Piki Films are seeking a Maori girl, 12-14 years old, to play a support role in a new film directed by Taika Waititi.
The character is outgoing with a strong sense of humour and confidence. A country kid, she's independent, can handle herself in the bush, and is an experienced horse-rider. She can also sing and play guitar. There will be rehearsals & horse riding lessons if required, prior to shooting.
You must be available for about 5-7 days between 11 May to 15 June for filming around the North Island.
Record a video of you telling a joke and strumming on the guitar - preferably at the same time! Upload this to youtube, Vimeo, or Dropbox, and send us a link on the form below. Make the settings private if you don't want everyone to see it.
