I am seeking expressions of interest for three acting roles in a seven minute (max.) short film. This will be the final end-of-year project as part of the VCA Film & Television Foundations course.

The film will be a loose adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 1905 short story 'Alyosha the Pot'. Set in the recent past, it centres around Daniel, a 19 year-old apprentice maintenance electrician working under the supervision of his 42 year-old father, Jerome.

Daniel is simple, dutiful, uncomplaining and inarticulate, and his father is coldly critical of him.

Daniel meets and falls in love with Ustinia, a 22 year-old canteen worker, who is the first person he has met in his adult life not to exploit his good nature. He wants to marry her, but his father takes a cynical view of the match, so Daniel drops the idea. Distracted in his work, Daniel injures himself fatally.

I am looking to cast the roles of Daniel, Ustinia, and Jerome.

The course requirements are that the film be shot over two consecutive 10-hour days (not including a 45-minute break on each shooting day). Shooting is scheduled to take place on Saturday 26 October and Sunday 27 October, during the day, at locations yet to be determined.

These are unpaid opportunities, however, the successful applicants will receive a screen credit, and catering will be provided.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Production dates will be Saturday 26 October and Sunday 27 October. Audition and rehearsal dates are yet to be determined.

Job payment

This job is unpaid

Expenses paid - Happy to reimburse travel costs (within the Melbourne metro area), and catering will be provided.


Daniel

Daniel is 19 years old, simple, dutiful, uncomplaining, inarticulate, and of awkward appearance. The first and final parts of the film will show him at work (as an electrical apprentice), so you may be required to perform some simple physical tasks.

Males, aged 18 to 26

Ustinia

Ustinia is 22 years old, warm-natured, talkative, confident, responsible. She lost her parents at an early age and was raised by her aunt, a devout Catholic.

Females, aged 18 to 28

Jerome

Jerome is 42 years old, cruel, sarcastic, cynical, and highly critical of his son, whom he humiliates in front of his co-workers.

Males, aged 36 to 48
