I am excited to announce the first film project that I will be producing with my new company Five and Four Productions. Details and title will be forthcoming, but the idea behind my efforts is to carefully consider every detail from the script to the production design, to make all of our efforts to tell a story that much richer and more realized. This script is very special and I need the right actors to make it magic. I will be playing our protagonist, you will likely read with me in the audition.
So here are the details:
Five and Four Productions is seeking actors for a short film shooting in Austin, Texas in December 2011 and January 2012. The film is directed by Rafael Antonio Ruiz (Holy Hell) and will be aggressively submitted to film festivals. Please email your resumes and headshots with the role you are interested in to firstname.lastname@example.org Subject line: CASTING. Cast Positions will be deferred or unpaid, but you will be well fed and well appreciated.
