GERMANY: actors (m/f), 18-35, English spkrs, for short film in Berlin [PS]
What’s ‘Here’s My Card’ about?
This short film is a unique take on the heist film genre, during which one doesn’t see the heist taking place, but instead meets a male and female character right after the heist transpired.
The scenes are completely dialogue driven, occur mostly outside, there are few props needed and we can film it with a small crew, which is why, amongst other reasons, the concept can be shot on an extremely low budget. However, there are also multiple ideas we have to increase the production value, take the concept further and pay everyone for their time with the right funding/sponsorships.
We believe this piece is an interesting addition to the portfolio of actors hungry to make their mark on cinema and experienced actors on their way up, but interested in adding something wildly different to their body of work.
What makes this project unique?
-It’s an original and genre-combining concept.
-The dialogue is highly stylised and unlike what audiences are used to seeing.
-This short film will be trend-heavy in terms of atmosphere and cinematic feeling. This is something that we feel happens less frequently in fiction than in other areas of filmmaking and pop culture.
-It’s very fashion-centric.
Our aim is to send it to festivals like: Sundance, Berlin International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca, Raindance, Slamdance, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Telluride Film Festival, Locarno International Film Festival and Palm Springs International Film Festival amongst others.
The preferred festival for this film to premiere at is Sundance. Which means that in order to make the mid September deadline of Sundance, with the right post production schedule in place, the latest we believe we should film this in is August. We’d prefer the idea of shooting in July as we know that if we can’t find the right funding/sponsorships and therefore need to rely on favours, post production can take a bit longer.
We’re currently scheduling casting video calls for the 03.07.2021 to get know you and narrow the casting pool down. After that the 2nd round will be on the 07.07.2021 and be on location at: Prinzenstraße 84, 10969 Berlin.
We’re ask everyone including the talent to come tested.
If you are interested but can’t make it to one of these casting calls, don’t hesitate to contact us to see if we can fit you in somewhere else.
