Auditions in Calgary, Canada – Short Film Project


Audition for an Awesome Calgary Short Film


Type: Film

We are a couple of local writers filming our first short! We met in acting class and our dysfunctional and dark minds were immediately drawn to one another. As we were rehearsing lines, we were planning out our storyboard. We are hoping to start filming in January and plan to enter it into film festivals once it’s completed.

We are looking for 2 lead roles and 2 supporting roles for this project. The script is thrilling with unexpected turns! Below is some info on the project and the roles.

• Logline: A voyeuristic couple spices up their lives by breaking into other couple’s homes. They’re not the only ones with secrets…
• Production Type: Independent
• Project length: Short Film (10-12 minutes)
• Required Commitment: multiple rehearsal days and 2-3 production evenings
• Production location: Calgary
• Production Company: DunGen Productions

Available Roles:
Woman (25-35, lead female)
Woman is energetic and playful – a spontaneous free spirit who likes adventure. It was all her idea to switch from movie nights to breaking into other couples’ homes.

Man (25-40, lead male)
Man is reserved and technical. He wouldn’t normally do this himself, but finds he enjoys the technical precision involved. His love and lust for Woman overrides any morality issues he would otherwise have.

Alexandra Leben (30-45, supporting female)
A beautiful, elegant woman who draws your attention. She just doesn’t want her secrets brought to attention and will do anything to protect them.

Garret Leben (30-45, supporting male)
A handsome, successful doctor who supports his wife and shares her secrets. Their love is one-of-a-kind.
