Orlando, FL Casting Calls: Actors Needed for Feature Film “Ten Tales”

Scatterpod Films Ten Tales
Location: Orlando, FL
Pay Rate: Copy of finished film, credit for your work, meals and great networking opportunity.

Electronic submission only please.

Project Notes: We are filmmakers looking to create something unique and original. The idea with this concept and project is to work with “real” actors who want to challenge themselves dramatically and “go” places they haven’t gone before.

This project will be scripted, but highly improvisational for a more natural, “first time” look and feel. Even the way this film will be shot, all hand held cameras with very long takes with no cuts will be used to create something perfectly flawed, unique and un-manipulated by editing or multiple takes.

We will expect any actor interested or cast in a role for this film to bring their own life experiences into their performance. The script will not be treated as a precious document that should be adhered to religiously, or at all. We will all “bring it” and see what we get.

Frank Fredericks – White MALE / 75 TO 80

Gary Fredericks – White MALE / 24 TO 30
Gary Fredericks is a 28 year old gay male, living in seclusion from the rest of his family. It isn’t that his family has rejected him, or been cruel, but that he’s never fit in with them at all and he does not know how to get along with any of them, from his father on down to his brothers, sisters and step sisters.

He’s had some ups and downs. Drugs, alcohol, money problems because of the drinking and drugs. But, he’s been clean and sober for over a year and a half now. The family is happy for him, but doesn’t really know if they can trust the sobriety, especially since this isn’t the first time he’s cleaned up. But, it is the first time he’s stayed clean for this long.

He hasn’t spoken to his father Frank for two years because Frank caught him stealing his mother’s pain killers out of the medicine cabinet. This prompted a huge knock down, drag out war between the two of them where too many things that shouldn’t have been said were said.

But, wants only to be given chores and humiliated by her.

Her husband, doesn’t know what she’s doing on these weekly visits with other men and women. In their marriage, he’s the one who’s got all the control and she knows he wouldn’t understand that these weren’t really infidelities, but just her trying to figure herself out.

Charlie Watson – Black MALE / 30 TO 35
Charlie Watson is a 30 year old, black, gay male. He’s Gary’s new boyfriend. He’s the first person Gary’s been able to stay with since sobering up and getting clean. That’s mostly because Charlie is incredibly patient and giving. He sees Gary for what he could and will be, not what he is now, or what he has been. They’ve been friends for a long time and Charlie was the only person that stuck with Gary through all his problems and fell in love with him in the process. Dating Gary is not an easy thing to do.

Stewart Beck – N/A MALE / 30 TO 35
Stewart Beck is a 30 year old, self made millionaire. He has started having weekly visits to a Dominatrix named Mary for a few weeks now and it’s really satisfying him.

He’s been holding out on her the entire time they’ve been working together and he’s trying hard to keep his secret, because once the secret is out he’s certain she won’t want to work with him anymore.

James Willson – White MALE / 38 TO 45
James Willson is the 42 year old husband of Mary McCall Willson. She’s been going out a lot lately which has given him some much needed alone time. He’s not sure where his relationship with his wife is going. They will have been married 11 years tomorrow and he’s noticed that she’s going through a lot of changes lately. Changes he’s not absolutely certain he wants anything to do with. He still loves her, for the most part, but is unsure of what to think about the direction she’s been taking her life. Maybe it’s their age? Women are supposed to go through an awakening of sorts when they get into their 40’s. The sex has definitely gotten kinkier and he’s not complaining about that. But, he’s still not sure the heightened sexuality is worth all the other new things he doesn’t like about her.

When his wife isn’t there, he’s been talking on the phone to her step sister, Janice. She’s also married, but, James and Janice have always had a strange connection. They never met until the day before he married Marry, where they shared a moment between the two of them, but never did anything about it. The older they get, the more they are wondering whether they are both married to the right people or not.
