“Arbor Day” Short Film Casting Call

Casting Young Male Actor

Fairytale/science fiction short needs male talent between the ages of 11 and 14. The story revolves around a boy, a family secret, and a monster buried under a tree.

Applicants must be able to shoot the weekend of April 28th and 29th and attend one rehearsal before then. The film will be shot in Charlotte, MI (30 minutes south of Lansing) but auditions/ rehearsals can be held in either Detroit or Charlotte.

Available Roles:

  • The Boy: (Aged 12) This is Thomas as a boy and/or the Boy of Thomas’ fairytale. The kid has guts. The Boy has stopped crying by the time of his parents’ wake. Then after witnessing even more tragedy he (successfully) hits the road on a lifelong quest to defeat and bury a monster.


This is a non-paid gig. Though low-budget there will be a professional set (most of the cast and crew do this for a living on big budget films.)
