Cast/Crew/Location Calls for Short Film “Flesh Computer” [Los Angeles] #casting #crewcall #locationcall

27 Apr

lesh_computer_sketch_4color

Posted April 27, 2013

PROJECT TITLE: Flesh Computer
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: SAG
CATEGORY: Short Film
DIRECTOR: Ethan Shaftel
PRODUCTION COMPANY: easyAction
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: June 6-9 2013
SHOOTING LOCATION: Los Angeles

SYNOPSIS:

We are a team of industry professionals shooting a passion project: a visually stylized and intellectually mind-bending short film, set in a dark future populated by organic machines. Very high production value with award winning production-design team, cinematographer, and visual effects. Already partially cast with some amazing performers, we are seeking a few additional actors to bring the world to life! (Not a huge paycheck but a very high quality cinema piece for your portfolio, and a short shooting schedule)

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

SKINNY – MALE, 13-30 years old — Mean, like a mongrel dog is mean. Kicked down his whole life; fed scraps, if at all. Now Skinny is MAD. Looking to kick someone else down for a change. Looking for power, looking for a moment of control. Cruel by nature and stick thin; bad skin, bad teeth, bad hair, BAD EVERYTHING. If this sounds like you, then I’m scared! But if this sounds like a role you could play, then please apply!

CHUNKY – MALE, 13-30 years old — Chunky peers out at life through beady pig-eyes filled with mistrust and suppressed hurt. If he sees a cat get hit by a car, he laughs and snorts with glee, because that animal got what it deserved, what EVERYONE deserves. If a neighbor’s house burns down, Chunky is over the moon, gloating; his black heart joyful. Chunky stuffs his face, picks on the weak, and toadies to his tougher friend Skinny. If this sounds like you, then you are a disgusting human animal, but if this sounds like a role you could play, then PLEASE APPLY!

EMILY — FEMALE, 6-14 years old — Emily is curiosity itself, head craned back to watch the stars one minute, crawling in the dirt the next minute to see what the worms are doing. She’s a true innocent in a dangerous world, observing life she doesn’t understand. Our young actress must be comfortable in contacts, as she will be required to wear a standard colored contact in one eye for visual effects work (In the final film, Emily will appear to have one artificial eye that glows in the dark).

MATTHEW — MALE, 40-60 years old — Matthew is Emily’s father, and though he is a fascinating person while awake, in this film he is only ever seen fast asleep on the couch, snoring loudly and lost in his dreams, and unaware of the drama unfolding around him. Looking for a mature, unique face, years of history, deep lines. A large, solid, heavyset man, a father to depend on.

CREW POSITIONS NEEDED:

Production Designer — science fiction experience a plus
Wardrobe/Make up

LOCATIONS NEEDED:

Creepy Basement — large cement area, pipes and ducts a plus
Retro Apartment — living room with couch and TV
Apartment Hallway — drab and non-distinct, slightly industrial
