Actor Needed for Short Film - with contact info!

Greetings Fellow Actors!

We will be shooting a spec for a short film called, Sway of the Knife, at the end of February. The spec will be used as a teaser on Kickstarter and the short film is an artistic project intended for the festival circuit and world domination. We are casting for the following character:


Physical Profile: Caucasian male, late twenties-early thirties, average build

Matthew is a charismatic, successful, young business professional with socially liberal but economically conservative politics. He is arrogant but not irretrievably so. A few of Matthew's ostensible qualities are a dry sense of humor, a penchant for telling good stories, wittiness, and an obsession for details of all shapes and sizes.

About the Project

The story revolves around a series of seemingly random, strangely anxious, and, at times, comical encounters between estranged Vietnamese-American brothers whose curious relationship is slowly revealed backwards in time. The inverted chronological structure will be interwoven with a style of lyrical, stream-of-consciousness "documentary" filmmaking that is largely inspired by Chris Marker's Sans Soleil. This bricolage of images is the interstitial space between their encounters and, together with the narrative, the film will be a unique amalgamation of dramatization and documentation that obscures the lines between fact and fiction.

About the Filmmakers

We are crazy and dangerous. Please visit us at www.nomenstatua.com


To begin with, you'll be fed well, given a copy for your reel, and have a swell time with some groovy folks. When we shoot the real deal in the summer you'll be paid for your time. Those details are TBD.

The When and Where

Auditions will be scheduled at varying times between the following dates:

Tuesday, 1/24 - Saturday, 1/28
Location: Inner Southeast Portland

Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Best Regards,

Vu Pham
