Actor needed for lead role in our experimental feature film. Shoestring budget production. Cast and crew will be non-union volunteers. Our intention is to create a relatable story with a unique end-goal: We will not be looking for theatrical release or distribution deals when the film is complete. Since there’s no promises of pay, distribution or red carpet premieres, this gig is probably a better match for actors who are just starting out and want to gain on-set experience. We will be listing the film on IMDb and credit the cast and crew.
Our plan is to go straight to social media and release in mini-episodes. Our focus is to get our story out there and showcase our actors’ talents. While there will be auditions and we’ll be choosing the best actors who submit– we will NOT be making our selections based on who you know, your experience or IMDb status. If you’re local and fit the roles as described, you could be one of our three leads. We’d love to see a wide range of submissions!
Our story: ‘Unrequited‘ spans 120+ years. Each of the three lead actors will play five individual characters-– one in each time period. Our story begins in the late 1800’s and continues moving through generations of the families during the Roaring 20’s, the 60’s, the dawn of the 90’s and finally, current day.
We are currently casting for:
Male Actor #2: Plays five different parts– with four of the five characters being hardworking stableboy, farmhand and groundskeeper type roles. He works on the estates of families of wealth and privilege. Across the first four time periods, the girl he sets his sights on is out of his league– like Katherine and Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. His longings and feelings go unnoticed. In present day, however, roles are reversed and things have changed for everyone in a significant way.
Physical: 25-38, appears mid-20s to mid-30s. A little scruffy. 5’9 to 6′+ would be ideal. Strong, stocky build preferred. Complexion: tan, olive skin would be ideal, but open to pale. Blue or green eyes.
‘Unrequited‘ will be filming in northern Delaware near the Pennsylvania/Delaware state line beginning early Spring 2022. Local actors residing in close proximity to our filming locations will be given priority consideration. Submit contact information with current headshot, age, physical stats and cover letter w/relative information.
