MySpace seeks actors for first user-generated film

MySpace, the social networking site, is launching its search for the stars of the first user-generated film. A casting bus will tour ten major UK cities over, offering people the chance to audition via video cameras and laptops on the bus.

The site announced a tie-up with Vertigo Films and Film4 last month to offer online users the chance to feature in the world’s first, which will be called Faintheart.

The videos taken by the tour bus will be uploaded on MySpace and users will also be encouraged to upload a video of themselves acting out one of eight roles in the film as outlined on the film’s MySpace profile. The initiative is part of a £1m MyMovie MashUp project.

The video auditions must be uploaded by September 10 and the best entries for leading or speaking roles will be shortlisted and called back for an in-person casting session from September 17. The winner to be announced at end of the month.

The film is scheduled for release in October next year
