‘Baby Dole’, set in the so suburban fringes of Western Sydney, is a glimpse into the life of a young woman, Jamie, on the cusp of adulthood faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Suddenly her microcosmic world shifts beneath her feet, and the social climate she was once so sure of is thrust aloft. Ushered to the brink of doubt, Jamie re-examines her place, her environment, and her strained relationships with her young mother, Cheryl, and her troubled boyfriend, Dylan, as she navigates the prospect of motherhood.

This production is a short student film for a major project.

Jamie

Jamie’s unexpected pregnancy puts her lairy, precocious, and stoic charm (often a cause of conflict with authority figures) into check. Defensive, for lack of self-confidence stemming from her disadvantaged background, Jamie begins to realise her hardiness is a defence mechanism. Always precocious and curious, Jamie’s pregnancy causes her to draw into herself, submerged in a quarry of earnest contemplation as she reassesses her environment.

Female, aged 18 to 19

  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience - Any

Applications closed 26 August 2017.

Dylan

Troubled and often temperamental, Dylan is from a broken and abusive family. Witnessing an abusive father, and with little to none parental guidance, Dylan is possessive and at rare times inadvertently abusive towards Jamie. This is a sporadic exception of their relationship. Dylan exhibits an apathetic and hard exterior, however, he is deeply sensitive and insecure, and where his possessiveness of Jamie stems. He holds loyalty and Jamie’s fidelity to him with the utmost value.

Male, aged 18 to 20

  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience - Any

Applications closed 26 August 2017.

Cheryl

A young, single and apathetic mother, Cheryl for the most part leaves Jamie to her own. Having experienced teen-pregnancy herself, Cheryl is somewhat resentful towards Jamie for cutting down her youth so quickly, and thus, has always made up for it as Jamie was growing up; negligent particularly when it came to men and alcohol, but loving and tending when she wanted to be. Her relationship with Jamie has always been somewhat brisk, however, unconditional.

Female, aged 30 to 35

  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience - Any
