Title: Calling All Jugglers, Acrobats, and Anyone Else With Neat Sideshow Tricks

ELSEWHERE is a 5-minute short to be entered into local and international film festivals. Elsewhere is the story of Max, a carnival worker, and his doomed infatuation with Elsie, the Ringmaster’s wife. The film will have a stylish vintage look and feel, with vintage-style costumes and a retro carnival theme.

We have an amazing cast already in place, and are looking for a couple more special people to round it out. We are specifically looking for actors with carnival talent – a juggler, an acrobat, a fire twirler, and anyone else who might have something cool to offer!

Elsewhere will be shot on the Mornington Peninsula on the 16th of April. If you don’t have transport we can likely arrange some for you, and there will be accommodation available as we will be shooting until late into the night. Roles are unpaid, but catering is provided and you will receive a copy of the finished film for your reel.

We are an experienced team making a series of films exploring the concept of the femme fatale. We have a strong vision for this film, and would love to have you on board!
