ROLES

THE THIEF – Any ethnicity, male, 30s.   Athletic, wiry, self-centered and largely amoral.  A career criminal whose career is not going so well.  Motivated by fear and self-preservation, plagued by nerves.   The cracks in the facade are becoming a liability.  Not a killer by nature, and is just figuring out what he is willing to do to survive.  Capable of moments of compassion.  Stunt/fight experience not necessary but helpful as this is a physically demanding role.   $200 PER SHOOT DAY

THE KID – Any ethnicity, female, late teens. Waif like and broke.  An impulsive run away from violently difficult circumstances.  Hasn’t really thought her plans through.  Too young to be on her own, but old enough to try.  Well on the road to becoming a bad seed until fate steps in with an irresistible offer.  $100 PER SHOOT DAY

THE FENCE -  Any ethnicity, male, 30s-40s. The closest thing the Thief has to a friend. A bleakly comedic yet naturally affable and friendly criminal.  Very aware of the importance of maintaining a professional detachment. Conflicted between his desire to help the Thief and his own self-preservation. $100 PER SHOOT DAY

THE CLERK – Any ethnicity, male/female, any age 18+.   An average joe with a memorable face working the late shift. Customer service is not their strong suit, especially at this hour.  $50 PER SHOOT DAY
