Male Lead Wanted for Short Post Apocalyptic Drama (Shot on Film)
The film follows masculine father Robert and his diabetic daughter Cynthia, struggling to survive in a nuclear bunker. With food supplies running short, Robert resolves to manipulate Cynthia into venturing out to the post-apocalyptic wasteland alone so that he can survive longer.
A slow-burn standoff between a selfish father and selfless daughter, 'We All Fall Out' explores themes of masculinity, innocence, and the notion that society raises its men to look after themselves and its women to look after others.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesRehearsals will take place throughout September at the convenience of the selected cast.
Production will take place in late September (likely the Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th), but note that dates are not confirmed at this time.
This job is unpaid
Dear all applicants - just wanted to highlight that there was a typo made in question 2 (regarding a short listed audition with another male actor). The shortlisted audition will be with the shortlisted FEMALE applicants, in the running to play Roberts daughter, Cynthia.
Apologies for any confusion.
