Here are step by step instructions to audition for BREATH. Please read carefully.
1. Have a look at the character descriptions and the test scene, then choose whether you'd like to audition for PIKELET or LOONIE. Make the decision based on who you relate to the most.
2. Record your audition (tips on self taping are attached). At home in natural lighting on a digital camera or i-phone is fine. We're not looking to see your "acting" in the scene, just keep it very natural - it's just two teenage boys chatting, like you would in real life.
3. You'll need to upload two separate files to this link - 1. the scene, and 2. a short clip telling us a little bit about yourself (e.g, best surfing experience, what you like to do on weekends) and tell us a joke or the funny story from your life. As an optional extra, you could also upload a third clip with some footage of you surfing.
If you have any essential questions regarding the project or the scene, please email [email protected]
For any technical help in uploading your audition, contact Showcast on the number provided. They will not be able to answer queries regarding the film itself.
There is no final deadline at this stage but we'd encourage you to send through in the next week or so. Shortlisted applicants will likely be notified in 6-8 weeks. We'll also post on our facebook page once the roles are cast. https://www.facebook.com/barrett.castingsydney
