Casting Call for Short Film “Snuff” [New York, NY] #casting

Posted January 1, 2016

PLOT SUMMARY: Snuff is a horror comedy about all the intricacies and foibles of a snuff film crew. The crew themselves have killed tons of actresses for the sick pleasure of snuff film viewers, but this time they mistakenly kill the lead actress before they are finished shooting her scenes. The solution to their problem is a simple one: find a replacement actress. But where are they going to find another big boobed, blonde actress who wants to be in a movie? Easily enough they do find a replacement, but they get much more than they bargained for with her. After all, a film set can be a very dangerous place to be.

SEEKING TALENT
Gina – Female, 22-36 – lead, and reluctant assistant director to the power hungry and lazy director. Always the assistant, never the director, Gina has been bitterly running the shit show that is their crew for years. She’s strong, she’s snarky, and she’s going to become a director no matter the cost.

Brian – Male, 25-43 – The Director; he calls the shots, and David O. Russell has nothing on him when it comes to tantrums. An unsavory person in an unsavory career, but above all he wants the glory all tortured artists seek. It’s just in this case, Brian’s not the one getting tortured.

Serge – Male, 25-50 – slavic, leather pants garbed cinematographer; he carries around his light meter like Anne Hathaway carries around her Oscar.

Jimmy – Male, 20-35, Caucasian – The baby faced lead actor that stars in all of the snuff films the crew the produces; enthusiastic actor-cum-murderer, he’d do anything for more screen time.

Libby – Female, 18-30, Caucasian – from an outward appearance, Libby is the archetypal horror movie heroine: blonde and beautiful; but people aren’t always what they appear to be, and Libby is a cunning and ruthless adversary.
