Two Actors Required for Dad & Son Roles in Student Short Film - Paid

Queensland, Australia
Listed by View details

Hi, everyone, we are a student production team looking for a male 10-12 years old and a father 40-55 years old to interpret the leading characters in a drama short film.

The short film about Julian who lives in rural Australia where his family has a farm. He has developed a strong bond with a goat, and his family has decided to sell their animals since they need the money. Julian torn by the idea of his goat being taken away and slaughtered, decides to go on a mission to release Olivia off the farm to save her.

This will require being comfortable with animals as there will be some scenes being close to the goats. The dialogue is minimal in this short film, only exchanging some words in three scenes of the film.

Our aim with this project is to join local film festivals like the Brisbane Film Festival, West End Film Festival, Queensland film Festival, FlickerFest etc.

About our team:
Our team is composed by a professional photographer expanding her career in film and storytelling. We are confident that we can create a beautiful and simple film that can touch subjects like growing up, facing death, attachments etc.

We also count with the experience of a professional production designer and a trained & experienced actor that will be helping as assistant director.

For more information, please contact us asap as we will be recruiting in the next two weeks.

Looking forward to work with you.
