Casting / Crew / Location Call for Feature Film “Shoes” [Columbia, MO] #casting #crewcall #locationcall

background2

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.

Script Link: http://www.stage32.com/sites/stage32.com/files/assets/screenplay/23215/screenplay_23215.pdf

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

DOMENICK LOMBARDI
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Age: 23-26
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Domenick is the son of moderately known mobster, Sal Lombardi. His relationship with his father is mostly about pleasing Sal and doing whatever his father wishes him to do. Sal’s constant strain upon him is the main driving force between Dom’s alcoholism and sexual compulsion.

Personality: Dom is a lost soul. He doesn’t have any aspirations or dreams outside of the fact that he wants to be free of his father’s control over his life. Because of Sal’s dominion over him, he was never allowed to develop his own interests other than women and liquor. His hedonism always goes into overdrive when he feels stressed or suffocated. Sometimes he can be overconfident, which doesn’t do anything but make him look stupid in the end.

QUENTIN REYNOLDS
Ethnicity: African American
Age: 23-26
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Quentin is a drug dealer whose older brother, Jerome, is a cop. He lives with his brother but prefers to have as little contact as possible with him. He considers his best friend, Ray, more of a family member than his own brother.

Personality: Quentin is quiet and modest most of the time, but can be condescending smart ass when he comes across stupidity or when he feels his intelligence is being insulted. Unlike Domenick, he is a leader not a follower. He is the most intellectual and when push comes to shove can be manipulating.

RAYMOND MURAMOTO
Ethnicity: Asian American
Age: 23-26
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Ray is a pimp. A trade he took after his grandmother, Anna, retired from being a madam. His grandmother was the only person in his life he actually cared about until he was nine and met his best friend, Quentin Reynolds. 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.

ARIANNA LOMBARDI
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Age: 23-26
Height: 5’7 – 6’0

Arianna is Dom’s wife. She has little respect for her husband and just about as much respect for her marriage vows. Like Dom, she messes around as well and does not nor never cared if her husband does the same. She was forced into marrying Dom and liked him even less when she discovered that he was an alcoholic. She is the only person that can basically stand up to Sal.

Personality: Arianna is very cultured, she loves to read and listens to opera and classical music. She can be very selfish, blasé, and cold and makes it obvious that she is not gonna conform to the stereotypical wifely role that Sal wants her to be for his son.

VINCENT LOMBARDI
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Age: 47-54
Height: 5’9 – 6’2

Vincent is his Sal’s younger brother and wing man. Generally, he gets verbally and sometimes physically abused by his brother due to his somewhat innocent cluelessness. He looks up to his brother and does his best to try to please him, even though most of the time he messes it up.

Personality: Vincent is not book smart and oblivious, but enjoys cooking and baking and collecting recipes. Unlike his brother, he has other interests outside the realm of being a gangster.

BOYD O’CONNOR
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Age: 28-33
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Boyd is a detective for the police department and is working partners with Quentin’s brother, Jerome. He comes from a military background, since his father and uncle were both involved in the Gulf War. He tried joining the military himself, but wasn’t able due to his less than perfect eyesight.

Personality: Boyd has no problem whatsoever saying things that are out of turn. When it comes to his goals he’ll destroy anybody that gets in his way, regardless of whom they are. He gets plenty of women but is still is a bit of misogynist, treating his conquests like trash. An amoral individual, he has no problem doing things that aren’t looked upon favorably just so long as it benefits himself.

JEROME REYNOLDS
Ethnicity: African American
Age: 28-33
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Jerome is a detective for the police department is partners with Boyd O’Connor. Him and his younger brother, Quentin’s relationship is practically on the edge of nonexistent even though they live together. Jerome is selfish, has no problem blaming other people for his own mistakes, and when push comes to shove a raging coward. In his brother’s eyes, he is seen as being pitiful and worthless.

Personality: He enjoys being in a position of authority and abusing it to his own advantage. Though he does possess these qualities, he doesn’t have the brains to be able to successfully benefit from it. He thinks too highly of himself and refuses to deal with his own idiocy when confronted.

What’s happening here is Mama is (somewhere, to be determined) talking to the audience.

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.

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.

SYNOPSIS:

Have or ever had a job you loath? It’s another summer for a nameless manager of a swim club in upper middle class suburbia. The movie begins with this person getting called into work on their day off (Smith, “Clerks” ). The manager encounters lazy employees, nasty children, and a multitude of other rambunctious characters. Throughout the movie the manager notices people over look and not fully appreciate what they have. The manager meanders through life curiously upbeat minus the occasional rant reminiscent of a Holden Caulfield (Sallinger. “The Catcher and the Rye”). And despite being indifferent to many aspects of classic hollywood style productions the manager begins drafting a narrative to reach the public on such issues. The manager attempts to rid the work of authorship and profit as an “independent film” but quickly learns as to the difficulty of the task at hand.

Cast/Crew/Location Calls for Short Film “Flesh Computer” [Los Angeles] #casting #crewcall #locationcall

lesh_computer_sketch_4color

Posted April 27, 2013

PROJECT TITLE: Flesh Computer
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: SAG
CATEGORY: Short Film
DIRECTOR: Ethan Shaftel
PRODUCTION COMPANY: easyAction
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: June 6-9 2013
SHOOTING LOCATION: Los Angeles

SYNOPSIS:

We are a team of industry professionals shooting a passion project: a visually stylized and intellectually mind-bending short film, set in a dark future populated by organic machines. Very high production value with award winning production-design team, cinematographer, and visual effects. Already partially cast with some amazing performers, we are seeking a few additional actors to bring the world to life! (Not a huge paycheck but a very high quality cinema piece for your portfolio, and a short shooting schedule)

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

SKINNY – MALE, 13-30 years old — Mean, like a mongrel dog is mean. Kicked down his whole life; fed scraps, if at all. Now Skinny is MAD. Looking to kick someone else down for a change. Looking for power, looking for a moment of control. Cruel by nature and stick thin; bad skin, bad teeth, bad hair, BAD EVERYTHING. If this sounds like you, then I’m scared! But if this sounds like a role you could play, then please apply!

CHUNKY – MALE, 13-30 years old — Chunky peers out at life through beady pig-eyes filled with mistrust and suppressed hurt. If he sees a cat get hit by a car, he laughs and snorts with glee, because that animal got what it deserved, what EVERYONE deserves. If a neighbor’s house burns down, Chunky is over the moon, gloating; his black heart joyful. Chunky stuffs his face, picks on the weak, and toadies to his tougher friend Skinny. If this sounds like you, then you are a disgusting human animal, but if this sounds like a role you could play, then PLEASE APPLY!

EMILY — FEMALE, 6-14 years old — Emily is curiosity itself, head craned back to watch the stars one minute, crawling in the dirt the next minute to see what the worms are doing. She’s a true innocent in a dangerous world, observing life she doesn’t understand. Our young actress must be comfortable in contacts, as she will be required to wear a standard colored contact in one eye for visual effects work (In the final film, Emily will appear to have one artificial eye that glows in the dark).

MATTHEW — MALE, 40-60 years old — Matthew is Emily’s father, and though he is a fascinating person while awake, in this film he is only ever seen fast asleep on the couch, snoring loudly and lost in his dreams, and unaware of the drama unfolding around him. Looking for a mature, unique face, years of history, deep lines. A large, solid, heavyset man, a father to depend on.

Production Designer — science fiction experience a plus

Creepy Basement — large cement area, pipes and ducts a plus

Casting/Crew/Location Calls for Independent Feature Film “A Murder Most Cold” [Delaware/Maryland] #casting #crewcall #locationcall

PROJECT TITLE: A Murder Most Cold
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Feature Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Festival Circuit
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Mid October-Mid November
SHOOTING LOCATION: Newark DE, Wilimington DE, Elkton MD

SYNOPSIS:

“A Murder Most Cold” is set in a all too near future where androids work side by side with humans. One of these androids has been raped and murdered, but the killers have gone free, and now a fellow android is out to avenge the death of her “sister.” She hires a hit man to help her track down the thugs but as the journey goes on it becomes clear that her hired gun is less human than she is and perhaps even as twisted as the killers they’re hunting.

The film will be shot in black and white, film-noir style. While there will be lots of action and suspense the plan is to try and create a 50s B-Movie atmosphere so as to focus on the story, characters and ideas rather than get caught up with special effects. Several parts have already been cast and shooting will begin mid October in the Newark and Wilmington DE area. The film will be shot entirely with Canon DSLRS (T2i, T3i and 60D).

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Floyd: Male, 30s-60s. A hit man with no soul.

Niles: Male, 30s-60s. A detective battling his conscience.
