Bonjour, we are looking for four actresses.
Project: feature film in French and American.
As the film is made with a tiny budget, we unfortunately can not pay anyone (!)
All we can put forward is the strength of the artistic and emotional drive that animates this project.
For now, everyone has said yes. So we were able to obtain the participation of some professional actors (like Gary Dourdan already shoot).
The approach of the film is both dreamlike and concrete (perhaps comparable to Mullholand Drive by David Lynch).
In a few words: the ghost plane of St Exupéry flies over a mysterious Corsican beach; He wants to go back to New York where he left his lover Sylvia and his manuscript.
So we are looking for four young girls (around 20-25 old).
They embody the positive American youth of today with all the beautiful ethical issues.
In the film, they are four actresses (they play something like their own role) who together want to write and make a film about Saint Exupéry and Sylvia Hamilton with the music of David Bowie.
They are inventive, crazy, energic, romantic, passionate.
Then they will disturb all Manhattan to support their project.
The result will be funny and moving.
For us, it is important that everyone keeps this adventure a beautiful and strong memory.
Filming is scheduled between May 22-30.
If you think you might be interested, do not hesitate to ask as many questions as you want.
We are serious, professional, and have led several artistic projects before this one.
By advance, Thank you!
