Casting Call for Short Film “The New West” – Seattle, WA

Casting Call Details:
One male lead actor (18-24), and one male supporting actor (20-26) needed for a short film by Visual Pollution Productions. In the last year our films have played at the Seattle International Film Festival, won the Audience Award and been a finalist for Best Short Film at the Local Sightings Film Festival, and played on both regional and national television. This will be an unpaid gig (food will be provided), but we are planning to submit to major film festivals across the country, and hope this will be a huge addition to the reel of any of our actors.

THE NEW WEST is a Neo-Western that starts in a contemporary high school when a mysterious transfer student abducts one of his new classmates. As a counselor tries to sweat the truth out of him, motives become foggier, and a conventional revenge tale evolves into a story that is about justifications rather than justice. The scope widens to include an anti-duel with a cell phone obsessed drug dealer, and a moonlight showdown of wits instead of pistols. In the end, we see how someone can take the romanticized myth of the West, and use it to disguise actions that are from heroic. What better genre to explore the new brand of American villainy than the one that established our most infamous heroes?

Shooting will be in early to mid-August. Please send headshots and resumes.
