Misanthropes is the third feature-length project from writer and director, Eric Morris Eskenazi of Gum Grove Films, LLC. It will be shot in New York City and New Jersey on a sporadic basis from late fall 2012 through 2013. The shooting schedule will enable plenty of flexibility with the cast to work in an organic and experimental process. There will be no crew involved except for the director who’ll operate the various HD devices. Misanthropes will be a hybrid of various subgenres such as ghost story, slasher, urban horror, black comedy and domestic drama. The plot will touch on the very dark fantasies and ambitions of both marginal and soulless characters.
Auditions will be held starting November in either Manhattan and/or Brooklyn. This will be a non-union feature. No pay involved, but profit points and volunteer accident insurance will be provided. The ideal cast will be those who are fearless performers, who aren’t prudish about using rough language and dealing with disturbing subject matter. Some of the roles will include nudity. A background in either multi-media, music, dance and videoblogging would be helpful. Those who are interested must exhibit absolute professionalism and dedication. In order to be considered for an audition appointment, please submit headshots, resumes and links to online clips consisting of legit work from either past and/or present roles in theatre, television, web series and film to the attention of Eric Morris Eskenazi.
