Vancouver already has its "Real Housewives," so why not the "Real Hipsters," a premise that might actually bear some similarity to the people who live in the city.

Britt Irvin and Jesse Haddock, creators of a proposed reality TV show called "The Real Hipsters of Vancouver," posted a casting call for a few people on Craigslist and soon got more responses than they could keep up with.

And what might the show's characters look like? Plaid-shirted bohemians with thick glasses? Watching them argue why Fellini is better than Antonioni, while a Bon Iver-like solo artist plays open mic night at a Main Street cafe?

Producers are looking for six or seven hip, fun, attractive people under 40 who believe that "living their life is an art in itself," who romanticize their youth and who live in constant performance mode, the creators said.

"(We) see everything (our) acquaintances eat and every time they kiss their boyfriend on Instagram, so it seems... that these people have no worries about putting their lives out there for everyone to see," Irvin and Haddock told The Huffington Post B.C. this week via email.

The show's premise has its roots in Vancouver's status as the most expensive city in North America, say the creators. They want to show how the city's artistic community is "adapting, improvising and overcoming this hostile environment."

Many believe the city's arts community is eroding after the closing of venues such as the Waldorf Hotel and the Vancouver Playhouse Company last year.

The show hasn't been picked up by a network yet but Irvin and Haddock are meeting with more experienced producers and looking at casting some of the city's more "influential" hipsters.

The idea of a hipster doing something as mainstream as a reality show may seem contradictory, but the producers have already gotten several audition tapes, including from a few "Twitter haters."

Then again, actually doing the show might be more hipster than not doing it.

    BERLIN, GERMANY - JULY 21: An attendee dances during the second annual Hipster Olympics on July 21, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. With events such as the 'Horn-Rimmed Glasses Throw,' 'Skinny Jeans Tug-O-War,' 'Vinyl Record Spinning Contest' and 'Cloth Tote Sack Race,' the Hipster Olympics both mocks and celebrates the Hipster subculture, which some critics claim could never be accurately defined and others that it never existed in the first place. The imprecise nature of determining what makes one a member means that the symptomatic elements of adherants to the group vary in each country, but the archetype of the version in Berlin, one of the more popular locations for those following its lifestyle, along with London and Brooklyn, includes a penchant for canvas tote bags, the carbonated yerba mate drink Club Mate, analogue film cameras, asymmetrical haircuts, 80s neon fashion, and, allegedly, a heavy dose of irony. To some in Berlin, members of the hipster 'movement' have replaced a former unwanted identity in gentrifying neighborhoods, the Yuppie, for targets of criticism, as landlords raise rents in the areas to which they relocate, particularly the up-and-coming neighborhood of Neukoelln.
