Calling all Lancastrian Actors, Poets, Performers and folk with broad Lancashire accents. We are looking for multiple speakers to perform a newly commissioned text for the arthouse film – Hit The North by artist Matt J Wilkinson.
Matt is currently travelling the length and breadth of Lancashire via public transport to create poetry inspired by the people he meets and the places he visits. He is keen to explore if accent and dialect is relevant to the identity of 21st century Lancashire; and if language, dialect and accent matter when Lancashire is a county synonymous with diversity and multiculturalism. A key aim of the project is to celebrate the diversity of language within Lancashire.
Requirements for speakers
Deadline for enquiries – Saturday 24th August
We strongly encourage speakers of all ages, genders, ethnicities and backgrounds to take part in this project to celebrate and explore Lancashire’s diverse and rich wealth of accents and the different types of dialects spoken within the county.
Performers will be paid £150 for one full days shoot (9am – 5pm) and be reimbursed for travel costs to and from Blackpool. Food & refreshments will also be provided throughout the day.
If speakers can not attend any of these listed dates, alternative arrangements may be able to be made.
If interested, or if you have any questions, please contact Matt J Wilkinson via email firstname.lastname@example.org or for an informal chat on the phone (+44) 7541579120.
