COVID Precautions:
In these times of uncertainty, it is my job as director and overseer of production to make sure the cast and crew working on set will remain safe and healthy. In order to ensure this, I will be providing my team with cleaning supplies. I will not allow more than seven people on set at a time, and social distancing will be enforced. In terms of catering, there will be no sharing of food; everything will be individually wrapped. The crew will be masked at all times and must remain in their designated positions. Any hair and makeup application will be done by the actor. Every prop touched will be disinfected before and after each shoot. Any location I intend to shoot at will not be around crowds or others at high-risk. I will be contacting the cast and crew often to make sure everyone is safe and healthy so that we can have the best on-set experience.

Student Film – “Nowhere”

This is a student film about three old souls nearing the end of their time in this world and lighting up a doobie as a small final stand against the immortal wave of time.
If you are interested in auditioning, please email me at aiden.pigg@ucdenver.edu. I will send you a side and then have you send us a video audition.

Parts:

Gerald- 70’s, casting in the age range of sixties and up. A Vietnam veteran, a man whose family has abandoned him in a nursing home.he is scared to die and worries about his entrance to heaven. He is the denial or mortality.

Jean- 70’s, casting in the age range of sixties and up. A hippie in her younger years, she is at peace with death, she views it as a release. She’s the one who supplies the weed and guides Gerald on his journey to nowhere.

Eugene: 70’s, casting in the range of sixties and up. A man in the grips of death. He is the balance between them, he fears but doesn’t have the time to contemplate as he just wants a release from the pain. He is ready for the end.

Due to COVID -19, we are looking to cast actors who are a couple for Gerald and Jean, so that we can film scenes with them together in the same room. That being said, you are not required to be in a couple to audition. If we are not able to find actors who are a couple, we have a backup shooting plan that will not require actors to be on set together. Also the crew and cast will be required to wear masks on set. The only time someone will be removing their mask on set will be the actors when the camera is rolling. The actor acting will be the only one unmasked and will only unmask after action has been called. The mask will be put back on after cut is called. Set and equipment will be sanitized as well. Cast and crew safety is on immense importance on set.

About the short film:

The film (currently titled “The Milieu”) follows John, an addiction counselor approaching 40 years old, on the day that he is to receive his five year sobriety coin at an AA meeting.  Achieving this sober milestone is compromised when he learns that his partner has OD’d and John proceeds to steal drugs from a new client at his rehab facility, leading to his relapse.  The film is about the cycle of addiction and how the shame and guilt that comes from being an addict is never far away.

We are currently casting for:

-JOHN – Late 30s/early 40s- A gay man who holds his cards close to his chest though he is comfortable with himself. He has the look of a guy who has been through a lot, and he has—a stint in prison, multiple rehab trips, lots of drug use, etc. But he has been able to kick his addiction to Benzos for the past 5 years and has held down a steady job at a rehab but his sobriety is a day to day internal ordeal.

-DEBBIE: Caucasian – Mid to late 20s- Debbie is a homeless girl who is still very much under the influence of drugs, particularly heroin. She has been on the streets for several months and has recently made it to the mountain town of Estes Park.

-DAWN: Caucasian – Mid 40s to 50s. Dawn is a recovering addict but has been sober for more than 20 years. She is married to a recovering addict as well and her entire life is dedicated to helping this community. But Dawn also has a very tough exterior since she is responsible for running the day to day operations at the rehab.

Auditions will be held Saturday, March 7th, from 10am to 1pm in Colorado Springs. (Address to be given out after initial email screening)

The short film roles are paid, and the film is SAG-contract.

‘Chicken or Fish?’

Logline: A stubborn mule, Marvin, celebrates his 40th anniversary with both his embattled wife, Sylvia, and his paralyzing alcohol addiction. In order to save the night and his marriage, he’ll have to undergo a series of surrealistic trials that pin his demons against him.

Supporting Roles: (*open to gender reversal)

*PHILIPPE, (30s) an English coat check that works at the “Pas De Deux” Restaurant — chipper and full of wit, opens the film with Marvin and Sylvia.

*JACQUES, (mid-40s) a snooty French waiter — extremely irritable when it comes to indecisive elderly diners, name drops the title of film at the end.

CHARLIE, (mid-40s) restlessly droll, pompous, and otherwise a clean-freak — the HERALD of the film.

*DEAN, (late-20s) a black gentleman who works at the Berkshire Inn, suited in hotel attire from the 1930s — he’s as charming as he is eerie, (think twilight zone), restlessly swats at a fly while having a conversation with Marvin.

*KYLE, (mid-40s) a repulsive fellow who lives an endless cycle checking into his room of torture at the Berkshire.

EUGENE, (60s-70s) Marvin’s alcoholic father — confronts his son in a dark void, BEARDED and heavy-set.

FREDO, (50) a dear friend of Marvin’s — although we never see him his role is integral to the film, he has a raspy voice and is very eccentric, guides Marvin back to a better self.

^Tentatively Filming the first (2) weekends of April (Fri/Sat/Sun)
