Female Lead for Sci-fi Short Film Collaboration with Big Built-in Fanbase

Female Lead for Sci-fi Short Film Collaboration with Big Built-in Fanbase

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

We're looking for a diverse (middle eastern/BIPOC) strong female lead for our new SciFi/horror short film.
The short is based on an online universe with a built-in fanbase, and the content set in it on average gets 2 million views, with some of the best getting 7 – 10 million views.

We're tapping into this popular, worldwide fan base to bring to screen a fantastic story with an incredibly talented crew. I’ve shot 7 short films and worked for luxury brands such as Hermes Paris and Aesop as a director. My work has appeared in film festivals worldwide, including the Academy Award-qualifying HollyShorts festival and Toronto Webfest. You can see examples of my short films in my portfolio.

We have an awesome team:
Alastair, an experienced commercial cinematographer who worked with a dozen brands, including Honda, has shot for the Aunty Donna web series.

Jenna is an award-winning producer of several short films, the feature film Nova Star, and the sci-fi web series 2121 starring TV legend Gary Sweet, with over 1 million views online. Jenna has been funded by Screen Australia and Film Victoria and is represented by Circle of Confusion in LA.

Because everyone on the project is helping out and giving away their time, we put tons of effort into what we do, and we do not waste people's trust with mediocre products.

We are looking for our lead lady. A strong, determined rebel who fought for the right cause back home, but now she's faced with a bigger threat in an alien world.

The shoot is currently set for 3 cruisy days, all expenses paid.
NO crazy late hours, NO 14 hours days.

We’ll be looking to gather self-tapes over the next 2-3 weeks, with filming in half October (Covid-permitting) in Melbourne.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Rehearsal via zoom and shooting at some stage in October when covid restrictions ease.
