What we are looking for:
Come and join a growing art department team on a complex and dynamic short film, and work underneath a professional Production Designer, Valentina Serebrennikova. You can find out more about her on her official StarNow Page, website or IMDB. Just type in her name.

We are seeking passionate and dedicated art department team members who have experience with any or all of the following: set dressing, sourcing and/or creating props and items, running, wardrobe and any other roles in film or stage art department.

All of the roles listed above will be working directly underneath the Production Designer to ensure the smooth operation of dressing and packing down locations, assisting with coordinating and sourcing props and items, shuttling props and dressing from location to location for a fast paced and dynamic shoot.

Please note:
-You must have a valid drivers licence as some roles require the use of driving the art department van.

-We are seeking team members who are also available to give us some time during the later stages of our post-production in September, October and November as well as the actual shoot in November.

-Please let us know if you have any experience with making items as well.

Shoot dates:
We are still working out the exact dates. We are aiming to shoot over 12 days, broken up into 2 to 3 sections in the second half of November this year.

'The Little Pin UP' story Pitch:
Max’s perfect, nine-year-old reality comes crashing down when he gets the wrong Pin Up Toy for Christmas – The Little Pin Up. The only way she can win Max’s affection is to go to war against the evil Snow Bunny, a Pin Up toy that threatens to enslave Max’s entire neighbourhood.

The Little Pin Up is an action fairy tale for grown ups - set in an alternative version of the 1950’s - about female empowerment, good versus evil, childhood nostalgia and both the power and corruption that comes from needing to be loved.

Project development so far:
We have been in heavy pre-production since August 19' and have locked in most of our speaking roles and heads or department. Our teaser poster, featuring all original art, is on this add - note that this is a live action film, not animation.

The production
This is an unusually complex 30 min short film. Most days on set will require extra care due to our extensive child cast, stunts and blank gun fire. The script has 31 locations and 53 scenes and the shoot will be fast and dynamic and will requires sharp, focused minds and constant communication between you and the production designer.

Project mission/Film Festivals:
We are currently aiming to raise the films budget on kick-starter. Being a fantasy action film, this short is aimed squarely at international genre film festivals, the primary one being ‘Sitges’ – the world’s biggest genre film festival in Catalonia.

The tone of the film:
This film is a live-action kids film for grown ups. The tone of the film is a blend up of 'Some like it Hot' 'Moonrise' Kingdom' 'Toy Story' and 'Kill Bill 2' all blended into one - with it's own unique thing as well.

About the director
My name is Kurt, I am a Melbournian who has studied film and media. I have worked on projects small and large in the past and am looking to get back into entering the industry with this short film.

About the producer
Producer Leanne Campbell has extensive industry experience in paid and non-paid acting, producing and production roles.

Our interviews:
We will be doing interviews for this role either on Zoom or face to face on the weekend of July 25 (Sat) and 26 (Sun).
