Casting Call for Feature Film “Boo” [Charlotte, NC] #casting

IllFilmzLogo

Posted November 6, 2014

PROJECT TITLE: Boo
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
CATEGORY: Feature Film
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Illustrious Filmz
PRODUCTION COMPANY WEBSITE: illfilmz.net
SHOOTING LOCATION: Charlotte, NC

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Two(2) Late-Twenties males with athletic builds. Heights may range from 5’10”-6’3″

Multicultural backgrounds are encouraged. Sides may be requested 24 hours before casting via our contact page illfilmz.net with photo submission and contact info.

Marcel Batts is a twenty-something single man. He lives on the line between his criminal associations from a rough street upbringing and his role as father to his son with Profit. He is admittedly unsure of his future as a family man and still carries some very immature attitudes about family life. Marcel is handsome, passionate about his beliefs, and strong willed in such a way that when he loses his temper it is as if he becomes another person.

Lewis Nichols is statuesque and strikingly handsome with a charisma and appeal that most gravitate to. Though soft spoken, he is very determined and like Marcel when it comes to his quick fuse temper that can turn explosive at times.

Three(3) Late-Twenties females. Two with athletic builds and some modeling experience. Average height acceptable. Third role is open to interpretation. Multicultural backgrounds are encouraged. Sides may be requested 24 hours before casting via our contact page illfilmz.net with photo submission and contact info.

Profit Walker is a twenty-something single mother and natural beauty with brains to equal her looks. A product of a Catholic school education and a sternly sophisticated single mother upbringing, Profit has always been an overachiever, but balances her pedigree with her love for Marcel Batts, who is her street smart polar opposite. She believes love, family, and success can be had by anyone who sticks to a good plan, but often finds her plan pushed away at the thought of a handsome, bicep- strong knight in shining armor.

Mia Joyce is a twenty-something single woman with a love for all things upscale and no reservations about using her hourglass figure to obtain them. She is a diva by day and siren by night, who fills her time by shopping and spending the money of the many men who court her. Mia has been the evil twin to Profit’s good girl since they were young debutantes and pageant contestants.

Delancey Carter is a twenty-something single woman of moral standing and integrity. She was bred in the church and works hard to exhibit an image of virtuosity. Delancey is the stand alone positive influence in the office where she and Profit work, and makes no attempts to hide her faith amongst the short skirts and bad attitudes.

THE WRITER- (Age 25-35)

He’s our protagonist struggling with major writer’s block. He’s reminiscent of Joel Barish from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; more of thinker than a speaker. However, once you mention something he likes, it’s tough to shut him up. The writer is very pessimistic towards himself. This is often why he has trouble with writing. It’s a safe guess that he’s never really believed in himself.

THE BOY- (Age 9-13)

A boy who helps the writer with his writer’s block. The boy is very easy to talk to because he’s usually the one starting conversations.

Other roles, minor and extra will be cast
Extra roles include a couple and a middle aged man.
