“Where's Manny?” Short Movie Seeking Cast In RI

Expires: 3/7/2024
Description

Casting call for “Where’s Manny?” a coming-of-age short film. Actors needed. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. Please see the roles below.

About the project:
Logline: When a selfish high schooler Chase accidentally takes his classmate Almanny’s final exam, he embarks on a journey to return the exam while learning the meaning of friendship.

Rate:
No pay. Meals, IMDb credit, and footage for your demo reel (upon request) will be provided.

Additional info:
The film shoots 3/8, 4/5 and 4/6 in Boston, MA and 3/9 in Providence, RI. Chase must be available all 4 days, in both Boston and Providence. Classmates only need to be available 3/9 in Providence. All other roles shoot in Boston.
Cast is required to self-transport to set. The one exception is Chase: if you are a Boston-based actor who would like to apply for Chase, directors can help organize a carpool to Providence, as the crew will also be traveling from Boston. Otherwise, Classmates should be Providence-based or able to self-transport to Providence, and all other roles should be Boston-based or able to self-transport to Boston.
If directors get interest from SAG talent, they will produce the film under the SAG Micro Budget contract, so they are open to casting actors of any union status who are okay with these terms.

When applying, please include the following:
role of interest
your materials (headshots/resumes/reels)
your availability for 3/8, 3/9, 4/5, and 4/6
