Director: Lars. Short, indie action/horror film project that will be used to showcase the actors physical abilities and take advantage of set pieces, camera angles & choreography. As this will be primarily an 'action' film, there will be limited dialogue, so it is crucial that the actors be physically capable of running & performing some fight choreography. Seeking actors with prior experience in athletics, martial arts, dance, etc. who are comfortable with action/horror/drama/thriller-type material. No gore or nudity involved, but the action will be dramatic & somewhat demanding.
Am asking actors to include body shots (full to 3/4 - front & back, if possible - does not necessarily have to be professional shots, but it is appreciated) along with headshot & resume.
All actors will be paid a day rate, in addition to travel, and meals will be provided.
Accepting union & non-union actors, as I am pursuing the SAG short film agreement for this project.
As several scenes will be shot in Connecticut, Actors from Connecticut are encouraged to apply.
