A surreal hybrid documentary/narrative film for a Masters Degree Thesis.
Set in the world of academia, the characters in the narrative scenes work towards answer the question of the thesis. Open to casting against gender/type/ethnicity. This is an unpaid opportunity for a student film. Demo reel footage will be provided, as will craft services. Project will shoot over the beginning of December - no character is required for multiple days. Once we receive applications we will be asking actors to self-tape, we will not be holding live auditions. Project will shoot in Toronto and Saint Catharines (Only Prof. Jameson, Tiffy, Student, Profs A &B are planned to shoot in St. Catharines - please indicate if you happen to be from Niagara, otherwise travel will be arranged to transport actors from Toronto to St. Catharines).
Please send headshots/resumes/indicate what role(s) you are interested in to email@example.com
