The film is a surreal period short, which will stand on its own as a unique horror piece, but also be used as a conceptual shoot for a longer form feature film project. Thus, successful work on the short could well lead to the chosen actor being selected to play the main character in the feature also.
The role requires a physically emotive actor, as there is little on screen dialogue. So someone with a strong presence, but who is also able to convey curiosity and vulnerability will be a must.
The film will be directed by Shaun Hume, a tassie born writer and director who has experience in independent and big budget films, both in the UK as well as Australia.
The short will be shooting 20 and 21 February, on location in Hobart.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesShooting will take place on 20 and 21 February 2021.
