Casting two males for film shoot (NE Portland)

We are shooting a film in central Washington later this spring and need two teen male leads. The age of the characters is roughly 18-20, so if you're younger or older but look 18-20, please contact us. Due to liability issues, no one under 18 may participate without parental consent. It is only a 2-3 day shoot, but very professional and a great opportunity for film experience. Also, this is a student project, so there is no financial compensation. Auditions are on-going through February.

DEATH OF THE PARTY - by Sven Bonnichsen
A frolicky pansexual disco boy goes to despicable lengths trying to unlock his best friend's untouchable heart. Claude, who thinks other people's suffering is the height of comedy, has the power to bed anyone he wants... Anyone, that is, except Dean: Man of Mystery, and rising musical sensation. When Claude pursues clues to Dean's past through a series of one-night-stands, unscrupulous infatuation will be punished with the romance that both monsters deserve.

Best wishes,
Sven Bonnichsen
