Chicago, IL Casting Calls: Need Actors and Actresses for Possibly Controversial Short Film

Casting Call Details:
I’m looking for 20-ish through 25-ish actors and actresses for a short film called Car Bombs and Quality Time. It is the story of a group of young people who decide to take action against the increasing digitalization of our social lives…through domestic terrorism. The film chronicles the human foibles and petty actions that are involved even in, yes, blowing up a database for a well-known social networking site.

Looking for four lead roles and several other speaking parts – headshots are preferred, resumes and examples of other work help but are not entirely necessary. Improv experience also is helpful, though not necessarily needed. The lead roles are as follows.

Tampa – The unofficial leader of the group. He is charismatic, intelligent, and keeps a light sensibility about the group’s more-or-less illegality. The type of guy that you’d want to hang out with, then talk about the subjectivity of human morality.

Rye – An impulsive intellectual. He does things many would regret, or even call stupid, then later rationalizes them to convince himself that it was a necessary part of his life. His interest in journalism and having memorable life experiences led him to joining the anti-social networking group.

Brighton – A girl who likes warm tea on a cold day, dressing to meet her own stylish standards, and British men. Often unconsciously gravitates toward being the more dominant force in her relationships, though they are often short, and frequent.

Carmichael – A newcomer to the group. He stays quiet to observe, but is well prepared to defend himself should anything particularly shady begin happening.

Filming dates and a definite audition date are TBA, depending on the turnout of applications. Please include a headshot, your name, age, the part you are interested in, any previous work you may have been part of, and for extra points, what you feel you can bring to the role and film’s atmosphere.
