Four actors required for lead roles in short student film - Australia

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

Applicants need to be available to film from 9am - 5pm on Saturday, June 30th.

Synopsis

The protagonists are named Ear Vault, Eye Master and Speedhawk. They are a trio of self-styled superheroes residing in a small town called Catstone. They are the town's treasure, and are adored by many of the local citizens. However, the skills and power they supposedly hold only exist in the minds of the heroes themselves. The opening begins with a robbery in which the trio aims to return a woman's handbag. They are successful in their mission, however only by pure accident when the robber hits a pole. The heroes' arch nemesis is a character called Gamer Villain from a town called Hillsbury. His evil ways are a threat to all mankind...well, at least Catstone.

Character information

Earvault, Eye Master, Speedhawk and Gamer Villain are all immature, nerdy gamer types with delusions of grandeur. They could be played by actors in their late-teens/youngish looking early to mid-20s, as they are meant to be studying their final year of school. They are all also egotistical characters, full of unwarranted pride.

Payment details: no pay


Film will be shot in Caroline Springs, a western suburb of Melbourne.
