Compass College of Cinematic Arts Student Film Auditions
Casting actors for the non-union short film, “The Last Hitler”. Auditions will be held at Compass College at Cinematic Arts (41 Sheldon Blvd) from 5:00pm to 10:00pm on January 28 and 29 and February 1. Shooting is scheduled for March 4th, 5th and 6th in Grand Rapids, MI.
Two Neo-Nazis trying to collect all of Hitler’s paintings from before he was a dictator find the location of the last one online, owned by an old German man who says it was passed down to him by his father. The two of them go over to the old man’s house to try and persuade the man to sell them the painting. After much bickering and negotiating, the man agrees to sell them the painting for a relatively cheap price. He tells them the painting is in his storage unit about an hour up north, so they take the train up to the unit. Once there, the German man betrays them and knocks them both out, and reveals to them he is actually a rogue Jewish agent who has been hunting down Germans for 25 years. He executes the two (one by gunshot, the other by dogs), walks out of the storage unit taking the money with him.
- Jeff: male, early 20’s to early 30’s. Younger man, lean and fit. He’s the brains of the operations and runs the show. He needs to be able to be a smooth talker and act in control
- Cyrus: male, early 20’s to early 30’s. Younger man, a bit more burly and built. He’s the brawn of the operations and needs to look intimidating and tough.
- Schwindler: male, late 50’s to early 70’s. The older man, mentor type figure. Would be good to have a slight German accent, fit for his age.
- Cult Leader
- Neo-Nazi One
- Neo-Nazi Two
