Talkinglens Productions are a well established, high calibre company with an experienced team dedicated to providing home grown talent the opportunity to progress in independent mainstream film productions. Putting their mission into practice, they have launched an open casting call for UK talent to apply to star in their upcoming feature film “The Test”, shooting in April 2016.

“The Test” is a feature length black comedy about a maverick relationship between a student and his teacher. Kenny is caught cheating in his final A-level exam, by his teacher Mrs Bushnell. However, in return for not reporting him she wants him to carry out an audacious plan to kidnap her cheating husband.

This production will be filmed entirely in Yorkshire, UK, and a portion of the proceeds will be going to the Leeds Children's Hospital.

Talkinglens specialise in making films that deal with serious issues but with a sense of humour, and are currently in pre-production of their Spy Thriller ‘Kickback’ starring Famke Janssen and John Cusack and John Hannah slated for principal photography in the summer.
