Portland, OR Casting Calls: Actor/Actress Wanted for Short Film/Proof of Concept

Casting Call Details:
Hero Fiction is a start-up New Media and Motion Picture Production Company.

We are currently seeking a talented actor and actress to work on a fifteen-minute short film, working title “Young And Stupid”, that will also act as proof of concept for a web-series project. It will be a three-day shoot on location in or near Portland, but will also require pre-production rehearsal time.

We are looking to fill the roles of:

Angel, appears to be in her twenties: Speed-talking, extremely articulate, capable of being simultaneously daft and brilliant, cold and full of emotion, humorous and frightening. She lives her life as fast as she can, frantically seeking drama or distraction; to keep her self-esteem high and emotional desperation hidden. She would be comfortable in a salon among Beverly Hills socialites, yet secretly would never feel good enough. She’s someone who’s never felt relaxed or in control, yet never worked for anything in her life.

Vincent, appears to be in his twenties: Fast-talking as well, with crisp articulate diction. A big-hearted nerd with a hipster appearance, he is overwhelmed by his own sensitivity. A former debate team captain capable of out-arguing a barrister, he is lost in his own brain; his mouth rattle his overwhelmed stream of inner dialogue aloud. He’s a young man who wants great passion, needs totally exposed raw connection, hungers for deep life-or-death meaning, but is too overwhelmed by fear to be more than a self-deprecating know-it-all.

Please provide your headshot/resume and/or preferably a link to your reel or an audition piece. We would love to see a range of performance, from comedy to drama.

We are looking for committed dramatic artists willing to invest in a potential long-term professional relationship.

Although we would love to contract you for the first season of the web-series immediately, we are on a limited budget at this time. We will be choosing actors based on naturalness and ability to convey real emotion, and are open to both Union and Non-union at this time.

There will be $150/day contract pay rate for production dates. A SAG Short Film Agreement will be in use, deferring union scale payment.

We are in the preliminary stages of preproduction now and have scheduled a March shoot date at this time.

This is a work for hire job, of course, and we assume and reserve all rights to all content created as part of this assignment.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to working together very soon!
