Casting Call Details:
Plagued is the story of a girl who is forced to look at her life due to an unfortunate circumstance. This is the first production for Josh and Jaspin. We wanted to start with something that was life dissecting because this venture is a turning point in life. We are excited to work with people who want to learn and create something beautiful through storytelling and build personal relationships.
We are looking for people who want to be involved in a project from very beginning to end. This is a project we intend to crowd fund so want to get our creative team together. We know this is a lot to ask for no financial compensation but if you’re just starting out or looking to pack your resume this may be the project for you. We want your creative input, so this can be an excellent production and hopefully you will be as excited about this as we are and help spread the word.
We encourage everyone to apply who is passionate about storytelling and filmmaking. We will consider enthusiastic candidates as well as experienced ones.
This is a feature length film, which will be submitted to multiple film festivals, then streamed online.
Everyone must be at least 18 years of age. It will be a quick shoot eight days, either straight or in four weekends. We will try to work around everyone’s schedules. Plagued will be filmed in various locations around central New Jersey.
This is a NON UNION no budget film. There will be no financial compensation. Everyone will receive a copy of the finished film, food will be provided during filming, and all transportation paid for. Actors maybe responsible for their own hair and makeup and possibly asked to provide some wardrobe pieces.
Everyone will need to be available for a pre-production meeting/ rehearsal. The meeting will take place in November.
We will be holding creative team interviews the last week of October/ first week of November and auditions will be in NYC on Sunday, November 4 from 12-5pm.
Please send headshots, resumes, reel info etc.

Looking for creative, efficient, organized, responsible people who can work on the cheap (I mean really cheap). If you’d like to work in multiple areas great, let us know.
First Assistant Director
Director of photography
We need someone to make sure the film can be heard. We also have a lot of voice over, voicemail recordings, phone calls, and garbled whispering that has to be recorded.
I need a speedy editor for post production, who is comfortable doing both audio and visual editing.
