Parents of the children selected will be contacted by email to attend a casting in Santa Cruz on 22 and 23 January.

Updated 11 December 2018: Casting director Camilla Isola (IMDb HERE) is seeking a 17-19-year-old boy to play a part on an international film. Filming will take around 3-5 days in Tenerife, with dates to be confirmed, but the successful applicant must be able to speak English. Anyone who would like to apply (the part is a paid acting role) should send a photograph to isolacamilla@gmx.com: they will then be sent instructions on how to record a self-tape for consideration.
