Two Graves is an neo-Western set in Australia, combining the Spaghetti Western style with an analogue-modern twist. The story is both an introspective on the morality of justice and a deconstruction of the Western genre.
Two Graves has been written by Carl Emmerson, a young filmmaker with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), under the guidance of AACTA-nominated screenwriter Jaime Brown (The King, The Mule, Brothers’ Nest) and is produced by Dan Sanguineti (Me & My Mates vs. the Zombie Apocalypse). Carl’s previous short film, Airlock, was awarded Best Screenplay at Focus on Ability 2018.
Within the story of Two Graves, there is an assortment of outlaw bandits to cause trouble in different ways.
Your audition should include:
