Gecko is excited to be working on a film adaptation of their stage production Institute. 

We are seeking a 60+ year old male performer to play the small role of the dying father of Karl / ghost, who is performed by Ryen Perkins-Gangnes.

The performer should be very facially expressive, and ideally would have a willingness to learn a few lines in German. The role will consist of falling out of shot to symbolise Karl’s feeling of loss and helplessness (see video on our website and a short movement based duet. 

The performer will be required to attend:

  • 1 day of rehearsals /costume fitting in Ipswich in w/c 25 November (likely Thursday)

  • 1 day of filming on location outside Ipswich in w/c 2 or 9 December. 

The fee for this engagement will be £200 per day.
