 CASTING CALL: Actors/Actresses needed for student short films! (Art Institute of Tucson)


Students at the Art Institute of Tucson are looking for actors/actresses for roles in several short films. The three short films involve a Super villain, a martial arts, and a Day of the Dead theme.


The characters needed are as followed:

"Dr. Zero"- After several unsuccessful attempts to get a new job, Matt White concocts an alter-ego as super villain, Dr. Zero. He plans to take the criminal world by storm but has to build his criminal operation from scratch. He enlists the help of several friends of his: A web blogger, a comic nerd, and a convicted criminal in order to try an achieve these goals.

-"The Web Blogger"
-"The Comic Nerd"
-"The Criminal"

-"Store Owner"- A character who isn't going to put up with Dr. Zero and the gang's antics. He chases them out of his store with a baseball bat.

-"Joe"- A potential martial arts expert who has been working on a new self-defense art that he thinks is more useful than any other. He's arrogant and overconfident in his abilities, and even if he's right in his approach to the arts, no one cares because of his off-putting demeanor. He takes an interest in Susan and hopes that she will be the one to hear him out.

-"Susan"- An actual martial arts expert. She teaches at a local Dojo. Perhaps a little arrogant and overconfident herself due to a recent tournament victory, Susan prefers to teach martial arts in the traditional way. Knowledgeable and quick witted, she always chooses safety over recklessness...Most times.

-"Darwin"- A petty thief and a rather unknown martial artist who lost in the tournament Susan won. He knows about the reward money that Susan has won and ultimately he is trying to find the opportune moment to steal Susan's purse in an attempt to grab quick cash.

-"Instructor" - Another martial artists who helps teach at the Dojo.

-"Jose"- A young Mexican boy visits his deceased mother's grave and is taken by a Reaper into the underworld on the Day of the Dead.

-"The Reaper"-Taking on a human appearance, the Reaper grants the Child entry to the underworld in order for him to see his mother. Unknown to the Child, the Reaper also intends to keep the child there.

-"The Mother"-The deceased mother of Jose. She ultimately meets her son again, and prevents the reaper from getting his way.

Extras will be needed for the short films as well!

Anyone interested can come to the Art Institute of Tucson located at the corner of Rosemont and Grant. You can check in inside the Admission's office and let them know that you have arrived for the casting call.
