Male & Female Leads Required for VCA Masters Short Film

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

"Modernity" is a 10 minute relationship drama presented entirely in split screen.

After dating for three years, Sabine and Adam recently entered into a long distance relationship when Sabine relocated to Paris to study fashion. After three months in Paris, Sabine decides to write a letter to Adam ending things, but before she can press send the phone rings.

We view their relationship entirely through their respective lounge rooms (in Melbourne and Paris) and via phone conversations and text messages. The film is about love and deceit in the modern world.

Directed by 2nd Year VCA Masters Student and Tropfest 2019 Winner.

The film will screen at the VCA showcase in mid 2021 at the Capitol Theatre and be submitted to film festivals.

Please note: despite the format, this is not a zoom project. The film will be shot cinematically.

Both actors are required for three days in the first week of December (final dates TBA). Plus rehearsals.

Selected applicants will be sent the script and asked to submit a self tape of a selected scene.

Each cast actor will receive $200 (paid by VCA) for participating in a half day actor/director workshop in early November, where a scene from the film will be workshopped with the director. It's hoped that this will take place on campus at VCA, otherwise it will be conducted over zoom.
An additional $100 will be paid to each actor to cover expenses during production, plus full catering provided.

The set will be run in accordance with VCA's Covid-Safe guidelines, which includes a full-time on-set Covid Supervisor.
