New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

The Last Strip is a Comedy/Action, set in a contemporary office during the Holiday season. Synopsis - Carl is a very diligent worker with a desire to avoid others, who when approached by his boss is instructed to wrap their presents for the office’s Christmas bonus. Upon entering the staff room, he is greeted by a stack of presents to wrap, alongside three other employees who are all equally eager for the pay. He is tasked to wrap the most amount of presents to receive his bonus. As the night goes on, and tape is used, Carl is left to fight his co-workers for the last strip of tape, while he confronts his quiet exterior, and becomes more expressive. As the night goes on, and more and more violent actions are taken, Carl begins to learn the value of working with others. The movie ends with the tape not sticking to the wrapping paper, and Carl realising that if they all worked together, they would’ve had a Christmas bonus to share, and they all bond over a newfound friendship.
There are 4 speaking roles in the film. There is no graphic content in the Short. The film may be enlisted into film festivals and will be broadcasted on many Online platforms such as Youtube, Vimeo and others. The crew will be cultivated by students of Sydney Film School. This will lead to a quite open and free environment. The only required part of the film before production will be rehearsals.

Carl

Carl is an early 20’s graduate, recently entering the workplace for the first time. He is quiet, extremely so, to the point where any form of interaction turns him into a nervous mess. He is not comfortable with his other employees and does not want to be in the situation he is currently in, and only agrees at the possibility of payment. As the film progresses, he develops a stronger sense of confidence, and is able to stand up against the other co-workers.

Male, aged 18 to 38

Anna

Anna is a fun, bubbly boss, who is very down to earth. She enjoys the company of others, to the point of unprofessionalism, and often barrates and banters with the co-workers below her on a very casual level. She is also very attracted to Carl, and is always wanting him to break out of his shell. The situation she put the group in is all mainly according to her plan, hoping to bring everyone closer together, with the money bonus as nothing more than a bribe to make it happen.

Female, aged 25 to 60

Applications closed 22 May 2021.

Bobby

Bobby is a burly, himbo-type character, who while isn’t the most social person, isn’t afraid to converse with others. He has no issues with saying what’s on his mind, often being the result of a lot of tension amongst the workplace. His strongest relationship is with Meghan, the two often butting heads, neither necessarily liking or hating one another.

Male, aged 18 to 50

Meghan

Meghan is a snarky, professional worker, who is driven by the prospect of receiving a Christmas bonus. She is willing to fight those around her for any dollar, especially if it's her annoying boss, the annoying douchebag that she butts heads with, or the annoying quiet guy who sits at his desk and reaps big payments. Her strongest relationship is with Bobby, defined by the amount they argue with each other, while still having even a shred of respect for one another.
