Shooting from Thursday August 4th – Tuesday August 9th for an RMIT student film
Audition dates TBA
——————————————————————————————————————————–
‘Sook’ is a low budget drama film revolving around the Carter family consisting of Jamie,
April and their daughter Sammy. It will be shot predominantly in Wheelers Hill, however
this is subject to change. Actors should have their own mode of transport and should be
able to get to each day of shooting without the assistance of the crew as pick ups are not
within the budget. It is likely that not every actor, apart from Jamie, will be required on every
day of shooting, but Jamie is in every scene bar one meaning he will likely be required
on each day.

Jamie Carter

Jamie is a 30-year-old Australian man who the story revolves around. He is easily manipulated and meek in his demeanour. He had been bullied his whole life by his peers and now by his wife, and it is starting to really effect him and make him feel emasculated. He has a solid relationship with his daughter, Sammy, but she is beginning to think he’s not the amazing father she always believed he was.

April is a 28-year-old teacher who is now the primary breadwinner in her family. Since her husband Jamie got fired, things between them have become very tense and as such she has become abusive. She is incredibly violent towards him as well as emotionally manipulative, but no one in Jamie’s family believes that she could be causing so much damage due to her nurturing demeanour. She loves her daughter, Sammy, but fears that all the violence in their household may be affecting her.
