Actors and artists and musicians are wanted to take part in a film about an artist group from Bedford.

We are working in partnership with The Zabludowicz Collection, Stanley Picker Gallery and WORKS|PROJECTS to support Bedford artist Andy Holden to create a major new commission,

Towards a Complete History of MI!MS.

The commission will include film, large-scale sculpture and performance to explore the output and legacy of the MI!MS (Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity) artistic movement, which Holden founded with Bedford school-friends before training as an artist in 2003.

All of this new work will be produced in Bedford and this is your chance to be a part of it!

Artist Andy Holden will be making a new film and is looking for eight young actors (aged 15 – 26) and a group of extras, to feature in the project. This will involve taking part in a few performance and performing some dialogue from auto-cues.

Open casting will be held on Saturday 23rd March at the Bunyan Meeting Rooms, Bedford from 10.30 – 3.30pm.

Information about the film, and the parts available, will be provided on the day. All are welcome to come and meet the team, find out about the roles and make a short audition or screen test. Filming will take place across a few days in

June and July later this year. All those cast will be paid a fee and all extras will be paid expenses or a contribution for their time.


Recent films by Andy Holden have been shown at the Tate Gallery in London and broadcast on Channel 4.
