By | February 3, 2021


Location: Calgary, Alberta

Type: Film

I am casting for a short film titled “Coros”, a modern retelling of the War of the Worlds. We’re looking for actors of any ethnicity, and (except for one role) gender.

We’d like actors with dynamic, interesting faces and an unpolished look. A voice that can capture our attention is also important. We’ve identified age ranges for some characters as guides, but if you think you’d be right for the role, don’t let that deter you from submitting. We’ll be shooting on film which means less takes, so we’d like someone who can work within those constraints. Most importantly, we want someone who can take direction well and is willing to collaborate in making the character come to life.

You’ll be provided with a small honorarium for your work.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ll be conducting the majority of casting online, so please send a short expression of interest to We’ll be in touch shortly to follow up. Please indicate your experience and the role/ roles you’re applying for.
