Queensland, Australia
Listed by View details

"A fanatic fanboy travels back in time and recruits his younger self to fix his favourite sci-fi franchise… but only makes it worse."

Brisbane-based media company THE SLOP SHACK is creating a low-budget comedy short film - THE BOX SET - and are looking for three actors to take part in a rare opportunity: Playing multiple versions of a single character!

As 15 year old Jet McGrory interacts with a 40 year old Jet, and then a 70 year old Jet... timey-wimey comedic banter ensues.

The casting process and production are being documented as a part of a new video series SLEUTH, which also explores how Time-Shifted Characters have been brought to the screen in films like "Back to the Future", "This Is Us", and "Looper".

So we're looking for male actors with improvisational and comedic abilities who can bring this unique story to life!

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Auditions for MIDDLE-AGED JET will take place on Tuesday 29th Jan.
Auditions for YOUNG JET and SENIOR JET will take place on Friday 1st Jan.

Shooting will take place between Feb 5 and Feb 16, depending on actor's availability.

Dates are subject to change. We will try to accommodate all interested parties. Video auditions are accepted.

MIDDLE-AGED JET

A man who once dreamed of being a filmmaker, this miserable fanboy has found a way to start over... using his knowledge from the 2040s to become a successful film producer in the 2010s! With a large gut squeezed under a graphic T-Shirt, this neck-bearded slob will engage in comedic dialogue with his younger self... revealing an eerily violent side to his sarcastic disposition. This actor will also portray an alternate version of this character, with slicked back hair and business suit.

YOUNG JET

A 15-year fanboy obsessed with a particular blockbuster sci-fi series, Jet McGrory spends his days watching movie podcasts, making short films, and dreaming about time travel. Armed with his trusty graphic T-Shirt and cargo pants, his hair a mess, and his voice still breaking... Jet is about to change the world. We will be casting Young Jet to match Middle-Aged Jet's features. Auditions will include a chemistry test with Middle-Aged Jet.

SENIOR JET

The aged-up version of Middle-Aged-Jet, this man has risen from a failed fanboy to a successful Hollywood producer. But with his age comes wisdom, and it's time for Jet to learn a lesson. This actor will be cast based on physical / mannerism similarities to MIDDLE-AGED JET, and will perform a chemistry test with his younger counterpart.
