Casting Call for Coffee Shop Background Talent
We are shooting a short romantic comedy film in August, 2011. “Love Over Coffee” will be shot in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. Casting extras of a variety of ages to work in the background for a variety of roles in a coffee shop.
Love Over Coffee details just one of many first dates Jason has had with countless women. To him, the coffee shop represents a revolving door of missed opportunities, boring conversations, and more than enough awkward silences to get a lifetime’s worth of caffeine fixes. To Katie, the bored waitress who’s poured him refill after refill all this time, work has literally become a daily grind. That all changes when Amanda, Jason’s next relationship hopeful, walks in. He assumes that she, like all the others before her, won’t provide the love he’s looking for. What he doesn’t count on is catching the eye of Katie, who’s finally ready to take a chance herself on going for what she really wants. Both soon realize that they’ve spent more time together and had better conversations then he’s had with any of the girls he’s invited there.
Through snarky, quick-witted dialogue, snappy one-liners, and a healthy dose of flirtatious attitude, Jason and Katie realize that love can find you in the simplest of places…the places you’re at everyday but don’t think twice about.
So breathe in the aromas, feel the warmth, and pour yourself a cup of love over coffee. Cheers to last first dates.
