Underground Cinema – Actors Wanted (Melbourne)

Underground Cinema is looking for new actors (m/f) to join their dedicated, hard-working, and infamous in-house troupe of talented performers!

The UGC Acting troupe holds weekly rehearsals for each Underground Cinema event several weeks prior to the production, often led by guest Directors. The troupe works as an ensemble – each performer bringing their own particular skills to the improvisational work done in rehearsals – so that we can bring the characters, history and sense of space and time of the chosen film to life.

Be prepared: production days can be long – with call times early allowing for professional hair & make-up and costume teams to do their awesome thing – but the thrill of improvising around a base structure, working with trained experienced performers & directors of a high caliber and bouncing off our AMAZING UGC audience makes it all worth it!

If you’ve got a history in improvisation, a passion to improve your craft and get in amongst the pulse of Melbourne’s art and performance scene – this is for you!

Although auditions will be workshop-based, and lead by members of the current ensemble, please prepare a monologue of your choosing to present to the troupe. There is no specifications regarding your chosen piece, just chose something that you enjoy and think shows your talents off best!

Audition dates:
Wed 22nd Feb 2012 between 7-10pm

Be prepared for:
A monologue presentation, physical warm up & theatre improvisation & 3 hours of attendance in total.

On the day bring:
A hard copy of your Acting CV & if possible a head shot (although not compulsory)

You will preferably be:
Experienced and or trained in acting/performance and want to further your skills in this field. You will also be hard working and be able to commit to a minimum of 3 events. This is a long-term project and a volunteer position.

If this is you then please email us by 5pm on the 20th Feb 2012 with the subject heading “ACTOR”, a cover letter including your contact phone number and attach your CV.

You will be contacted by phone to book you into the audition. GOOD LUCK!

P.S. Please ensure that you have read the full job description and website before calling with any queries. Thankyou. http://www.undergroundcinema.com.au

Eminem Reveals Cover Artwork For ‘Shady XV’

In true Eminem fashion, the rapper-songwriter has uploaded a 3-second Instagram video revealing the edgy artwork for his upcoming album Shady XV.

In the short but silent clip, Eminem flips a card with a ‘Friday the 13th’ horror- story-esque motif which will work as the cover art for his much-anticipated ‘best of’ record’. The album will be a two-disc set and will celebrate the 15th anniversary of Eminem’s record label, Shady Records.

An Accolade Bigger Than An ARIA Award: Sansa Stark’s Love

It’s been a big couple of years for Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy (real name James Keogh); topping the 2013 Triple J Hottest 100 for the hit single ‘Riptide’, an ARIA nod, and a five-album deal with Atlantic Records. But perhaps at the top of Vance Joy’s list of successes is Sansa Stark’s public declaration of love for the crooner.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner (better known as the brazen-haired Sansa) showed her affections for the Aussie songwriter this week by tweeting out a few lines of Keogh’s new single ‘Mess is Mine’.
