Role Details:

"The Fat Lady"

There is no pay for this role.

This role is open to non-union members.



Ethnic Look:

We are looking for an actress between the ages of 45 and 65 to appear briefly (in a non-speaking role) in a short being filmed April 16-18. She must be notably overweight. Far from being a punchline, she is, in fact, the character who ties the entire story together. She is the human embodiment of the film's metaphysical message.

Project Details:



adapted from Salinger's classic novel of same name | The intended approach is an avant-garde one. Staging will be near-complete Brechtian minimalism. (The overall planned look may be summed up in a single word: chiaroscuro. Think Bergmanís *Cries and Whispers*.) Three different actors, each, will be cast in the two lead roles.

Iíve written and directed a couple of corporate videos and some doc-style film, but have been interested in showing what I'm capable of in the narrative format. Iíve had what I believe are an interesting couple of ideas for Web series and decided to shoot this project as a way of addressing both of those concepts on my developing reel. So, this isnít a work for distribution or anything like that. Iím essentially just filming my pitch. I'm an artist and professional who has no interest in exploiting other artists or professionals; so, please don't be insulted by the fact that there's no monetary compensation for this gig. Instead, I hope you'll see it as I do: an opportunity that, in the best case scenario, leads to longer-term and, yes, paid work for the lot of us.
