Small Role in Indie Film (Battle Ground, WA)

First of all it needs to be stated that this is NOT a paying job. It will be something, however, that you will be able to put on your reel.

I need actors with open schedules in the area of January - March. That is when we will be doing all of the production.
This is my final project for my second year of college.

Brief Summary:
Ultimate is a film of quirky humor and inspiration. It starts off with a young man Isaac, just starting his senior year of high school. Through his years at school he has never fit in. The coach for the school's ultimate Frisbee team holds open tryouts in an attempt to resurrect a dying sport. With Isaac's tragic and mysterious background in the sport he is apprehensive to start up again. The coach convinces him to join and his rise to popularity begins.
The movie would be a cinematic sports movie. It would be a comedy that makes fun of sports movies. It would be nothing anywhere close to the Comebacks or any sort of scary movie type thing. It would have an incredibly dry sense of humor. So much so, that if people didn't understand the movie, they would think it is a generic serious sports movie. The comedy would come from the appearance of being serious but not being serious in the slightest.
I have a full Executive Summary that I can email you if you are interested.

Rolls needed to be filled:
First and most pressing is the Principal. I would prefer a skinny, black woman in her 40's-50's
however, I am pretty open to anyone who is interested in this role. This position, however, does require for you to be at least 30 years old

I need a jock looking male as well as a timid cute girl. both around 16-20

Literally anyone 15-20 years old. Any gender, race, or anything else you could think of. I just need people to fill a school hallway and people to be on the Ultimate Frisbee Team.

If you fit into any of these categories and are interested even in the slightest, please email me. For the bigger roles I will hold tryouts (chances are though that I will pick you if you are truly interested)
For the extras, pretty much if you want the job, you got it! Just email me stating your interest.

Douglas Panch
The Vice Principle. After five years' absence from the Bee, Panch
returns as judge. There was an "incident" at the Twentieth Annual Bee,

diet and Jungian analysis. He is infatuated with Rona Lisa Peretti,
but she does not return his affections.

Leaf Coneybear
The second runner-up in his district, Leaf gets into the competition
on a lark: the winner and first runner-up had to go to the winner's
Bat Mitzvah. Leaf comes from a large family of former hippies and
makes his own clothes. He spells words correctly while in a trance.

hockey, a championship rugby player, plays Chopin and Mozart on

A Putnam County Spelling Bee finalist last year, he was eliminated
because of an allergic reaction to peanuts. His famous "Magic Foot"
method of spelling has boosted him to spelling glory, even though he
only has one working nostril and a touchy personality. He has an
often-mispronounced last name: it is Bar-FAY, not BARF-ee ("there's an
accent aigu," he explains with some hostility). He develops a crush on
