My name is Rocky Russo and I am the director/writer/producer of this 25 minute short film and I am looking for actors! See the list of characters as well as their descriptions below.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PAID POSITION. Lead, Minor, and Supporting Actors will be compensated with a hard copy of the final product as well as a custom copy for their portfolio.
ALSO, if you're looking to help out with the production in ways other than acting, get in contact with me! I'm always looking for help and you will get the experience to work on a real film set!
The two audition dates are July 9th and 10th. It is being held at the East Bayfield Community Centre in Barrie, Ontario.
The following is a list of things we will need for the audition:
- A recent headshot displaying your current likeness
- A resume (include any acting experience, if applicable)
- A 1 minute, prepared dramatic monologue. 1 minute will be enforced and you will be asked to stop if it exceeds the restriction.
ALSO, during the audition, you will be asked to perform a cold read (a "side" of the script) with little preparation time. The "sides" (script excerpt) for each of the characters will be made available the day of the audition, so arrive early to get the script to look over.
AND THATS IT! Below are the character descriptions. Don't forget to check out the facebook event page for more information!
Lead Male, 17-22 years old. 5'11-6'4ish. No hair preference (other than short in length). (Maybe the ability to grow some stubble but that's not a huge deal, movie makeup magic!)
Kasper loves mystery novels. He is quiet and smart in nature. Also very curious. He is the boyfriend of Noelle.
LOTS of lines. He is in every scene.
Also, a smoker is preferred but not required.
Minor in lines, majorly important to the plot. 17-22 years old. Shorter than Kasper preferably but not required. Hair cannot be blonde. That is a must. Any length is fine.
Noelle is very cool and calm in nature. She is calculative and logical. However, she gives off a very shy and "good-girl" vibe. She is a subject of extreme confusion for the audience. She is also the girlfriend of Kasper.
Minor femme fatale (French for "deadly woman"). 17-22 years old. Must be blonde. For the right actress, a wig may be purchased but I'm looking mostly for blonde hair.
Stella is a very strong willed woman. She is dangerous and cunning, also very promiscuous.
Major supporting character. Late 30s-Early 40s in appearance. This can be worked into makeup however so don't worry about actual age. Hair colour and length aren't an issue.
Celia is a strong woman, yet unlike Noelle, doesn't give off a shy demeanor. She is smart and strong-willed. Celia is Noelle's mother.
Minor supporting character. Late 30s-Early 40s in appearance. This can be worked into makeup however so don't worry about actual age. Shorter, heavier build is preferred but not necessary.
Waldo is very nervous, cautious man. He is easily moulded through fear and doesn't stand his ground well.
Minor character. Age is open to interpretation. He is simply a denouement character (He reveals a critical element of backstory or information to tie things together). His character type and appearance are open to interpretation.
He is a bar owner or worker who is familiar with the townsfolk. He works in a small bar with live music and a dim atmosphere. He is very good friends with Kasper.
Thats all for characters with lines! I am in need of plenty of extras, so feel free to audition regardless of talent and experience! Even if you don't get a lead role, there is a really good chance I'll ask you to star as an extra if you are still willing.
