Overland is the story of Noemi, a young, undocumented immigrant living in the United States. After escaping an ICE raid, Noemi tries to purchase a black-market “documents bundle” so that she can continue to work and send money home to her sick father. The problem? The bundle costs $500. In order to raise the money, Noemi starts working as a “fantasy maid”. Things quickly get out of hand, however, and Noemi must decide what’s more important—her dignity or the money.

NOTE: There are specific requirements for certain roles in this film. Please contact us for details.

HIDEOUS: While traveling across country on tour, six band members run into trouble on the road. Seeking help, they find themselves at a couples farmhouse, terrorized by a dark presence that has loomed there for decades.

LEADS:

ANNA Early 20s, girl next door, pretty, motherly. Works as a waitress in a small town restaurant. She and Billy have been together for almost two years…it’s been a rough relationship. He spends much of his time on the road pursing his music career. She loves him, but doesn’t really know if he can take care of her and the baby on the way.

BILLY Tall – Lead Singer- Late 20s, Long Hair, Rugged, Quiet and Collected. A frustrated man, he constantly tries to please himself and others, but has trouble doing so. He is constantly trying to quit smoking. He dropped out of high school to start a band with his best friend Riley and has been pursing his dream ever since. Music is Billy’s passion. He loves Anna, but fears not being able to take care of her because of his music dream. He is what most would call an unlikely hero.

RILEY Drummer – late 20s, Athletic build. Best friends with Billy since childhood. He’s rowdy, likes to party and fight. Riley grew up with an abusive father. Although he appears confident, it’s a facade. He views himself as a loser. He looks to music as his only chance of leaving his hometown and making something of himself.

JESSE Bass – Early 20s, Naive, skinny, shoulder length hair and a beard. Jesse isn’t a leader; he’s the newest member of the band, but really looks at Riley and Billy as older brothers. Music is his hobby and one day plans on traveling the world and settling down to become a lawyer. Jesse is an all around good guy.

TIM Backup Singer and Lead Guitarist – Mid 20s, Good looking and comes from money. He’s constantly in competition with Billy and is secretly in love with Anna. He thinks he’s quite the charmer, he has a nice guy appeal to him, but has hidden motives. He plans on starting a solo operation soon.

JENNY Groupie – Mid 20s – A free spirit and not looking for anything serious. She goes where the wind blows her. She grew up in a small town. She likes Riley, but will settle for any one of the band members.

SUPPORTING:

CECILE Late 50s, grandmotherly in nature. She and her husband Walter have been through a lot in their years together. She lost her only daughter when she and Walter were younger.

WALTER Late 50s, quiet and weary. He feels responsible for the death of his daughter and has spent the extent of his life trying to reconcile the loss.

JUAN DIEGO Latino, Late 30s, unfaithful husband, married to Esperanza.

ESPERANZA Latina, late 30s. Once upon a time she and Juan Diego were madly in love, that is until they decided to start a family, and after continuously trying, discovered that Esperanza was unable to bear children. This was devastating news to the couple and, over time, Juan Diego became distant from his wife and would spend weeks at a time away working. When Esperanza discovers that not only is her husband having an affair, but that his mistress is also pregnant, Esperanza becomes enraged and seeks revenge.

RING MAN Late early 50s, tall, intimidating and weathered. (Bad Guy)

DRIFTER 1 Late 40s, works for the Ring Man. (Henchman)

DRIFTER 2 Late 40s, works for the Ring Man. (Henchman)

FORTUNE TELLER Female, 50s – 70s , Sweet yet eccentric woman who has a grandmotherly nature to her.

nearly two million viewers for its Sunday premiere. The NM production, garnering rave reviews, airs on WGN and is available on Hulu Plus. Catch a rebroadcast of premiere tonight at 8 pm on WGN. See the channel locator on Twitter.

Santa Fe is trying to get The Bachelor to film here…$500,000 to shoot city offering $100,000. What are your thoughts?

Meanwhile…The Messengers is CASTING NOW, we’re anxiously awaiting word on Longmire 4 announcement, Saul will be here through at least October and NBC’s The Night Shift will be back…to shoot its second season, set to air next Spring/May 2015.

TWO, count ’em TWO major cable network television pilots headed to NM (unofficially)!

“Stanistan” is a USA Network Comedy/Drama Pilot which follows the staff at the American Embassy in the Middle Eastern country as State Department workers, covert CIA officers and journalists strike a delicate balance of danger and absurdity.

The AMC Comedy pilot for “We Hate Paul Revere” is set in Boston, focusing on two brothers who are comically anti early American industrialist & Patriot Paul Revere, starring Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner.

Sidebar: Actual civil unrest in the middle east has lead production of the USA Network drama, “Dig” starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche to relocate to NM from Israel. The show is about the FBI investigating a murder in Jerusalem. – Local casting info. to follow.

OHI is excited to announce that two esteemed locals are on the roster to produce the upcoming indie “Bare”. Chad Burris and Mateo Fraizer are producing along with Alexandra Roxo and Christopher J. Scott. The film, directed by Natalia Leite is about a young girl living in Nevada who starts a complicated relationship with a female drifter who introduces her to a darker world and forces her to grow. “Bare” will star Imogen Poots, Riley Keough, Dianna Agron, Chris Zylka, Paz de la Huerta and Rachel Korine. MUCH more to come on this one!

Bonus bit: Another hot indie wraps this weekend, but not before one of its stars posted plenty of “from the New Mexico set” pics on her Instagram, here’s a little gallery of Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting on location filming “Burning Bodhi” in NM!

The independent feature, “Season of Starlings” will be holding a live stage read of the ghost movie/bloodless horror film, in Madrid New Mexico. Now casting ages 10 -20, for the August 14 read. Awesome experience and resume builder! Here is the casting call!

BONUS CALL: Toska Productions is casting a short film in Albuquerque. Paid/non-union, LGBTQ and/or people of color, get the hotlink here.

This weekend:
Saturday Sen. Al Franken will be holding a street rally 10am – close, on Sierra St. south of Central on Nob Hill. Meet & greet him, with some food & entertainment. No worries – “This is not a fundraiser”.

Saturday AND Sunday THIS charity photoshoot is not to be missed! Amazing multi-purpose photos you can treasure forever and/or use to land your first or next role in a New Mexico production! Andrea takes gorgeous photographs and for a crazy low price you can have 100 pics to fill your portfolio or jump start your headshot gallery! DO IT! AND you’ll be helping out local homeless children with their back-to-school supplies. Cant’ beat that!
