Yikes, feels like I just had a casting call for my short film. Well now we're moving into the big time. I'm casting for a feature film to start shooting hopefully in December but definitely at the beginning of January. It's a dramedy about growing up in Northern Colorado. A few of you have already contacted me through Skip, let me know if I failed to get back to you, almost all of those e-mails ended up in my junk folder but I think I found them all. Anyway, the parts I'm looking for are:
Martin - 18, Hispanic. A generally caring and fun individual, a focal point for the other main characters in the screenplay.
Natalie - 18, Race inconsequential. Martin's girlfriend, eventually forms a romantic bond with Kate and is unsure how to deal with it. Must be ok with kissing another woman in the film.
Guillermo - 20's, Hispanic. Martin's cousin and a larger than life character. The only thing more important to him than having fun is protecting and helping the people he cares about.
Stuart's Mother - 40's to 50's, Caucasian. Obviously the mother of lead character Stuart, his mother is a character trying to adjust to both Stuart's inevitable departure and the things she's missing in her life.
Stuart's Uncle - 40's to 50's, Caucasian. A farmer, Stu's uncle is a laidback redneck just enjoying the ride of life.
Young Stu - 5ish, Caucasian.
Young Kerry - 5ish, Caucasian
Jim's Boss - 30's to 60's. He's a character that believes that the only way you can be a good boss is by being disliked by all of your employees.
Kate - 18-22. Kate is a good friend of Natalie's. Up until now her sexual orientation has never really been discussed or become an issue, until things develop with Natalie. Must be ok with kissing another woman in the film.
Jim's Mother - 40's. Jim's mother has had health problems for the last ten years or so and while she loves her son very much, she doesn't always have the physical or emotional capacity to show it.
Bartender - 40's+ The operator of a watering hole in Utah, this character helps Jack and Jim, the two leads, get out of a jam in the middle of the desert.
Biker Gal - 20's-30's. A friendly boozehound that Jack and Jim meet at a bar in Utah.
Biker man- 20's-40's. The jealous boyfriend of the biker gal that Jack and Jim meet.
Bald Guy - 20's-40's. This character is all about getting what he wants, regardless of the moral implications.
Markk - 18. The boyfriend of Jack's love interest, very similar to Jack but they both hate eachother too much to ever admit it.
The plan right now is to meet with people on the evening of the 22nd, but if this doesn't work for you let me know I'm happy to make arrangements on an individual basis. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to send me an e-mail ObiMcD@hotmail.com
