Last of Us "Down Deep", Short Fan Film, Two Males, Two Females Required

ACT, Australia
Listed by View details

We are currently casting for a short fan film based on the game "The Last of Us", called Last of Us - "Down Deep". We are looking for strong character actors with experience in action work to take on very physical roles. For those who don't know the series; the world is devastated when an infection turns most of the population into ravenous, screaming zombies. The survivors must be willing to do whatever it takes to survive gangs of starving thieves, the infected, the militia, the hostile environments, and sometimes even the smallest of inhaled breaths.

We will be shooting in a couple of months with more precise dates to follow. Shooting will take place in Forbes in one block, just outside of Canberra in another. Sadly since this is a fan film, crewed by die hard fans and based on a series we adore, it is not a paid position, nor is it likely to make any money in the future. It is destined for youtube and our own showreels, and we're aiming high to make something we're immensely proud of.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.


Katelyn - Tomboy, Hardened Survivalist, Fighter

Katelyn is a pure product of a dangerous and violent world. A survivor out on her own for years, she has seen pretty much every horror imaginable. Before all of this she was a regular mother of two, then the world changed and she had only one choice - change with it or die with morality intact. While this role requires no nudity, there is a scene where she is putting on a shirt and side and back scarring can be seen. Tastefully done and no actual nudity required at all.

Female, aged 18 to 50

Applications closed 20 August 2014.

Rosalie - Scrounger, Artist, Collector, Sweet

Rosalie is one of the few young people to have survived the original outbreak. She remembers vaguely how things used to be, and spends most of her time trying to recreate the beautiful things of the past. She is an artistic soul, and a collector of keepsakes. She'll often risk her life for the chance to see or touch something that would be impossible to make in the new world. She keeps a journal she carries everywhere, filled with recorded moments with "ghosts" - the past beauty she looks for.

Female, aged 18 to 35

Applications closed 20 August 2014.

Liam - Idealist, Hidden Romantic, Sentimentalist

Liam is our hero, and a product of the modern world, but has a deep veined of idealism running through him. He spends half his time working alongside hardened survivors, but always has an eye on the proverbial "rose growing from concrete". He finds beauty in the decay while also feeling a horrid empathy for the infected. While this doesn't stop him from doing what he must, it does make him hesitate when he shouldn't. He meets Rosalie and sees in her all the beauty of the world, past and present.

Male, aged 18 to 40

Applications closed 20 August 2014.

Victor - Vicious, Angry, Resentful, Sadistic

Victor has seen almost every horror possible in the wasteland of a modern apocalyptic city. He has emerged from it with nothing, barely the clothes on his back, and he is intensely angry. He hates the infected and most humans with a raging intensity, and will strike down any and all who come near places he considers sacred. He is a highly unstable man, but wasn't always that way. He was once the luckiest man in the world, or at least he felt that way. The next day was the first day of the end.

Male, aged 18 to 60
