Casting call for independent short film “Max and the Reaper”
Max Kramer (10-15): A resourceful amateur detective—think Nate the Great or Encyclopedia Brown. There’s never been a case he hasn’t cracked. Max is quiet and contemplative and misses nothing.
Gus Blanchart (10-15): Max’s sidekick. Gus is a technical whiz with a homemade darkroom in his bathroom. He’s always on board with Max’s wacky schemes.
Tanta Martha (50-90): Max’s grandmother. After suffering a stroke, Tanta Martha is on the edge of death. In the film, Tanta Martha is 85 years old; however, we have an excellent makeup artist so younger actresses may apply.
Max’s father (40-50): Max’s father tries to be the good dad, but Tanta Martha’s stroke hasn’t been easy on him. You can see how much he’s hurting in his eyes. He’s bitter and sardonic, with a hollow laugh.
Max’s mother (40-50): Max’s mother is a frazzled housewife. With Tanta Martha moving in, she’s just about at her limit.
“Max and the Reaper” is a short film by students at Emerson College and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Roles are unpaid.
