We are in pre-production for a Crime / Drama short film, and aiming for the shoot to be in Autumn 2022, in Melbourne.

The story revolves around three characters - a crime journalist, an ex-Mafia hitman, and a young lawyer - and chronicles the convergence of multiple warring parties in a desperate attempt to uncover the journalist's secret source.

Payment will be negotiated, and if you are shortlisted, we would love to see a video audition from you based on two scenes from the screenplay.

The final product will either become a short film or TV pilot, and will be sent to international film festivals.
