Urgent Casting: Seeking actors for paid short film “Sophie Hates Me” – Tampa, FL

Project: Short Film Urgent Casting (Paid) “Sophie Hates Me”
Location: Tampa, FL

Casting Call Details:

A Romantic Comedy with a twist. Jeff is a downbeat guy, and his gorgeous girlfriend Sophie HATES him, and she definitely isn’t afraid to make Jeff aware of her feelings. During a visit to the supermarket with Sophie, Jeff meets Claire, an adorable girl that Jeff can’t help but ask out. Sophie overhears their conversation, but instead of confronting Jeff, she ends up spying on the new couple during their romantic date, resulting in an unexpected conclusion.

Film will be shot on RED to a very high standard. Visit http://www.orensis.com to see examples of the film-maker’s work. Shoot will take place in and around the Bradenton area, and we’re aiming to film roughly between the 18th-21st February. Script can be viewed at http://www.orensis.com/sophiehatesme.pdf

This is an independently funded project, that is purely being made to showcase the talents of all those involved in front of and behind the camera. The Director and Cinematographer expect high standards of quality so this will be excellent showreel material. We expect to have wide exposure at all the relevant festivals internationally.

$250 plus expenses (Travel, Food etc..)


—- Sophie —–

Caucasian, Blonde, very attractive. Sophie can be impossibly warm one second, and the next she can be evil incarnate. She can say some pretty hurtful things, but there is something about her you can’t help but adore.

NB: Do not need to be a natural blonde.

*(Comediennes preferred, Elizabeth Banks/Anna Faris/Leslie Mann type)
Gender female
Min Age 18
Max Age 28

—- Jeff ——-

A decent looking guy that is down on his luck, scruffy hair and an expressive face. He is an everyman that has hidden confidence, but life has worn him down to be a slightly overweight/downtrodden husk of the man he once was.

*(being overweight isn’t a pre-requisite, a sense of humor and not looking like Tom Cruise on the other hand is. Seth Rogen/Jack Black/Adam Sandler type)
Gender male
Min Age 20
Max Age 30

—- Claire —–

Girl next door character, Claire is extremely down to earth, and adorable in equal measure, she is the type of girl you would proudly introduce to your parents. Very approachable and easy to talk to, she may not have the immediate looks of Sophie, but to Jeff she is perfection personified.

*(Jayma Mays/Alyson Hannigan/Zooey Deschanel type)
Gender female
Min Age 18
Max Age 28

—- Hunk —–

A very attractive guy. Non-speaking role.

Gender male
