Ann Arbor Casting
I am a senior at the University of Michigan in the film department. I am shooting a short High Definition film this semester entitled “The Account” and am looking to cast the film.
I will be holding auditions on Sunday, January 31st at 6:00pm. They will be held in Room 2407 of Mason Hall (also known as Angell Hall), 435 South State Street, Ann Arbor. There will be signs inside the building to assist you.
“The Account”…a story of forbidden love and the price people will go to keep it.
Set in the 1600s, Elizabeth and Benjamin Ackley live with their housemaid Madison. Elizabeth and Madison are lovers behind Benjamin’s back. However, the two women’s lives change drastically when Benjamin discovers them.
Caucasian. Mid 30s. She is distant with her husband because she is so attached to Madison. She is so attached because it allows her to enjoy a small amount of power she would not have over anyone else.
Caucasian. Mid 20s. The housemaid of the Ackleys. She loves Elizabeth because she is a comfort but Madison also feels that she needs to acquiesce to Elizabeth because she would be homeless without the Ackleys.
Caucasian. Mid 30s. Rugged looking. A surveyor. Benjamin spends a lot of his time away from his house, mapping the land. He is used to Elizabeth’s coldness and his eyes are starting to wander to Madison.
This is a very short script, only 7 pages. It opens in spring, moves to winter, then spring again four years later.
Estimate shooting dates:
- One night, mid or late February
- One weekend, TBD, for indoor scenes
- One day, late March or early April
Compensation: gas, food, a copy of the film.
Again, I will be holding auditions on Sunday, January 31st at 6:00pm. They will be held in Room 2407 of Mason Hall (also known as Angell Hall), 435 South State Street, Ann Arbor. There will be signs inside the building to assist you.
Please email if you would like a copy of the script or you are welcome to do a cold read at the audition.
I look forward to seeing you all there!
