Self-funded microbudget short film shooting in Dublin. ‘The Babysitter’ tells the story of a little boy’s relationship with his AI toy. A young boy is abandoned for a night with the only friend he has in the world. Jack (7) has come to rely on ‘Sophia’, a cute smart speaker his parents have left him with all too often. One day when his mother storms out and his father has to leave for work, Jack is left in the care of Sophia. Sophia is not an evil computer, she’s just a little robot who can’t love him back.

The lead role of Jack is being cast. Actors playing ages of 7 – 8, with on screen / theatre experience are strongly preferred. Casting is open to actors of any ethnic and cultural background. A guardian or parent will need to take part in all aspects of the filming process.

The film is written and directed by Gareth Stack, a writer and director with a background in music video and radio drama. Production provided by Edge 3X Studios and Ciara Costello.

Shooting days approx September 1st – 3rd.
