“Budgerigar” is a fun short film about Michael who attends a dinner with Amy (his girlfriend) and her family. Wendy and Paul seem like normal parents until Michael meets Amy’s brother “Michael.” He resembles Michael and is almost a carbon copy, mirroring everything Michael does.

We're looking for people who are punctual and can deliver an upbeat and unique spin on our characters. The role is unpaid but catering will be provided. The shoot itself will only be a one day shoot and a rehearsal/table read is required before the day of shooting for the actors to familiarize the script and meet each other. Footage will be avaliable for the actor to use in their showreels.

NOTE: Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted for an audition.

Audition date - 27th April (Sunday) 10am-5pm

Shooting date - 11th May (Sunday) 11th

This is an official RMIT BComm Media student production – all actors and crew are covered by public liability insurance.

If any problems arise with this production and the students involved please contact Paul Ritchard, Lecturer in Film and Video Production, Media, Media & Communication, RMIT.: email address given upon request

Michael 1

Michael 1 is the protagonist of this short film. Lovably self-absorbed. He is insecure but finds protection in self-adoration. But this self-adoration is somewhat unjustified; Michael is just mediocre, even a little bit dorky. In this way, he is kind of endearing (rather than hateful) as a narcissist.

Males, aged 18 and over from Victoria, Australia
