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.
