The Network: A short film.

'The Network' is a 7-minute arthouse/dark comedy film about the Older Women’s Network (O.W.N) of NSW. On the surface, the network is an upstanding and respectful community centre raising money for the less fortunate. Beneath the surface they are nothing more than an international crime ring. Bake sales and opportunity shops are simply a front for money laundering and organised crime. Bruiser is the club president of a Newtown, vegan motorcycle gang called ‘The Long Blacks’. In order to obtain permission to open a sustainable tattoo studio, in support of the animal welfare society, Bruiser must meet with the Older Women’s Network and convince the club President, Josephine O'Halloran and her vice-president, Margaret Porter, that this will be a profitable business for everyone.

1st Lead: Josephine O’Halloran - O.W.N.

Elderly president of the Older women’s network, Josephine O’Halloran is a cold and heartless woman. She takes pleasure in belittling others and thrives in her position controlling motorcycle gangs and mobsters in the Newtown area. Sarcastic and sinister, she lacks in approachability. Her stern persona leaves those around her in a nervous state. This role will allow the actor to exercise their comedic edge in a subtle and artistic manner.

Female, aged 55 and over

Applications closed 4 October 2019.

2nd Lead: Margaret Porter - Older Women’s Network

Elderly member Margaret is lacking in confidence. She is often cautious to speak but wants nothing more than to please Josephine, head of the Older Women’s Network. Her demeaner is sweet and approachable. This role will allow the actor to exercise their comedic edge.

Female, aged 55 and over

Applications closed 4 October 2019.
