What's On

Two-Three Actors 13-18 Years Old Required for Healthcare Training Videos (Expired)

We are making a series of videos for NSW Health that will involve several young people, playing teenagers who have come into contact with the health system (e.g. via a GP or hospital). We are looking for 2-3 actors (male/female, diverse ethnicity) aged between 13 and 18. Actors must have acting experience, be able to learn lines, take direction, and deliver authentic performances. We will be asking the actors to show a range of reactions, from shutdown and uncooperative, to positive and helpful, depending on the scenario. We'd be especially interested in hearing from young actors that have had any contact with the health system for health challenges (e.g. hospital ED, community health, GP, counsellor, or other health professionals). The shoot days are currently May 5, 10, 11, 12. Actors will be required for 1-2 of those days. Locations are Parramatta and St Leonards.

Rehearsal / production dates

Rehearsals will take place on location/set.

The shoot days are currently May 5, 10, 11, 12. Actors will be required for 1-2 of those days. Locations are Parramatta and St Leonards. 

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Job compensation

$negotiable (at least equity minimum)

A bit more about what we'll need the actors to be able to do - We will be asking the actors to show a range of reactions, from shutdown and uncooperative, vulnerable and awkward, to becoming more engaged in a personal conversation, and becoming more positive and open and giving information, depending on the scenario...

Also, just to clarify, there will be a couple of instances where the trained health professional (e.g. doctor or nurse) will carry out some basic health checks involving the young person/actor.  For example, taking their blood pressure or checking for broken bones, etc.  The health professionals will be actual health professionals, not actors.
