Lead And Supporting Roles Needed for Short Film

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

We're a friendly and passionate student crew shooting a 7 minute short film from September 23-26, over a mix of days and evenings, both on location and in a studio. The final project will be submitted to festivals, posted on YouTube and used for showreels.

This is a drama film with some comedic and mystery elements, in which an ambitious but struggling TV producer discovers a public-interest story that could change her fortunes. As she explores deeper, she realizes the story might not be what it seems and could have profound consequences for many.

You will be paid in caramel slice (I cook a mean batch) and a copy of the film for your showreel. Food (in addition to the caramel variety) will be provided, along with the finest bottled water your heart could desire.

So if you're looking for a laid back, open and collaborative project to lend your talents to, I'd love to receive your application, with your preference(s) for roles, and your upcoming availability for an audition, rehearsal and the 23-26 September shoot itself.

Cheers, and I look forward to working with you!
Michael

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity

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


Astrid (Lead Role)

Astrid is a minor TV producer, who is starting to feel frustrated and desperate with where her career is going (or not going, more to the point), when she lands a major opportunity. She's stubborn and easily gets tunnel vision for a pursuit, but is highly motivated and a good person. Her bosses and the Talent at the studio don't treat her with much respect, and her boyfriend has a very different outlook on life. In the end she learns some tough lessons about compromise, humility and ambition.

Female, aged 25 to 40

Niccola (Supporting But Pivotal Role)

Niccola is a charismatic, intelligent and idealistic young woman with big dreams and a dark secret. Her surface-level charm disguises an arrogance and opportunistic nature beneath. Some makeup effects may be required, such as coloured eye-lenses.

Female, aged 18 to 25

Dan (Supporting Role)

Dan is Astrid's boyfriend dragged along for the ride on her search for the truth. He works as the floor manager of the TV program. Unlike his girlfriend, he is relatively unambitious and comfortable in his life. He looks out for Astrid, concerned she is becoming too wrapped up in her work, but their differences in life goals lead to tensions between them.

Male, aged 25 to 40
