We have a variety of featured character roles to cast in our epic road movie, appearing all over the north island. 

We are particularly interested in finding these lead characters:

  • Penelope, 21 years old - Penny is a unique looking covergirl model who always gets what she wants. She is intelligent, charismatic and funny, with a short temper.
  • Guy, 22 years old - Guy is an anarchist, dumpster diving freegan with rugged good looks. He is a successful small time criminal on his first big mission to take down the world's largest corporation.
  • Brent, 18 years old - The young looking (and even younger acting) brother of Penelope, Brent is the strange comic relief character. He is obsessed with a superhero named LAPWING, he dresses and speaks like his idol. 

After her father’s unexpected death, a blacklisted model sets out to ditch her dependent ‘superhero’ brother with their estranged mother, but becomes entangled with a charismatic anarchist whose revolutionary world makes her realise she’s been pursuing the very things she should be fighting against.

Auditions will be held in Auckland, Hamilton and (hopefully) Wellington.

If you are interested in a part for the film, please email a headshot and brief summary of your acting experience (or a link to your work) to  before May 21st.
