Two Adult Actors, Teenage Actor & Child Extras for Surreal Student Short

Two Adult Actors, Teenage Actor & Child Extras for Surreal Student Short

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

Surrealist student film from Swinburne University, shooting in September 2021!

The story: After receiving a diagnosis with a bizarre, un-diagnosable illness, Lou traverses a surreal landscape
attempting to come to terms with a changing perception of themselves through a series of dreamlike encounters.

The film is a surrealist critique on our current social climate, tackling toxic masculinity and gender roles. This encourages more nuanced performances from actors that are subtle and engaging.

We plan to submit our film to Melbourne Queer Film Festival and MIFF (Melbourne international film festival) and provide actors with the film for their show reels.

This short is the second film from Brodie McCuskey at Swinburne University, their first being Avarice which you can check out once you have applied.

Socials coming, look forward to your responses!

The owner of this listing has agreed to abide by local 'working with children' regulations. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
