CASTINGNOTICE-FILM

This is Mort Fotouhi. I am a producer with Gilman Content, a new Houston-based media production company.  I’m in the process of looking for an actor to play the lead role for an independent feature film titled After Her Smile. The movie will be a documentary-style drama with a running length of around 80-90 minutes slated for filming in November and December of 2018 in Ontario and/or Alberta. Union or Non-Union (TBD)

Our production company is seeking a performer able to portray

[JUSTIN] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 18-23]
Justin drifts through life trying to make ends meet as a street musician. A detour journey after missing a ride takes Justin through a string of encounters with an array of colorful characters who make the forced journey a rite of passage for him. This role calls for the performer to be able to sing and play acoustic guitar at a basic level.

If you know of a candidate who is interested and available for this role, please forward his headshot and resume to this email address. We could perhaps start by an online read, and if there is a mutual interest, we could set up an audition by appointment in the second half of September when I am in the area.

Cheers!

Mort Fotouhi
Film Producer/Gilman Content

Please send head shots/resumes to Claudia Jurt at actottawa@gmail.com – NOTE: we are not casting this but are forwarding submissions to the producer. There will be another 17 or so roles once the lead is cast – stay tuned!
