Multiple Actors Required for a Coming of Age Short Film

New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

We are a team of recently graduated film students, on the hunt for a cast of enthusiastic, passionate actors to bring our vision to life. Spoiled Milk is a coming of age story in which a young woman learns that despite living in a world that celebrates romance and finding “the One,” being single isn’t a character flaw.


The Spoiled Milk production team are committed to diverse, inclusive casting. For every role, we encourage the application of all performers, without regard to disability, race, colour, national origin, ethnic origin, or any other basis otherwise specifically indicated.

Synopsis:
Never having been in a serious relationship, Sadie feels as though she is behind her peers socially - something that she is continually reminded of most mornings, by spoiled, half-drunk 1L milk bottles. But despite the awkward blind dates, the underwhelming one-night stands, and falling head over heels for handsome yet unavailable strangers, is being single really that bad, or is it just another case of “the grass is always greener?”

Spoiled Milk explores the societal pressure placed on individuals to "partner up," and the notion that you need to be in a relationship to be truly happy – in fact, being single is nothing more than a sad, lonely, transitionary stage in between relationships, on the long (and sometimes never-ending) journey to find “The One.” Spoiled Milk aims to challenge the notion that being single is a character flaw that requires fixing.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Video audition tapes are due on the 15th of July. We will send you audition scripts via email. We may hold in-person callback auditions after reviewing these tapes at a later date.

Shooting dates are TBC, but will take place between mid-late August.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - We will be entering this film into a number of film festivals after production. It is great experience and exposure!

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


Sadie (Female Lead)

Sadie has never been in a serious relationship, leaving her feeling behind her peers and prompting feelings of inadequacy. From dreadful blind dates, to disappointing one-night stands, and lots of hapless daydreaming, the film follows Sadie’s journey of self-discovery, as she comes to accept and even appreciate her singledom. The actress must be comfortable with physical intimacy, such as kissing.

Female, aged 18 to 24

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Poppy

Poppy is one of Sadie’s closest friends. She is very pretty, and gives off a very cool, confident aura – Queen Bee energy. Poppy places a high degree of importance on romantic gestures, and unconsciously places this same pressure on Sadie.

Female, aged 18 to 24

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

India

India is another one of Sadie’s closest friends. She has a sweet, bubbly personality, and genuinely cares for her friends. However, her haphazard intrusions into Sadie’s love life further Sadie’s feelings of inadequacy, as her singleness is portrayed as a “problem,” that India can “fix.”

Female, aged 18 to 24

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Ruby

Ruby is Sadie’s friendly, but sometimes rather noisy, roommate. She is a passionate and outspoken vegan, a quality she shares with her boyfriend, Matt. Ruby is involved in a sex scene with Matt. However, this is not depicted on screen, only heard by other characters. Thus, no nudity is involved, but the actress must be comfortable with recording sounds that are sexually explicit.

Female, aged 20 to 27

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Declan

Declan is a high school friend of Sadie’s. He is the epitome of a lad, with a goofy personality.

Male, aged 18 to 24

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Rory

Rory is a high school friend of Sadie’s, and Poppy’s long-term boyfriend. Like Declan, Rory is your stereotypical, over-confident teenage lad.

Male, aged 18 to 24

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Tom

Tom is the attractive supermarket cashier who serves Sadie when she goes to buy more milk. Unbeknownst to him, this brief interaction triggers an intense daydreaming sequence, in which Sadie imagines and entire life with Tom. The actor must be comfortable with on-screen kissing, as he shares a few with Sadie during her dream sequence.

Male, aged 18 to 27

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Callum

Sadie is set up on a blind date with Callum by India, in an extremely misguided wingman-ing endeavour. Callum is a self-obsessed junior accountant with a weird fascination with taxidermy – so safe to say, not Sadie’s type.

Male, aged 20 to 26

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Charlie

Charlie is a boy on tinder, and he does what boys on tinder do best – send you a booty call at 2am, then proceed to have really disappointing sex with you. The actor must be comfortable with on-screen physical intimacy, including kissing.

Male, aged 20 to 25

Applications closed 25 July 2020.

Matt

Matt is Ruby’s boyfriend. He shares a similar passion for veganism and the fight against animal exploitation (and is also, similarly loud). Matt is involved in a sex scene with Ruby. However, this is not depicted on screen, only heard by other characters. Thus, no nudity is involved, but the actor must be comfortable with recording sounds that are sexually explicit.

Male, aged 20 to 28

Applications closed 25 July 2020.
