Actors of Indian Descent Needed for Student Short Film

Actors of Indian Descent Needed for Student Short Film

Auckland, NZ
Listed by View details

The Short Film is called "Wings to Fly" and follows Maya, Henna, and Raghav having Dinner together as emotional tensions arise between them.
The Story aims to be a Family Drama that is being created for a School Assignment. I am a Student Filmmaker and am still learning and growing into the wonderful world of Film Making!
Actors will be required to source a majority of their own Costumes and organize their own Makeup as the time limit for this assignment will be strict and quick. Be prepared for any possible changes or potential reorganizing of things! Overall, many things are confirmed and underway. I look forward to getting the chance to meet and work with you all.
Thank you for reading my first ever brief :)
