Project: “The Unveiling”
Casting Calls Category: Independent Film
Location: Evanston, IL

Casting Call Details:


Shooting February 17-19, March 2-4

Written and Directed by Janel Montfort

Produced by Paris West

A college student’s life takes a foreboding turn when a childhood fear reemerges, leading her to an unsettling discovery.

Character Breakdown:

NICOLETTE Female / 18-24 Years. / African American

The film’s protagonist, Nicolette is an artist/poet who is a somewhat socially awkward, but otherwise average college student. She suffers from episodic depersonalization disorder, but fears that it is something much worse, resulting in an irrational fear of mirrors and her own reflection. She is extremely self-conscious and desperately struggles to hide her issues and appear ‘normal’ to those around her.

PAUL Male / 18-24 Years. / Any Ethnicity

Paul is Nicolette’s partner in her art class and a very talented artist. He initially isn’t a man of many words, but increasingly becomes more comfortable around Nicolette–eventually becoming romantically interested in her. He is genuinely concerned about Nicolette, but unsure of what to do.

CLAIRE Female / 18-24. / Any Ethnicity

Claire is Nicolette’s best friend and generally looks on the bright side of things. She and Nicolette are very comfortable around one another. A deeply compassionate person, she realizes early on that Nicolette may be in a dangerous place and desperately seeks to understand and help her.

SYLVIA Female / 18-24 Years. / Any Ethnicity

Sylvia is friends with Nicolette and Claire. She is rather blunt, constantly speaking her mind and is unable to properly express empathy. Though she is concerned about Nicolette, because she is an intensely rational person, she is more apt to dismiss Nicolette’s mysterious behavior.

PROFESSOR Either Gender / 41-50 Years. / Any Ethnicity
A college professor teaching a class on art. His/her demeanor is odd, intense, and a bit unsettling at times.
