(Male, 38-48 look, any ethnicity) - A cool, calm, calculated FBI agent. Sleepy good looks. Salt and pepper hair (but not necessary). The kind of guy who has seen the darker sides of this job, and that has taken its toll on him. There is a level of compassion and wisdom to him. Think Gary Sinese or George Clooney.

(Male, 20-27 look, Caucasian) - A schizophrenic, highly delusional young man that was once a mental patient. His body is heavily scared from self mutilation. Wild, frazzled hair. He has a number of physical ticks. Think Jake G. in "Donnie Darko" or Edward Norton in "Primal Fear".

(Male, 20-30 look, any ethnicity) - FBI agent, a young, ambitious, hothead. Derek Holder's partner. Fresh out of the academy and eager to see some action. Can have a serious attitude if he doesn't get what he wants. Clean cut. Conservative look. Think Guy Pearce in "LA Confidential."

(Male, 40-50 look)- Police Detective. Smart, sophisticated, well dressed and well groomed. A suit and tie kind of guy. Comes from a wealthy and educated background.

STORY LINE: After a grave mistake forced her to quit her job as a criminal psychologist for the FBI, CAROLINE BENNETT left her home in Texas to start a new life with her son, RILEY, in British Columbia. But it doesn't take long for her past to catch up to her. FBI agents DEREK HOLDER and THOMAS LEE show up at her door, asking for her help to safely apprehend a former patient of hers who is believed to be a serial killer. Caroline agrees to negotiate with the suspect. She discovers that he is ETHAN CAMPBELL, a highly unstable schizophrenic she worked with years ago when he was just a child. Caroline is able to subdue him and bring him in safely. Caroline is briefly lauded as a hero, and investigators conclude they have their man, until later that night when a local woman is brutally murdered. Realizing that the real killer is still on the loose, and that Ethan may only have been an accomplice, Holder asks for Caroline's help once again. Although she is reluctant, Holder convinces her that this could be a shot at redemption, and promises Caroline her old job back. Caroline agrees, and begins working closely with Ethan. He's highly delusional, and determining what he really knows and what he's imagined becomes exceedingly difficult. She soon discovers that Ethan was only a pawn, and that the real killer was manipulating Ethan into doing his dirty work -- committing his murders. And this isn't the first time the killer has done this -- he's manipulated many others into killing and has managed to get away scott-free every time. Caroline returns home one night to find her cabin up in flames and her son missing. She decides to go rogue, and secretly helps Ethan escape custody so he can lead her personally to the whereabouts of the killer. She finds him at a condemned house just outside of town, where they engage in a violent confrontation. Caroline is able to kill the suspect and save her son, even though Ethan escapes.

2 Actors, 18-20, for short film in SE Portland

I'm looking for two actors to help me make a non-commercial short.

The movie is based on a short story about a guy who lives alone and eats spaghetti all the time. This may sound like a fairly thin premise, but a short subject doesn't need to have the kind of big character/big dilemma that is required for a feature. The story is mainly told via voice-over narration by the male lead. The only dialog is a telephone call from the woman to the man.

male 18-30 - My preference is for someone clean-cut, but its somewhat flexible. The time commitment would be a couple days of a couple hours each. That would include recording of the narration.

female 18-30 - The woman would probably be seen standing on the sidewalk and talking on the phone.

If you're interested, try to email me a head shot and information about when you would be available. If it works out, I might want to shoot it this week.

Note: The movie contains no nudity/violence or even adult language.

In the coming months Jacqueline Gault will be shooting 4 shorts and a music video.

Below are breakdowns of the characters she is looking to find talent for. She will be scheduling auditions in the coming weeks and will likely cast all shorts at the same time. Casting for the music video will happen separately as that audition will occur on roller skates. :-) Please note that compensation for these projects is limited to copy, credit and food, but since this is for her reel, she will be pushing hard for all of them on the festival circuit. Script is available now for Dinner Party and Sack Lunch, scripts for My Turn and Take the Groceries and Run will be available at the end of next week.

When 7 college friends get together for a dinner party to meet Ben's new wife, things stop being polite and get very, very real.

Mike: the party host along with his wife. Mid to late '30's, average build.
Kathleen: Mike's wife, the perfect hostess. Mid to late '30's, genuine and nice, with a Martha Stewart edge - almost too good to be true.
Sarah: Kathleen's former college roommate. Petite and adorable in spite of having 4 kids under the age of 6. Mid to Late '30's.
Shane: Sarah's husband, an accountant, very serious and studious. Attractive, but in a goofy sort of way. Also mid to late '30's, thin build.
Ben: Mike's best buddy from college, they haven't seen each other for over 10 years. Ben is your typical guy's guy - into sports, fit and athletic, a little snarky and arrogant. Mid to late '30's.
Cassie: Ben's trophy wife, early 20's, thin build. Not much going on in that head of hers, smiles and tries to politely join the conversation, but doesn't have much to add.
Ed: The instigator. The jokester of the group. The eternal bachelor who refuses to settle down. Mid to late '30's, handsome, but not overly built. More of a GQ handsome, with a quirky edge to him.

SACK LUNCH, comedy
A middle-age housewife cures frustration with a little passive-aggressive revenge.

Wife: mid to late 40's, typical empty-nester mom type. Mom is the focal point of this film, which has very little dialogue, but tons of action. Comedic timing and personality are what will sell this role to audiences.
Husband: mid to late 40's, businessman, professional. Cold and militant.

MY TURN, comedy
Having three teenage sisters has taken it's toll on poor Billy. He's had all he can stand and he can't stand no more!

Billy: 7-9 years old, must have incredible sense of timing and physical comedy. Must be extremely likable - the audience needs to sympathize with this little guy and root for him in the end.
Melody: 18 years old, senior in high school. Typical older teenager, thinks she knows it all, rude to her siblings, bossy and demanding.
Charity: 16 years old, diva in the making. Extremely trendy and stylish and puts great effort into her fashion and appearance.
Harmony: 14 years old, following in her older sister's footsteps. Barely a notch above Billy in the household rankings, and tortures her little brother to take out her frustrations of being the younger middle child. Sassy and rude to Billy, idolizes Melody and Charity.

, comedy
Being a mom of two young children is hard enough. Try taking them grocery shopping when you are already stressed out of your gourd and nothing seems to be going your way.

Mom: early to mid-30's, tired, worn-out, frustrated. She's at the grocery store with her two small children simply trying to get her shopping done. Must have the ability to swing from manic to loving to screaming to crying to numb. Requires great comedic timing and minor stunt work (being chased by a security officer through a grocery store parking lot).

Kid 1: age 3-4, girl, winy and impatient, demanding ill-mannered little princess.
Kid 2: age 5-6, boy, complete terror. Throws food, wrecks displays, pulls his sister's hair.
Grocery Clerk: Male, mid '20's, thin build. Sarcastic, bored and snarky young adult that hates his job and makes everyone else miserable. Total attitude of arrogance and indifference.
Security Guard: late 30's to mid 40's, overweight, donut eating slacker that couldn't get in to police academy. Must be great with physical comedy, as he has to chase down the mom in the parking lot, panting, stumbling, falling down.
Old lady: elderly. She's in line in front of mom at check-out, going really slow, fiddling through coupons and writing a check.

ANOTHER NOTCH, music video
In need of roller dancers! We need men and women with various levels of skill on four wheels. In addition to needing 20 or so skaters, we need 2 attractive male roller-dancers who are AMAZING (there will be a dance-off!).

To submit for any of the above roles, please email your HS/R along with the role you are interested in auditioning for (please don't just email and say "whatever you think I am appropriate for" - you know your type better than I do) to She will contact you for an audition once we have the audition date set.

Hey there,
Well, the time is here, and we are preparing to shoot the first of our two feature films by The Brothers Freeman!
We have two big sequences which will require several adult actors in the background (sorry, no opportunities for the kids this time). I know it isn’t glamorous, but rather than post a craigslist catch-all, I wanted to contact my friends first… If you’ve worked with us before, you know that we like a family feel on our sets.
First up will be several scenes in a bar where a lot of the key conversations between the leads take place. You’d basically be sitting around with drinks, chatting and reveling with each other. This will be two or three days of work, on or around 10/25 – 10/28. These would be 8-10 hour days.
The next sequence, which will require even more actors in the background, is a Christmas Gala Party, where the protagonist starts to make some painful realizations about his situation. In these scenes, everyone will be dressed up, eating dinner, and listening to a speech from one of the key characters. Then, everyone will move to the dance floor for some rug cutting. This will be two shoot days. Schedule TBD, which I will know within the next couple of days. These would be 8-10 hour days.
Anyone who is available for both sequences is welcome to do both.
While we cannot afford to pay a day rate to everyone, the IOPIF restrictions require that we pay everybody something… so, we will be offering a $25/day stipend for gas/expenses and providing your own wardrobe. You will also be fed, and given credit in the film.
If you are interested in coming to play with us, please reply to
