Three Actors Required for a Short Drama Film - Auckland

Auckland, NZ
Listed by View details

We are looking to fill three roles for a short 2-minute film.

The film will involve an interrogation scene between Robert (early to mid-20s), who claims to be the victim of a crime, and a skeptical Police Officer (30s or older) who is not buying his story and wants to get to the embarrassing truth. It soon becomes apparent that Robert's abusive girlfriend, Dina (20s), has placed him in his current predicament.

The short is being filmed for a postgraduate film class at the University of Auckland. The film will be shot in Auckland over 1 or 2 days between the 28th and 31st of May, depending on scheduling and actor availability.

The roles will be unpaid, but any expenses such as transport, fuel and parking will be covered, and food/drinks will be made available on shoot days.

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

Payment Details: Expenses paid

Robert

Robert is a liar, but not a very good one... or a very smart one. Trusting in his own cunning, he has cooked up an elaborate criminal plot to avoid a difficult confrontation with his girlfriend, but he gets caught out and embarrassed during a police interrogation. He tries to put on a confident front to hide the truth in this scene. Role will involve some physical acting (clumsiness/physical comedy in some flashbacks).

Male, aged 20 to 29

Police Officer

An experienced Police Officer is conducting an interrogation to get a victim's story. The Police Officer is sharp and immediately smells a rat when he finds inconsistencies in the story. The Officer wants to get to the bottom of it so he can help the young man, but he grows frustrated when Robert keeps holding out on him. He soon comes to understand and sympathize with Robert's situation.

Male, aged 30 to 55
