Looking for Presenter and Actor
- The Magic Lantern* is a film club for children aged 6 to 11. It aims to inform about the wonder and beauty of cinema by showing some great films several times a year in a real cinema. Each session begins with a small stage show (scholar and innocent). The film club is under the patronage of UNESCO.
In short, the presenters need to be actors capable of performing on stage to an audience of children. But they must also be able to improvise to some extent in the light of the response from the audience, limitations of the place and other considerations that impinge on the proposed scenario. While the presenter playing the role of the Innocent may simply play a role, the Scholar must in addition have the ability to conduct a dialogue and create audience participation and have a good grasp of cinema attributes exhibited by a good radio or TV presenter.
