Casting Call for Male Lead Role
Casting is underway for the role of Jacob Raines, the main character of the film “Shift”. I am a local film maker in the Jackson, Michigan area. It is my goal to create pieces of independent cinema that can be used as resume pieces for further employment in the film industry. As a director, I like to work with actors. If any cast or crew has thoughts or input, I will typically hear them, but the final decision is mine to make. It is expected and required that all cast members show up well-prepared with their lines memorized. We rehearse for a brief period and then shoot on directly after. There are no scheduled rehearsal dates or read throughs. Shooting days can last anywhere from a couple of hours to upwards of ten hours.
“Jacob Raines is a government agent spying on Singularity, a corporation that secretly controls the technology to travel through time. When Raines gets a mission that conflicts with everything he’s ever known, he must make a choice that will change time forever.”
- Jacob Raines: (Male, open ethnicity, early-to-late twenties) Actors must be committed, tactful, and respectful of the working environment and my creative vision for the project.
There will be no pay or monetary compensation of any sort for this project. Upon completion of the film, the cast will receive IMDb credit. The film will be sent to festivals and hosted on YouTube via my website.
