K POP HIGH
SEEKING TALENT FOR A NEW TV SERIES:
K POP HIGH

Casting very strong singers, dancers and actors
K POP HIGH is a mash up of Glee and the Korean Pop aesthetic, set in a boarding school with a performing arts program. The series follows three girls who don’t know each other upon their arrival at school but discover that they all share a sensibility for the K POP vibe.

LOOKING FOR THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERS:

SUN HI, Female, 16yrs
Killer singer! Sun Hi is funky and free-spirited. She’s a dreamer and has huge life aspirations. She wants to be a pop star, she wants to fall in love, and she wants to star in movies… she wants, and wants, and wants! As a performer, Sun Hi is creative and open-minded. She’s always wiling to try new things in her songs, choreography and staging. We love her because her energy is high and because she is willing to take risks to follow her dream. We laugh with her because her ambition is often misguided and gets her into trouble.

JODI, Female, 15yrs
Jodi was brought up in New York. She is loud and proud. Jodi is the fashionista of the group. She will keep her crew on the cutting edge of hip. Jodi can sing and dance, but her training is minimal. It’s all street informed. Hip Hop dance moves and Rap music are areas she’s comfortable in.

CORKI, Female, 16yrs
Corki is the wealthy only child to a Korean business tycoon. Corki is familiar with boarding schools as she has spent her life in them. Corki is a little aloof. Her comedy comes from her super rich upbringing. We love her because she really is innocent about how the rest of the world lives. Corki is under constant pressure from her father to do well in school. Her father sees K POP as frivolous, unlike ballet and the violin, in which his daughter has trained and excelled. Her classical ballet training will become an emotional counterpoint in her stories as she fuses ballet with Jodi’s Hip Hop style. Corki sings well and rocks the violin, once she loosens up (NOTE: ability to play violin is not required).

CALEB, Male, 15yrs
A dancer and singer, Caleb is obsessed with K POP culture. He knows every band, every song, every star. He believes it to be the next big cultural thing and wants to be part of it. Caleb often has a difficult time concentrating. He was sent to boarding school because he was falling behind in his town school. In reality, Caleb’s trouble paying attention comes from his high intellect. Caleb is a genius. He’s a brilliant songwriter/producer. Caleb thinks faster than others, but he can get so far ahead of himself that he often forgets where he is going.

Details & Submission Information
Production Company: DHX Media Ltd.
Executive Producer/Creator: Tommy Lynch and Nick Cannon

Actors/Musicians Needed for Indie Comedic Short Film “A Clean Slate”

Details:
A Clean Slate (Union / ACTRA)
Agreement: ACTRA Independent Film (AIP)
Production location: Ottawa
Shooting Dates: First week of April 2014
Director: Jith Paul (Treepot Media)
Writer: Paola Della Malva
Director of Photography: Karim Ayari
Submission Deadline: 5pm, Thursday, February 6, 2014

Forward submission or questions to: casting@treepotmedia.com

Role: (Principal)
Sandra: (mid 30s) Sandra is a party girl who was disappointed when her BFF, Gianna gave up her music career. A loyal friend, Sandra has never given up on Gianna’s talent and keeps encouraging her to overcome her pre-show panic attacks, although her methods are a bit overbearing.
========================================
Actors/Musicians We need actors who are musically inclined! If you play guitar, bass, keyboards, drums or DJ, then keep reading… *Knowledge of any other instruments is definitely a plus!

Roles:
Heman (pronounced “Hey Men!”)(30 to 40) He is a tall, intimidating man who has an extensive career as a bar bouncer. Heman is fresh from a divorce and is finally living the dream by owning his own bar and starting up a house band. He appears quite stern and serious and is not one for small talk. He’s always in control, except if he’s around a beautiful woman, in which case he becomes tongue-tied and can’t string two words together. He is Oliver’s father.
Oliver (17) Calling all Hipsters! Unlike his father Heman, Oliver is animated and cheerful. He is striving for a career in music with his only obstacle being that he writes really awful music. He hasn’t seen his mother after his parents’ divorce and doesn’t want to. He has taken on the role of looking out for his father (whether his father wants that or not). He has a secret crush on the sound guy, Charlie.
Shawn(30 to 40) Shawn’s a Civil Servant and married father of seven. He desperately needs the band in order to let loose. Shawn is really comfortable in his own skin and embraces his somewhat nerdy self. When not working, chauffeuring his kids around or playing guitar, he cherishes his bi-weekly, family outings to the local comic book shop. Apart from being a raging germophobe, Shawn’s a pretty cool guy.
Rob(40-45) Rob is Shawn’s brother-in-law. He’s a mechanic by day and loves cars and motorcycles however he’ll never love them as much as he loves his wife Barb… ever. A seemingly tough guy who doesn’t take any crap, Rob is also a hopeless romantic who quotes love songs in the hopes of sounding prolific. His loyalty can lead to unpredictability though. If he feels that someone he cares about has been wronged, he’ll go from zero to sixty in a heartbeat.
Charlie (19) Charlie is a good friend of Oliver’s and the newly appointed sound guy for The Apollo Lounge. He’s a Tattoo Artist who moonlight’s a DJ & Sound Technician. He’s aware that Heman can’t stand him and doesn’t care.
