Lead Actor and Actress Needed
VisionHook Productions is casting actors for the independent, non-union short film, “Tiny Ocean”. Shooting will take place in Detroit, MI in October 2012.
“Tiny Ocean” The story of Luchi, a young woman in Detroit, torn between paying her rent and helping an illegal immigrant reunite with his family.
- Luchi: (Female, age 20-28) Luchi is a frustrated and very broke artist living in Detroit. Her street-smart demeanor covers an inherently generous person who’s always the first to give up a cigarette. Out of money but not ideas she attempts to stave off eviction by cashing in returnable bottles for scratch off lottery tickets. However her perspective and perhaps her priority’s change after a chance encounter with the talented vagabond Sembene.
- Sembene: (Male, age 25-32) Sembene is a young man who was shanghaied in Detroit two years ago on his way to reunite with his family. The family made for New Zealand having to flea from their home country of Rwanda during the genocides. Unable to speak due to his mysterious throat injury he communicates through his notepad and his graffiti, which he uses as his only form of escape. Without money, papers, or a voice and with no way home the situation looks dire until a chance encounter with Luchi gives him the first ray of hope of reuniting with his family.
These are not paid roles.
