Female and Male Actor Needed (age 18-25) for Short Film in Coffs Harbour
This is a small production, not professional, not for profit, just something to add to my portfolio and the actors can add to theirs as well! I have filmed scenes in Norway and Scotland and the rest is to be filmed here in Coffs Harbour. No acting experience required.
It is the year of 1913. Eillis, a naive, young, Scottish-born woman with a childlike spark, longing to escape her provincial life in Australia, anxiously awaits a response letter from her sister, Bridgette, who moved away from the family home after a falling out, as a result of something Eillis did. When Eillis receives an unexpected letter from a young woman in Scandinavia, the two immediately connect and strike up a special friendship to last a lifetime, through love, loss, and an unexpected tragedy.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates(No auditions or rehearsal) the shoot is to be on a weekend, as soon as possible. The date will be set based on when the actors are available.
This job is unpaid
Bridgette (supporting character)
Bridgette is the older sister of Eillis by a few years, and suffers in love by the misguided actions of her younger sister. She has a maternal affection for Eillis, but treats her like a child, which she hates. Eillis looks up to Bridgette.
Females, aged 18 to 25

Clarence works on Eillis and Bridgette’s family estate. He is kind and well regarded by the family, until romantic ties between him and Bridgette cause issues. Eillis’ jealousy and frustration cause her to take control of the situation. There is a clear separation in social status between the two, and this fact allows Eillis to remove Clarence from the picture. But to her surprise, Bridgette chooses to go with him, leaving Eillis in a state of betrayal.
