Hi there! We are putting out a casting call to complete the cast for an upcoming VCA Honours film. Hard Front is a horror-comedy short film written and directed by Jack Bell, in the spirit of schlock-horror classics like the Evil Dead films and Brain Dead. We are looking for versatile actors who are able to perform authentically and honestly, as well as having strong physical comedy skills for the more extreme horror elements of the piece.

Production is currently slated to take place in Melbourne from the 6th to 12th of July with a day break in between, and as the film is self-funded, roles are unpaid.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

The 6th - 12th of July with a one day break in between.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - Student Honours Film

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.


Faulky (50s) is the boss of the Hard Front, and a bit of a knob honestly. A big man with small man syndrome, he’s gotta shout louder, punch harder, and piss further than anyone else in the room. There isn’t much going on upstairs, but who needs brains? Faulky’s a small-town small-time dealer who’s managed to make big bucks off of Polly’s secret meth recipe, but doesn’t know a thing about running a ‘business’. He has a romantic soft spot for Clip that he’ll never reveal.

Male, aged 40 to 70

Applications closed 3 July 2021.


Josh (22) is our protagonist, and the new guy in the Hard Front. He’s a gifted burnout, the Dux of his country town who had every opportunity given to him and smoked them all away in a haze of weed, imposter syndrome and cowardice. Now he’s at a crossroads; settle in Goulburn and accept this life, or take a leap of faith and get out. Unhappy with a regular job, Josh has scored the only cool gig in this one horse-town: facilitating rampant meth abuse in his friend’s Hard Front.

Male, aged 18 to 28

Applications closed 3 July 2021.


Clip (40s) is the brains of the Hard Front, and he’s getting too old for the shenanigans. Officially he’s second in command, but without Clip the operation would go from a shambles to a bombshell. He’s the only one who can calm Faulky down- try as he might, Clip just can’t figure out how to quit him. Clip’s well and truly trapped in this life, and while he’d never touch the crystal, he’s made peace with his dingy corner of the world.

Male, aged 30 to 60

Applications closed 3 July 2021.


Kitt (23) is the runner in the Hard Front, and Josh’s link inside. Equal parts charming and sleazy, he’s a rat who knows he can flash his smile and get away with anything- at least until the shard rots his teeth. He was bottom of the ladder in the Hard Front until Josh came in, and he’s gonna make sure that Josh takes over his role as the resident punching bag. Kitt thrives on Josh’s adoration to validate his ego, and strings Josh along so he can use him when he needs it. Thinks he's invincible

Male, aged 18 to 30
