A grieving reclusive parent breaks down when he fails to open a sealed bag of wraps.

EASY TO OPEN is a gentle but hopeful 8 minute film, an intimate and private look into a father lost in the worst grief imaginable for a parent. A canvas of loss and connection, the film follows him as he takes the first small step to open himself up again to the people who care enough to reach out to him.

This project is very much a character-driven film, and is carried by the strength of its performances.

We have an experienced crew on board this project, consisting of passionate and talented graduates from the Australian Film, Television & Radio School (AFTRS). Our director has had his debut feature film premiere at the Antenna Documentary Film Festival and other short films play at the West End Film Festival and Australian Short Film Today.

SAM (Lead Role, competent drumming skill required)

A 32-year-old man grieving from the death of his son. Before the incident, Sam was a steady, calm and grounded man, who'd spend his Friday nights going to the sports bar with his mates, quietly sipping his beer. He was respected at his workplace as the quiet achiever who could be relied on in difficult times. Already a reserved and private individual, after the incident Sam has isolated himself from his friends, family, and ex-wife. He has since become a lacklustre husk of his former self.

Male, aged 30 to 45

Applications closed 26 August 2019.

CHRIS (Supporting Role)

VOICE-OVER ROLE. Sam's extroverted, good-hearted, and down-to-earth best mate. Chris has been best mates with Sam since childhood and also works in the same workplace. Over the years, Chris is the one voice Sam relies on for counsel. Their families have gotten on well together and Chris was a beloved uncle to Sam's son. He cares immensely about his friend. Within this story, Chris is ultimately the turning point that initiates the most change in Sam's arc.
