Stare The Sun Down: Female Lead to Play a Social Media Sensation in Crisis

Stare The Sun Down: Female Lead to Play a Social Media Sensation in Crisis

Queensland, Australia
Listed by View details

19 year old 'it girl' Jen is only days away from her 20th birthday but if she continues on her destructive, narcissistic path - intent on attracting ever growing social media attention - she risks burning out long before she comprehends the meaninglessness of her quest and the underlying sense of loss that drives it.

This film is a cautionary tale for a Facebook generation set in New York and shot in Brisbane. It also incorporates some unique, interactive tech elements to engage an audience that lives across multiple devices.

Based on a feature script this short film adaptation is set to be filmed in Fortitude Valley and Kangaroo Point in October and made to feel like New York. The short is aiming for SXSW 2017 as a launch platform to raise investment of the feature to be shot in New York 2017.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.


The range for this role is great and the best example would be a show like The Girlfriend Experience. This beautiful female character seems one dimensional, intelligent and ruthlessly efficient but as the film develops we start to see her unravel and get into scenarios that push her, literally, to the edge. Jen is now on countdown. She has been living like this for far too long and no one could continue to burn so bright without consequences.

Female, aged 18 to 26
