“SOCIAL SILENCE” Casting Call for Short Film

A Captain’s Crew Pictures/Thump Media Production

“Social Silence” is Captain’s Crew Pictures second production. We plan on entering this film into festivals, as well as using it as a tool to get our production name out there for future bigger projects.

Filming will take place in several different locations in the Central Michigan area. You may need to provide yourself a hotel room for the weekend. We will try to accommodate as many cast members as possible with free lodging. This applies mostly to core cast. Filming will take place August 24th, 25th, 26th. There is a possibility of filming on the 23rd.


Social Silence is a mixed genre short film, embracing characteristics from sci-fi, noir, dark comedy, and some documentary aspects. It takes place in a near future society where a new government has taken power and initiated new policies that leave behind anyone dependent on federal support, which causes dissidents to hide in secrecy and form plots of destruction to those in power. The main character (Landis Fowler) is a government detective who searches for his superior (Chief Donovich) after he was kidnapped during an interview in his office. This film is a reaction and commentary to what we as a society are experiencing right now in the government. It has a controversial message that will intrigue many viewers.
