Three Actors and Supporting Cast Needed for JMC Grad Project

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

OVERVIEW: 'GRIM' is a supernatural dark comedy mini-series that blends rough-as-guts regional Australia with the existence of supernatural mythology and lore.

My name is Bree and I'm an aspiring director and cinematographer in my last year of film school. I'm filming the pilot episode/ POC for my grad project. I aim to develop it further after I graduate, and also submit it into festivals and upload it online.

LOGLINE: A bogan, Australian larrikin, bestowed with the ability to reap souls for the Grim Reaper must complete his lifetime contract or face eternal damnation.

PILOT EPISODE SYNOPSIS:
After another gruesome reaping, Trevor finds himself under scrutiny from his supervisor. Morally conflicted, Trevor struggles to put his biases aside, so he seeks the comfort of a loved one; the dear but sassy Doreen.

DATES AND LOCATION:
Filming will take place around mid-February in regional Victoria (TBD) though no further than 1 1/2 hours from Melbourne CBD.
I have three lead roles and lots of supporting roles/ extra positions available*.

*Stunts, prosthetics and smoking (herbal cigarettes) are required with some parts.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Trevor Wingham

A rough, bogan, chauvinistic Australian with a crude sense of humour. He maintains an unkempt appearance, and a tough-as-nails facade. Once an assailant for a bikie gang, Trevor now works for the Grim Reaper, as a reaper of souls. Behind the tough exterior, Trevor needs to become accepting and respectful and learn to be vulnerable if he is to be reunited with his deceased wife. *This role involves stunts.

Alex

Serious and hard-working, Alex is a Psychopomp (a being who tends to the deceased) who works with Trevor. She is professional, sassy and direct. Her contract relies on Trevor’s performance, but with his violent tendencies threatening to expose their operations, Alex is becoming less tolerant. She is tormented by her past with alcoholism, and yearns to redeem herself.

Female, aged 26 to 38

  • Ethnicity: Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islander, Chinese, Indian, Māori, Mediterranean, Pacific Islander , Pakistani
  • Languages: English

Applications closed 3 January 2021.

Doreen

A decrepit, stubborn old lady, and dear friend of Trevor’s. Though her fragile frame is slow, her mind is sharp and quick-witted. She is foul-mouthed, headstrong, but caring and considerate of others. She has been growing suspicious of Trevor's daily activities, and feels that she may be in danger somehow. *Smoking with herbal cigarettes required for the role.

Female, aged 70 to 90

  • Languages: English
  • Accents: Australian

Troy

Troy is a quiet, shell of a man. He is haunted by his criminal record, but has tried hard to move on with his life. He keeps to himself, but is appreciated by the community for his bartending skills. He is the recipient of Trevor's harsh judgement and gruesome reaping. *Stunts and prosthetics required for this role.

PSYCHOPOMP EXTRAS

In Greek mythology, Psychopomps are entities that escort the dead to the afterlife. Going with this idea, the Psychopomps in GRIM are beings that tend to the scene after a soul has been reaped. They help maintain the secrecy of the entire reaping operation from mortals. They cordon the scene and use 'critical correction serum' if someone's memory needs to be "altered" to forget what they witnessed. They dress in black suits with white shirts -so if you have that already, that would be amazing.

Anyone, aged 20 to 50

Applications closed 3 January 2021.

The Faceless Postman

This entity delivers parchments to the Reaper, with the name and location of their next targets. To ordinary mortals, The Faceless Postman presents themselves as an Australian Postie. However, to immortals, it is an intimidating, hulking figure without a face- or lack thereof. They dress in black leather and ride a motorcycle. *Requires someone with a motorcycle, preferably a Harley (but beggars can't be choosers).

Anyone, aged 25 to 59

Applications closed 3 January 2021.

2-3 DEAD BIKIES

Trevor is an ex-bikie. He is haunted by a sequence of events that led to the murder of his wife. So in the bar scene, he hallucinates the bodies of a couple of bikies lying facedown. They are wearing a black leather jacket and denim jeans and black boots. *Fake blood may be involved.

Male, aged 27 to 55

Applications closed 3 January 2021.

Shauna

She is a waitress, and someone who is proactive and fiery. She has been working in hospitality (particularly the bar scene) for a few years and is fed up with sexist comments. Trevor doesn't know who he is dealing with.
