Now casting for the upcoming independent feature â€œDown The Chainâ€ (Drama/Action/Sci-Fi. Estimated run time ~70 minutes; 24p HD).
The story revolves around Jacob, a man struggling to break free from his life of crime. When all of his debts finally catch up with him, he has one chance to set everything straight…and maybe even fix the past at the same time.
Looking to Cast Lead and Supporting Roles:
Robin â€“ Female, late-20s to mid-30s. Jacob’s love interest and his current â€œmarkâ€.
Dosyev â€“ Male, 50-70, thick Russian accent. Engineer who buys stolen goods from Jacob.
Hector â€“ Male, mid-30s, hispanic. Works for Mr. Wallace. Intelligent, well-spoken, ruthless.
Breaker â€“ Male, 30-40, bouncer/bodyguard type. Brawn over brains. Loyal, competent, brutal.
Mr. Wallace â€“ Male, 40-50, business man, crime lord. White-collar criminal. Envisions a one-man monopoly on all transactions in the city.
Tommy â€“ Male, mid-30s. Capable and direct. Like Jacob, he’s looking for a second chance.
Zeke â€“ Male, mid-30s, tough guy/bully. Money-driven, one-track mind, cold-blooded killer.
Janice â€“ Female, early to late 30s, business woman. Physics professor.
Amy â€“ Female, late-20s to mid-30s. Jacob’s deceased ex-girlfriend. She still haunts his dreams.
Old Man â€“ Male, 60-70.
We’re looking to start shooting mid to late September, probably around the 20th for 2-3 weeks. The budget is absolutely abysmal, and as a result all compensation will be deferred. However, no role has you on set for longer than a week, and in most cases only 2 to 3 days. Locations so far range from L.A. to San Diego, and transportation will be provided.
This is very much a passion project, and one for which we’re having to take the â€œanything-to-get-it-doneâ€ approach. We have a solid crew committed to producing the best story we can with the limited resources at our disposal.
Most of the budget is going toward food, so even if your wallets are empty, your stomachs won’t be.
The nearest target goal is to get it into the Slamdance Film Festival (latest submission deadline is late October). Lofty, I know, but what’s the point in aiming low, right?
Please reply to this email with a headshot, resume, demo reel (would be awesome), links to previous work, etc. If you seem like a good fit, I’ll shoot you some sides for the character(s) you’re interested in playing and we’ll go from there.
Thanks for taking the time to read all this and I look forward to meeting you.
