Two Male Leads Required for Student Short Film!

We are a crew of 7 committed screen students, working in collaboration to create a Macquarie University film production. Students are currently in their final year of study, aiming to complete a successful major project worthy of film festival entry.


‘FRAMES’ is a psychological drama / thriller that explores the consuming nature of regret and the generational consequences of sin.


At the end of a quiet street in a forgotten neighbourhood, lies a single derelict house. Inside the mysterious ruin, a Hermit resides. Obsessed with his indulgent routine and reclusive behaviour, the man clings to isolation. Living in the shadows.

However, the Hermit’s life is suddenly turned upside down when he arrives home one afternoon to find a Stranger in his house, waiting for him. Forced to confront his worst fears, the Hermit has been expecting this moment for years. What follows is a tense conversation, where everything the Hermit has done to protect his past are under threat. We soon discover that neither of these men are what they seem. As a hideous truth lingers beneath the surface, waiting to be avenged.


We are presently in the middle of the pre-production stage. The casting process is now open, seeking two actors to fill each main role:

The Hermit - 40-50 male (acting experience preferred)

The Stranger - 20-25 male (acting experience preferred)

The current version of the script will be sent out to applicants, who will then be requested to submit an audition video.

Due to ongoing COVID 19 issues and lockdown regulations, shooting dates are not yet confirmed. We are expecting to commence principal photography in December or possibly January 2022.

Locations TBA but expected to take place in Sydney. A driver’s licence would be highly advantageous.

This is an independent student film with a limited budget. The acting roles with be unpaid.

The crew will be in contact with successful candidates later in 2021, for zoom rehearsals & production meetings.

We hope to hear from eager applicants and see your audition reels soon!
