Aware - 3 short narrative-based episodes aimed at reducing alcohol and drug-related harm in Aotearoa.

We are creating 3 short-form narrative episodes for a safe drug/alcohol awareness campaign (120 -180 seconds.) Our shorts will be fast-paced to cover a dense narrative in a punchy and effective manner.

Being a part of this project will be a great way to get on-set experience and create portfolio work which will be featured on the New Zealand Drug Foundation’s website. Each of the roles does not require a huge commitment (1-2 shoot days) while but will be a great chance to be part of a large project and meet a driven group of emerging filmmakers.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Shooting will be on 17-18 or 24-25 July.
