Urgent Casting Call for Horror/Thriller Film “What’s Kind About the Dark” – Austin, TX

Casting Call Details:
Miriam lives alone in the woods working as a homicide investigator. One night a stranger invades her home offering to help her on an important cold case. As the investigation unfolds, Miriam realizes that darkness is his true motive. Can she solve the murder before the dawn, and at what cost?

“What’s Kind About the Dark” is a feature length psychological horror/thriller film. The actors will be playing very intelligent people dealing with complex concepts. The ideal candidates would be able to breathe intelligence and confidence into the role.

We are primarily interested in hiring local Austin/Texas talent. We will be shooting in Austin and the surrounding areas so you need to already live here or nearby.

We are looking to cast the following 2 roles immediately, the first round of auditions ends AUG 18th:

“Miriam”, Female, Late 20’s – Early 30’s / Protagonist / $2,000

A smart, beautiful woman with a no-nonsense analytical mind. She is stable but solitary woman with deep personal issues. Ideal actress has an ‘exotic’, unique look. No Tattoos preferred. This part is open to all races and ethnicities.

This character is a brunette; non-brunettes will need to be comfortable having their hair dyed.

This role requires nudity. The nudity in the film is tasteful but essential to the story. The ideal candidate would be comfortable enough with herself to allow this, and will be in a professional working environment, with filmmakers that take the privacy and safety of actors very seriously. APPLICANTS WILL NOT BE ASKED TO APPEAR NUDE DURING THE INITIAL CASTING PROCESS.

(If you are an actress who would like to be put on file for consideration for other projects and roles that don’t have nudity, you are encouraged to apply!)
