Seeking actors for short film “On the Border”

PROJECT: “ON THE BORDER”
CASTING CALL CATEGORY: SHORT FILM
LOCATION: ALBUQUERQUE, NM

ON THE BORDER is a short gay romantic comedy filming in August. 4-5 day shoot. There is pay.

SYNOPSIS: Two teenagers cross the border for a night of partying, but things don’t turn out as expected. Alex just turned 16, and Gabriel, his best friend, want to celebrate in Mexico, where the two teens can be themselves. They’re going to drink shots, hook up, all while in drag, to Gabriel’s delight and Alex’s surprise. But when Gabriel’s car breaks down, the boys turn to Pancho, a Mexican cowboy who might or might not be gay, to get them across the border. Hijinx ensue.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

GABRIEL – 15-18, male, Latino-looking preferred, flamboyant, loud personality, a bad boy in pink. Risky and controversial but doesn’t care what people think.

YOUNG GABRIEL – 8-13, same as above only younger.

ALEX – 15-18, Latino-looking preferred, conservative, preppy. This honor roll student is easily influenced, but also irritated by Gabriel. He’s dying to come out, but terrified to do so.

YOUNG ALEX – 8-13, same as above only younger.

PANCHO – 25-35, male, Latino-looking preferred, a Mexican cowboy, macho on the outside but with a heart of gold. Just broke up with his “girlfriend.”
