Actors Wanted for Lovecraftian Inspired Student Major Project

Actors Wanted for Lovecraftian Inspired Student Major Project

New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

I am looking for two Lead Actors and an extra for my major film project, Incognita.

What is Incognita about?

"Devastated that he never got closure, Edward attempts to uncover the truth about what happened to his wife. What he finds is a potential world ending scenario where an ungodly presence has been roaming the earth for centuries. Can he survive? Or will Edward meet the same fate as his wife?"

I am a student film maker, completing my final year of my Bachelor of Film. This Project will be my most ambitious and unique to date, due to it's setting, atmosphere and overall story. Incognita takes elements of horror from H.P Lovecraft, Robert Eggers' The Witch and combines them to tell a haunting tale of obsession, psychosis and grief.

Note: There will bit practical effects (blood, gore, etc) so we are looking for individuals who are comfortable with that.

We also have a preliminary budget set, that has already been 85% crowdfunded. Most of my crew I have worked with before on the film, "Handshake" which you can see for yourself in my bio.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

As of right now, shooting will be on the 21st of September with subject to change due to COVID-19.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - student

Expenses paid - Travel will be reimbursed and food will be provided on set.

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


Edward - Main Lead

Occupation: Fisherman Trait/Quirk: Whenever Edward tries to focus on something, he adjusts his hat. Ideal: Edward believes that the truth needs to be told about anything that’s covered up. Flaw: His passion and determination has always got the better of him, especially when it comes down to the important aspects of his life. Requires blood & gore practical effects. Would also prefer someone who has/can grow a thick beard.

Male, aged 45 to 65

Applications closed 9 August 2021.

Eliza - Secondary Lead

Without giving much away, Eliza serves as the thread of the story with Edward being the needle that goes through it. It's genuinely difficult to explain what I need for this performance without giving anything away, but I will say that the character of Eliza requires someone who can play a strong, motivated individual that has lost her innocence due to her murder. The role also requires the use blood and gore practical effects.

Female, aged 45 to 65

  • Hair color: Auburn , Brown

Applications closed 9 August 2021.

Mortem - Minor Role/Extra

Mortem has a smaller role in the film, however it is vital. He serves as the main source of the inciting incident of the film, and plays a crucial part to Edwards story. He is the lead detective that worked on Eliza's case, and at the beginning of the story he asks Edward to come meet him to talk about Eliza. There are only a few scenes with Mortem, but as stated they are crucial. This role will also require the use of blood and gore practical effects makeup.

Male, aged 40 to 55
