Casting Call for student film “Red Daisy” – Evanston, IL

Red Daisy, a short film by Northwestern University student Jingyang Cheng to be shot in October in collaboration with Studio 22 Productions is now casting.

Premise: A young teenage girl resorts to the Internet in the hope of finding the connection she so desperately needs, only to be confronted in the end with a nightmare she may never overcome.

Auditions will be Sept. 21-22, with callbacks on Sept. 24.
Shoot dates are Oct. 8-10 and 15-17. A more exact schedule is pending.

Character breakdown:

-Jessie (Lead, Caucasian, 18): a lonely, unglamorous high-schooler; a little rebellious; introverted and sensitive
-Mother (Lead, Caucasian, 40s): a plain housewife who carries a perpetual washed-out look on her face; a little naive and fragile but with deep emotions
-Father (Lead, Caucasian, 40s): a successful lawyer with clear signs of aging creeping onto his hard face; a little old-school macho; lonely

We also seek Caucasian talent between the ages of 15 and 20 to be extras on a high school bus.
*Two men and two women will be featured extras as jock-types and conventionally hot girls.

If you are interested in auditioning, please send a headshot and resumé, along with your top three 15-minute time slots between 7-11pm on the audition dates (Sept. 21 and 22).
