Haunted Yorkshire Needs You...
The Haunted Yorkshire team are looking for volunteers in their next venture.
‘Tales Of Terror’
We built the website, we wrote the books and we’ve investigated the locations?
Haunted Yorkshire are looking for outgoing people who can assist with recreating the ghosts stories that we reported, investigated and wrote about.
We’re aiming to film around 40 short ghost stories and publish them on the internet. Each story will be based in the Yorkshire area and shouldn’t take too much time, we will provide all the costumes needed, all we need is the actors?
The parts we’re looking for people to play are: The ghosts themselves, witnesses to the sightings and extras.
Have you got the spook-factor?
Age: All ages needed.
18 parents’ permission is required and parents will need to be present during
The parts: Male and females of all ages and stature.
(Plus we need horses and riders)
Experience in acting: Preferred, but outgoing personality and willingness to follow director’s requests will be sufficient.
Q: How long will I be required for?
A: We have a number of parts and a number of films to make, but each film will be on average of 10 minutes in length. We understand that time is precious and we will aim to film the required part as quick as possible.
Q: What days will you film?
A: Like most people we also have full time jobs so have to fit the filming in when time permits, however, we plan to film most shots on a Friday evening and during the weekends. However, we can arrange times to suit.
Q: Have you done any of this type of work before?
A: Yes, we have already produced a few videos that have been successful and we have received some great feedback, this is why we’re looking to expand. However, we don’t have the right people to star in the films; there are only so many parts 2 middle-aged males can play.
Q: Do you have any other parts available?
A: We are looking for support staff also, so if you think you can assist with; camera work, makeup, costumes and scene setting or anything else you think will make this a success then please contact us.
Q: Why are you doing this?
A: We have over 30 years of knowledge of ghost sightings in Yorkshire and we want our work to continue for generations to come. People are reading less and less, and social media seems to be the way forward now, so this way the stories we hold will continue into the future and won’t be forgotten.
Q: Do I get paid?
A: We don’t have a budget to pay people, we self-fund all of this work we do, the idea behind the production is to ensure that the stories continue for years to come and don’t disappear from history. However, we will be applying for Arts funding, so should this be successful then this may change.
Q: What do you get out of it?
A: Be a part in a short film replaying a part of local legend to share with thousands of people who share the same interest as us. Plus show off your acting skills to your friends and family. You never know it could get you a part in a television programme or film, all the famous actors started somewhere!
Q: Where will it be aired?
A: The films will be published on the Haunted Yorkshire website; this currently receives over a million hits a year, plus our very own youtube channel and facebook/Twitter pages.
