Actors Required For Comedy Web Film (Expired)

It's a hard thought to grasp. But in 2031 Mars One will send two male and two female Astronauts to the red planet to start the first human colony. It will be the greatest adventure of the 21st century.

Seven Australian candidates remain from a total one-hundred worldwide. Josh Richards is one of those seven.

The Sydney Opera House believe in Josh so much they've opened their doors for us to film a short comedy video explaining the project and promoting Australia's would-be space explorer.

There will be lots of props, great production value and a range of extravagant characters who interact with Josh as he walks to the launch pad. Applying actors must have a good sense of comedic timing.

With the international reach of Mars One and the Opera House this video is planned to go viral.

Rehearsal / production dates

Shooting May 4. No rehearsals.

David Bowie Impersonator

This David Bowie impersonator will close the film singing 'Life on Mars' with all his heart. The actor does not need singing experience as it will be overlaid in post. However they should be confident with their physicality and ready to commit to a Bowie performance as large and loud as the legend's suit.
