Casting and Crew Call for Comedy Horror Feature “Night of the Living Dong” [Chicago, IL] #casting #crewcall

NOTLD Poster

Posted September 16, 2014

PROJECT TITLE: Night of the Living Dong
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Feature Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Streaming/DVD
SHOOTING LOCATION: TBD (Likely Chicago, IL)

SYNOPSIS:

Comedy-horror feature seeks two actors for lead roles – think “Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil.” Although the film will not begin production for 6 to 9 months, the actors are expected to participate in radio and media interviews, flash mob events, possibly on stage, and for other promotional appearances in character.

The feature film is titled “Night of the Living Dong.” A dildo possessed by Hitler’s soul wreaks havoc in a small Nebraskan sex shop. Todd and Micah, down on their luck, decide to get jobs at a local sex shop. Distracted by their apathy and fake boobs, a rambunctious evil lurks in their shadows unbeknownst to them. Todd and Micah with the help of a stripper, the Israeli secret service, an archeologist, and a plethora of sex toys will have to come together to defeat this evil once and for all.

CASTING THESE ROLES:

Todd is Jewish American, handsome, poorly groomed, poor hygiene, yet displays a sense of masculinity that makes the ladies swoon. He’s in fair shape with a small beer belly. Nice clothing, unkempt and unshaven. He’s outgoing and manipulative, the life of the party until he drinks too much and makes an ass of himself. He’s a bit of a perverted Casanova always on the lookout for a woman as sexually liberated as he. Todd never misses an opportunity to exploit his heritage. He sees himself as the unspoken leader of his and Micah’s twosome. Todd always wanted to achieve greatness and leave his mark on society, but he lacks self‐discipline and follow through.

Micah was raised solely by mother, whom he saw very little of because she worked multiple jobs. With no friends at school, Micah grew up spending much of his time in front of the television watching old VHS copies of Bollywood films. To make up for her absence mother spoiled him at every opportunity, ultimately making him into the man-child he is today. He made his first friend at 14 when he met Todd outside a grocery store selling marijuana stolen from his brother. They got high and feasted on day old donuts from a dumpster behind the store. They’ve been best friends ever since. Micah lives in the moment never hoping for very much — and his goals generally involve his next meal.

Posted May 20, 2014

PROJECT TITLE: Shoes (Untitled)
CLASSIFICATION: Student
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Feature Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Festival circuit
PRODUCERS: Harleigh Wacker, Morrow Dothage
WRITER: Jaden Messner
DIRECTOR: Harleigh Wacker
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Prince Honey Studio
PRODUCTION COMPANY WEBSITE: http://www.princehoneystudio.wix.com/enter
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Late July/Early August 2014
SHOOTING LOCATION: Denver, CO

LOGLINE:

The story follows 6 main characters as they are in high-school. Some of them are bullies, some are victims, and others are by-standers. The story pushes the stance of not being a silent by-stander and standing up for yourself.

CASTING THESE ROLES:

Jax: (1)
Role- Main character, Victim of physical bullying
Home Life- He lives at home with his supportive, loving, mother, Adrian (30s). He has a dead-beat father who is not around anymore and who never even married his mother. Jax lives in a low income household, so he doesn’t have many of the luxuries most kids are used to.
Personality- Jax is a loveable dork. He isn’t a typical nerd, but he is slightly socially awkward, quirky and he’s an introvert, so he doesn’t make an effort to talk to people if something doesn’t need to be said. He is, however, honest and intelligent, and when he opens up, has a good sense of humor. But since he isn’t very imposing, he is the target of lots of bullying, and since he has few friends to support him, he suffers alone through much of this torment.
Appearance-
Sophomore, 16 years old
Scrawny-Average build
Caucasian
Messy hair

Dani: (2)
Role- Main Character, Verbal Bully and Cyber Bully, Abuse Victim
Home Life- She lives with both parents, however, her mother, Maria (40s), is a workaholic and is rarely home. Dani craves attention from her mother, and wishes to outshine her two older sisters, Emilee (20) and Sara (22, who are both in college). Her father, Scott (40s) is pretty average and caring, but he’s oblivious to her actions at school. Her boyfriend, Sawyer, is good-looking and popular, but he’s also cruel and abusive to her, she stays with him for the purpose of appearances and because she’s too scared to break things off.
Personality- Dani is outgoing, but she has self-confidence issues. She wants to be in control of her life and the people in it, she’s stubborn and can be mean-spirited, though she’s not cliche evil. She keeps up a facade of perfection, good grades, popular boyfriend, but she has troubles just like anyone else.
Appearance-
Junior, 17 years old
Average-tall in height
Thin build
Overall preppy appearance, race is inconsequential

Aaron: (3)
Role- Main Character, Bystander
Home Life- Aaron is basically an average guy. His family is upper-middle class, his parents are still married, loving and supportive (John and Sabrina, late 30s, early 40s). He has a little brother, Nick (12) and a dog (to be determined later). He has a job to help pay for things he wants, but he always has what he needs.
Personality- Aaron is, again, pretty average. He does have a passion for football and he is a nice guy, he wants to do the right thing, but he doesn’t always have the courage to do it.He gets pretty good grades in school, doesn’t make trouble, and he’s got a sense of humor. He’s a bit of a goody-two-shoes. He has the intentions and the urge to defend the weak, but the story is about him getting the balls to do it.
Appearance-
Junior, 17 years old
Average-tall in height
Average-Slightly muscular build, not crazy buff
He’s pretty clean-cut, his hair doesn’t have to be short, but he’s well-put-together
Most likely Caucasian, but this not a requirement

Ava: (4)
Role- Main Character, Victim of Relational and Cyber Bullying
Home Life- Ava is new in town, and her parents recently went through a messy divorce. She’s staying with her father, Mike (early 40s), who is good-natured but not used to raising Ava and her little brother Finn (14) by himself, so Ava has to do lots of the cooking and motherly tasks. She was involved in a scandal at school which convinced Dani that Sawyer had cheated with her, so she gets relentlessly tormented via social media and rumors that ruin her reputation, even though this story isn’t true.
Personality- Ava is generally inclined to be outgoing, but the whole mess with Dani makes her stressed and paranoid, and her usual good humor isn’t evident unless she’s with friends. She gets a little beaten down over the course of the film, starting out with high hopes only to have them crash and slowly recover.
Appearance-
Junior- 16 years old (later birthday)
Thin-Average build
She’s stylish, but not extravagant
race is inconsequential

Jett: (5)
Role- Main Character, Physical Bully
Home Life- Jett’s home life is, to put it plainly, crappy. His parents are together, but they often violently argue, and abuse him and his younger sister, Georgie (9). Jett practically raises Georgie on his own, and he’s a good brother, despite everything he goes through and puts others through. He doesn’t like to be home, so he stays away from it as much as possible, preferably with Georgie.
Personality- Jett, at his core, is a good guy. But he has a quick temper, lots of stress and his outlet is beating people up. He wants to have as much power as he can in his life, since his parents make him feel small and inconsequential. He is ashamed of his actions for Georgie’s sake, but he doesn’t change his ways easily. He’s a bit of a Social Darwainist, and deludes himself into moralizing his actions.
Appearance-
Senior- 17 years old (he can’t wait to turn 18 and leave, but he has a late birthday)
Tall and bulky (as in muscular)
He is, in a word, menacing.
Caucasian (though this might be negotiable)

Maya: (6)
Role- Main Character, Victim of Verbal Bullying
Home Life- Maya comes from the type of family that’s very organic. They’re probably vegan, environmentally friendly, virtuous and they’re very kind and supportive. She has an older brother in college (in the Peace Corps), and a younger sister, Kaylee (12). Her family is pretty well-off.
Personality- Maya just doesn’t give a hoot about what you think (had to quote Weezer). At least, that’s what she wants people to think. She’s honest and straightforward. She doesn’t care about clothes, makeup or fashion trends, she listens to an odd assortment of musical artists, and she’s an artsy person herself, always experimenting. She’s outgoing and in-your-face, but the verbal bullying from Dani and her crew really gets to her for some reason. However, Maya is also the most likely to stand up for another person, and her growth in the film is living up to what she claims to be.
Appearance-
Junior- 17 years old
Maya’s appearance is probably the least specific. She could be any race, build or height. She just needs a natural air about her, an honest quality. As long as she exudes this quality, it doesn’t matter what she looks like.

SHOOTING LOCATION: Denver, CO

LOGLINE:

When best friends, Charlie and Myles, graduate high school, their lives take very different paths. Charlie is driven to move out of his adoptive home and get a job to support himself, but Myles is stuck in the past; the past when Charlie and Myles would unleash all of their anger at their world by boxing each other. Now, the popularity of their ‘secret group’ has spread throughout the community and it seems like every kid in the neighborhood is involved. When Charlie breaks off to take his day job more seriously, and Myles finds out Charlie has stolen the girl of his dreams, a wedge forms between the two friends. It grows until they are rivals. Meanwhile, Charlie moves in next door to a young boy, Brett, whose father roughs him up on a regular basis in order to try to make him tough. Brett is a sweet, gentle young boy who does well in school but his father doesn’t understand why he doesn’t do “normal boy things” like fight. Charlie begins to teach Brett how to box while becoming a big brother figure to him. But when his friendship-turned-rivalry explodes, Charlie enters Brett prematurely into a boxing match against Myles’ biggest kid. When Brett wins the fight, he finally wins the respect of his father; the thing he has desired all along. Learning that fighting is the only way to gain his father’s respect and attention, Brett hardens himself. When his father drunkenly demands he hit his mother, he does it so he doesn’t lose his father’s attention. And thus, the cycle of violence continues.

CASTING THESE ROLES:

Lizzie- 19 years old, feisty, one of the boys, naturally beautiful, speaks her mind, a constant “balance” for Myles and Charlie as they’ve grown up, motivated, feels “stuck” in her small town

Miles- 19/20 years old, recent high school graduate, lives with his grandmother after his mom left when he was 16, his father died when he was in third grade (he watched him die and it’s the secret he’s carried with him all his life, only Lizzie knows this), ridiculously in love with Lizzie and always has been, best friends with Charlie, hot-tempered, spontaneous, lazy and unmotivated, job-less, living in the past

Charlie- 19 years old, recent high school graduate, lived with foster parents until he was 18, has his own place now, hardworking, motivated, frustrated with Myles’ laziness which is tearing their friendship apart, passionate about designing cars, protective, emotional, caring, looking ahead and has goals (which Lizzie is attracted to)

John- 29 years old, young father, reckless, tough guy, used to be the “bad boy” in school, fighter, doesn’t understand how to talk to his son, is rough with his son because he wants him to be tough, thinks his son is too weak, alcoholic, bored

Susan- 27 years old, young mother, depressed, loves her son but doesn’t know how to protect him against his father, timid, tired, full of regret, proud of her son because he does well in school and she believes he will make something of himself so he’s her only hope left as long as he doesn’t turn into his father…

Brett- 11 years old (ALREADY CAST)

CASTING AGENT: Ranette McDonald
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Summer 2014 – Spring 2015
SHOOTING LOCATION: Shreveport, Louisiana

SYNOPSIS:

SHORT PROJECT DESCRIPTION: “Anthem For Doomed Youth” is a riveting and heartbreaking story about love, anger, madness, and murder. Two high school students Mattie Lovejoy and Dillon Holloway are in an unhealthy relationship that’s always chaotic. When a new kid in town named Sean Shaffer enters their lives, things begin to take a more darker turn, especially for Mattie. Inspired by true crime events, The miniseries goes deeply in depth on the minds of teenagers and their severe angst that paints a melancholic picture of being a teenager.

LOG LINE: A volatile Teenager (Played by Ladarius McDonald) and three other Teens commit a murderous crime that shocked the nation.

MAIN PROJECT DESCRIPTION: “Anthem For Doomed Youth” is a 12-part TV Drama Miniseries. The Miniseries is written and directed by newcomer Ladarius McDonald (who also stars in the Miniseries as main Character Matthew “Mattie” Lovejoy). It’s a tragic Coming-Of-Age Story about the troubled life of Matthew “Mattie” Lovejoy (Played by Ladarius McDonald), An angry and disturbed Teenager. Mattie grew up in a abusive home throughout his childhood by his violent and manipulative father and because of the upbringing, Mattie would occasionally act erratic, angry, and depressed. During his summer vacation, Mattie meets Dillon Holloway, who is the new athletic kid in town and also the same age as Mattie and they both quickly fell in love.

Mattie and Dillon were inseparable and couldn’t take their eyes off of each other. Their relationship often hits rock bottom on several occasions when their relationship turns violent because of their involvement of drugs, and many, many craziness, but through most of their hard times they still love each other. Meanwhile, during the events of Mattie and Dillon’s troubled relationship, a subplot of the miniseries focuses on Larry Hackett, who is a 15-year-old Teenager (Ages 16-20 in later episodes) with twice the troubled life than Mattie. Larry grew up in a fundamental family because his father is an abusive Pentecostal and his Mother is very neglectful about the complicated situations around the household. Larry is obsessed over the dark themes of vampirism, satanism, and the occult (which brings out the dark side of his personality). Other subplots includes Larry’s other two Friends Anthony Lawson and Bobby Ripley, who are two 14-year-olds (Ages 15-19 in later episodes) with troubled lives. Anthony grew up in an abusive home throughout his Childhood, which left him severely and emotionally damaged. Bobby also grew up in a abusive home throughout his Childhood and as a result Bobby became very rebellious and narcissistic. All three Friends’ personal lives are viewed through every dark and disturbing details as the episodes of the Miniseries progresses.

While Larry, Anthony, and Bobby’s personal lives are being viewed, Mattie’s relationship with Dillon slowly began to deteriorate due to their constant violent fights and arguments and, although their relationship never officially ended, Dillon meets a 15-year-old Boy named Sean Shaffer (16-years-old in later episodes), who recently moves in with his father Hunter, his step mother, and his step siblings after two years of living with his divorced mother Bethany. Their meeting wasn’t a good one because both of them were in a fight at school and got detention. While in detention, Dillon apologizes to Sean and they both made amends and became Friends. Soon Dillon slowly begins to fall in love with Sean and both of them began to write letters to each other that implied strong affections.

When Dillon courted Sean into a relationship, it caused Sean’s parents to feel uncomfortable about the thought because they would learn later on that Dillon is a troublemaker. During this time, While both lovers are on hiatus, Mattie began dating another boy named Aaron, who is Dillon’s football teammate. The relationship soon faded and Mattie soon focuses more on his attention towards Dillon, even though Mattie was unaware that Dillon was on the verge of breaking up with him to be with Sean. When Mattie found out about Dillon’s thoughts on that,
he made several violent threats towards Sean to stay away from Dillon or else. From that point on, Mattie began to act possessive towards Dillon, Mattie hangs out with him more often with his friends, constantly calling him, and frequently writes him letters to keep Sean away or else Mattie would kill him.

After months and months of numerous threats, harassments, and violent confrontations, Sean severed all ties with Dillon and Dillon never reformed his relationship with Mattie. Dillon’s romantic need for Sean drove Mattie into extreme insanity and anger and he soon enlisted Larry Hackett, whom Mattie met from various friends, and Mattie came up with the idea of murdering Sean so that Dillon could forget about Sean and focuses more on him. Larry also enlisted his two best friends Anthony Lawson and Bobby Ripley into joining him and Mattie’s plan into murdering Sean. Mattie’s disturbing plan of murdering Sean eventually succeeded, but resulted in more than what he had bargained for.

She is a mother and very serious about that role, she owns a bookstore, she has a sense of humor, a little dry but funny, she is very nurturing to all. She is not a Madea but maybe her calm, smart, classy sister. Here is a link to her background and some strips. http://jerrycraft.net/mamasboyz.html

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Tyrell
Tyrell is my oldest son, he’s 18 years old. Some would say he’s kind of shy. He is a senior in high school. I think he wants a girlfriend.

Yusef
Yusef is my 16 year old. I hate say it but he is more popular and more athletic and taller than his brother Tyrell. He loves sneakers and clothes. He’s pretty popular with the girls. It may seem he’s more independent than his older brother, but Tyrell is his best bud.

Grandpa
My father lives upstairs. He’s a retired chef. He likes to cook and listen to Jazz. I keep telling him he needs to change the way he cooks, like doing less frying and more baking. I’m working on it.

Uncle Gregg
Gregory Tisdale is my baby brother. The kids call him Uncle Greggo. He is 32 years old. He likes music, movies and video games as much as my sons, so of course he gets along well with Yusef and Tyrell. He owns a computer graphics and consulting company. I say he’s afraid of commitment and he’s cheap.

Keisha
Keisha helps me out in the bookstore, when she’s not in school. Keisha is the daughter that I never had. She is 18 years old like Tyrell. Keisha actually dated Tyrell for a very short time, but now they are just great friends. (Keisha strip coming soon)

Sara
Sara goes to school with Tyrell and Yusef. She’s a fashionista. She tells me she likes to take here moms old clothes and make them stylish, she calls it a retro look.. I believe she has a crush on Tyrell.

Sam
Sam goes to school with my sons. He loves baseball. He knows every stat about every team. He’s a walking database, well at least in the things he wants to be.

The project is called Blood Red and it is envisioned as a straightforward giallo, like Dario Argento’s Deep Red or Tenebre. (An over-serious throwback to early 80s slasher movies with an unearned excess of stylistic flourishes and not a hint of the post-modern self-referential hipness of something like Scream). We will be shooting two self-contained scenes of a horror movie, an opening prologue and a flashback that reveals the origin of the movie’s antagonist.

These two scenes will be included with business plan and script to present to investors. Also, they will be submitted to festivals to publicize the film for future production and release. Additionally they will be included in the final cut of the film. There is nudity and violence.

CREW POSITIONS NEEDED:

1. Production assistant – a general overall production assistant, help with moving equipment, wrangling props, helping set up and breakdown location, wrangling actors, being available whenever crew needs assistance. Being available for Director, AD and Producer.

2. Camera assistant – to be available for the Director of Photography for whatever he may need. Should be able to run camera, pull focus, assist with dolly, jib arm, etc. We will be shooting RAW on Canon 5D Mark II using Magic Lantern Firmware and a VAF anti-aliasing filter and using CinemaRAW in post. We have a Juiced Slider (4, 6, 8 foot rails), platform dolly, and small jib.

3. Assistant Grip – to be able to move, set up lights and breakdown lights based on what Director of Photography and Grip need. We will be using some Lowell halogens (2 Totas, 2 Omnis, 3 Pros, a Rifa Box 44 and a Rifa Box 55), three softboxes with CFLs and three small but potent dimmable LED 160s.
