We are casting a major feature film being made with the support of the NZ Film Commission for release in NZ and internationally.

We are looking for Maori, Pacific Island and Pakeha boys between 10–19 yrs old to play lead character Danny and his friend Mark, at different stages of growing up, as well as other supporting roles in the film.

Shooting in Wellington later in the year.

The film is a complex NZ drama touching on the experiences of the kids who went through the boys’ homes in NZ in the 60’s. The story follows two boys who meet and form a brotherhood bond in a boys’ home and examines their friendship as they grow into teenagers on the street and into adulthood in a gang in the 80’s. This film is being directed by Sam Kelly (director of award-winning short film LAMBS) and produced by award-winning Vicky Pope (TWO LITTLE BOYS).

You don't need any experience at all-just your enthusiasm to give this a go!

To apply please send a head and shoulders photo of yourself.

If you can we’d also love you to send us a video introducing yourself and telling us what makes you feel happy and what makes you feel sad. Filmed on a phone is fine.

Attach the video to your email or send us a Vimeo or Youtube link to it if you prefer.
