Casting Call for Short Film “Politically Correct” [Lawrence, KS] #casting

PROJECT TITLE: Politically Correct
CLASSIFICATION: Student
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Short Film (5 minutes)
FORMAT: HD 16:9
PRODUCER: Savannah Rodgers
DIRECTOR: Savannah Rodgers
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: February 28, 2015
SHOOTING LOCATION: Lawrence, KS

SYNOPSIS:

A group of television writers try so hard to be politically correct that it impedes their process.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

[NAOMI] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-25]
Naomi is what you would expect from a Millennial: enthusiastic, quirky, and a little too green. By far the youngest in the writer’s room, Naomi is a classic hipster in the professional world.

[WHITE TYSON] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-35]
White Tyson is a white, of course. He’s still wearing the too casual cargo shorts/ t shirt combo even though it became inappropriate years ago. He’s a little out of touch though this doesn’t stop him from expressing his every thought.

[MIKE] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-40]
Mike is by far the most jaded writer in the group. A Latino man between 25 and 40, he is concerned about what other people think of him and the show.

[HAN] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Han is a handsome writer who treats his coworkers with kindness, even if they don’t always reciprocate. Searching for an Asian American man to fill the role.

[JERI] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Jeri is a shy and quiet writer, though not uninvolved. She stays away from confrontation as long as she can but quickly finds her (surprisingly loud) voice before the story is finished. Searching for an African American woman to fill the role.

[SHIRA] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Shira is booming with presence. She is the epitome of a strong career woman. She is gorgeous and fierce. She holds nothing back and believes herself to be current with the political issues discussed in the short, but finds herself arguing in circles with people who say otherwise. Searching for a non-white woman to fill the role.

Casting and Crew Call for Scene from “Whiplash” (2014) [Austin, TX] #casting #filmcrew

CLASSIFICATION: Student
STATUS: Non-Union

PRODUCTION COMPANY WEBSITE: http://vimeo.com/zacharypurcell
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: February 20–March 1
SHOOTING LOCATION: Austin, Texas

SYNOPSIS:

An in-depth filmed performance of one scene from the movie Whiplash (2014). It’s a great opportunity to flesh out the characters of the script in a thorough manner–taking the focus away from creating and planning an entire production and narrowing in on an in-depth performance of one scene. It’s a powerful moment in the movie and resonates emotionally even as a stand alone piece.

NOTE: This is not an attempt to remake the movie scene as closely as possible–rather an attempt accurately and emotionally bring the characters of the script to life. Preferably you have not seen the movie or even the trailer–we want to approach this with a fresh mindset!

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

[ ANDREW ][ MALE ][ AGE: 18-25 ]
Andrew is an eager and determined music student at Shaffer Music Conservatory in New York–one of the best in the world. He is willing to do whatever it takes to become the best Jazz drummer of his generation.

[ FLETCHER ][ MALE ][ AGE: 40-60 ]
An alpha male if there ever was one. Fletcher is a dominant and imposing character–unapologetic to anyone he offends on his quest to mentor the next great musician.

DP

Casting Call for Feature Film “Game On” [Tacoma, WA] #casting

Posted January 21, 2015

PROJECT TITLE: Game On
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Feature Film (120 minutes)
PRODUCERS: Phillip Sebal, Mary E Sekela
DIRECTORS: Shariya Lynn, Phillip Sebal
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Last Minute Studios
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Feb 23 – Mar 22, 2015
SHOOTING LOCATION: Tacoma, WA

SYNOPSIS:

Game On is a coming-of-age stoner comedy about a group of young adults struggling to understand what it means to “grow up” in the early 21st century. The story follows gamers (and “marijuana enthusiasts”) Regina, Mac, and Warren as they struggle to find a way to save the game store they operate, or else find themselves forced to abandon their alternative lifestyle and join the “real” world.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

REGINA HALLOWAY (GENDER: FEMALE) (AGE: 26)

Headstrong and independent, Regina has been friends with co-workers Warren and Mac since high school and is the only one of the three with ambition for anything other than gaming and smoking weed. She is smart, but a bit pretentious and argumentative. Still, her organization, management skills, and true love of the store are the only things keeping the doors of Game On open. Suffering a pseudo “quarter-life crisis,” she struggles with what her life has become and what it “could have been” if only she applied herself – her friendship with Ava serves as a constant reminder of her “failures.” Though her heart is always in the right place, she frequently goes on angry rants about her life and society as a whole, often taking her misplaced frustration out on virtual zombies and any noobs that dare challenge her.

*African-American actresses only. Must be able to play mid to late twenties.

WARREN BAILEY (GENDER: MALE) (AGE: 25)

The younger of two children and the only boy, Warren grew up spoiled and relatively neglected by his wealthy, workaholic parents. Refusing to go to college and get a “real job,” he convinced his businessman father to bankroll Game On so that he wouldn’t have to change his lifestyle. Always on the prowl for hot chicks, he smokes more weed than Seth Rogen and Snoop Dogg combined and spends the majority of his free time on FPS’s like Halo, Call of Duty, and Destiny – he considers his skills in these games his greatest accomplishments. He has no ambitions beyond smoking and gaming, content living off his trust fund for the rest of his life despite being capable of greater things.

*Caucasian actors only. Must be able to play mid to late twenties.

AVA NG (GENDER: FEMALE) (AGE: 26)

Ava is a driven, intellectual, and beautiful Asian American. She is an image of carefully constructed perfection, prone to internalizing problems for the sake of appearances. She has been told her entire life that she is “destined for success,” but she is a natural people pleaser and struggles with standing up to those she considers more important than herself. She has been attempting to work her way up the ranks of the New York fashion industry, but has become disillusioned by corporate assistant work. She recently suffered a serious panic attack, but hides this from her friends. She is the marketing strategist and an essential member of the Game On team, but not a habitual gamer or stoner. She is much more soft-spoken patient than her best friend Regina, but can hold her own when push comes to shove.

*Actresses of Asian decent only. Must be able to play mid to late 20s.

CORDELLE LEE (GENDER: MALE) (AGE: 30)

Burdened with taking care of his little sisters after his parents’ death, Cordelle supplements his meager freelance graphic designer income with selling weed on the side – his best clients are Mac and Warren, but his favorite client is Regina. Though a gay man with a white boyfriend, he is the epitome of masculine black “swagger,” always dressed to the nines and known for keeping his place immaculately decorated and clean. When he’s not playing doting father to his siblings, he can be found on sports games – Madden, Tiger Woods, FIFA, and the like – dominating whenever his hands touch a controller. When his favorite game store comes under threat of closing, he combines the graphic design skills from his “real world job” with his business knowhow and joins the Game On crew to help them shine.

*African-American actors only. Must be able to play late twenties/early thirties.

MR. BAILEY (GENDER: MALE) (AGE: 50s)

Warren Bailey Sr. is Warren’s hardworking and disapproving father. The founder of a Fortune 500 company, Mr. Bailey pulled himself up by his bootstraps at an early age and rose quickly to the top. He loves his son and has been willingly supporting him since birth, but is now tired of throwing money away on what he considers a bad investment. He believes that video games are for children and that Warren can do “better” if he puts his mind to it. He has a stony demeanor that hides a soft heart within, and genuinely wants what is best for his son and his friends.

*Caucasian actors only. Must be able to play 50s.

RODGER (GENDER: MALE) (AGE: 30)

A thirty-pushing-forty-year-old Gamestop store manager, Rodger is what many people would call “lame,” but he wears it well. He is a Guitar Hero junkie, the ultimate Star Wars fanboy, and unabashedly proud of both. He meets Regina at her birthday party, and isn’t shy about telling her that Game On could use some improvements.

*Any ethnicity may apply. Must be able to play early 30s.

BANK MANAGER (GENDER: FEMALE) (AGE: 40s)

The severe and unimpressed manager of the local bank where Warren, Mac, and Regina go seeking a loan to buy the Game On retail space. She disdains the trio and acts as the ultimate “evil” adult figure when she refuses to assist them with their financial difficulties, adding insult to injury by pointing out their obvious cluelessness.

*Any ethnicity may apply. Must be able to play 40s.

COMPENSATION: Low/Deferred (Not guaranteed)

Like Quentin, he wants nothing whatsoever to do with his family outside of his grandmother. When it comes to his employees, he does his best to do right by them. When it comes to a romantic relationship with women, he has no trouble whatsoever getting into their pants but doesn’t have (nor wants to have) the emotional concentration to sustain a relationship outside of the simple physical aspects. He would rather have a woman just be his friend or friend with benefits and intensely resists any kind of attempts to change his philosophy of the subject.

Personality: He is intensely sarcastic and blunt with generally everybody he encounters. He mistrusts everybody around him except, Quentin, and Anna. He does not care at all what people think about him and usually says exactly what is on his mind. The two people he does care about he is intensely protective of and will go to extreme lengths to correct whatever has been done wrong to them. Underneath his tough, hard, and manipulating exterior, he is very sentimental and mostly driven by emotion.

When you’re down on your luck and there is no one to run too, family is always there to make things work out. Whether you’re feuding or fighting, you still make everything alright. That’s where the Garrett family stands. Battling life’s obstacles and raising children on an average pay schedule will make you become stressed, loaded with agony, balled up with hatred and devious ways, and you lose hope sometimes, but with family by your side you have weight of the world lifted off of you.

Family Still Matters TV Series will deliver what other TV shows aren’t such as, love, compassion, discipline, education, and most of all the power of unity.

Tia Garrett and her husband Charles Garrett are not your ordinary family. They are average though. Charles Garrett loses his wife in a car accident and he felt like he was weighed down with with two children DaJohn and Jerome Garrett. He met a lady during a counseling meeting who helped him get through his battle of having a deceased wife and leaving him with two children to raise on his own.

Charles Garrett found a young lady by the name of Tia Garrett, a middle aged Caucasian lady who had a daughter named Samantha. They challenged a lot of hatred and envious controversy being that he met and re-married a caucasian lady.

One thing you cannot stop is a family that prays together, because when you pray together you stay together.
