I have been asked to circulate a casting call for several Birmingham based 15-20 year olds and 1 older guy (40-50) for a film about the riots - Broken Society.
Shooting this month in Birmingham. Details to follow.
Directed by Actor/Director Neil Reidman

Related event plug - I have been trying to get a Birmingham screening of highly acclaimed US film The Interuppters and it's happening this month at The Drum. It's about people in Chicago who are proactively trying to stop crime by interrupting perpetrators.
I would be delighted if you can make it - and at £2.50 a ticket, why wouldn't you give it a try? Roger Ebert calls it one of the greatest Oscars snubs EVER (well that's how I read it) in his blog. See if you agree.
