2. WANNA BE A PAID ACTOR? FREE CASTING SESSION FOR UK MADE FILM
This FREE casting session is a chance FOR YOU to star OR feature in an urban classic British movie alongside some fantastic well-known British actors and comedians. If acting is your passion or dream, experienced or not BUT YOU THINK you can cut it in front of the camera, then this wonderful opportunity could be for you.
Shooting for the film starts this April and they are casting NOW. The director is looking for a number of young people to act in the film including those who may not have had the opportunity to experience the film industry or to go to drama school; but still have what it takes and just need a chance. This could be that chance we hope it is. If you would like to cast for the movie then get in touch now. Obviously spaces are limited so first come first serve, although we will try to look at as many people as we can.
C.R.I.M.E (Creating Role Models In Media Enterprise) is a non profit scheme aimed at taking troubled young people, gang members and ex-offenders and introducing them to the world of TV, Film and Events. It was set up by ex-gang member, rapper and film director Fredi ‘KRUGA’ Nwaka in an attempt to help troubled youth and ex offenders not only launch a career in media and music, but also to re integrate those who have perhaps been alienated from society because of their history or associations.
C.R.I.M.E aims to divert young people away from violent crime through use of real life story telling.
If Only Film Screening at The Tavistock and Portman Clinic | FEB 2016
Creating Role Models has teamed up with the NHS (The Tavistock and Portman Clinic) to present an insightful evening looking into the world of gang culture and it’s effects from both a clinical aspect as well as from the perpetrators. The evening will consist of the film screening, key note speakers and real life testimonies as well as an opportunity to network and participate in a Q&A.

We aim not only to help the young people we encounter directly but to hopefully inspire their peers and the wider community. To this end ‘all publicity is good publicity’ and we welcome the support and interest from journalists and our National broadcasters.
WHAT WE DO
We use film and media to challenge, inspire and engage our young people. This forms the foundation to our workshops and the participants are involved in all aspects from conception to completion and all that occurs in-between. An example of this output is the short film If Only which you can watch online here >>>
The Back2Black Awards is an annual fund-raising gala conceived by Creating Role Models to celebrate and recognise the extraordinary contributions ordinary people have made to our community.

“If Only is a thought provoking and disturbing short film that deals with the reality and fall-out of street crime. My dearest wish is that every secondary schoolchild, especially in inner city schools, gets to see it. This is their reality. Schools and all child services should make it a priority to use this film as part of a workshop to inform children of the consequences of being a road man” Beverley Knight Pictured [Read More Here]
