Synopsis: 
We are film students currently attending Vancouver Film School, and we are in the process of casting our short film entitled ‘The Bridge’. This high-concept allegorical story, greatly influenced by Noir and German expressionist films from the 1920s and ‘30s, will have only one word of dialogue and will be performed through body language and emotion. The roles we are looking to cast are ‘Governing Forces’, personifications of external influences on the life of our protagonist (i.e. Community, Religion, Ego, Government etc.). We are interested in performers who are 35 and older.
Submission Instructions: 

If you are interested, feel free to send an email to TheBridgeShortFilm@gmail.com and, since these are non-speaking roles, pleases include headshots, your reel, and/or a video audition featuring you performing a monologue of your choice under 3 minutes.

Additional Comments (see help text below field): 

We are dedicated to ensuring the safety of all cast and crew members by diligently following the physical distancing guidelines as specified by WorkSafe BC such as but not limited to social distancing, hand-washing/sanitizing stations, and rolling lunch times. Our auditions will be conducted solely through the submission of video audition tapes via e-mail. We have also taken measures to minimize the number of people who will be on our set at any given time, and all crew members present will be wearing masks and taking proper precautions.
