CASTING CALL
MILITARY SHORT FILM – “A NEW WAVE”

SUMMARY: Set in a dystopian future where social safety nets and rehabilitation institutions no longer exist, a cult of post-war soldiers are stranded on a beach. In an attempt to maintain a familiar routine, they continue their wartime exercises, revel in propaganda and embrace military camaraderie. However, despite being their leader, Park has developed a disdain towards his country and his cult’s monotonous cycles. Before abandoning the cult, he challenges the soldiers’ way of thought by preaching his anti-militarist sentiments. While Park attempts to have a fulfilling life off of the beach, the cult – affected by Park’s sermon – is divided into two violent, ideologically opposing factions.

SOLDIER (21+): The film relies heavily on improvisation, so while you will not have a script, we will provide you with a character profile. This profile will either be a story or newspaper article related to a soldier. Along with participating in various scenes in the film (like training with other soldiers), you will have to improvise and use the profile given to you to interact with the other actors.

DIRECTION:
This film’s runtime is approximately 20-30 minutes, and it will take about 5 days of on-location filming at the end of February.
The film will be playing at the Tyneside Cinema sometime in June. But we really hope that this will be a much more enthralling experience for our actors, as opposed to conventional approaches to filmmaking.

It relies heavily on improvisation – allowing your performance to take precedence. Rather than taking the traditional approach to filmmaking, we hope to facilitate an acting experience that just happens to be documented.
