Casting Call for Short Film “The Stupid Frenchman” [New York, NY] #casting

Posted October 3, 2013

PROJECT TITLE: The Stupid Frenchman
CLASSIFICATION: Student
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Short Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Director reel
PRODUCER: Nathaniel West
WRITERS: Anya Easkra, Nathaniel West
DIRECTOR: Anya Easkra
SHOOTING LOCATION: New York, NY

SYNOPSIS:

Student short comedy.
A modern variation of Anton Chekhov’s “The Stupid Frenchman” – a sensitive man’s inner monologue, as he observes his hefty restaurant neighbor gobble down multiple plates of food, that comes to an absurd and comical conclusion.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

1. The Sensitive Frenchman:
Male, Caucasian, 23-40 y/o
Thin, flexible and expressive body
Used to constant pleasantries, the Frenchman is sensitive to extremities. Utterly pompous and over-the-top, his communication and reactions are very physical – he “talks” with his body, making expressive gestures with exaggerated manners.

2. The Hefty Glutton:
Male, Caucasian, 30-50 y/o
Full-bodied (think John Goodman) aristocrat
Contrary to the name, the Glutton isn’t disgusting and doesn’t have an eating problem (or so he thinks). He looks clean, wears expensive clothing, has a stylish cut and, in general, is a very well put together gentleman. Authoritative and straight forward, he is simply having the first meal of his day, which is a little later than usual – the man is hungry.

3. Waiter (background)
Male, 20-40 y/o
Lean, with great posture
He is the perfect waiter, skillful in reading the wants of the customer and always ready to serve a high class consumer.

COMPENSATION: Non-paid
OTHER COMPENSATION: Film credit, DVD copy, Meals, Snacks/beverages

Casting Call for Short Films [Boston, MA] #casting

Posted June 24, 2013

PROJECT TITLE: Untitled
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Short Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Director reel
SHOOTING LOCATION: Boston, MA

SYNOPSIS:

Seeking actors open to working collaboratively with a Boston-based filmmaker on the development of characters for a series of short films.

Union and non-union actors of all ages and types are invited to attend initial screen tests in early July. I will provide some material for audition, discussion, and improvisation–actors are also welcome, though not required, to prepare a brief audition piece of their own.

If selected, actors will be needed for ongoing workshop sessions throughout July and early August, and will be featured in one or more short films based on shooting scripts that emerge from these workshops.

An excellent opportunity for actors looking to explore their ranges and experiment with techniques of acting for the camera. Possible styles/genres may include high comedy, psychological suspense, poetic realism, and magic realism.

Actors will receive credit and material for their reels; though there is no budget for compensation, I am interested in building long-term partnerships with actors and may be able to provide compensation for future projects.

Please reply with a resume and head shot.

This is the story of Akio Takahashi, a Japanese World War II veteran who lives his life in solitude and emptiness. After years of isolation, he is forced to address past problems in a new world. Circle of the Sun is a story based in fact. At the end of World War II, Japanese soldiers stationed in the Philippine Islands were unaware that the war was over. They were informed that they would be told when the war was over, and that they should not reveal themselves until the Japanese army came for them.
