New York, NY Casting Calls: Casting male and female actors for independent film “Themes from a Rosary”

Project: Themes from a Rosary
Casting Calls Category: Independent Short Film
Location: New York, NY

Award-winning writer/director along with award-winning producer (with, too, an award-winning cinematographer and an award-winning scoring composer) are looking to cast independent short film, “Themes from a Rosary,” to be shot in and around New York City, end-Winter, 2011.

The film stories the fall-from-grace of two insecure creatives, Moise and Andelise. Moise, an anonymous, would-be genius, commits to a bizarre undertaking: to build the world’s first functional homemade nuclear weapon. And as he professedly nears successful completion of his project, Andelise, a newly-renown photographer, must decide whether she believes MOISE mad, and therefore should help him, or if she believes in him enough, conversely, that she should take action to stop him.

Film cues mixed tones of moody, with eye anchored to style, and theatrical of nature, dark, though colorful of image. Prospect length: 20 minutes.

CASTING:

ANDELISE
Lead. Mid-to-late twenties, elegant, and beautiful in an obvious way. Calm of nature, complex in spirit. Interior, more expressive in action than with words, easily lost in thought. Andelise (Andie) carries the critical motives and “questions” of the film; role requires a passionate, adaptable actress, who can communicate much with little.
Note: The working script presently includes brief moments of solitary nudity for both male co-leads (Moise and Choggys), as well as for Andelise, to be shot in a closed environment, to be cut with delicateness and sensitivity. To be further discussed, as needed.

ELLA
Late-thirties to early-forties. An artist’s agent/manager. Quick-speaking, pun-intending New York-centric, in-the-scene kind of woman. Supporting role.

TRUMAN
Early thirties, handsome, if a bit bummy. A hoodlum at heart, who probably grew up rough-and-tumble. Now, more a dilettante, who hangs out with artists, subsists on café-culture, and somehow cleverly never needs a job. Supporting role.

Paid day-rate for talent consistent with small independent film standards, post & Invoice. Food and transportation included, in addition to copy of film, pre-/premier/screenings, IMDB page upload, and so on. Film’s geared toward festival circuit, with additional potential future likelihood of purchasable online full-download/streaming.
