Casting Call for Student Film “Merciless Playground” – Oswego, NY

Casting Call Details:
We are producing a short film for a class at SUNY Oswego. It is a drama entitled, Merciless Playground. The film is about a young boy, Jack, who is hit by a car, and years later he is paralyzed in a health care facility. Luckily, a new medication is tried on him that shows signs of curing the paralysis. This all happens as the boy’s Father tries to cope with his son’s illness. The film will be shot this semester, to be completed by May, in and around Oswego NY.

This is a student film, not a professional one. However, we will try our hardest to create a respectable and professional project and we are looking for actors to help us accomplish this. Since we are students, we cannot offer pay for acting, however, we will accommodate anyone as best we can which includes meals while on set.

We are looking for the following roles:

-Dr. Fred, 30-35, male. Starring role, a young “I can conquer the world” doctor who tries to help Jack.
-Nurse , 30-40 years old, female. Supporting role, a caring character who wants to see Jack helped.
-Mary, 25-30, female. Supporting role, the wife of Dr. Fred.
-Dr. Wilkes, 50 +, male. Supporting role, the head of the health care facility who supports Dr. Fred’s new procedure.
