SEEKING TALENT
We are looking to fill 6 roles in a polished proof of concept for an action film we have in development. We will be shooting for 2 weeks in mid October in the Western NY region, so availability in that time period and ability to travel is crucial.

1 Asian male actor, able to portray the age range of late 50’s-early 70’s. Must be able to speak both English and either Cantonese (preferred), or Mandarin. Martial Arts ability preferred, but not a deal breaker as actor could be potentially doubled by a stuntman, depending on the difficulty in replicating said actor’s appearance. Those submitting for this role MUST attach a demo reel of their acting, monologues, etc.

6 Martial Arts/Stuntmen, any age 18+, with background in TRADITIONAL MARTIAL ARTS and stunt training (HIGH LEVEL Kung Fu is preferred, but all other traditional martial arts will be given consideration depending on practitioners demonstration of skill). Ethnicity and age are not important, as actor will be fully covered by a costume and mask. Those submitting for this role MUST attach a demo reel demonstrating their level proficiency.

PAY: Paid
OTHER: Meals, Snacks/Beverages
