Feature Casting ages 18-26, paid

Date posted: May 15th, 2017

View More >

We're casting main roles ages 18-28 for my new feature film that follows a group of millennials that go on a downward spiral of anarchic mayhem. No older roles casting yet. Pay is $100-$400+ and day commitments are 5-20 days this June-August with additional pickups in the future. 
 
This is being shot unconventionally and in some unusual places. The heart of the film is the characters and relationships between them. The content of the film includes characters rebelling against a society they perceive to be unfair, graphic violence, language, some sexuality, and dark/satirical humor so if you’re offended by controversial things this isn’t the project for you.
 
Trailers to my previous teenage works, one of which has received alot of positive critic reviews and distribution are below. This new film is worlds ahead in terms of production quality and craft.
 
 
Since most people in this age group have erratic schedules we’re going with video auditions. You don’t have to be in the age range, but must look the part. If I don't specify ethnicity then it's open to whichever. Just shoot me an email at ueprod@gmail.com with which character(s) you’re interested in, any questions you have, and I’ll send you some sides and any info you need. You can record yourself with whatever you want and send them back then we’ll go from there with more direction! We would like all videos in by Wednesday May 17th, but will still accept them later. Send them in as soon as possible if you want to be in this.
 
Ilisha (female, 19-25) - Has been homeless her entire adult life, little to no ego and doesn’t look at or face herself as a coping mechanism. A decent amount selflessly empathetic with a good sense of judgement and a hardened realistic view on life.
 
Mason (male, 19-21, dark-skinned) - Academically successful, “innocent", introverted, regretfully inexperienced in things his peers are and somewhat disappointed at being straight-laced. Has a good sense of morality and considers others when making decisions.
 
Brenden (male, 20-25, European ancestry) - Charismatic and fun, calculatingly decisive, internally careful and increasingly unpredictable. Loves stirring the pot of choas and is restless when bored. Notices many things about people and situations that others don’t and begins to manipulate to his advantage.
 
Tino (male, 20-25)  - Has good intentions. Is without many unique qualitites but is confident in himself. Sarcastic, rowdy but balanced, loyal to his friends. He doesn’t want to be dis-valued and is self-conscious of being labeled an idiot.
 
Anna (female, 19-25) - Tough on the outside and deceitful on the inside, fun seeking, strong willed, a touch of selfishness and narcissism. She doesn’t compromise on behalf of others.
 
Jayce (male, 23-28) - Narcissistic liar and selfish. With exaggeration he poses most of his qualities and self-professes to be an intellectual. Controls his life by bluntly manipulating "lower” people he surrounds himself with. Screws over whoever he can for self gain without them realizing it.

CASTING FEMALE ACTRESS FOR FILM

Date posted: May 3rd, 2017

View More >

Walkie Talkie Productions is searching for a female actress with Cerebral Palsy to star in our short film "The Real Me" directed by Isaiah Walk


STORY

No one has ever done anything mean to Katy before. But it's not about what anyone has done, it's about what hasn't been done. She doesn't feel accepted. She doesn't feel wanted. She doesn't feel normal. Katy struggles to find her place in high school as she has had cerebral palsy her whole life. 


After many talks with her "special" gym teacher, Katy decides that she wants to be able to dance on the dance floor for her senior prom, even if that means for only a minute… or even a second. 


One day she meets a boy named Greg. They befriend each other and begin to meet up and talk a lot. She begins to feel happy again, but still thinks that she is not wanted.


The more she continues to work with her gym teacher, the more she realizes that her wish of being able to stand up and dance at prom is not possible. What then is Katy to do? Will she get her wish? Will anyone see her for who she really is and not what she appears to be?



ROLE: Katy (lead, 15-25) 

Katy is shy but has a tough shell. She does not let many things break her, but when it does, it hits hard. 

 

 

We have a talented crew on board who have worked for and with Sony Pictures, NFL, Paramount, NBC, ISA tv, Wonfu Productions and so much more. 

If you are interested please email a headshot and resume to walkietalkieprod@gmail.com and we can discuss an audition. Thank you!

 

Best,

Isaiah

Two actors needed for short film (unpaid)

Date posted: Apr 18th, 2017

View More >

I am a film student shooting a film THIS WEEKEND (April 22nd and/or 23rd) and need two male actors with ages preferably between 18-30. Shooting will ideally happen for a good portion of the daylight on these days, so being available relatively early is important (starting around 10-11am). The location for filming is in Shakopee, MN, so having your own transportation would be necessary. If you are available for even one of the two days this weekend and have interest in being in the film, let me know and we can possibly reschedule one of the days. Feel free to email or text me and I can send you the script and we can talk about further details. Looking forward to hearing back! -Theodore-

We’re launching an animated web series with a target audience of teens to early twenties, and we’re looking for talented voice actresses, preferably ages 18-25, to play four high school girls. Please no submissions from minors.

CHARACTERS:

~Amelia (Hispanic), Latin-American accent, chill and laid-back, a prankster and joker, says strange and silly things for humor, speaks English and Spanish.

~Lakshmi (Indian), Indian accent, wise, peaceful, joyful, always smiling, says seemingly silly things that are actually packed with profound wisdom.

~Yuki (Japanese American), rebellious, cool and confident, quick-witted, snarky sense of humor, has a big heart.

If interested, please submit applications via email to Jameson.Richards.Film@gmail.com. Please include resume along with video or audio examples of your voice. Applications with no video or audio examples will not be accepted.

 

Please submit audio recordings of the lines of dialogue provided below. We will accept most standard audio file formats.


Amelia Dialogue Lines

??

I like to skateboard and I like to eat chalupas. But never at the same time. Well not yet, anyways. Now that I think about it, I might really enjoy that. I like to skateboard and I like to eat chalupas. Sometimes at the same time.??


Algunas veces hablo en español para que ella no entienda lo que estoy diciendo.? Pero aveces cuando hablo español no me entiendo a mi mismo.

Lakshmi Dialogue Lines


My way of seeing things is not necessarily superior to anyone else’s. Everyone sees the world in their own way. My way just happens to be very colorful.

I only see things that I want to see, but sometimes I see things that I want to see that I wish I did not want to see.


 

 

Yuki Dialogue Lines


I only need to get two things: the thing I need to get and the thing I need to get to get the thing I need to get. Wait, was that three things? Now I’m confused.

 

Now you see me, now you… still see me, but I’m walking away.


Delray Dialogue Lines


Actually, muscular contraction occurs when your brain sends electrochemical signals along neural synaptic pathways to myocytes in your muscle tissues.


I don’t have to read your mind to know you could use someone to talk to. If you’d ever like someone to pretend to be interested in what you have to say, I’m always here to pretend to lend an ear.

Performers Needs for Northern Spark

Date posted: Apr 2nd, 2017

View More >

About: Altered Esthetics seeks four performers to play the role of "Climate Change Denier" for our Northern Spark project. Each performer will receive a one time $50 honorarium for their preparation and performance shift. The ideal candidate will have a strong presence, acting and improvisation experience, and a passion for environmental awareness and advocacy. 

Northern Spark 2017: June 10th from 8:59pm - 5:26am

Performance Shifts: 9:00pm - 10:30pm, 10:30pm - 12:00am, 12:30am - 2:30am, 2:30 - 4:30am

Performance Times: Performances by the "Climate Change Denier" will be ongoing from 9:00pm - 12:00am and hourly 1:00am - 5:00am. Performance times and shifts may be subject to change.

 

Project: Debate the Denier

Do you have the facts to back up your beliefs? Many of us are surrounded by people who share similar viewpoints, but how do you respond to those on the other end of the spectrum? Like many prominent politicians, our "Climate Change Denier" thinks global warming is a hoax. Break out of your echo chamber and fight with facts. Do you have what it takes to win the debate?

 

Character: Climate Change Denier

There are many prominent political figures who espouse that climate cange is a "hoax". Performers will play this character on the sidewalk in front of the Southern Theater and challenge spectators to a debate on climate change. This is an opportunity for participants to practice effective advocacy in the face of non-believers. 

 

Ae will work with performers to develop the character and research arguments used by politicians, public figurs, and media outlets to deny the existence of climate change.

Approximate run time: 5-7 minutes with title and end credits

 

Synopsis: Three friends embark on a shady business deal to cook a highly coveted product despite risks to their freedom and become ensnared in an unexpected turf war. A dark comedy about the addictive nature of Thin Mint cookies in relation to drugs. Green uses a satirical approach with elements of parody through a Breaking Bad lens and an M. Night Shyamalan twist at the end.

 

Characters:

 

Crisco – Late 20’s, blood-shot eyes and a bit greasy with slicked-back hair. Has a thug look to him but has been around to know better.

 

Chip – Late 20’s, dirty blonde hair, a bit lanky wears baggy skater type clothes but hasn’t been on a board in over 5 years. Not stupid but does get caught up being gullible at times.

 

Wes – Late 20’s, medium build with a thuggish look like Crisco but quicker on the take than Chip. Has a mean looking demeanor but that’s just to scare away people he doesn’t want to talk to.

 

Mom 1 – Early to late 30’s hair pulled into a ponytail wears tank tops and sunglasses. All about her kids and everyone else’s kids and we need to raise them right, at least her type of right.

 

Mom 2 – Early to late 30’s, long hair and wears a hoodie, she’s mom one’s best friend and is always there for her. Always been more of a follower than a leader but she’s perfectly fine with that.

 

Tall Man – Sketchy baseball cap wearing with the hood up on a hoodie, this guy is trying to hide himself to the world. Just wants to get what he needs and move on.

 

Police Officer – Early 30’s just a bit out of shape but not too bad. Doesn’t mind breaking the occasional rule as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.

 

Random Woman – Late Teens early 20’s, dressed to look cute and draw attention. She wants her man’s friends to know he’s got a hot girlfriend.

 

Kid 1 – Ponytail, full of life 7-10 years old does what her mom says and has the same attitude. (Mom 1’s daughter)

 

Kid 2 – Long Hair 7-10 years old, into sports besties with Kid 1. (Mom 2’s daughter)

 

Kid 3 -  Short Hair 7-10 years old, loves being a scout and is always hanging out with Kid 1 and Kid2. (girl)

Z-FEST CASTING CALL

Date posted: Jan 19th, 2017

View More >

Z-FEST CASTING CALL:
 
Looking for four talented actors to star in our Z-fest entry. Shooting is planned for January 28 & 29, exact times TBD. Check out the roles below and let me know if you're both interested and available those dates by emailing your resume/headshot to the director at mikesorenson77@gmail.com.
 
Z-Fest Film Entry: “The Carpool”
 
Summary:
This is a short movie about an unlikely mix of 4 very different people that carpool to work together. The guy who drew the short straw has to drive and can’t stand his companions.
 
Role Descriptions:
 
Randy: The Driver
Randy is a 38-45 year old guy who has been doing his job too long and is exhausted from both work and his family life. All he wants is a few precious minutes of silence on his way to work…but he knows he won’t get it. Think: Pete from 30Rock.
 
Karen: The Bubbly Passenger
Karen is a 45-55 year old woman who always looks at the bright side and is far too chipper for an early morning drive to work. She also has a tough, dark side when pushed too far. Think: “Grace” the secretary from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
 
Bill: The Pushover
Bill goes with the flow. He’s a bigger, 40-something, balding, lonely single guy who is lonely and just happy to have a job and to have a few people to talk to. Think: Jerry from Parks and Rec or Todd from Last Man on Earth.
 
Cole: The Millennial
Cole is an attractive 20-something male with perfect hair and impeccable style. He puts his headphones on and doesn’t take them off. He only took this job to keep his dad off his back. He doesn’t have a car, so this carpool is his only way to get to work. Otherwise, he’d never be seen with these losers.

Casting for Series of Short films - Ease my mind at 5th & Broadway

Date posted: Dec 8th, 2016

View More >

Hi I'm Mark Magnuson and I wrote and will soon direct "Ease My Mind at 5th & Broadway". I've been passionate about films ever since I saw Back to the future when I was a kid, and now I'm at my first major endeavor in the field
 
 I self taught myself the technical side of film making, and well creative writing can't be taught. I'm also the founder of Calvero Films, in short I'm the one in charge of this production. Oh fearless leader they call me.
 
 
Crew-
This is a small crew (A couple of St.Cloud University Students for lighting and producing, and a small group of local friends that will serve as help and extras) 
 
 due to the fact that 
-I will be also manning the camera
-No need for boom mics, only shotgun mics
-And also we live in the digital age, films are a lot easier to make today
 
 
Budget-
With the ease of having a very simple script the budget given is very small budget on the filming side
$200-$300
 
 
Pay-
Deferrable/Negotiable
 
 
Aspects of the film-
Well it's a series of six short films that make up an arc that in total is the length of a feature length film. 
 
 
Cast-
This script only requires two main actors.
 
Chris (18 - 26)
Is a casual looking/easy going drummer for a punk band whom plays at some at the most shadyish of venues the city has to offer. And due to the fact that he plays shows till three in the morning and has to be at his job at an advertising frilm by seven in the morning, he finds himself at the little restaurant during that time.

Kay (18-24)
Kay is a college drop out sculptor whom is very inviting and talkative. Her quirks seem odd but that is just whom is she is. She is overly sweet and funny, but has a very dark past that prevails later in the story.

 
 
 
Plot-
Two people(Chris and Kay) that meet and get to know each other at a restaurant on 5th and Broadway. It's very heavy on dialogue and long drawn out emotion. Think of the witty banter of When Harry Met Sally meets the setting of Coffee and Cigarettes meets the emotion of The Apartment.
 
 
Location:
Main/Only Location - Keys Cafe in White Bear Lake,MN
 
 
 
Time of filming-
We would be filming during the off hours of the location because we don't want to interfere with the business(It closes at 3pm anyway) and the script calls for it to be shot at night and very little in the day
 
 
Schedule-
A schedule of times/day of said shoot will be acquired once hired for the part
 
 
Release form -
An official release form (Just basically a form that will let us use your likeness in the final film) will be also sent to you if you are hired for the part
 
Audition process - 
Video submissions and headshots can be sent via email, and public auditions will be held in the coming future.

 
 
A copy of the script or any questions can be aquired by emailing:
Calverofilms@gmail.com 
 
Thank you for your time-
 
Mark Magnuson(Writer/Director)
Jack Ebel(Producer)?

Mafia Film characters

Date posted: Sep 6th, 2016

I need one female and one male in their 30's. Experience is a plus.

I am looking for an experienced actress in or around her 30's to play a character in a film I am producing. It is a psychological romantic thriller built around two authentic mafia families. The character is a cousin to the lead actress and has  a substantial part towards the end of the film. It's kind of a fun quirky role. The actress I seek is Italian in the film so dark features would be best. This film is not scheduled for principal photography until summer 2017. I am casting now. There has already been several cast. I also need a male actor in or around his 30's to be a friend of one of the Mafia families.  

Please send a resume/reel/headshots to rhettindustriesLLC@mail.com Please feel free to email with questions. Thank you.
