low budget production so we can’t afford to pay a fee, however we will supply food and refreshments throughout and a ticket to the performance in September. Get in touch if you are interested // 0781 344 0590
