Strings Attached is an anthology online series that tells the stories of people trying to connect during these disconnected times.

The show endeavours to go against expectations and challenge preconceptions of age, race, gender and culture.

Each episode features new characters and a story with an unexpected flip or revelation. Things are not always what they seem in the world of online dating.

Every story plays within different genres, with some leaning more heavily into drama and others being more comedic in style.

--- This episode ---
June (50) and Michael (55) are newly single. They are meeting each other for the first time on their first online date. Things escalate quickly when questions about their significant others cause the date to spiral out of control, revealing the true intention of their meeting.

--- The roles ---
We are seeking TWO actors with an age range of 50-60yrs of any ethnicity or background.

We strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and under-represented communities to apply for these roles, including people of colour, Indigenous and LGBTQIA+ performers.

June is a woman with repressed anger and resentment towards her ex-husband. After being under-appreciated by him throughout their marriage (he always chose his job above family), June is searching for a new partner that values her. She isn't afraid of confrontations, and is confident in her own skin.

Michael is a bumbling, kind soul. He's also a bit of push-over and people-pleaser. When it comes to his relationships he doesn't always get it right - but when it comes to his real job, a completely different side of him comes out. Prefers his martinis shaken, not stirred.

---The Team ---
Strings Attached is an international production from emerging filmmakers based in the UK, Germany and Australia. The series is driven by artists who seek to tell stories in fresh ways, despite the world facing lockdowns and restrictions to traditional ways of filming.


--- IMPORTANT AUDITION INFORMATION---

You must speak English fluently, as this particular episode will be in English. If you do not speak English fluently your application will not be considered.

You will need a reel or a self-tape that showcases your ability as a performer. If you do not have a reel or tape on your profile, your application will not proceed to the next stage.

Strings Attached is a series filmed by the performers in their own home/space. As such, there are minimum technical requirements needed for you to be considered (think of it like a series of self-tape auditions when it comes to filming!)

Our minimum camera specifications for the shoot is iPhone X or upwards, recorded at 4k setting, 30fps. If using a standard film camera, the settings must match or be better than iPhone resolution. An external USB microphone or lavelle would be great, but not a deal breaker. If you are unable to film at the above settings for the shoot, your application will not be considered.

This is a passion project from emerging filmmakers. Performers will be updated on festival submissions/laurels and given footage for their reel.

Michael

Michael is a bumbling, kind soul. On the outside, he's a bit of push-over and people-pleaser. He’s not a fan of confrontation and always tries to make things right, even when something isn’t his fault. Michael is a romantic at heart and still cares deeply for his ex-wife. When it comes to his relationships he doesn't always get it right - but when it comes to his real job, a completely different side of him comes out. Prefers his martinis shaken, not stirred.
