Meic, the national advocacy, information and advice helpline for children and young people in Wales, is looking for young people to be a part of its latest video campaign.

Meic needs one young woman and one young man, roughly at the age 11-12, with some acting experience, to act in a video to advertise the services that Meic provides, along with several young men and women in secondary roles.

The story follows a boy and a girl and the troubles they face as they move to secondary school with help from Meic at this difficult time. As the video is silent, no script learning will be required, however there will be a voiceover which young people can read for us if they choose. As the video will be bilingual, Welsh speakers are more than welcome.


Filming in Cardiff over two/three days (several hours each day) during the week of 25th July 2016 (we’ll try to accommodate your availability).

Open casting on 21st of July, 4:30pm-5:30pm at Cardiff Central Library, 4th floor meeting room. If you cannot make this date but you are still interested, you can contact us at and we can try to arrange something.

We will be giving £25 vouchers to everybody involved in the film, and you will have your name on a video that will be shared across Wales, including across Welsh Government.
