Actors Wanted for Drama/Survival Short Film
'A Safe Place' (working title) is a student short film made at SAE Institute as the final major project. The film will be submitted to multiple festivals upon its completion in 2019.
Haunted by the murder of his only child, Quinn searches the post-apocalyptic bushland alone for vengeance. This changes when he comes across a recently orphaned young boy: Shane. He takes Shane into his care while still tracking the men that killed his son, but is he doing the right thing?
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesAuditions will be held on Mon 21 and/or Tue 22 January.
We're looking at doing production between 23 Jan - 03 Feb. There will be no more than 9 shooting days. Dates will be arranged to fit successful applicants' schedules. These are also minor roles that won't be needed for every day.
Once production is complete we may require ADR sessions between the 22 Mar and 05 Apr.
Logan (Antagonist) Needed 29 & 31 Jan
Logan had the same job as Jack, becoming friends because neither of them fit in. Jack let Logan in on his crime jobs, helping him out and splitting the pay. If things went wrong he wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. When society collapsed, he stayed with Jack. He prefers not to kill people but knows (or convinced himself) it’s necessary. As many months in the new-world passed and Jack demanded more killings, Logan realised hardly any of it’s necessary. He realised Jack is starting to lose it

Max (Antagonist) Needed 29, 30, 31 Jan & 01 Feb
Max was working a dead-end job before he joined Jack and Logan's gang. It was partly control and manipulation from Jack but Logan and Max gained a strong friendship. Max always wanted to be a part of something and rise through the ranks, the gang members wouldn’t let him, but Jack promised him he would. When civilisation fell, he took the opportunity. As Jack and Logan’s relationship decayed, it appeared that it was an opportunity for Max to prove himself to Jack.
