Would you like to showcase your performing arts and media skills and be part of an original short film to be shot on location at The Deep in Hull?


Producer/Director Mark Franceschini, multimedia and IT officer at the University of Lincoln in Hull, is looking for cast and crew for his first independent film, an underwater romantic fantasy.


Students and staff from the University of Lincoln and Hull College will be involved in all aspects of production.


Filmed on location at one of Hull's premiere attractions, this romantic fantasy tells the story of a man and a woman who fall in love at the world’s first submarium. 


Two main characters, male and female, are needed for the film.  Both must be strong swimmers.  Extras are also needed to play visitors at The Deep which will be the primary location for the film.


Mark is also looking for camera operators and technicians who can help him with the exciting new production.


Principal photography is due to start in February 2004 and will take approximately three days.


If you are interested in joining the cast or crew, can assist with locations or would like to learn more about this project, please contact Mark Franceschini on 01482 311246 or email mfranceschini@lincoln.ac.uk
