Casting Actors for Indie Feature Length Film

Title: SYMPHONY IN BLUE
Genre: Western
Logline: In an unremarkable near future, and an American Southwest devoid of the romanticism and beauty it once possessed, a Colorado Ranger pursues a group of five young people fleeing from the law to a nearly empty town in the middle of nowhere. Confronting their own personal obsessions with death and brutality, each must chose to abandon violence or embrace it on their way to a bloody conclusion.

Roles: Woman- [FEMALE] Looks like early 20s. The unnamed Woman travelling with the group is mysterious and intense, slowly assuming a leadership role and commanding respect from three boys who are barely more than children.
Harmon- [MALE] Looks like early 20s. After killing a family of four in a barroom shooting, Harmon fled the scene with new acquaintances Tommy, Garrett, Daniel, and the Woman. Even though he’s clearly the most unstable of the group, Harmon has a strange contentment about him, almost as if he’s already achieved his goals and is waiting for a conclusion only he knows is coming.
Tommy- [MALE] Looks teenaged. With his best friends Daniel and Garrett, Tommy is enamored with the perceived violence of the American Southwest that he’s grown up with. Unlike his friends, Tommy is intense and passionate about rebelling against a society that has, in his words, “grown tired of itself.”
Daniel- [MALE] Looks teenaged. Although he remains just as obsessed with the romanticized West as his friend Garrett and Tommy, Daniel is a scared and lonely teenager in a situation out of his control.

MARKUS / Non-Union// Principal / Male / All Ethnicities / 18-20
Innocent, socially awkward, Markus is a hitchhiker on his own. Vulnerable in a way that might be exploited. If you like fake blood, this is for you. Brief non-sexual nudity.

THE GIRL / Non-Union / Featured / Female / All Ethnicities / 18-20s
Her future was interrupted by this night. She could have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, but we suspect she was chosen, hunted. Strong physical and expressive skills are necessary, this is a vital role with screen time, but not a speaking part.

BENJAMIN / Non-Union/ Principal / Male / All Ethnicities / 40s-60s
Benjamin is a grizzled, man-of-the-mountain type, but can show a gruff paternal nature. He’s not a born teacher, and is out of his element as a leader/mentor.

Migraine or Headache Sufferers, Short Documentary Stories

We are creating three 1-minute, animated documentaries sponsored by Excedrin in which headache or migraine sufferers explain their headache pain using a descriptive metaphor, and also what it feels like once relief finally sets in. We are in search of three people who suffer from migraines or headaches frequently or infrequently, but whose lives are or have been disrupted by the pain. Ideally, talent has tried and liked Excedrin to get the relief they need. If not, talent should be willing to speak positively about Excedrin’s ability to provide relief.

Each video will begin as a video interview, then transition into an animated world in which we creatively visualize the metaphor for the pain.

We’re looking for diversity in backgrounds, ages and also types of headache or migraines, and we’re looking for unique and creative ways that each person describes the pain.

For example, “it’s like someone hammering 1,000 tiny nails into my temples” or “it’s like a boa constrictor that tightens at the back of my neck and shoulders, then crawls up my head and squeezes my eyes.”

The animations will be light-hearted and not morbid while still emphasizing the pain that headaches and migraines cause.

Then, the second part of the video will describe what it’s like to finally get relief. “It’s like I’m finally freed and can float above the world on a cloud.”

To audition, please send an e-mail with your name, age, occupation and a 1-2 minute video of yourself (can be recorded on cell phone or web cam) telling us about your headaches or migraines to info@massfxmedia.com.

Pay: $75 and you’ll be expected to join us for a 1-hour interview in the Denver area the week of February 20, 2017.
