especially you Swindon/Wiltshire folk! Toast is playing this coming Friday 23rd of July at the Swindon independent international festival hosted at the MECA. We will also be having a live Q&A with Paul Cooper and Oliver Rogers in person! Tickets on sale now from the MECA’s website for only £6.60. Come and join us for a wonderful evening of independent film!
Hi! As you know, we’re responsible for weird and wonderful projects such as Toast, The Black Spot and Full Disclosure. Even though the world is a bit crazy and lots of things have come to a halt, this hasn’t stopped us coming up with new ideas. We have something big coming up and want to know if you want to be involved, featuring a well known friend of Wet Toe.
We are currently casting for a new short comedy…at the moment this is unpaid but we will cover travel, food and you will be able to use this in your showreel. If we do secure funding which we are hoping to do, this may change, but be assured we do this for the love of film and want you to have as brilliant an experience as we do. These are all non speaking roles but are featured characters. We only require headshots and acting showreels as there are no lines, or just send us a video explaining why you think you’d be good for the role.
We require the following characters for filming in Swindon. This is likely to cover a weekend and at the moment we’re looking at filming in Early Autumn.
A father type- someone late thirties to late forties. You will be playing a standard middle class father.
A daughter- if you are over 18 and up with the latest trends, you could be perfect!
A young woman– if you are early twenties and can pull off a stereotypical ‘chavvy look’ this could be your breakthrough!
A nudist couple- this is implied and there will be no actual on screen nudity (underwear). If you are over forty and can pull off looking as normal as possible, you could be right for this role! Ideally if female we’d like it if you had long hair, but this can be worked around.
A hipster woman- we’re looking for someone who can pull off quirky so if you like to be different, this could be for you
An older woman- this is for someone who is over fifty and can pull off an elegant look whilst being a bit prim and proper.
2 weeks ago, Oliver sat down with Daniel from To Tony Productions to chat about his career so far, to take a look at what he’s working on next. He also delves deeper on what it’s really like making a feature film with next to no money!
Although we know it’s been a while since we last posted, we are absolutely overjoyed here at Wet Toe HQ to announce that our new short film, Toast, starring none other than ‘This Country’s’ Paul Cooper, is finally at the end of post production. Here’s an exciting first look of the trailer – release date TBC soon! It also features exciting new music from none other than the wonderfully quintessentialProfessor Elemental, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
Happy new year! With a new year comes a new project from us and our first podcast, Camp Fire chat with hosts, Oliver Rogers who is joined by his co-host and (star of some of his films) the one and only Dave Delmage! Join the boys for some crazy stories and fresh takes on life, as well as some weekly mystery fish! New episodes every friday.
You can get the show on Achor, Spotify, Baker, Radio Public, Google Podcasts and Pocket Casts so far! So take your pick, sit down, pour a drink and let the boys put a smile on your face!
Hi all you lovely people! Even though the current pandemic has changed a lot for us all, we’ve somehow managed to find a way to keep on doing what we do best- having weird and wonderful ideas and bringing them to life. With winter on its way, we’ve sat down, gotten toasty and put our noggins to work.
We are working on something equally brilliant and exciting for all of us at Wet Toe Productions and can’t wait to share it with you.
Keep a look out for upcoming news on this top secret project that features Britain’s most prolific peeper, we’re sure his ears will be burning!
We are thrilled to share a recent interview that a few members of the Black Spot Team did with Every Thing on the Table.
Join lead villain Eden McDougell, Producer and Editor Doug Kirby and Writer/Director Oliver Rogers as they discuss how they are coping in the world today and how they came to be in the film. As a bonus, they also share some insights into the making of The Black Spot! See you there!
We are absolutely delighted to announce that The Black Spot has been officially selected for this years London Lift off film festival! A big congrats and thank you to each and every person that helped to make The Black Spot happen. We hope you all enjoy watching it at the festival and look forward to hearing your response!
