Jacob Seelochan's - 'A Casting Room'

HDM client, actor and writer Jacob Seelochan has written and stars in his short film ‘A Casting Room.’

Jacob, who graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, plays ‘Harris’ in the film which highlights and questions how the industry sees and casts ethnicity.

“Harris is the last of many actors Vanessa’s seen today, so she’s not afraid to stop him mid-scene and ask him to try something else. But when she tells him to try a character of a different race, a debate about what it means to be mixed race ensues.”
