*Woman between the ages of 18-24 to play supporting character: this character, Jordan, is the ying to Taylor’s yang. She is calm, cool, and collected, and a little bit of a hippy.

*Man/Woman in their late 20s-early 30s to be a theatre director: distinguished, full of themselves, and passionate about theatre.

After losing another role in a large new play, she concedes to applying for a job in the college she graduated from, in the same department. The only difference now is she’s on her own and has a new found love connection with all purpose cleaners.

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

View More >

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.
