"ARDENT". A trans-media experience that combines comic-book structure with live-action film. The narrative is a dramatic take on the reality of heroism, and the affects that life and expectations have on us, those that look up to us, and those we leave behind.

A low-budget dramatic short for a university graduate exhibition. Looking for actors with interest in working for set experience, exposure, love for creative film-making and the willingness to help a burgeoning director. Please note, we do have previous experience working with minors.

SYNOPSIS:
Toby dreams of a world of heroes, with his dad being the closest resemblance to such a fantasy. But when the dark forces of reality and expectations loom over him and his family, he must learn that villains aren’t always cloaked figures in some dark castle, and doing the right thing can come at great cost.

StarNow note for talent: Please note the Advertiser has indicated this production contains strong themes including abuse and minors are not involved in shooting these scenes. Applicants may wish to clarify further details with the advertiser before attending an audition.


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
