Calling all actors and actor wannabes

I have no idea if anyone reading this blog is into drama or acting and horror and has time to act in an indie film (Sarah? Ditch that job and hop to it!), but I'm going to put this out there anyway, and you can spread the word as you see fit.

The very talented Duane (he of the astonishing zombie walk makeup/effects work) will start casting his new silent horror flick, Cruel, in the very near future. The details:

I'm sending this out so that you are aware that within the next month at least, I and my film partners will probably hold a casting call at the media co-op. No...we aren't weirdos, perves or interested in porn. This will be a serious film. In particular for one of the lead roles, I will need someone that either is high school age and has an open schedule in October ( nights & weekends ) or someone who is older, yet can pass for that age. Also, to prove we are serious, said actor(s) will be required to sign release forms or have a guardian do so if they are under 18. That's the business side of things, and I pride myself in being professional. Anyway, talk it over with people...think it over if you are interested...I will post the time/date for the casting call when it'll happen. Worst case scenario, we have headshots and contact information from doing the huge casting call to renew our database of local talent because new talent has emerged like crazy in just the past year.

My film will be a silent-horror-film ( except for the very end ), and if you want to read the treatment/script, then go to my page and follow the link in the blog titled " Cruel. " Also, later on into the Winter/Spring, we'll be doing a horror anthology that takes place entirely out in the woods. Inbetween projects, we are also going to do a series about vampires like it's never been done before...interesting for once. All things that we are to film already has locked dvd distribution, but I will pursue the film festival circuits, too. If the film does well at fests, then we could be looking at possible theatrical release and more money for everyone. Yes, there will be money to be made on the back end of the dvd sales. We'll all make our money the same way unless some of the line producers I've spoken with lately come around with upfront budgets to pay people ahead of time. If anyone wants to view my film plan for CRUEL, they can email me directly.


So, if it sounds like something you or someone you know would be into, e-mail Duane at willy10speed [at] hotmail.com. Check out his MySpace pages here and here.
