Seattle, WA Casting Calls: Seeking Actors for Short Film “The Pony Man”

PLOT SYNOPSIS:
It’s 2010 and the economy is in recession. But when Ed Heller loses his job, he sees it as an opportunity rather than a reason to lose hope. Inspired by a homeless street clown, Ed buys a pony and begins taking it door to door in his Seattle neighborhood. Will Seattle open its doors to the Pony Man? And will Ed’s children let him back in their hearts?

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN / CASTING NEEDS:

Ed – late fifties, caucasian, an accountant forced into early retirement who decides to pursue a new career as “The Pony Man” by traveling door to door in Seattle neighborhoods with a pony & a camera. Though the odds are against him (he has no prior experience with horses & this career in particular has been obsolete for decades) Ed forges ahead, determined to make his dream a reality. He has two grown children, one of whom still lives at home. During the course of the story, he takes a homeless woman into his home as well.

Bertie – mid to late fifties, African American. Decades ago, Bertie decided to dedicate her life to being a clown. Despite the fact she is now homeless, she remains strongly tied to her passion for entertaining children. Retaining a surprisingly positive outlook on life (& a very keen sense of humor) even in the face of extreme adversity, Bertie serves as a source of inspiration & strength for both Ed & his grown daughter, Barbara.
