DJW at Pinewood Studios at London Lift-Off
Updated: Jun 12, 2019
BEST ACTOR NOMINATIONS do not come easily.
Daniel-John Williams (Company Director at DJW Talent) was the casting Director for the award winning A Six & Two Threes, a BFI.Network funded short film based in Teesside. Written and Directed by the incredibly talented Andy Berriman.
Produced by Candle & Bell.
The lead actor was sourced through multiple casting sessions held in Teesside and ran by DJW along side the director. Shane Teasdale was eventually offered the part and his talent was raw and unfiltered.
His work was recognised by everyone who watched the film and it was shown at numerous film festivals around the world with standing ovations in packed out cinemas and Shane ended up being nominated for BEST Actor at the London-Lift Off Film Festival which was a red carper event held at Pinewood Studios.

Shane had never performed before and we received lots of film offers for Shane after this. Daniel and DJW Talent worked closely with Shane for a while after this film and Shane was unsure which project to accept next and so decided to take a break.
We hope to get more actors to this position and we wish Shane the very best of luck for his future career choices.
