Synopsis as follows: In terms of genre, this story is more of a crime thriller satire set present-day in Sydney's northwest suburbia. It follows two protagonists in a modern SUV, an old white Australian man and a young third-generation Asian teen. As the film begins, we learn both must deliver a kidnapped man in their trunk; however, the generational gap between the two facilitates conflict, which prevents them from successfully delivering the body. Eventually, the tension will escalate to a twist that the kidnapped person lifts down the backseat and implicitly kills both. The hubris surrounding their vast difference in age entails their downfall.
About me: I'm a student at UNSW studying film as apart of my double degree.
The university will view the project, and the finished product will be given to you to add to your portfolios.
If you can play a stereotyped stubborn upper-middle-class Aussie oldie, then that's perfect. Plus, you also need to memorise a script, but I'm willing to provide legroom for some improv. Need to discuss costuming as well.
You will be working with another actor.
If you have any questions or are interested, please apply.
This job is unpaid - A student film. I will shout you a kebab though.
Don’t want to characterise him to be like a generic gangster. He’s a caricature of a Boomer; he's the type to lecture you on the importance of Anzac Biscuits and is horrible with technology. The change in cultural values over time has formed an uncompromising, judgemental, and outright stubborn personality. By completing this job, he believes that he can prove himself still worthy of such tasks despite his age.
