Actress Needed for Short Film Shoot 12/9-12/11 (Portland, OR)

Actress Needed for Short Film Shoot December 9th thru 11th.

This is the fifth and final short film in a series we have been doing. The previous 4 films in this series (as well as the trailer for my feature sLipPage, now in post-production) are available for viewing at

For this film I need an actress/model in the 18-25 age range. This part is one of the two lead roles. Acting experience preferred, but I'm looking for a certain look: beauty, sadness, seductiveness. Expressive eyes a must. Much of this film will be dialogue-free, so a specific look is more important than acting experience.

This gig is non-paying, so only apply if you appreciate the style of the shorts we have already done.

The previous shorts are entitled ENGAGE-FAIL, FOR THE BENEFIT OF OTHERS, KILL! GREGO! KILL!, and THE GOLDEN SILKWORM. This fifth film is entitled TRUE FEELINGS.

Email headshots, questions, concerns, resumes.

Thank you for the interest!

- Bryan Hiltner, writer/director

How high would you go for a friend?

After their close friend David's medicinal marijuana dispensary is shut down, Margo and Jones try to acquire his prescription the illegal way. Attempting to buy marijuana off of high-school students, fleeing from police, and accidentally ingesting copious amount of prohibited narcotics create an once in a lifetime adventure for two middle aged ladies.

We are looking for several different roles to fill. Here is a list of the characters and their descriptions:

Margaret "Margo" Black
Margo is in her 40s. She is a very calm and collected individual whose feathers hardly ever get ruffled. She is always "put together" from her clothing to her non-chalant attitude. She doesn't like to show her emotions in public as she feels it is most unbecoming. This can make her seem a bit cold, but the smile on her lips suggests otherwise. Coy to a fault, but gentle and affectionate. She is the most introverted of the group. Margo is one of the lead architects at a thriving design firm.

Tracy Jones
Jones is in her 40s. Quite intelligent, she skipped a few grades of high-school, but her close connection to her inner child makes her appear juvenille and vapid. She is very free spirited in both attitude and dress contrasting to Margo's immaculate appearance. An easy-going prankster, Jones loves making people laugh and not taking life too seriously. Jones has gone through a few career paths, but has settled on her latest role as the owner of a successful yoga studio as well as a yoga instructor.

David Howard Pittman
David is in his 40s. The most extroverted of all, David is a true go-getter. Spontaneous and hardly ever willing to say no, David often gets into sticky patches and has to be bailed out by his friends. But that's why they love him so. David's mundane job as a financial advisor is heavily contrasted by his hobby of dressing in drag. He is the glue that holds all the characters together. He has been very courageous in his fight against non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer.
David was given a green card by his doctor in order for him to take medicinal marijuana to combat the side effects of chemo-therapy mainly the nausea. Embarrassed to smoke by himself, he convinced straight up alcoholics Margo and Jones to smoke with him.

Robert "Bob" Riley
Bob is in his late 40s early 50s. A straight-laced and cultured man of the world, Bob is often the butt of jokes and criticisms from Margo and Jones but only because he is David's boyfriend. Bob cares deeply for those around him and has nursed David through his entire cancer treatment. Bob is a man of few words in normal circumstances, but is quick to direct the troops in times of crisis.

Chases Jones during the high-school scene. Late 40s.

Police Officer
Pursues Margo and Jones on the road.
