Casting Call!

Are you the greatest actor of our time? How about the greatest actress of our time? Somebody who is kind of thinking about acting but doesn’t know where to start? Aspiring to be an extra that crosses the street in the background?

Are you in Central Illinois? (Or willing to travel here…)

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, I want you to act in one or more of my 3 short comedies! And I really mean short, each project should only require one day of shooting.

Follow the link for more information!

Project 1: “Enhance It!”

Altan Bulanik is an international arms dealer and spy wanted in several countries. Bulanik has eluded the CIA for the past 5 years. New intel has pinned down his location, and a surveillance team is working overtime to get a visual ID. If they can figure out who he is they will be one stop closer to bringing him down.

This is a parody of any movie that shows a guy on a computer zooming into a grainy photo and revealing impossible detail. Like enhancing this “Bourne Identity” screen cap and reading the bulletin board in the background.

They're just fliers for Conklin's Mary Kay party...

Cast:

CIA Chief

  • Male, 40-50
  • Clean shaven
  • In charge of the entire operation, barking orders the whole time

CIA Surveillance Member

  • Male, 30-40
  • Clean shaven
  • This is the one who finds the image and enhances it

Altan Bulanik

  • Male, 30-35
  • The “bad guy” that they are searching for

Diner Waitress

  • Female, 20-30
  • She makes a mean cup of coffee, and enjoys interaction with customers

Extras

  • 5-10 other workers in surveillance room
  • Male or female, 25-50
  • All clean cut and business formal

Project 2: “Karma”

A young man is visited by a reincarnated version of himself, back from the future. He is asked to perform good deeds to improve the quality of life for his reincarnated self.

Here is a very loose animatic for the script. Be warned, it’s poorly made and contains inappropriate language:

Cast:

Young man

  • Male, 25-30
  • Unmaintained facial hair and bad hygiene

Reincarnated man

  • Male, 25-30
  • Gives a bit more attention to his appearance, but is visibly the victim of a hard life

Little old lady

  • Female, 75+ (or old enough to pull it off with makeup, no younger than 60)
  • No lines, but must be OK with the untimely, off-screen death

Project 3: “Nun-chuck Taylors”

A commercial that proves the old saying, “If your shoes don’t double as weapons, you might come up short when you are ambushed by ninjas.”

Cast:

Shoe Model

  • Male, 20-30
  • Clean cut, pretty-boy type
  • Martial art knowledge a plus

Ninja #1 and #2

  • Male, 20-30
  • Lean body type
  • Martial art knowledge a plus

Narrator

  • Male, 35-50
  • Deep, smooth voice, though I’m not expecting Don LaFontaine

I am also accepting help with behind-the-scenes work, so if you want to be a part of these projects, let me know! My email is hughmsullivan@yahoo.com
