Cast and crew are required for the latest short film project at L’Institute Zoom’s temporary Nexus Art Cafe studio, as we begin production on our remake of Girls Of Unfortunate Climes.
“Climes” is the only documentary known to have been made by UNIVERSAL EAR creator/star Harley Byrne, and follows the exploits of rival girl gangs in Manchester, 2012. Beginning as a straightforward anthropological film, events get out of hand when the technophile SPACE RACE and primitivist LONELY GIRLS clash – and Byrne is caught in the crossfire.
Planning and pre-production begins Monday 28th June. The 10-minute film will be shot on digital video, mobile phones and Super-8mm over the last week of July, with a budget of £0. All are welcome to pop into the studio, observe and contribute, with the following jobs in particular still available:
The Space Race - will also play silent roles of the Lonely Girls:
Selena Jolly (“tall, beguiling”)
Eve Witherspoon (“strong but unremarkable, charmless, forceful, insecure”)

Neva Perdue (“of slight build, the child of the group, of Slavic descent”)
Milo Byers – broken-down I.T. support worker (brief nudity)
Former astronaut (retirement age)
