Casting Call for Short Film “Psycho Billy” – Austin, TX

Casting Call Details:
In an attempt to evade an aggressive date, Billie disguises herself as a man and then gets caught up in her new persona. This homage to psychobilly music takes you through a bar of babes, brews and burly motherf***ers.

Auditions: Thursday 11/1
Shooting Window: 11/14-11/20

Character Breakdown:

BILLIE (21-27) is a fairly soft spoken young woman who tends to be a dirtbag magnet. She has an inner rowdy side that she never gets the chance to tap into. Searching for an actress with a slightly androgynous edge who will be able to transform into a rockabilly pretty boy.

JOE SCARY (21-35) works a couple of part-time jobs at bars and taco joints. He spends the rest of his time retelling the same stories of some drunken night or picking up women, usually the shy types like Billie. When he drinks, he becomes animalistic, entitled and violent.

4 BURLY MOTHERF***ERS and 1 Bartender (21-50): They’ve done a lot of hunting, a lot of fishing, a lot of drinking and a lot of tall tale storytelling. Looking for a rough looking bunch, beards and tattoos are encouraged.

Also looking for bar flies, 15 EXTRAS. 3 days of shooting. Can apply for just one or all three. No Audition Necessary.

Auditions will be held Thursday November 1st from 6 to 9 pm at the Belo Media Center (room 3.204)

Shoot schedule TBD, must be available during the week of Wed 11/14- Tues 11/20.

DVD copy compensation. Meals provided.

This is going to be a fast-paced production schedule with aspirations for festival submissions. It’ll be a really fun time for all those involved!

Please respond to schedule an audition time slot for Thursday 11/01.
