Casting for young deaf actor – Sorbier Productions

We are a Glasgow based film and TV production company, currently seeking a deaf child to play a role in a short film. The child must be aged no younger than 9, and no older than 11. The film will be shot in the central belt of Scotland, for six days from 22nd July 2019. The film is being made for the European Broadcasting Union, in conjunction with the Scottish Gaelic language channel BBC ALBA.

We require a young performer with confidence, ideally with some acting experience but this is not essential if they are prepared to tackle a challenging role in front of camera, with a full professional crew. They will also be required to work closely with a dog, which features heavily in the script, as well as experienced adult cast.

If you wish to put your child forward for this exciting part, please contact the film producer Patsi Mackenzie on

All enquiries will be treated with confidence.

Please kindly respect the age range, and the filming dates, which are inflexible.
