UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND – Casting Call for Short Film – March 9 -April 14 – UNPAID

Dramatic short, around 5-10 minutes. This is a final project for Intermediate Film Production 302 at the University of Richmond. It is a non-union, non-paid project, but food will be provided on set, and you will be credited for your work. In addition, you will receive a link to the film and a Bluray or a DVD (according to your preference) for your personal/professional use. The film will be shot between March 9th and April 14th in the Richmond area.



Story: Quirky Dovie’s reality is radically turned upside down when a strange mask appears in her room and a trail of masks follows her everywhere she goes. She tries to escape, but all her efforts are in vain.

Character Breakdowns:
1. Dovie: 18-22, female. Dovie has green hair and wears quirky accessories such as time travel goggles. She is upbeat, spunky, sweet, and eccentric. Once the masks appear in her environment, she is confronted with a harsh reality; she must let go of her idiosyncrasy, conform to the norm, and ultimately wear a mask.
2. EXTRAS: Masked people, any age, any ethnicity, will be covered from head-to-toe, still and silent.
Auditions and location: Auditions will be held by appointment only at the University of Richmond. If you are interested, please SUBMIT your headshots to director Graiden Berger at graiden.berger@richmond.edu and/or call 203-979-8892 (Graiden) for an appointment. If you have any difficulty or questions, please don’t hesitate to call her.
