CASTING APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. WE WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH APPLICANTS SOON. THANK YOU.
We are searching for cast aged 12-14 for a number of roles in a standalone TV episode called First Day, to be broadcast on Australian television in late 2017.
All cast must be available between July 9th and 14th and be based in Sydney (or willing to travel at their own cost).
First Day is directed by Julie Kalceff (Starting From Now) and produced by Kirsty Stark at Epic Films (Goober, Wastelander Panda).
It’s Hannah’s first day of high school. It’s also the first day she’ll wear a girls’ school uniform and go by her chosen name instead of the boys’ name she was given at birth.
To audition for any of the roles, please:
1. Get consent from your parent or guardian to audition.
2. Record a video of yourself performing the following monologue and upload it to YouTube or Vimeo. Make sure that your privacy settings allow us to see it (e.g. password protected, not private).
3. Fill out the form below with your details and audition link.
Please submit your expression of interest by 8pm Sydney time ton Sunday June 18th. We will follow up all responses as the audition process progresses. Expressions of interest for extras roles are also welcome.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
Kirsty and Julie
Sometimes I feel like I’m not normal…what is normal anyway, right? I guess, like everyone else. I get stupid thoughts sometimes. I keep them to myself because I don’t want anyone thinking I’m a weirdo. I wonder if everyone gets strange thoughts but just don’t want to admit it. I think we all get strange thoughts.
You want to know what kind of thoughts I get? (beat) Well, I can’t tell you cause, it’s too embarrassing. It is. I just can’t. I mean, you ever have a thought where your mind just wanders off into some unknown world and it captivates you for a minute or two and suddenly you snap out of it because you realize that it’s a messed up thought?
That’s as far as I want to go with it, with what I’m telling you cause it makes me feel funny discussing this but do you, honestly; do you ever—does your mind ever play tricks on you?
