Volunteer TROPFEST ENTRY

at CBHA - Sydney

INDEPENDENT SHORT FILM looking for ACTORS for TROPFEST application

UNDER PRESSURE is an intense hostage situation, where three thugs, trapped in a warehouse with two hostages, have very little time to figure out how they are getting out of there whilst the police is banging on the door outside.

Each one of the thugs has a very distinctive personality and a different (and disagreeing) point of view to what needs to happen next so they can get out of this situation alive.
After a heated discussion, they will come to a solution that doesn’t exactly satisfy all of them.

ABOUT THE CHARACTERS

ANTON, 34 – The smartest, most respectful, leader of the gang. He thinks before he acts and he keeps calm at all times. He has experience in hostage situations and knows what he is doing. He understands that the hostages are their leverage and thinks the only way out of that warehouse is to negotiate their way out.

BARRY, 36 – Tough, bad-ass, the muscle of the operation. He despises weakness and picks on people that are weaker than him. He has done time and sworn to never go back. He would rather die (or kill) than being arrested again. He wouldn’t mind using hostages as human shields to shoot their way out of there.

CHARLIE, 26 – Not ready, afraid, the third wheel. Charlie realized he didn’t want to be a part of it all as soon as things went wrong. The moment they dragged in a hostage, he wanted out of it. He is just a kid who got involved with bad people and now finds himself in a situation that he is not cut for. He thinks they need to surrender, to put their guns down, their arms up and give themselves in, before they end up dead.

PAUL, 25-30 – Hostage


LISA, 25-30 – Hostage

IMPORTANT DATES
Auditions: 12-13 June, 6pm @ St. Peters NSW 2044

OTHER NOTES
We are very excited about this production! We have the warehouse location granted and we had a look on what camera angles we are using already. This film will heavily rely on the actor’s performance, so we are looking for actors that will put their everything on screen.
The film will stay under 7 minutes as we submitting it to TROPFEST 2014 in September.
