Actor wanted - Auckland HORROR SHORT FILm

Hey Guys,

Wanting to cast a Male actor age 20ish-30ish to play a main role. Experience preferred but if you can act you can act, the love of film and in particular Horror films is a must. This is purely for the love of making a film so as such "Fun" is the only payment (food and drink on the shoot days also)

Please contact me if this sounds like you :-)

Whats wrong with being a noob? People have to start somewhere. And everyones first efforts aren't going to be great are they? Progression.

Thanks Nexus, Yes this is my First film, however i have good equipment and have been self teaching for the last 7 months, i have an extremely large background in technology including working for Sony as Technical Support for Audio Visual devices for a few years and have done a lot of photography work so im fairly confident in my ability :-) New doesn't always mean bad.

I mean no disrespect. It's basically showing the people that you are able to carry your own weight and produce something noteworthy so that you don't waste THEIR time. My best advice would be to either recruit some friends or simply try make something by yourself.

Since you both entered the 48Hours then post up a link to your respective films.

Have done in my thread.

I just don't think anyone should show an attitude of contempt towards anyone who is willing and wanting and passionate about making films that hasn't any work to show because they're just starting out.

Not having a go at you Robstar, but I remember all too well of a pompous website called dvxuser which i found really cool to begin with, but was immediately but off (and pissed off) when I realized most of the regular posters on there and admin were nothing more than elitist twats that were incredibly condescending and acted as if they were the best film makers i nthe world.

Also I noticed all they ever did was brag about what equipment they had and used yet their films were nothing special what so ever.

The last thing one of those idiots said to me on there was that I needed a IMDB resume of films I'd made to COMMENT on any films ever made and to give my opinion.

That to me, is the definition of an elitist TWAT.

lol I'm just saying bro. I'm pretty straight up and I tell it how it is. Just tryna give you a heads up to increase your chances of getting people to collaborate with you. Why not prowl the local polytech or institute of technology for 1st year students? They're pretty keen to help out, just throw yourself out there.

I was just wondering i am 17 years of age, some say i look 20+. So if there is any posibility that i can play that role, i would love that opportunity to show case my talent and be the main role on your horror movie. No experience only 1 year of Dance and Drama in school, but i love acting.
