I’m currently casting for a ten-minute short film, based on my original short story, I Am Chaos. The story is about a young girl named Anna who goes with her older sister to a party at the nearby lake, where an evil spirit is said to lurk. Listed below are the lead roles, however, the film requires around 15 extras. It’s preferred that the actors live close to Tucson, AZ or the surrounding areas, but if you have your own transportation, all areas are welcome. I am mostly looking for teens, but age is not that big of a deal. If you can look and behave like the specified age, you will be considered.
