‘It Gets Better’ Opens Cast Audition

Dear Straight People announced the cast audition for their upcoming short ‘It Gets Better’.

‘It Gets Better’ is a working title short film under the same production as ‘Getaway’, ‘BDSM’, and ‘Straight Best Friend’, Dear Straight People. It will be under the direction of Jason Lee with his notable work ‘The Buddy’ which has garnered over 3.5 million views on Viddsee’s YouTube channel. It depicts a bittersweet love story examining same-sex couples’ challenges in the not-so-distant past. The filming of this project is planned to start on July 21st onwards.

PLOT: Set in the 1990s, a young gay couple attempt to build a relationship during a time of heightened homophobia.

On other hand, actor Steven David Lim from “Getaway” has been confirmed as part of the cast. And for aspirant actors, here are the 4 speaking roles open for auditionees:

1. MARCUS: Aged 20 – 35 / Chinese / Lead role

Extroverted, cheeky and a bit of a dreamer, Marcus is a hopeless romantic who gives his all in relationships.

Steven David Lim plays the older version of Marcus so the ideal candidate should bear a passing resemblance to Steven.

Grounded and practical, Hassim starts to lose faith in his relationship admist an increasingly homophobic climate.

3. ZACH: Aged 20 – 30 / Any race / Support role

Outgoing and confident, Zach has a thing for older men.

4. CHEE KEONG: Aged 30 – 65 / Chinese / Support role

Fierce and intimidating, Chee Keong is a homophobic Ah Beng. Fluency in Hokkien is ideal.
