-ADDITIONAL AUDITIONS AND CALLBACKS-

A light sci-fi comedy about misogyny in online gaming.

Torch, an anxious wreck gamer, attends the launch party for a new game against her will, accidentally meeting one of her online friends in person. Upon meeting, a misogynystic zealot crashes the party, releasing a software mod which allows any upgraded account to destroy the console hardware of any female player they frag in an online game, starting a war to ‘purify’ the network, and catapulting Torch and her friends into a battle for the network’s survival. As they hangout and basically try not to think about it.

Torch (Lead)

Torch – Early 20’s – Any ethnicity

Self-loathing, anxious, and selfish. She feels ignored, and as such regularly ignores her friends in a mean way to validate the notion that they wouldn’t miss her if she was gone. Not suicidal, just neurotic. She feels most energised and like herself when she’s gaming online, where she finds it easier to break out of her shell. Passive to a fault.

Ability to perform dramatic scenes will be required. Some action scenes.

Females, aged 19 to 26 from Western Australia, Australia

Mars (Lead)

Mars – Early 20’s

Sardonic, cynical, and adrift. Self-sabotaging. Feels stuck with nowhere to go. Perpetually locked in her head, always miserable under the surface, beneath her uncaring attitude. Suffers from bouts of depression. She and Torch function as one of each other’s few escapes, gaming online together. Lives with an A.I. roommate, Sprite.

Action scenes required.

Claire (Antagonist)

Claire – Early 20’s – Any ethnicity

Hacker. Curt, efficient, short attention span. Sleep deprived. Developer of the software mod, working with the antagonist to unknown ends. Passionate believer in their cause. Speaks through a heightened vocabulary, similar to poetry.

Action scenes required. Capability to deliver lines with gravitas ideal.
