Strongman Pictures’ NOVA STAR Needs…a Lead Star!

13 April 2018

Melbourne-based genre production company, Strongman Pictures (TARNATION, SHEBORG MASSACRE), have just put out a casting call for the latest feature, NOVA STAR.

Set in an 80s’ retro-future-world, Mack and her robot co-worker Spanners, clean toilets aboard a majestic spaceship, the Nova Queen. When an ancient star fragment is embedded in Mack’s skull by a dying space princess the space-shit hits the space-fan. Mack & Spanners are chased across the galaxy by Kill-Bots, Space Pirates, Bounty Hunters and an evil Space Queen who will use the Star to flush the entire cosmos out of reality through a black hole. Using everything she knows from a life working in sanitation it’s up to Mack to save the star, and save the galaxy!

The role on offer is for the female lead, Mack, a Senior Sanitation Technician aboard the Nova Queen. She’s a hard worker, and happy with her lot in life – until the dying Princess Nova entrusts her with the fabled Nova Star! We are looking for someone with great charisma, and comedic timing, who has an interest in stunts. The character is quite biting and sarcastic, with the ability to be both innocent and badass!

The casting call is asking for a performer with great comic timing and an interest in stunts! You will be working with one of Australia’s leading stunt men, with credits including THE MATRIX franchise, WINCHESTER, WOLF CREEK and many more, to create our epic space fight sequences!

NOVA STAR is filming around Melbourne over 6 weeks, beginning at the start of August and you will need be available for up to 3 weeknights a week plus weekends and also be available for 3 – 4 rehearsals along with costume fittings prior to shooting.
