Low budget amatuer film in Melbourne - Afghan / English

Female Actresses Required for Low Budget Amatuer Indie Film - VIC

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

We are currently filming a ultra low budget independent film, shooting over the next few months in Melbourne. We are Melbourne based amatuer filmmakers (but then again what is amatuer these days? when everyone with a DSLR is making a film), who have done several short films in the past, but are currently filming our first feature length film. Ideally looking for fellow creatives who will enable both yourselves and us to learn more and add to our collective experience.

It is our pet project, which hopefully we will be submitting to a number of film festivals. The film is made up of a number of short stories that interconnect. The film will predominantly be spoken in an Afghan (Afghanistan) dialect, with English. Why? because it hasn't been done before.

At the moment we have a number of roles to fill (2 of which are needed in the immediate future). The roles are unpaid, but would be a great addition to your resume. We are willing to pay for travel expenses. Being a low/no budget film, there will be no 50-men film crews or enormous food trucks..... instead there will be a tight knit run-and-gun type of skeleton crew (eg. just camera, and sound) where you will be forced to use your talents to make the film shine.

Wishing to shoot scenes involving these characters over the next month (South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne). If interested, please email a recent photo and tell us a little about yourself. Suitable candidates will be given details about the script, and hopefully a non-formal meeting can be arranged.

Please email and tell us a little about yourself, and which role/s you would be interested in.
Looking forward to working with you!

Payment details: no pay
