Actors needed for New York Film Academy project

I’m a student at the New York Film Academy in the 4-Week Film-making program.
For my second short film (between 15 and 30 shots), I am looking for a young/middle-aged actor (between 25 and 45 years old) to play the part of a THEATER TEACHER.

The story: Emma, a young teenage girl, is stepping on a stage for the first time of her life. Generally very shy, she is absolutely terrified. When the teacher sets the light on her and asks her to start improvising, she first freezes then tries to avoid the light by taking refuge into the shadowy parts of the stage. But the light follows her. Very soon, she starts moving with the light and playing with it. Like Charlie Chaplin in “Modern Times”, she begins acting a truly comic scene. At the end of her improvisation, she has discovered a new passion: theater.

I am going to shoot in film, with a 16mm camera, in black and white, no sound.

The shooting will take place on Tuesday July 21st, from 2:30 to 6:30, at the New York Film Academy (100 East 17th Street New York).

I can only pay for food and a metro card if you don’t have any. You will however receive a DVD of the film, once it is edited.

Please contact me as soon as possible on my email address: helene.sifre@sciences-po.org.
