Actors and Film Crew Needed for Short Film

In pre-production for a low/no budget, 40-45 minute short entitled, “The Intervention.” Based on actual events in the mid 1970s, the script may be amended to the present to avoid costly staging. The story unfolds over a 24-hr time frame except a flash forward six months for one scene. Talent and crew can expect to film over a three-week period September-October, mostly weekends.


Available Roles:

  • Tom Melton: (age 27-35, caucasian) Small town newspaper editor, caucasian (lead role)

  • Bob Munn: (22-27) Reporter (supporting role)

  • Mr. T.: (19-21) College student, born and raised in Toronto (supporting role)
