Actors and Extras Required for Inspirational Student Short Film

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

Hi everyone! My name is Ruby Biggs and I am a student currently in the process of creating my next short film called “My Best Friend Lily”. The deadline for the final product is 18/02/2021 and I will be entering it into multiple film festivals around Australia. For those of you who don’t already know me well, I love to write, direct, film and edit original short films and these films have been finalists in film festivals such as the Bendigo International Film Festival and the Wild By Nature Film Festival 2020.

Synopsis: Lily’s biggest dream is one day becoming a singer, but there’s just one problem - she has an intense fear of public speaking and being in social situations. The only person she is comfortable talking around is her best friend Noah, who she has known for years. When a video of Lily and Noah performing an original song goes viral, Lily must learn to either face her fear of performing in public or be forever trapped in her own anxiety.

Filming dates are between 01/02/2021 and 14/02/2021 in Melbourne Eastern suburbs.

I am looking for one female and male to play the main characters Lily and Noah, both of which have major speaking roles and must be comfortable singing in front of the camera. Having guitar skills for the character Noah is preferred but not necessary.

I am also looking for approximately eight actors to play the roles of Lily and Noah’s friends. These characters will have minor speaking roles.

Lastly I am looking for approximately 20 extras of all ages to play non-speaking roles in the final scene.
