The Students of Bus Stop Films Canberra, under the tutelage of Canberra Filmmaker, Dan Sanguineti of Sanguineti Media Pictures, would like to put a call out for Canberra Region actors interested in auditioning for roles in their upcoming Inclusive Short Musical Film.
The film’s story was written in workshops by the students earlier this year. They all showed a passion for the Musical film genre and all things fantastical!
Bus Stop Films is an inclusive organisation, and we encourage everyone to consider auditioning.
Singing ability will ultimately form part of the selection criteria for the main roles.
Your audition should include:
a little about your previous acting and singing experience if any,
what role interests you and what you connect with the character from the description,
30 seconds or so of you singing your favorite film musical song.
Auditions are accepted via video and close on Friday 21st August at midnight.
Label the file/title with your name and role you are interested in.
Please send an unlisted Youtube link or private Vimeo link, google drive link or dropbox to: email@example.com
Please note: Late auditions may not be included in the viewing reel for students, but we will let you know if your audition was viewed or not viewed. Viewing begins 9.30pm Saturday 22nd August.
