Casting dance-trained actresses for short film “Of An Earth” – Austin, TX

Casting Call Details:
We are a small group of local filmmakers; one of us is a professional cinematographer and Master of Fine Arts from the prestigious American Film Institute Conservatory, whose recent feature-length production “Zero Charisma” is in this year’s SXSW. We’re making a short film in May or June and need a blonde female dancer and a brunette (or African American) female dancer, both in their 20s, for the two acting roles.

The movie will be a surreal audiovisual poem that explores the difficulty of intimacy after trauma. Using abstract aesthetic means, we aim to give viewers an experience of the complex emotions from the damage that trauma causes to psyches and relationships. Dance will be choreographed by the award-winning Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company. Musical score will be composed by accomplished ambient artist Craig Walkner, AKA Moo.

Shooting will be divided between two locations — Pedernales Falls State Park and a room — two to three hours each. The scene in the park will consist of a few minutes of dance, and the scene in the room will consist of close-ups focusing on body language. There’s no dialogue to memorize, and hair/make-up/wardrobe would be largely up to you.

Though our budget is very limited, you would be paid a modest amount (in addition to getting a copy of the movie), which we can discuss in person. If you’re interested, please send your headshot, resume, and description of your dance experience/training. Thank you for your consideration, and have a nice day!
