CASTING CALL: Family needed for short film (Father, Mother, Daughter)

compensation: $80-$100/day per actor depending on role


Hello! My name is Paige and I am a student at VCU working on my thesis film to close out my senior year.

-Father (between 29-36) "Christian"
-Daughter (between 5-7) "Rory"
-Mother (any age, would be playing a teacher not the actual mother)

I am looking for a family to make casting a lot easier and safer during the time of COVID so that all of the actors would already be used to being around each other. PLEASE ONLY REACH OUT IF YOU ARE A FAMILY THAT CAN FILL ALL 3 ROLES. I cannot hire individual people because there is no good way to individually enforce isolation and want to keep people safe so please do not reach out about the individual roles.

The film is about a single father struggling with addiction, raising a daughter who has epilepsy. The shoot would be over a weekend so either friday-sunday or saturday and sunday with the rest shot the following weekend depending on availability and whether or not we were able to finish. I am hoping to shoot the weekend following halloween weekend. The script is very short and there is not a lot of dialogue. I am hoping to shoot in NOVA probably the Arlington or Annandale area. 3 locations: an Air Bnb, a school, and another location that will function as a work site but I am not sure about specifics for that one yet since it is so brief. The first shoot day would be the school and the work site, totalling maybe 5-6 hours. The second day would be all or most of the scenes at the air bnb, one scene early morning then the rest mid afternoon into the night so there would be break in between.

Payment will be around $100/day for "Christian", $80/day for "Rory", and around $80 flat for the scene the teacher would be in. I would also be providing meals and snacks during shooting and if needed you will be able to stay overnight in the Air Bnb. I will also be doing my best to ensure safety given the current state of the world, I will have a crew of 3, all of us will have been quarantined and tested before shooting and will be wearing masks the entire time.

If you are interested, email me pictures of all those involved and where you located and we can go from there! No experience required just good energy :)
