Actress Wanted.

WRITTEN BY Max Currie.

Amy’s a sweet but struggling actress. After enduring a psychologically probing audition, her life seems to change for the better when she lands her first real acting job in an obscure but well paid movie. What she doesn’t realise is that she’s caught the attention of a monstrous voyeur.

Amy’s pressured into plastic surgery for her role in the movie, and while unconscious, a wireless microphone and battery pack is sewn inside her. She emerges from the operation unaware that the real movie, the snuff film you’re watching, is now in full swing.

We watch her through an expanding network of cameras hidden in her car, her bedroom, even her shower – and men in distant vans track her when she goes outside. When a mysterious stranger warns her to flee New Zealand, Amy dismisses him as a madman, but then she starts to notice troubling coincidences she can’t explain away.

By the time she’s found the hidden cameras, it’s too late… if she ever wants to see her boyfriend alive, she must take direction from a disembodied voice, relayed to her through an embedded earpiece.

Amy thinks she’s going crazy, but then she finds a way to fight back. With the help of a cameraman, she turns the cameras following her into weapons, rescuing her boyfriend and forcing her voyeur into the open. Who they are will both shock and disturb you.
