If you’ve never been to the Melbourne Cup Carnival, you might think it’s not
for you. You might dismiss it because you think it’s just for people with
fancy hats, or people who like horses. In reality, this couldn’t be further
from the truth. The Melbourne Cup Carnival welcomes everyone – young people,
old people, conservative people, weird people, wonderful people, straight-up
people and cool people – no matter who you are, the Carnival has something
for you.

This year, we’re going to reposition the Carnival in people’s minds by
inviting the entire world. Instead of just the people who go every year
(although they’ll be there, of course) at this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival
there’ll be an eclectic mix of people from all walks of life.

Casting: Friday 11th August 2-6pm

Shoot: 18TH AUGUST in London. Artists need to be London based or
make their own way to London. Production will not cover travel expenses

fly them over to Melbourne for the actual carnival so can you check if they
would be around the first 2 weeks in November. Further fees for this if it
goes ahead will be negotiated in good faith.

They need to come to the casting in something that represents this as they
might be asked to use their own wardrobe.
