"TRANSITION: THE SERIES - TEASER"
TREMBLING VOID STUDIOS
[SÜ] Lead, 25-37 years old female, trans.
TRANSGENDERED MTF-SPECTRUM ACTORS ONLY
ALL LEVELS OF EXPERIENCE
Sü is a recent immigrant to Vancouver and an employee at a tech office. Early in transition, she comes out as trans at work and loses her job. This is on the same day that she gets renovicted. Suddenly broke and homeless, she phones up her string of dodgey exes, looking for a couch to sleep on.
The actor should be ready for comedy and light drama. Improv is a plus. She should also be at least somewhat visibly trans - someone who does not always "pass."
Actors with non-Vancouver accents (including American accents) and actors of colour are strongly encouraged to audition.
No previous acting experience required.

"Transition" is a fantastic satire created by and centred on transgendered people in East Vancouver, Canada. It's political, weird and pleasantly crude.
The teaser forms the core of a November crowdfunding venture. Come early 2013, we will be shooting 4-6 episodes of 20-30 minutes each.
We will be rehearsing and shooting for up to six days starting between October 25th and 29th, depending on availability. This is a non-union shoot.
$350-550 for duration of shoot. Rate of pay varies according to financial need of actor.
For actors outside of Vancouver and within North America, the company can provide travel to Vancouver and billeting for the duration of production. For actors outside of North America, the company is open to providing a travel subsidy.
WHEN APPLYING, PLEASE INDICATE YOUR RELATION TO THE TRANS COMMUNITY. OTHERWISE WE CAN'T TELL IF YOUR AGENT HAS SUBMITTED YOU BY MISTAKE,
Location: Vancouver BC
Compensation: $300-550, depending on financial need, plus travel and billet
