Music video set mostly in the baroque- period, very Labyrinth-like in feel. Looking for actors and extras for a masked-ball. Costumes will be provided.

Featured extras include:
- A musician on the stairs playing an instrument (accordion/ violin)
- A mime - miming in makeup on the stairs
- A priest (preferably over 50 years) performing a cleansing/ exorcism
- A couple - sitting with priest
- A a young girl in makeup drawing/ sketching
- A male romantic lead - mostly in images, not in video for film

Then we will need a whole lot of extras (30) in the background for the ball, in masks and gowns (if you have anything that would suit wardrobe-wise it would be a plus)

WARDROBE REQUIREMENT:
for men - a black suit (pants, shirt, and blazer) + black dress shoes
for Women - a black knee-length dress, and black heels - closed
Make up - for main extras will be done on the day, for other extras, please come in full makeup and hair - I will send photos of the type of style once you're approved for the shoot. Think Labyrinth ball scene.

This is a period music video, so having the basic blacks is a good base incase other costumes do not fit etc.

Dates and locations are TBC, but we are aiming for late Feb to mid March for shooting dates.

We will be shooting in NSW, and you will get all the info as we progress. This listing will be updated accordingly. Will be holding auditions asap.
