Donny (lead) – ROLE OPEN

Male, age 20-30, standard build

Immigrated to Canada a couple years back with a younger sibling. Has been working as a night cleaner ever since. Has fallen for Carmella and is unsure of how to proceed. A nervous disposition. A true romantic at heart. Likes to write poetry.


Carmella (lead) – ROLE FILLED

Played Naseem Naderi

A late night romance guru and radio show host who has begun to lose hope for her own love life. Confident and flirty on-air, but shy and sweet in real life. Enjoys quiet movies nights and a glass of wine.


Mick (supporting) – ROLE FILLED

Played by Syed Zaidi

A bit rough around the edges. Seemingly owns 3 shirts. A wizard in the booth. Offers wisdom to Carmella when she is down (which is every couple of weeks).


How to apply 

Submit a self-taped read of ANY page from ANY scene in the script below.


read the script

I have posted the full script for this short film below. Please read through it and ask yourself if this is the type of short film you wish to star in. If you find the story and characters compelling, then the answer may be yes. 


understand the character

It’s important to really think about the character you are auditioning for. What do they seem to want in the story? What do they value? What kind of person do they seem to be? How might you bring them to life?


record your self-taped audition

Find a partner and ask them to read with you for the self-taped audition. Make sure you rehearse your lines several times prior to recording a take. Many actors submit self-taped auditions fully off book (aka they memorized the scene). Remember, the goal of the audition is to stand out from the pack with a strong performance.
