Seeking actors for “Faint by Numbers”, a Non Union Short Film

Echopainter Films/Lakeside Concepts is casting for Faint by Numbers, a Super 16mm, 25-minute undergraduate thesis about Dustin Windsor, a stuck-in-a-rut, lonely, undriven college graduate who decides to pursue a bond with the person he’s convinced is his guardian after being saved from a near death experience by a stranger named Rank on the streets of NYC. Over one long weekend, Rank and his room-mate Jessie open Dustin up to the world he’s never let himself see, as Rank hides bigger problems than anyone saw coming.

Principal photography will run from January 2009 to March 2009, with post production to follow in April and May. There will be approx. 10 days of shooting, and all Dustin candidates should be able to make most all weekends and certain weekdays within January and February. Shooting will be in New York City and parts of Long Island, NY.

Auditions will be held by appointment on Monday, December 8th in New York City, from 1PM-7PM. There will be no other audition date, so please be able to make this one. Much of the movie is cast, but we’re still looking for some parts, including the perfect lead. There is no pay for the film, but copy, credit, and meals will be provided. This is a non-union production.

Everyone attached to the film has high hopes, and it is planned to be submitted to many major film festivals. Thank you for your time.
