Left Tail Light - Actors for Short Film

New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

'Left Tail Light' follows the plight of 24-year-old Lara in western Sydney, as she inadvertently acquires the help of her friend 18-year-old Tegan to find a way to abort her pregnancy. One night, an old school classmate walks in the restaurant in which they work, and Tegan hatches a plan. Mayhem ensues.

Hi, my name is Mel Avanzado and I'm a producer/writer/director (over 100 credits) passionate about making 'Left Tail Light', a 17-minute crime drama whose ending REALLY happened.

The characters and incidents preceding are fiction but devilishly conceived by me and
fellow writer/actor Jessica Trueman (both based in Sydney).

We would like 5 actors to play:

Adam - boyfriend of Lara (around 24yo)
Roger - truck driver (c. 40-66)
Ralph or Rhonda - restaurant owner (c.40-70)
Barry - cop (c.35-66)
Sally - cop (c.21-30)

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Shooting approximately in September and October, 2021 on weekends. At least one night shoot at the restaurant scene.
