For our short film, or rather medium length film, we are looking for an actor set to play Dong-Hoo, the protagonist of our story.
Dong-Hoo is 28, seems harsh and careless, but like all of us, actually only hides his real self behind a mask Inside, he is filled with sorrow, disappointment and lack of purpose, which he has learned to kill with indifference, so that the feelings he cannot escape at least won’t hurt him anymore. For the first time, we meet Dong-Hoo trapped inside of driving truck, watching TV…
Trapped inside of driving truck watching TV? Exactly!
„1000 Miles an Hour“ is a story about two young men, who have been trapped inside of a driving truck since several months, with no recollection of the past, still desperately trying to find a way out.
The movie is mix of a thriller, a surreal movie and heist movie, with also some sci-fi elements to it. It it’s core though, „1000 Miles an Hour“ tells a story of all the young people, lost in their seemingly futile lives, overwhelmed by the weight of their own ambitions, trapped in self made cages, they no longer desire to escape from.
The picture is entirely financed by the directors own savings, the budget oscillates around 20.000 Euros, there is a crew of over 25 people currently working on the project.
Although we provide food and a pleasant working environment during the shoot,
we are unfortunately unable to offer financial compensation, as the film is financed entirely from our own funds.due to the high production costs, we put all our money in.
The Actor set play to role of Dong-Hoo should optimally live in Berlin, or at least have a housing possibility here. His English should be fluid, as the movie is entirely written in English, also I’d be nice if he was South-Korean, or had South-Korean roots. Actors with other East Asian backgrounds are also welcomed to apply! (We could adjust the script to the actor)
If you feel interested in playing to role let us know per mail, at the address:
(Pictures and Showreels are very welcomed!)
We will be more than happy to send you the script and arrange a casting.
With best regards,
