A film student team is casting the lead for their short film, THE LAST SHOT.
[This casting was placed by on behalf of our director/writer Rachel].

The film follows Neil Reiner in a cautionary tale of a washed up, drunk and disorderly movie actor who gets a second shot at fame, in the style of Birdman meets Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

We are casting this week for a rugged middle aged man (40’s-ish) ideally, but we will consider younger talent also. All ethnicities welcome.
The opening shot will require the actor to be in a singlet and boxer shorts. An application to this role will assume that you are comfortable with this.
We will require a self-tape of a script reading, due midnight on the 16th September. Please feel welcome to creatively interpret the dialogue for your performance.

This is an unpaid role, and we will send you a copy of the final cut when available.
Location: Randwick TAFE
Exact Shooting Times: TBC
Link to script and treatment is available to view after you apply through StarNow.

Neil Reiner

Neil, a one-time movie star, wakes up in a drunken stupor from a night on the booze in a run down bedsit to discover he’s going to star in a sequel to his hit film of 20 years ago. His younger self -from his glory days - appears as a voice in his head and convinces the ageing actor that he can fix himself up and take one last shot - just like his iconic movie character.
