Montreal Casting Call: Actors needed for short non-union film

SYNOPSIS: A short film about curiosity, greed, and survival; a semi-violent tale in which a young man Mickey, investigates a gunshot from the neighboring motel room.

PROJECT: Short Film (6-10 mins)

ROLE#1/MICKEY: A young male between the ages of 20-30, a loner-type, sad and probably fairly depressed. A good, strange portrayal of curiosity and fear, the bulk of the acting roles will be on Mickey’s shoulders, and he is on screen for nearly 100% of the short, though the role is non-speaking.

ROLE #2: A young male between the ages of 25-35, has to appear menacing but not overtly so, (it’ll all be in the eyes). Little acting will be required but you must be able to portray confidence, the killer-type.

ROLE # 3: An older man, 50’s+, Santa Claus-esque, this role would be perfect for any actors coming off of the holiday season with their full white beard still intact. Even a smaller beard that can be dyed will work, though it has to be full, i.e. beard and mustache, by the time filming starts. (Jan-Feb 2011).

None of the roles have any lines, but all actors have to be comfortable working around artificial firearms, and slight violence, though mostly off screen.

Written, directed and to be produced by short story author Michael Treder.

Please send headshot/snapshot/picture, also include any other relative information, resume, website links, credentials, etc.

Beginners and new talent especially welcome; will not be particular on experience, just skill and portrayal.

This is to be a paid gig, rates TBD. 2-3 days of shooting in either Jan. or Feb. of 2011. This is set to be a short that will be submitted to various festivals.

More information about project will be provided upon inquiry.

AUDITION DATE: TBD
