Lea­ding Role in Medi­um Lenght Pic­tu­re (Edward)

Hel­lo the­re,

For our short film, or rather medi­um length film, we are loo­king for an actor set to play Edward, the prot­ago­nist of our sto­ry.

Edward is 25, he is impul­si­ve, short-tem­pe­red and has sub­or­di­na­ted his enti­re life to goals and ambi­ti­ons that only led him to mise­ry. Tired of his fruit­less efforts, always unsa­tis­fied and secret­ly lon­ging for a dif­fe­rent life, he is caught in a net of expec­ta­ti­ons, pres­su­re and unhap­pi­ness, his suc­cess-ori­en­ted per­so­na­li­ty does­n’t allow him to escape. We meet Edward for the first time as he wakes up, trap­ped insi­de of a dri­ving truck.

Trap­ped insi­de of dri­ving truck? 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 Edward should opti­mal­ly live in Ber­lin, or at least have a housing pos­si­bi­li­ty here. Bes­i­des that I’d be real­ly nice if he was an Eng­lish nati­ve spea­k­er, as to movie enti­re­ly in Eng­lish.

If you feel inte­res­ted in play­ing to role let us know per mail, at the address:
(Pic­tures and Show­re­els are wel­co­med!)

We will be more than hap­py to send you the script and arran­ge a cas­ting.
With best regards,
