Casting Call for Short Film “5 Day Forecast” – Chicago, IL

Project: “5 Day Forecast”
Casting Calls Category: Short Film
Location: Chicago/Illinois

Casting Call Details:

Greetings, and Happy New Year:

Casting call for an ultra low-budget short film.

5 Day Forecast is an emotional tale that examines self-consciousness in affiliation to the end of a relationship. The film details the story of a young woman, Nicole Wagner, who was just dumped by her boyfriend, CJ Ferrell. Feeling rejected and hopeless, Nicole refuses to leave her bed. The five day forecast looks wretched for Nicole. Will the gloominess of the wet and wintry weather continue to freeze her broken heart, or can she dig within her mind and soul to change the forecast?

Casting for the Lead roles of:

Nicole Wagner: 21-26, Caucasian, Female. She’s stylish, artistic, and trendy. She has an outgoing personality, but isn’t always the center of attention. Her personality is a cross between Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry. You MUST be able to cry on cue. There are bedroom scenes which involve lying in bed with another male character (no physical intimacy). There is a scene where you appear in a bra. The wardrobe for much of the film has you in a baggy long sleeve shirt, stretching down to your knees, but you aren’t wearing pants. None of the scenes/wardrobe/etc. will be shot to exploit you. Everything will be done in good taste, with respect to you as a person.

CJ Ferrell: 21-28, Caucasian, Male. He’s a sensitive rock-star type with a witty, sarcastic personality. His style is very modern. Think of him as a cross between Brandon Boyd of Incubus and Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars. There are bedroom scenes which involve lying in bed with another female character (no physical intimacy). None of the scenes/wardrobe/etc. will be shot to exploit you. Everything will be done in good taste, with respect to you as a person.

Supporting roles:

Mellisa Cornell: 21-25, any Race, Female. Nicole’s best friend. Sean’s girlfriend She’s irritable and bossy. She often seems annoyed, or as if she’d rather be somewhere else than her current location. Her style is very nerd chic.

Sean Rossdale: 21-25, any Race, Male. Nicole’s boyfriend. He seems “whipped” my Mellisa, but content about his relationship with her. A bit grungy, in a stylish way.

This is a NON-PAID/NON-UNION gig. You will be provided with a DVD copy, and refreshments will be on set.

Tentatively, casting will take place in early to mid February, with shooting during late February and early March.

Thanks, and have an excellent day!
