Casting Three Paid Roles for New Short Film 'The Burglar!'

Auckland, NZ. Apply from all NZ.
Listed by View details

We're a passionate group of Filmmakers operating in Auckland, looking to cast for our slapstick comedy silent film The Burglar.

If you know how to act expressively and with high energy, communicating with gestures and body language rather than words, or if you think you've got what it takes, then we're very interested in talking to you.

I'm an independent Filmmaker who's worked in the film industry but found it was a long road to being able to express myself in that job. So now I want to make something on my own with all the skills I've gained over the years. I'll be producing and directing the film. We've got a Writer on board, a DOP, our lead actor, an Editor and an Art coordinator. We're all united by our deep passion for film and just want make something great and above all entertain.

We're offering three roles for two men and one woman. All ethnicities are welcome. Shooting will take place in Auckland.

I've linked my Vimeo channel so you can see some of my work. We plan on entering this film in the Show Me Shorts film festival so if we make it you'll get some great exposure.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

We're aiming to start rehearsing and shooting around mid October. Shooting will last for one week.

Job payment

$80 per day - Require for 4 hours per day.


Loverboy is a dopey, but reasonably handsome man. He is the lover of ADULTERESS. He is a hopeless romantic, completely clueless, and his stupidity is rivalled only by his cowardliness.

Male, aged 18 to 40

Applications closed 11 October 2021.


Adulteress is an elegant woman, perhaps without the finances to support her refined tastes. She is married to THE PRIZEFIGHTER, but is currently having an affair with LOVERBOY. She is open and expressive when she is with her lover, but more tentative when with her overbearing husband. She is somewhat slobbish, but resourceful when required.

Female, aged 18 to 40

Applications closed 11 October 2021.


Prizefighter is a tough, rugged guy. He is the husband of ADULTERESS. He thinks with his fists, and no sense of humour. He is a man who makes his living from his toughness, and is ALWAYS the toughest guy in the room. He has ice in his veins, and has been recently deprived of a fight, meaning his endless store of latent aggression has had no outlet, and is ITCHING FOR A FIGHT!

Male, aged 18 to 40
