We are looking for someone in the age range of 18-23, but who would look convincing as a 16 year old girl. Amelia is a quiet and introverted character, who has never been hunting before. We are currently searching locations around greater Wellington and further out, so some transport will be required for the shoot. We are looking for someone who doesn’t mind spending a lot of time in nature and in the rough.

Female, aged 18 to 23
