Looking for an Actress to Collaborate with on Poetic Film Essay
Location: Boulder, CO
I’m Nicole, a filmmaker based in Boulder looking to collaborate with a local actress on a film project. The role is for a female voice-over recording to be used with a variety of imagery (S-VHS footage, paintings, still images, etc). The concept is to present a woman’s reactions and musings (like a journal/confessional) to a series of dreams she’s recently experienced and the subsequent shift of thought she is going through. I’m looking for a woman with an older vocal range — so, the ability to sound about age 45-75.
I’d love to find someone interested in a form of collaboration. Much of the script is written, but I would very much prefer to incorporate natural shifts/improvisations throughout the recording process.
If you’re interested in being a part of the project or learning more, send me an email. Feel free to send along examples of your previous work (if you have any — none required!) and any thoughts you have. As this is a self-funded film, I can’t afford to pay much, but I’d be more than happy to do a barter/skills trade for graphic design or website creation.
Let’s make some thought-provoking cinema together!
In terms of style/content, big influences of mine are:
Here’s an edited segment from Sans Soleil by Chris Marker, to give you an idea of a similar style of film & voice over:
