We are looking for several people to help out crew side, please send us your reel (if appropriate) and fill us in on your experience. We are a team of independent passion filmmakers that often wear more than one hat and we are looking for some dedicated like-minded individuals to join us.
We aren’t making any money on this and we can’t promise you much compensation if any unfortunately (we are working on changing that) but Season 1 has already been included in a few video festivals and taken 5 web-series awards so far. So, if you’re looking for a kickass project and group of people to work with, we’re it.

Positions we are looking to add:

Please send a video audition of the side posted for each role. You may apply for more than one role but please submit separate audition videos per role.
Available Actor Roles:
[EARL] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 50-68] – ( Lead Role)
No particular race. Average build, single, divorced-twice. No kids. Doesn’t talk to ex-wives. No pets. Works at a call center somewhere- think Frontier/Convergys. His office looks a sea of cubicles in a warehouse with people on computers and phone headsets.
He’s a functioning alcoholic and frequents the same bar nearly every night. He always drinks the same cheap liquor, Kentucky Deluxe, double, on the rocks with a lime. He listens to old Marty Robins albums and throws darts at a board with a photo of his boss’s face on it.
Character reference: Mike Ehrmantraut from Better Call Saul/Breaking Bad with a touch of Jack Torrence from ‘The Shining’
[RACHEL] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 35-50] – Neighbor (Supporting Role)
No particular race. Average to bigger build. Rachel is Earl’s quirky well-meaning neighbor. Even though she’s younger than him, she often thinks of herself as a motherly figure in his life much to the annoyance of Earl. She has 3 cats and lives on the life insurance of her late husband Jerry who Earl remind her of. She is bubbly and sweet but something is a little off.
Character reference: Margo Martindale (in her sweet/nice roles)
[FELIX] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 30-65] – Bartender (Supporting Role)
No particular race. No particular build. Felix is the bartender/owner of Earl’s favorite drinking spot. They’re often friendly in the way guys are, speaking little about the important stuff but much trash about most other things. Felix is your run-of-the-mill owner/bartender who basically owns a bar so he can hang out in one and drink regularly for cheap. He thinks a “mixologist” is either something you can catch or some sort of fancy foot doctor. Both of which he’d stay away from if he can help it.
Character reference: Moe form the Simpsons/Lloyd from ‘The Shining’ (gruff and apathetic)
[EXTRAS] [21+/ANY GENDER/RACE/BUILD]
We’re also looking for a decent amount of extras for a couple scenes. This would be 1 day (probably a night/evening scene) for a few hours. Extras will only need to include a headshot, body shot, contact info & availability.
Payment: Non Paid
