Lead Cast Needed for VCA Masters Film - Melbourne

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

Seeking submissions for Lead cast for VCA Masters Graduation film “All We Have Is Time” shooting 16th– 22nd February 2021.

The writer/director Fraser Pemberton recently won the Stephen Ho Bursary (filmmaking) award for this script.

Fraser’s work addresses the themes of time, memory, and loss. His recent film ‘Hourglass’ has been the recipient of over 10 festival selections and won Best International Student Short at the Glendale International Film Festival in 2018.

Synopsis:
After their ship malfunctions in the depths of space, Williams and his crew of astronauts begin to experience memories that aren’t their own. Haunted by the inaction of his past, Williams attempts to hold onto his disappearing memories while coming to terms with a temporal anomaly that will force them to question mankind’s very understanding of time. With the past, present and future no longer separate, Williams will risk everything in order to rewrite what was written in the past.

The project has attracted a fabulous, experienced crew after it's industry pitch. At this stage it is unfunded so we are unable to pay cast & crew. However; the film has strong festival potential and will be a powerful proof of concept for a feature version of the story.

We will pay all cast expenses, provide hi-res showreel versions and plan a Covid safe, professional and fun, on-set collaboration.

Screentests will be scheduled shortly and will be held either via zoom or face to face (restrictions allowing) so please apply ASAP to be considered.

The owner of this listing has agreed to abide by local 'working with children' regulations. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
