Get Carter: Redux

Get Carter: Redux banner image

Artist Richard DeDomenici is remaking pivotal scenes from the 1971 NewcastleGateshead classic movie Get Carter – and needs your help!

Get involved with an unpredictable, mischievous and risky new take on the Tyneside classic crime movie Get Carter.

Join artist Richard DeDomenici as he remakes major scenes as part of The Redux Project, an ongoing series of low-budget recreations of famous movies.

Filmed in original locations, and starring local participants, Richard shoots on a furious schedule, with little more than a cheap camera and his wits. Ultimately Richard hopes that by making fake versions of things that are themselves inherently fake, we’ll somehow arrive at a greater truth.

Find out more about The Redux Project here, and watch some of Richard’s previous recreations from all over the world.

You don’t need to have any acting experience, just the will to be part of our guerrilla recreation of Get Carter! Please email with:

  • A headshot/passport photo
  • Your height (so Richard can match you up with shots and Get Carter characters)
  • Your availability to be in Newcastle-Gateshead over the first week of September 2018.
  • Contact phone number
  • Deadline to apply: Tuesday 31 July

To say thank you, participants will be offered a free ticket to the Premiere of the Redux, featuring behind-the-scenes footage, the Redux screening itself, and all the unique absurdity that comes with DeDomenici’s live shows. Plus, a few drinks to celebrate… Details to follow.
