Seeking actors & kitchen for staging cooking / dinner scene - local MN nonprofit

Date posted: May 13th, 2019

View More >

Our nonprofit is looking for a family (two parents and 1 child), or mother and child(ren) for a shoot we want to do on the morning of 5/30 (may require late arrival to school). Ideally this would take place in your dining room and kitchen. We want to film you cooking a meal and eating at the table (we would bring all necessary food items). 

 

We have a preference for Asian, Somali, Hispanic and african american actors. We typically create videos 1-2 times a year.

 

This would be a paid non-speaking role for approximately 2 – 2.5 hours of time in your kitchen and dining room. We would use this and integrate it into an overall video story around ending hunger here in MN. Take a look at an example from a recent video project - https://youtu.be/ci2H-8VxOkk

 

When contacting, please send photos of yourself + family, and your kitchen + dining room. Modest homes and apartments are what we are after.

 

thanks!

Estate of Affairs - Non-Union Feature

Date posted: May 13th, 2019

View More >

Estate of Affairs is a classic comedy of manners. It debuted at the Minnesota Fringe Festival 2018 where it was awarded the Venue Pick for the Ritz Theater. Estate of Affairs is written by Savanna D’Amico and is being adapted to film by award-winning filmmaker, Matt Eckholm.

In 1930s New England, a young Yale grad wants to run away with the man he loves. The only obstacle in the way of him following his bliss: his conservative parents need to believe he has found a bride before he can claim his large trust fund. He devises a plan to hire a call girl to pose as his wife at a formal dinner party at his parent’s Connecticut estate….but the night does not go according to plan. There are many secrets and lies at this Estate of Affairs.

 

Character Bios:

Beverly Cooley    [Age 40-55]

A formidable woman. She is from very old money and cares deeply about the traditions and manners that come from being a part of a high society family. Maintaining a respected public image is incredibly important to her.  She has long been hard of hearing from a bout of the mumps as a child.

Walt Cooley   [Age 20-25]

A handsome Yale graduate in his early 20s. He was born into privilege and carries a well-respected last name. Walt was raised in blue-blooded, wealthy family that has a high social status. Walt is burdened by the secret of his homosexuality in a time where being gay is illegal. 

Viney Duvray   [Age 20-25]

Grew up in a lower-class New Jersey family. Coming from a poor household, Viney learned to fight hard for the things that she wanted. She has always had the lofty aspiration to be a famous Hollywood starlet. In order to fund her dream, she has found work as an escort. Her tough attitude and voice do not match her soft feminine exterior.  She is beautiful though boisterous, small though mighty. 

Mortimer Cooley   [Age 40-55]

Born into a well-known aristocratic family and has always felt entitled to the finer things in life. He is indulgent and temperamental. Mortimer is in a loveless marriage with his wife, Beverly, whom he married after an arranged courtship by their parents. It is not beyond him to carry out extra-marital affairs. Mortimer is the father of Walt Cooley whom he does not particularly care about. Mr. Cooley is a downright scoundrel!

Joseph     [Age 40-55]

The butler at the Cooley Estate. He grew up in the house as he is the son of the former butler. Joseph is arguably Beverly Cooley’s best friend and closest ally. Naturally, Joseph does not like Mortimer Cooley, though he loves Walt Cooley like a son.

AUDITIONS THROUGHOUT JUNE 20-JULY 20, 2019

Please send materials/inquires to mhoeckner63@gmail.com

Special Notes: The screenplay was written as part of a narrative shorts lab run by FilmNorth (IFP) director Andrew Peterson and is funded through the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council’s (MRAC) ‘Next Step Fund.’ The film is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and peril. The actors are required to perform 1-2 stunts with the aid of a stunt coordinator. Actors must be MALE and between the ages of 14-16

PREMISE: After a day of exploring an industrial landscape, Jonas and Theo stumble upon an abandoned grain elevator. Theo persuades Jonas to climb to its roof with him, but Jonas’ desire to appear tough is put to the test when Theo challenges him with the most daunting dare yet: jump across the 8-story high elevator shaft.

Character Breakdowns

[THEO] CAUCAISAN no taller than 5’8’’, is a 15/16 year old thrill-seeker who is overly concerned with marking his masculinity. Theo is competitive, confident, and most of all, a daredevil. He welcomes dangerous situations and embraces them with a smile. He feels so untouchable that he has no problem pressuring/manipulating people around him to partake in those situations, even if they deem them as senseless. Like him or loathe him, at his core, he still has a good heart, it just takes a serious reality check to unveil his true self.

[JONAS] CAUCASIAN no taller than 5’8’’ and lanky, is a 14/15 year old who—unlike Theo—plays things safer. He’s just not much of a risk taker. He cares how others perceive him and he is most insecure about his inexperience with girls. He looks up to his more confident peers, especially those who can get girls easily. Though he aspires to be like them, he is reluctant about the means of getting to their level. Nevertheless, he is easily convinced if you hit him where it hurts.

MINNEAPOLICE

Date posted: Apr 4th, 2018

View More >

We are working on a project titled "MINNEAPOLICE". It is one of many steps that we are taking to bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement. All of our projects focus on bringing the action to the public eye. There are many productions going on around our great state but none are seen as we are driving through our communities. We want to change that. We feel if the action is taking place in public view, it does something wonderful and productive for the community, the state, the cast involved, and our local film industry. 

 
This particular project is purposely filled with action. It is about a SWAT team, which will project law enforcement as being human and not just how many in our society sees them. No matter which side you stand on, peace, understanding, cooperation and security is needed from both sides.
 
We have planned to shoot a promo for the movie. The promo will be a shootout between the SWAT team and one of the main characters on Broadway in Minneapolis. SWAT will be in full gear. The actors/actresses will be using blank guns. The idea is to be loud and dramatic to get the community's attention. This project has elements that no other has in this state and is very necessary. The story touches on gun control, school shootings, and again, bridging the gap.
 
We need stand-ins and extras to complete this exciting project. If you want to be a part of a growing legacy, by all means contact me. If you think you can help with your expertise, energy and knowledge please contact me.
