Ethnic Look:

HYLA GILLESPIE (FEMALE LEAD) Mid 20’s. Preferably a woman with a shorter cut to her hair. She is Walker’s wife, an actress, bored in her marriage, but still bound by love to Walker. She is the one who finally decides on the separation, and finally decides she is no longer in love. She is a classic beauty – the modern look of an actress/model. Part requires 2 day shoot schedule. The role requires nudity and sexual situations. Compensation is $150.

Project Details:



Casting multiple male and female roles, from leads to bit parts, for a feature entitled ‘Palimpsest’.

‘Palimpsest’ is a political thriller set in 2001, about a psychiatrist’s encounter with a woman who believes her brother was killed on 9/11 in New York as part of a political cover up.

Beginning April 9th the feature will be shot over 3 consecutive weekends – Saturdays and Sundays – to minimize the impact on your work schedule. Different parts will be shot out completely on different days, so except for the male lead, most parts will be between one and 4 days.

Behind each character description are the estimated number of days you will be needed, though your flexibility is required in case shots need to be scheduled for an additional day, or in the case of any necessary reshoots.

I will expect that you be dedicated to this project. It’s an ambitious project, and it deserves dedicated talent. If you reply to this ad I need you to be committed to the completion of the project. Partner with me on this.

Race/ethnicity unimportant. This will be an ethnically diverse cast.

The film requires nudity and sexual situations in all the parts listed as LEAD. Compensation for each part is listed after the character description. Compensation is paid in cash at the end of your individual shoot schedule.

Respond with headshot and resume, and which part you are interested in.

The process is this; if interested we will contact you and give you more details about the production as well as sides to study. We will give you the day and time of the face-to-face auditions (they will be held on a weekend) and from there we will offer scripts to those who do well.

If however you are uncertain about doing this, or don’t think you’ll be available for the time, can make it to the locations or rehearsals, or are uncomfortable in any way with nudity and sexual situations, then please do not waste your time or mine!

This is an opportunity to create something. You will get 2 DVD copies of the completed film, plus all the press info. This film will be entered in festivals and you will be notified of any and all entries, as well as the results.
