Young Point Cook actor Lorcan has appeared in his first-ever short film.

The 10 year-old stars in a seven-minute long movie called Dad’s Guide to Engaging with Women.

The movie was made by students from RMIT University’s School of Media and Communication, to enter in festivals and competitions.

The film is also available to watch on YouTube, where it has racked up more than 360 views.

Lorcan auditioned for the movie at the suggestion of his acting teacher, Adam Turnbull, who runs ATA Acting Studio.

Lorcan said that Mr Turnbull suggested him for the role of a younger version of the main character in Dad’s Guide to Engaging with Women, because he looked a lot like the actor playing the part.

Lorcan said that he hoped to become a professional actor in the future.

“I saw actors on television and I saw some behind-the-scenes videos, and it looked like fun,” he said. “You get to meet new people and do lots of different things.”

His advice for other young actors is to immerse themselves in a scene to avoid getting nervous. “Forget anyone is watching you and go with the scene, feel like it’s something you are doing in real life,” he said.
