Spears Tip Casting Call
Location: Email submission ONLY casting call. (CT/NY/NJ) residents are wanted.
The film is called, “Spears Tip.” It’s a fictional, lost tale about a small coastal African Kingdom and their love for land, nation and people told by African ancestors. When European explorers impede on their land, emotions rise as the kingdom is met with intolerance. As the story unfolds, the ramifications of decisions made lead to the need for liberation by a unified choice. The film will be shot through the perspectives of the villagers and this is a short silent film.

It’s incredibly important to share real visuals and different narratives of and from the Afro/black community to the rest of the world. More often than not, we don’t control the narratives created about us. We rarely get true representations of artistic, organic, respectful stories created to illuminate the wonder and glory of us as a people before slavery. “Spears Tip” was written for the purpose of telling a story about Afro/black women and men as they take on the shared responsibility of stabilizing their kingdom and staying strong for each other.
We want to portray the beauty and incredible strength of Africa before slavery, showing the truths about Africa and what the continent and its countries mean to the African Diaspora. “Spears Tip,” is a story that represents the underrepresented love and cultural pride that has been left out of so many narratives.
City or Location of call: Email submission ONLY casting call. (CT/NY/NJ) residents are wanted.
