Actors needed for short film

Submitted by godbrain on Mon, 01/14/2019 - 7:02am

I am looking to assemble a small ensemble of actors who can help me work on odd short films with relatively short notice. Some improv skills would be beneficial. Sadly, there is no compensation for this other than my indebted gratitude and possibly some chocolates. Though I will offer to help you move or stuff like that if the opportunity arises. And, if you ever need help editing your reel, I'm your man.

OK, not exactly the most enticing pitch out of the gate, so here's a bit more. I work with the film collective Group 312 Films. We have about a dozen filmmakers. Each month every filmmaker creates a film inspired by a group nominated theme. So, while I am personally looking for actors to help with my projects, there are likely other filmmakers in the group who would be equally interested your talents. Most films would be assembled and shot rather quickly. And most shoots would likely be done in an afternoon or evening. Some would be straight up traditional scenes, but some might be experimental in design. And, for the most part, shoots would occur near the end of each month.

Many of the best films will be screened publicly on an annual schedule at a number of local venues. And, my intention is always to create something that is festival worthy and have had a number of my shorts accepted into some.

I will also add that I am a very collaborative worker, so input, feedback, and even whole ideas would be welcome and credited.

Here are some samples of the films that I have made for the group:

Any interested parties should submit a demo reel. You can send a headshot and resume as well, but if you have an online reel, that is what I am most interested in.
