Choir Girl is a black and white 16mm feature film.

Shooting in August 2016, Choir Girl is a gritty love story about a troubled loner, Eugene, who hopes his stark black and white photographs of his rundown neighborhood, will be his ticket out of it. He becomes infatuated with a teenage prostitute, Cherry, who has a muse like effect on his images. When a magazine is interested in publishing they both have a chance to escape. However with her powerful pimp after her, she refuses to let them go public, and he must decide how far he will go to achieve his dream.

Produced by Ivan Malekin, directed by Michael Wormald. We are casting for the main leads and support characters. The film is low budget, but all roles are paid a mix of a upfront flat fee and deferred. We are only interested in committed and professional actors who fit the character brief.

First round of auditions will be on Tuesday April 19th and Wednesday April 20th in Melbourne. Only suitable applicants will be sent the script and invited to audition. Further details on what is required at the audition will be provided at this stage.

Eugene

Late 20’s, loner, takes stark black and white photos to deal with the violent neighborhood he lives in, and to placate his own feelings of frustration and isolation. Somewhat over weight. Shuffling walk, wary, constantly looking. Inarticulate, eyes difficult to read. When his defenses are down there is a sadness, warmth and fragility to him. On the inside he is a man with real talent and ambition. More than anything he needs human connection. WARNING: Role features sex scenes and nudity.
