Hello and thank you for applying for a role in this project. Perhaps an accurate description of what to expect is Kill Bill meets Dr. Who: a crime world where random elements happen around every corner. Each episode will feature different characters, coming and going, with different plots.
I am a professional photographer and graduated from SMU with a degree in Cinema. I have not shot a video project in a while, because I am not very good with sound. The other day I watch the Spaghetti Western: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and the sound is clearly looped. They do the same thing with Kung Fu movies. So that is what you can expect- for me to put my all into making the project look great, yet dub in the sound in a cheesy fashion after the fact.
Everyone in this world is either a crime boss or a low level go-between. You may play a bounty hunter tracking down a gangster, while another bounty hunter is tracking you down. The more eccentric a character you can create, the better.
Also, I realize everyone involved is doing the project for free because you want footage for your demo reel and for a credited role. Let me know what you want to do and we can write something in for you to shine and demonstrate your talent. If you want to perform an evil villain monologue, be in a fist fight, or do a comedic beat, let me know.
We will shoot mostly in Deep Ellum and for a few hours at a time, probably on Saturday and Sunday mornings before the streets get too crowded.
The first thing I need to know is when you are available.
Next, please text me a photograph of some outfits you think your criminal character might wear. If we decide you will get killed, then we can work out a budget for getting clothes from a Thrift store to get bloody and be thrown away.
Last I will start having casting meeting to discuss the project with you, talk about costume and character and to take your picture for your wanted poster. I will need to do this ahead of time to get them printed.
I look forward to working with all the talented actors in the Dallas area. Let me know if you have any questions. And as a thank you to everyone is the show, I would be happy to shoot free headshots for your time!
