Gay-friendly Actor Casting Call for GVSU Student Film (Grand Rapids)

“My Apocalypse” A Grand Valley State University Film and Video Production

Senior Thesis Written and (to be) Directed by Ben Kleyn, who received an award for “Most Outstanding Undergraduate Student” in GVSU’s Film and Video program last year.

SHOOTING DATES: Friday, Oct. 15 through Sunday, Oct. 17

Synopsis:

“My Apocalypse” (working title) centers on the imagination of William B. Sera, a socially awkward young man who dreams of writing a bestseller. Will lives a lonely life, and in the midst of his endless shortcomings, he imagines himself and his life to be more like something out of a novel than reality–until he meets someone in the real world who might just be better than fiction. But is he ready to wake from a life of dreams?

Available Roles:

NOTE: The role involves kissing the character Will. Because of this, I’ve had a lot of difficulty finding actors willing to play the part. If you can handle this small requirement, your application would be greatly appreciated.

  • ADAM NIX (Male, 20s to early 30s) An attractive young man who catches the attention of Will and Nadia in a coffee shop while reading a favorite novel. Appreciates the surreal and has a taste for the uncommon, but ultimately prefers realism over fantasy. Self-confident and charming. In Will’s initial fantasy, Adam speaks with an accent. Begins a relationship with Will but soon drifts away and ultimately ends the relationship.
