Call for participants, deadline: Friday 29th July 2016
We need you: Are you twins with a story to tell? We are looking for twins of all ages, genders, religions, ethnicities, identical, fraternal, conjoined or separated, to make a short film about what it means to be a twin in the 21st century. We know that twin people are now used to a bit of limelight. Whether in movies, magazines, or science projects, or simply being together in public, twins grab the curiosity of others. But what is it like to have this attention? Is it fun or annoying? We’d love to hear from you and your twin and learn more about your experience. It doesn’t matter if you’re an inseparable pair or can’t help but fight like cats and dogs, we want to capture what it means to be the twins you are.
About the project: Talking Twins [working title] is part of a broader project about twins run by William Viney at Durham University. William is also an identical twin. Talking Twins is not a commercial film – it is educational and will be available to watch online for free. In exchange for their time, energy and travel expenses, we offer twins a small amount of money.
If you are available for recording in London on 18th and 19th August 2016, please fill out the participation form by 29th July 2016.
