Actor for Experimental Feature Film
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. We’re going straight to social media. 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 or are hungry to just get back on-set again. Unrequited will be listed on IMDb with credits for the cast and crew.
Our plan is to go straight to social media and release our story in mini-episodes this summer. Our focus is to get our story out there and showcase our actors’ talents.
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 forward in time during the Roaring 20’s, the 60’s, the dawn of the 1990’s and finally, current day.
We are currently casting for:
Male Actor: Plays five different crucial parts. Four of the five characters are hardworking stableboy/farmhand and groundskeeper type roles. The character 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 and unreturned. When our story turns to present day, however, roles are reversed and things have changed for everyone in a significant way.
Physical Description: Appears late-20s to mid-30s. A little scruffy. 5’10 to 6′+ would be ideal. Strong, stocky build preferred. Caucasian with tan, olive/Mediteranean complexion would be ideal, but open to pale. Dark hair. Blue or green eyes (Important).
‘Unrequited‘ will be filming in northern Delaware near the Pennsylvania/Delaware state line beginning early Spring 2022. Local actors residing in close travel proximity to our filming locations will be given priority consideration. *Please submit name and phone number along with with your current headshot, actual age (not range), physical stats and cover letter w/relative information.
