Two Male Actors for a Fast Paced Cinematic Drama/Thriller (shot on Red)

Two Male Actors for a Fast Paced Cinematic Drama/Thriller (shot on Red)

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

Sal's partner is pressuring her to do things sexually that she's not comfortable with. Instead of addressing this - she pressures her housemate to do something dangerous.

This is a thriller that takes place in one night. We'll be shooting over about a week - shooting on anamorphic +red.
We're an experienced team. I've written/directed a feature film before, our DOP is a lecturer on the subject, and our production designer has assisted on Netflix shows and cinema releases. Our actresses are already cast, and extremely talented (1 of which I've worked with before to great success).
That being said, this is a no-budgeter/unpaid for all - and we'll be doing the best we can with very, very little. You know how this film game is - hard work, no pay, but a whole lot of fun.

We want to make something special, something that pushes cinema, pushes ourselves. We don't intend to make something 'good', we want to make something that challenges us and challenges the artform we love.

We'll be shooting over a week (mostly evenings) once lockdowns ease and it's safe to film. Please note I've produced filming already for govt departments whilst in lockdown, so I know how to run a covid-safe set, which our short's set very much will be.

Also please not there's heavy sexual themes, and themes of gaslighting - which will be taken very seriously for those scenes, during filming and during the edit. While sex scenes with implied nudity will be depicted, no nudity will be required.

But despite the heavy themes, ultimately for the audience this film will be a fun, exhilarating ride with a pretty out there ending. We're aiming big on this one, and we'd love you to be a part of it.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Auditions will be via zoom, along with some rehearsals for the chosen actor. Shooting will be once it's safe to do so after lockdown eases.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - $80AUD will be paid to both cast actors as per Starnow guidelines of implied nudity. + food/snacks provided

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


Ryan

Ryan is Sal's boyfriend. There's been rumours that he's influenced some other girls to do some pretty out there things sexually in the past. He's a manipulator for sure, but there's still enough in him for Sal to see him as her soul mate. We'd love someone from a diverse background for this role - but ultimately it depends on the natural performance the actor brings and how we think he'll work with the story.

Male, aged 22 to 29

Applications closed 19 October 2020.

Kevin

Kevin is really nice, he's a bit awkward in that funny type of way, the type of person you'd trust immediately like some sort of puppy. This is a very difficult/nuanced role as he has to make a girl, Fria, feel safe within a minute of meeting him - whilst in a place where she wouldn't usually feel safe. Difficult but doable for the right person and the natural vibe they bring. We'd love someone from a diverse background for this role if possible but we'd like to hear from anyone interested.
