Extras Casting Call for the Short Film “Sirens”

Casting Extras for Saturday Shoot

Casting extras for a 20 minute short film “Sirens.” Actors will be needed on Saturday, November 19th in Southeast Michigan.


Often dark, sometimes funny, “Sirens” is a short film about Charlie, a young man who returns home after a long absence to find his mother dead, but still warm, in the bathtub. Alone, he must arrange his mother’s burial in a town that has been shut down by protesters. The police, the paramedics, and the undertakers are all preoccupied with their own affairs, and he cannot even get a doctor to declare her dead. He spends his nights sleeping just a few rooms away from his mother’s corpse, and surrounded by its associated memories. He must deal with his own guilt and regrets while trying to meet the kafka-esque requirements of a broken bureaucracy.

Available Roles:

  • Extras: (Male or Female, open ethnicity, age 30-50) Paramedics (on strike) for a protest scene.


These are not paid roles.
