Wilderness Survival Film - CASTING SESSION - THIS SUNDAY, JULY 10TH!! (Portland)

A New York City/Portland collaboration is looking for actors to cast three roles for its upcoming drama short film, THE BRINK:

Logline: Three hikers find themselves stranded in the Oregon woods. As food and water run low, and as their friend struggles with a grave wound, they must make a decision that will either find them rescue or risk their lives.

We're seeking two male roles and one female role:

LIZZIE - Female/Mid-20's - Guided by her desperate desire to get out of the woods, Lizzie tries to keep the group moving toward rescue as she wrestles with her inability to control the situation.

MIKE - Male/Mid-20's - Loyal, earnest, and nice, Mike soon realizes that these qualities mean little to the harsh elements of the wilderness. His heart breaks as he must tend to his wounded best friend while following his girlfriend's lead towards rescue.

CHUCK Male/Mid-20's - A man-child built for bearhugs, Chuck is half jokestore, half asshole. He means well, but with a wounded ankle, he slows the group's search for rescue. His journey slips from humor to grave and serious danger...

Casting session will be held on SUNDAY, JULY 10TH, at the NW Film Center (934 SW Salmon St, Portland, OR)

The production dates will be from August 5th-8th. We will be riding up to Mt. Hood where a vacation cabin awaits. All food and housing will be provided.
