Cleveland Ohio auditions for short film


Casting call for two male leads in short film (Canton, OH)

Where: Cleveland, OH

Type: Student Films

Casting for indie upcoming film, “It’s a one time thing (it just happens… a lot)” — NON PAID— Canton, Ohio

Nate Merritt is a junior communication arts-film and women’s studies double major at Malone University. His debut film, “Welcome to the Mind of Calpurnia Jones” was successfully funded on kickstarter and premiered at the Open Frame Film Festival last April. He would love for you to help with his upcoming film, “It’s a one time thing (it just happens… a lot)”

“It’s a one time thing (it just happens… a lot)” is a dialogue driven dramedy (in the vein of mumblecore) that seeks to explore milennial anxiety and self-destructive behaviours. Ellie Foreman is a twenty-three year old woman. “She is in a really weird place right now.” In the course of this short film she tries to deal with writer’s block, losing her job, a missed period, a one-night stand who won’t leave her alone, and falling in love with her friend with benefits.

We will gladly send a copy of the script upon request, and film reels will be accepted in place of auditions.

We are looking to cast the following roles:

DAN GREENE, 24-26, is Ellie’s friend with benefits (with whom she might be in love). He is a lanky Jewish musician and slacker. Despite letting Ellie spend the night on occasion, he insists that their relationship is “no strings attached.”

JOEL AARONS, 24-26, is a former one night stand of Ellie’s who comes back into her life when she and Rosemary pick him up off the side of the road. He is a wandering vagabond who has dirty blonde hair and is rarely seen without a hat.

If you are interested or think you would be right for any of these roles, please submit a headshot and samples of your reel (if possible) to:
