Casting two leads for short art film (New Haven County)

We’re looking to cast the two leads for an approx. 10-min 16mm art film (romantic magical realism – think Twilight) that will be filming in Connecticut in the early spring. The film will follow a young woman who is physically disabled and wears a leg brace, who falls in love with a strange boy who seems unable to leave the forest where they meet. Her struggle to love and understand the inscrutable young man mirrors her physical struggle to find him in the dangerous, unpredictable landscape.

Female 16-23 – Any race, body type. Classic, romantic features. Dark hair. Gives off an impression of intensity. The actor portraying her does not need to be physically challenged (in fact, this is preferable considering the amount of walking needed to reach the shooting locations).

Male 16-23 – Very pale, very slender, handsome, youthful-looking. Also the intense type. Should have delicate facial features and body, but look a little feral.

The shooting will be mostly on location outdoors in the Waterbury area, so actors should be able to handle a bit of hiking and cold weather. Being a romance film, the actors should be comfortable with kissing, etc. This is an independent film so we can’t offer compensation.

Please send headshots and some discussion of your experience and samples of your work if you have any (total novices are also welcome to apply). The director will contact actors who seem potential fits for the part later to set up auditions.
