Show Ponies Online Gallery

After our Show Ponies workshops and exhibition earlier in the year, we had so many amazing artworks to share. We have put them on the Show Ponies Online Gallery for everyone to enjoy (and purchase, if you want)! All proceeds from sales of these items go directly to the artists. 

Casting Call

Messy Collective is seeking up to 12 members of the LGBTQI+ community to appear in a series of informative videos about online safety. We’re looking for a diverse representation from the LGBTQI+ community across ethnicities, abilities, age, gender identities and sexual orientation.

The 30-45-second videos will be educational but fun/humorous; so an ability to make us laugh (and have a laugh) is what we’re looking for!

Must be comfortable in front of a camera. Acting experience preferred but not essential.

You must also be reliable, collaborative, easy-going, and comfortable in a group setting.

If this sounds like you, please email production@nullmessy.com.au, providing:

  • Name and any info on acting experience
  • Short selfie clip introducing yourself (max. 1 minute, using your phone is fine).
  • Demo reel (if you have one)
  • “A couple of sentences on why you want to be involved in this project promoting online safety within the LGBTQI+ community?”

Successful applicants will need to be available for 1 to 2 days in mid-July. Filming will take place in Sydney.
