‘CROAK’ will be a 15min drama/black comedy short film directed by Dom Lee. It’s been commissioned by Exeter Phoenix and will premiere at their Two Short Nights Film Festival in February 2023.

The film follows two strangers, a disgraced Television presenter and an alienated man, who form an uncompromising pact in an off- season coastal town. Family and the pain of estrangement are major themes. It’s a story which twists, turns and keeps you guessing before building to a dramatic conclusion...

Once complete, It's my intention to submit to festivals worldwide including BAFTA/OSCAR qualifying ones.

Maz is a former TV presenter who has been ‘cancelled’. A shell of the person they once were. What it means to be a Mother is a constant thought in her mind.

No specific accents or physical characteristics. The age range is an approximate guide.

Filming will take place In/around Torbay and Dawlish, Devon. The three filming days (approx 10hrs each) will be paid at National minimum wage (£9.50). Meals when filming will be provided and reasonable travel expenses covered.

Shortlisted applicants will be sent a copy of the script and asked to do a self tape. We’re especially keen to hear from South West based actors, or those with a Devon base but this isn’t a deal breaker at this stage.
