Auditions in Baltimore, Teen Looking Actors for a Paid Safety PSA Project

CSX Train Safety PSA

Location: Baltimore, MD

Type: Film


Project: Short Public Service Announcement about train safety for CSX
Location: We will film locally, in Baltimore, MD
Time Commitment: 14 hours (4 hours in rehearsal, 10 hours filming)

Potential Shoot dates: Production will occur in May of 2017, based on talent and crew availability:
Synopsis: The video is a short horror movie parody. It begins with three teens being chased by a chainsaw-wielding maniac. They consider darting across a set of train tracks to try and lose the maniac on the other side of the train. However, as the maniac catches up to him, he begins taking on the role of a concerned adult, explaining to them how dangerous it is to be near a moving train. After the train passes, he revs his chainsaw and begins chasing the teens again. Actors must be able to clearly express the changes in tone as the PSA transitions from a feeling of terror as the teens are being chased, to feelings of confusion and humor as they receive an unforeseen reprimand about train safety from the chainsaw man.

Age: Late teens to early 20s male. Fit, macho, jock- looks like he should be the hero.
Role: In the heat of the chase, he is frantically trying to convince his friends to cross the train tracks in order to get away from the man with the chainsaw. The other two teens refuse to cross, as they would rather take their chances with the chainsaw man than cross the tracks before it is deemed safe to. His face turns from terror to exasperation as the chainsaw man grows closer and closer. This changes to bewilderment when he is scolded by the chainsaw maniac for being oblivious to the dangers of unsafe train crossing. Finally, he submits to the chainsaw man and agrees to wait until it is safe to cross.
