Casting Actors for Rock N’ Roll Indie Short in Denver


Yorktown, Filming in Denver Colorado

Drama-Comedy (Think Boogie Nights meets Whiplash)
Log-line: A talented but destructive lead singer has to rediscover the origins of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll in Denver’s underground when his record label drops him and his wife divorces him.
Shooting Schedule: June 21 – June 27
Locations: Marquis Theater, Oriental Theater, Multiple Residences in Colorado.

We’ve assembled some of the best crew you can get in Colorado, licensed original music written by our lead, Nate Cook, of The Yawpers, and now we just need a couple final musicians/actors to fill the rest of our roles!

Open Roles (all non-union):

Tyler – $50/day + meals

Man, 25-35 yrs, any ethnicity – THIS ACTOR MUST BE ABLE TO PLAY THE GUITAR BORDERLINE PROFESSIONALLY. ACTIVE MUSICIANS PREFERRED. Tyler is the 2nd member of the protagonist band, The Midnight Suns, and is the lead singer’s right hand man and best friend, despite the chaotic whirlwind that is Milo. Tyler is a chill stoner guy with a heart of gold and fingers that can shred on guitar. This is a lead role with many speaking lines!
