Casting A Short Film, Auditions Sunday 3/27 and Sunday 4/3

Thieves is the story of a cat burglar breaking into a sleepy suburban house during the dead of night, intent on acquiring a few valuable paintings. Little does he know that another burglar, far less skilled and refined, has coincidentally decided on breaking into the very same house. They weave in and out of each others path’s, both becoming increasingly confused by the trail the other leaves behind. Eventually the proceedings build to a chaotic climax that leaves both of or hapless housebreakers empty handed.


The Professional – Male, 35-50. A veteran criminal, his technique is polished and his skill refined. He’s a fastidious perfectionist, his one vice a tendency to let greed cloud otherwise impeccable judgment. Lithe, graceful and confident, he is the straight man baffled and confused by the strange occurrences unfolding during what should be a routine job. The role is challenging physically, with the performer being called upon to communicate with movement and expression rather than dialogue.

The Amateur – Male, 25-35. Younger and less experience than his criminal counterpart, he shows little caution or forethought and yet chance allows him to evade detection time and again. Careless, impulsive and inexperienced, he is the fool failing to even notice the strange occurrences unfolding around him. The role is challenging physically, with the performer being called upon to communicate with movement and expression rather than dialogue.

The Husband – Male, late 40’s-50’s. The homeowner who’s house is being plundered. He is a well-off executive with a penchant for pretty women and large weapons. Avid hunter and outdoorsman, self-styled man’s man, mid-life crisis sufferer.

The Wife – Female, 20’s. The third wife of our homeowner. Retired model now making her way in life as a trophy wife. Certainly not a helpless damsel in distress, she’s quite able to defend herself.

Production Details:

We are estimating a 6-8 minute running time and the shoot takes place on location during the weekend of the 16th and 17th of April with a location rehearsal on the 9th. It is very much a physical comedy inspired by work from the brilliant Jacques Tati through to the misadventures of great British comedy characters like Mr Bean and Basil Fawlty and features no dialogue.

Drop me an email if you are interested and I'll let you know more about what the audition involves and we'll work out a time you can come by.

CAST and CREW CALL for Raymond Carver Short Film (Portland)

“Men Who Don’t Work” is a short film adapted from Raymond Carver’s “What Do You Do In San Francisco?” The film centers around a postman who develops a strange curiosity for a family that moves into a house on his route. The story’s examination of loneliness, regret, and the inherent flaws in all of us provides subject matter that is both challenging and cinematic.



Seeking an OLDER MAN (55-70) to play a lonely and concerned postman in a short film based on a story by Raymond Carver. Slightly disgruntled and jaded, the postman develops a strange and desperate intrigue for a mysterious family who moves into a house on his route.


Seeking a BEARDED MAN (25-40) to play a withdrawn and aimless beatnik in a short film based on a story by Raymond Carver. Already somewhat emotionally vacant, he becomes a shell of a man after his girlfriend takes off.


Seeking a STRIKING WOMAN (25-40) to play a confident yet unnerving painter in a short film based on a story by Raymond Carver.



Seeking an experienced AC for short film based on a story by Raymond Carver which will be shot on a Sony PMW-F3 with Nikon glass. Excellence with focus-pulling, dumping media, and following direction are critical. Experience is required.


Seeking a skilled and knowledgeable sound recordist to record audio for a short film based on a story by Raymond Carver. Must have experience with digital sound recording for film. Equipment is a plus but not a requirement.
