Current Projects

Below find all the casting calls and roles posted on this site by casting directors/producers, that are currently accepting submissions from Sacramento area actors/models/talent.

Project: The Pied Piper

This is strictly a virtual table read via Zoom of the first 50 pages or so of a horror genre film based on The Pied Piper legend. The screenwriter wants to hear the flow of the script before continuing to write. This is not paid, and should take about an hour to an hour and half of your time.

This will take place via Zoom at 7pm Mountain Daylight Time on Friday, June 5.

The original Pied Piper legend is far darker than what is told today. In Hamelin Germany in 1254 A.D., the Pied Piper was hired to get rid of all the rats in town. After the town didn't pay, the Pied Piper used his flute to hypnotize the children of the town into committing suicide.

Project: Rise of The Superkid

Rise of The Superkid is a 10 minute short film that will be shot in one location in Cameron Park this July over 5 days. 

Logline: A young Sacramento superhero elicits help from her trusty four-legged sidekick on the quest to find her superpower!

The three roles being cast are: The mom, the dad, and their 6-year-old daughter/superhero Ava. 

AVA: Ava, our superhero in the making, is best friend with her 11-year-old golden retriever Cali. (Who is also conveniently the director's dog.) Ava is a 6-year-old outgoing, playful, and resilient superhero.

MOM: Mom is in her 30's - 40's. She is sweet and playful, yet stern when she needs to be. She also needs to be comfortable around dogs.

DAD: Dad is in his 30's - 40's. He is goofy, playful, sweet, and supportive. But has a subtle sternness to him as well. He also needs to be comfortable around dogs.

This film is about a 6-year-old girl named Ava, who goes on quest around the house to try and find her superpower. When her parents become a little exhausted by the superhero shenanigans, she starts to lose hope that she'll never find her power. But just maybe, her superpower has always been hidden within her all along.

Project: Mobius Lane

Experimental Narrative film. A thriller with dashes of comedy. The film will be visually enticing with a great score to add that eery nature of the unknowns of the dark. The inspiration is derived from the autobiography, A Child Called It and Dante's Inferno Canto XIII.

The story is about a young man who is forced to confront the abusive relationship he had with an abusive mother. Our hero starts the film in a desperate moment: a gun to his head.  He believes that if his mother didn’t love him, who will? She destroyed his will to live and his capacity to love. However, through the help of divine intervention, Dion discovers that his mother sacrificed her humanity to save him from committing suicide.

Project: Paycheck

This is a short film about a Malagasy immigrant, working in Napa Valley to send money back to her family in Madagascar.

More background info, this is planed to have some french and maybe Malagasy language in it. This was inspired by my family as when I was young I watched my parents immigrate from Madagascar, to the heart of Napa Valley. This part of the story focuses on the struggle of finding a connection back home (leaving family behind) and working hard (without an education) just to send money back to take care of their family.
