Loo­king for EXTRAS – A Por­trait Of An Artist

Dear Per­for­mance Artists and Actors,

For our coming-of-age movie „A Por­trait Of An Artist“, we are still loo­king for extras that play a main role in a psy­cho­sis sce­ne as well in a gal­lery sce­ne. About the sto­ry:
Milan is a young artist who is ter­ro­ri­zed by his thoughts of suc­cess and fail­ure. His cha­rac­ter is fil­led with hat­red, hun­ger for indi­vi­dua­lism, and loneli­ne­ss. Howe­ver, he finds „peace“ in the making of art that is also simul­ta­neous­ly a fight with his per­so­na and ide­as of the world. He is cap­tu­red in the pres­su­re of suf­fe­ring. The­re is a drug-psy­cho­sis of Milan and a sce­ne in front of a school whe­r­e­fo­re we are loo­king for about 10–15 peo­p­le that will par­ti­ci­pa­te in both sce­nes. Also, the­re is a gal­lery sce­ne whe­r­e­fo­re we need around 10–15 extras.

For the drug-psy­cho­sis and the school sce­ne, we are loo­king for peo­p­le that look like the age ran­ge of 17–23 years old. As well, for the gal­lery sce­ne we are loo­king for peo­p­le that look like the age ran­ge around 23–80 years old.

The short film is sup­po­sed to work in mute, the­r­e­fo­re we are loo­king for peo­p­le who feel com­for­ta­ble por­tray­ing strong emo­ti­ons through facial expres­si­ons and body move­ments. If you have an inte­rest in per­for­mance, thea­ter, or acting and feel com­for­ta­ble in front of a came­ra, we would love to cast you for our movie.

If you want a link to the expo­se as well as to the script we will for­ward the nee­ded docu­ments.
