Title: One Lead Actor – Short Film About 'Anxiety' Another Called 'PJ & Paddy'
Audition 01 – Paddy. Paddy is a male in his mid 20’s and of Polynesian decent. This film has a lot of dialogue and a lot of close ups. Paddy interacts with PJ his stuffed dragon toy who comes to life during this period of the film. (Movie / Animation reference – Ted / Paddington)
PJ & Paddy is about a boy who feels like he has to be grown up now that his father has passed. See’s himself as an adult in the first part of the film in the end walks off as a child toward his fathers funeral at the cemetery.
Audition 02 – Anxiety. Iosefo is a male in his mid – late 20’s of Maori / Polynesian decent . This film has a lot less Dialogue and ideally looking for someone who can pull of a stressed beneficiary and a newly formed person positive and energetic. (Movie / Animation reference – Smurfs for style of Animation)
Anxiety is about Iosefo a normal citizen who suffers from Anxiety / Depression. When Iosefo loses something close to him in the family courts these emotion / thoughts start to linger. He finds himself standing on a bridge over the motorway when his conflicting thoughts are presented by 2 characters who stand on the ledge as his conscience.
Ideally the characters are very similar so the audition would just be one collective audition.
Looking to do the first round of Auditions on: ( Auckland near the Langham )
