diverse cast of 3 actors and 1 actress
My name is Jaime Reborn and I’m casting for a ‘Highlander’ fan film called ‘Highlander: Apocryphal’.
Principle filming will take place in Fort Worth, Texas.
The dates of filming have not yet been set.
I am looking for a diverse cast of 3 actors and 1 actress. All ethnicities are encouraged to consider auditioning.
3 characters will be 40’s – 60’s (or older)
1 character will be 20’s – 30’s (a somewhat youthful appearance)
The intent of the older actors/actresses is to help relay that they are experienced in their in-film craft.
I would prefer to have actors/actresses among the following looks/backgrounds: Hispanic actor/actress, Asian actor/actress, Caucasian actor/actress, Middle Eastern actor/actress, one Native American actor/actress. As I am trying to be inclusive of opportunities for actors/actress, I’m NOT just interested a “look”, but an actual actor/actress fitting the background of the character if possible.
The pay is $7.25 per hour + meals and it will likely take 2 full days of filming to complete and principle filming will be shot in one location exterior and interior.
The main characters will be, primarily, only exchanging dialogue with one another in a conversation as they are standing or sitting.
Type of dress for each character will be assigned after casting.
It would help, very much, if the actor/actress is familiar with the ‘Highlander’ franchise. There is nothing intended to be offensive about the content and it will be very respectful the ‘Highlander’ mythos and does not seek to change any canon.
The film will be made available, for free, on various online social media platforms.
If you are interested please send to me, via Messenger, your full length photos, headshots, resume, reel, social media links, or whatever it is you want me to review for consideration for the role.
While I am cognizant of the concerns of the COVID-19, the plan is for us to film the project outside where the actors are spaced out from one another and in a conference room where the actors are spaced out from one another but in each setting close enough to hear one another. We will try to take as much precaution as possible but if you are at high risk for COVID-19 and/or have strong reservations about filming because of it, please DO NOT submit for the project. That said, we WILL be observing/tracking the reports on the pandemic as we move toward the pre-production of the project as well and will respond/adjust accordingly. No one will be purposely put in danger.
Here’s a link to the IMDB page for the project.
