I am a student of Production Management at Yoobee Colleges: South Seas Film School.
We are currently leading into our most demanding project of the year where students are required to create 10-15 minute short films. As part of this project, I am producing a film that provides the opportunity for fresh talents to be cast as leading roles.

What we are looking for:

CHARACTER 1.
Male AGE: 25 (Main role)
CHARACTER PROFILE:
An educated Samoan man, who is strong, brave, and hard working- A son you would be immensely proud of. Ron is a qualified Quantity Surveyor and Project Manager and at 19 got a scholarship to come to NZ from Samoa to study. He is a natural leader, and is confident and focused. He loves his beautiful wife Mary, and they have been married for 2 years. Ron can also speak Samoan fluently


South Seas boasts an incredibly high standard in our Final Projects, with many students utilising their work as references when entering the industry. At this year's NZIFF, two of our 2018 short films were hand-picked out of 91 entries by Jane Campion as finalists in the New Zealand's Best Shorts competition. One of these shorts even won the Creative New Zealand Emerging Talent Award.

Audition will be held on Monday the 30th of September at South Seas Film School ground.
