Chapel Hill, NC Casting Call for Student Film


The Steward

Location: Chapel Hill, NC, 27514

Type: Student Films

I am a 15 year old aspiring filmmaker casting for a reel for my short film (in the works) “THE STEWARD.” The Steward is a psychological thriller that follows a mid-20s man with schizophrenia who is trapped in the profession as a contract kidnapper so that he can raise money to support his young (imaginary) daughter. This short film has five characters available, including the lead role. If you are interesting in playing any of these, complete this form and I will contact you to book an audition. Auditions are expected to be held on May 7-8 (Time and location can be flexible). Filming is expected to start in early June over the course of six full days.

– Harvey Randall: Lead Role, a mid-20s male contract kidnapper suffering from schizophrenia
– Francis Dubois: Supporting Male Role, a violent gang boss out of control, attempting to regain his power
– Noel Skinner: Supporting Female Role, a young ruthless gang member who desperately wants to prove herself
– Oscar Pugh: Supporting Male Role, a teenager who is the victim of a kidnapping
– Penny Randall: Supporting Female Role, the six-year old imaginary daughter of Harvey Randall

Modest compensation of $100-400 (depending on role) available after your scenes wrap, and clips for your actor reel 6 months after shooting. Filming will be in Chapel Hill and Durham, North Carolina; travel will not be provided, but hospitality during shoots will be generous. Depending on your role, the schedule can vary, since multiple roles are not needed at all locations and not all roles are needed for the entirety of the shoot. The shoots on these days will be all-day shoots with breaks. Scheduled shooting days can be coordinated to accommodate the five actors.

Payment: Paid
