NEW TO THIS? NO PROBLEM.
HERE ARE SOME SELF-TAPE TIPS
the stars over limerick

the stars over limerick (working title) is a multidisciplinary project that includes film, photography & writing. The aim is to create a series of tableaux vivants, photographers and poetic writings that reflect the experience and feelings of growing up in a tiny town in the 90s/00s. Reflections on a chaotic school, evangelicalism, sexuality and events that changed the world.

Shooting will take place in the Limerick, SK area and Regina, SK area.

Please note: Mentions of gender & age represent the character. All genders are welcome to apply for any role they feel drawn to. Similarly, ages represent the age of the character - they are not limitations on the age of the applicant. Preference given to talent over 18. All body types welcome to apply.

PAID. (tbd) Non-union.

Since this project relies on stillness & composition more heavily than advancing a narrative over time, the acting requirements may be considered simplified, however, talent will still need to embody the emotions of the scene in their body and expressions.

KEY ROLES:

The Angel:

The shining star of this small town. Talks about leaving and making it in the big city and everyone hangs their hope on The Angel. Will they ever make it out? Rebellious but everyone loves them so it doesn't really matter. If Kurt Cobain was a cult leader.

  • Presents Masculine

  • Plays for 18.

  • Should be comfortable in equivalent to underwear or swimsuit costumes.

The Innocent:

Thrust into a world that just keeps getting stranger. Growing up in a small-town church, judgement comes pretty naturally but more often than not he plays the role of curious observer. Maybe it's a little too easy to slip into the role of manipulator. Is he the instigator? No he's too pious for that.

  • Male

  • Plays for 18.

  • Should be comfortable in equivalent to underwear or swimsuit costumes.

The Virgin (Whore):

Keeping up appearances is hard when the whole town seems to have something to say about who she is and what she does with her body. Purity culture is a b*tch. That's what you get for being young and beautiful. Which is it? Depends who you ask.

  • Female

  • Plays for 18

  • Should be comfortable in equivalent to underwear or swimsuit costumes.

y2k pastor:

Cell phone clipped to your belt, Bible in your hand and sunglasses on - you are are ready to preach the good news to 17 people each and every Sunday.

  • Male

  • Plays 40-50

A brief overview of your acting and modelling experience.

when i lost you - short film

Poetic, reflective, voice-over type short. Aiming to be less than 90 seconds so it can be posted on social media. Jo reflects on passing moments near the end of his relationship with Cassidy - trying to decipher exactly when it was that he lost his love. A reflective, moody and aesthetic film that is simple but effective. Feel to free to apply as a couple if applicable.

No budget, a small honorarium will be available, nonunion. 

JO

Male, 25-32.

Jo is kind and caring and interested in building a healthy and mature relationship. He cares about quality time spent with his partner. He likes to keep a clean, comfortable, safe home. He is sophisticated but in a homey and grounded kind of way.

CASSIDY

Male, 25-32.

Cassidy is fun and energetic and outgoing. He is a little bit messy and indecisive. He likes to be the center of attention and enjoys being around Jo because he likes to give him attention.

As these roles are a romantically involved couple - there is a general sense of closeness & intimacy in the film (laying together, holding hands, touching an arm or shoulder etc). Our priority is always to create a safe environment for cast and crew.

microshorts

We are interested in creating a series of microshorts that are simple moments in life - some good, some bad. They would be used in a variety of ways to create aesthetic films and reels for social media. There aren't necessarily specific characters that need filling - we'd potentially group a handful of scenes together in one session and get a variety of content. It's also very possible that a microshort could become something longer or reoccurring.

A great opportunity to get in front of the camera and work with Aaron Sinclair Film.

No budget, Unpaid, Non-union.

THEMES INCLUDE:

 

Single-ness

Dating

Relationships on the rocks

Falling in love

Living with ADHD

Loneliness

Trying to met someone
