Richmond – Casting Call for Museum Exhibit Film – April/May 2021 – Paid

CASTING FOR HISTORICAL FILM FOR MUSEUM EXHIBIT!
Liquid is casting for an upcoming museum project and in need of talent per the specifications below.  This is a nonunion project and will be filmed over the course of multiple days.  Here is what we know:
Project is a short film detailing events of the American Revolution, to be played at a history museum.  Possible excerpts for web/trailer may be used as well.  Usage is all inclusive and in-perpetuity.

All locations are in Richmond or the nearby surrounding area. Exact locations to be communicated to selected talent.  All roles are non-speaking.  COVID protocols will be followed for this production.  Please note specialty skills sought for some of the scenes.

NOTE – Actors / actresses need to be trim / fit physique.  Colonists, especially the colonists we are portraying would be farmers, craftsmen who tended to have lean diets and were physical in their occupation given the requirements of daily life in that time.

MALES can NOT have facial hair (no beard, no mustache, no full sideburns) to participate in this project.

Rate is $250 per person per day to be paid directly by the production at the end of each filming day.  (For those actors coming for fittings/training, those fees will be paid at the end of the first filming day.)
