The Happy O'Clock News - Victoria

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

The Happy O'Clock News team has wrapped up filming for the pilot episode, and while editing takes place, we are filming outdoor segments for episode 2.

Brief synopsis: Brent lives with his Grandma who recently kicked Grandpa out of home because he's been getting way too drunk and way too often. Grandma thinks her grandson is going craaaaazy, always talking into the windows when in actually fact there is an entire film crew there creating a tv show.

Brent's created a group a group called "The Army of Goodness & Giggles" who take phone calls from the general public to do outrageous things in highly populated places to make people smile. He needs to rush out of the studio (aka a collaboration of his Grandmas house and his house) when these phone calls come in. The Happy O'Clock News Team track and report on all these movements. On this occasion, Bourke St Mall is the location, as so many people have been spotted living in their own little comfort bubble, therefor, this calls for...

..."The Army of Goodness & Giggles" and a "Funny Faces & Funny Body Movements" tennis match.

This is also great opportunity to experiment with some facial expressions and body movements and use it on your show reel.

To apply, you will need to be available between between 11am - 2pm next Tuesday June 15th.
