The producers of ‘Field Trip’ would like to apologise to anyone who applied before the 26th as they mistakenly sent in the wrong email address. They would very gladly welcome anyone who applied before to apply again to¬†fieldtrip@tyrrell.co

A collaboration of students in the National Film School are holding auditions in August for a short film they’ll be shooting in September.

There are four roles in the film, two of which are children. They are Adrienne, female, 18-25, Finn, male, 18-25, Claire, female, 10-13 and Katie, female, 7-9.

The production would love to hear from any parents of kids who might be interested in the roles of Claire or Katie and from any young adult performers who would be interested in the roles of Adrienne or Finn!

The film follows Adrienne, a teenage girl torn between her desire to grow up and her need to hold on to the bond she shares with her two younger sisters.

Auditions will be on the 1st and 8th of August and the shoot will be over four days in mid-September and parents or guardians of the two minors would need to be there.

The roles are unpaid but transport will be paid for lunches provided so no one has to go out of pocket taking part.

The film will be shot across three locations: in a house in Dublin, in a stationary car near the house and on a beach in Wicklow. Most of the film will be shot on the beach.

There is a StarNow page with more details but if anyone wants to take part without making a StarNow account they can just email the production on fieldtrip@tyrrell.co directly before the 7th of August and an audition will be scheduled for them.

This is a child-appropriate film with absolutely no nudity, violence or bad language.
