My name is David Flores. My colleague, Roman Arriola, and myself put out a casting call for a short film during the summer.
We are in need of a male child actor (age range 7-10) for a 5-10 minute short film. The film is an homage to Orson Welles' radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. Our story deals with a little boy who begins to imagine the events depicted in the radio broadcast as he hears it in the background. The film will be a period piece. Local Tucson residents are preferred and all ethnicities are welcome. No line memorization will be required for the child actor since the only sound heard in the film will be that of the actual Orson Welles broadcast. We are mainly looking for an actor who can express facial emotion without speaking.
If interested, the parents of the child actor should please contact me directly by email BEFORE December 28th. Email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email please include the following: A picture of your child actor and any indication of previous acting experience (this is preferred, but not a requirement). We plan to start shooting around the second or third week of January. Shooting will take approximately a full weekend (2-3 days). You, as the parent, are more than welcome to be on-set during production. We will notify you on the logistics of the shooting dates and locations at a later time. Since we are a student-run production, we unfortunately do not have the budget to compensate for actors. However, we will provide all crew and actors with finished DVD's when completed as well as the rights to use this film for portfolio needs.
We look forward to working with you.
