DISCORD - Short Film Casting (Pacific NW)

Casting for short film to be shot in early fall.

Discord is about the tension in a relationship caused by differing opinions on the morality of child-rearing, ie should two people in a struggling relationship have a child? This central conflict between Irvin and Marietta, the film's protagonists, is back-dropped by two menacing mysteries -- the first is the sudden disappearance of Luz, a neighborhood child who Marietta babysits, and the second is a creepy spider that Irvin continues to come across throughout the course of the film. Discord will feature elements of gritty neo-realist films while making intermittent and surprising use of magical realism.

Casting for the following character roles:

Irvin: 18-25. The film's protagonist. He's a fit dude, he's Native American, and he does some martial arts in the film.

Marietta: 18-25. Irvin's girlfriend and co-protagonist of the film. Marietta is an attractive Chicana who wants to have a child with Irvin. She's prone to emotional outbursts.

Rollo: 18-30. A tall, Caucasian drug-dealer. Rollo is a classic wangster with alot of swagger. He's interested in Marietta, and his overt flirtation with Marietta leads to a fight scene between Rollo and Irvin.

Luz: 4-6. A little neighborhood girl who Marietta babysits. Luz is an ethnic child -likely Mexican- she has two scenes in the film and limited (somewhat flexible) lines.

Cop 1: 30-45. A veteran police officer who interrogates Irvin when Luz goes missing.

Cop 2: 30-45. Cop 1's backup.

The Neighbor: 18-35. Irvin's beer drinking, cigarette smoking neighbor.

Mr. Fapimai: 40-65. A stocky Thai man who owns the fish shop that Irvin works at. Limited lines, some in Thai.

Male Bartender: 25-35. A big friendly dude. Works with Marietta. Limited lines.

Delyla: 17-21. Luz's mother and Marietta's best friend. Ethnic- black or Latina.

Neighborhood kids: between 5 and 13. A bunch of children who Marietta babysits.

Casting Call for "Hell's Angel"

The Art Institute is seeking actors.One of the many up coming Senior films is by by Rachel Ungar, who is in the pre-production phase of her Senior film "Hell's Angel" and soon her casting call will becoming. I thought some of you would be interested or someone who is.

Synopsis: "Hell's Angel" is about Lucy, who has been banished from heaven due to misunderstood circumstances. Desperate to return the only thing standing in her way is the Archangle Michelle.

The piece is a tongue and cheek comedy which takes a fun light hearted spin on Fall of Lucifer story.


Lucy: Lucy used to be God’s favorite Archangel but was cast out of Heaven over a misunderstanding. She looks to be in her mid 20’s. She has red hair and is petite, which plays up her cuteness. She loves playful outfits and enjoys bright fun colors. Her favorite hobby is baking pastries – her favorite pastry being cupcakes. She is also a hopeless romantic. She has a spitfire personality – one second she could be cool and relaxed the next she could be in a rage. She is in love with God, and that is her main motivation to get back into Heaven.

Michelle: She is the Archangel of war. She is tall, blonde, and looks to be in her late 20’s early 30’s. She is elegant yet powerful. She is overcome by jealousy because of the way God feels for Lucy. Michelle shows the utmost respect towards God because she loves him but is otherwise hard and conniving.

God: Usually he can be seen reclining on his couch in his sacred garden….in his boxer shorts – only in his boxers. His favorite hobbies are playing video games and moping around thinking about Lucy. Tall, brown hair, 30’s.

Gabby: the Archangel of messages. She is graceful and simple. Around 5’6”, brunette, small build. Looks to be in her mid to late 20’s. She is Michelle’s best friend.
