Casting Call – Angel Fire, New Mexico

Posted by on January 18, 2013 | Comments Off on Casting Call – Angel Fire, New Mexico

6603-Crack-of-DuskPhotograph by JR Compton

Casting for HD Student Short Film “Four hand Bloodstock”, to shoot in Angel Fire, New Mexico.

Production is scheduled for March 05 – 12, 2013

Producer: Mystie Pineda
Writer: Greg Stout
Director: Greg Stout

Synopsis: Four Hand Bloodstock is a landscape film about Sam, who while dealing with the declining health of his wife, June, interacts with the landscape of New Mexico.

Four Hand Bloodstock plays with the themes of time and space through experimental camera work and sound design to express the transitioning moods of the couples’ experience with June’s awaited journey to death. Four Hand Bloodstock makes the landscape a character within the film, giving time and space a story just as much as the characters themselves.

The tone is tranquil with moments of depression and panic. The film has elements that include the history of the New Mexican landscape, the Tigua Indians and Pueblos.

Character Breakdowns:

Sam (early 30s) – is fearful of loosing his wife to a rare bacterial disease. Sam leaves their cabin home to travel across the New Mexican landscape, accompanied by visions of his wife. Sam eventually arrives at a Native American pueblo and performs a death ceremony.

June (early 30s) – has been diagnosed with a rare bacterial infection and as her condition worsens, June becomes more fearful. Her once optimistic views of life are dissolving more quickly than her health.

These are PAID roles in addition to Film Credit, DVD Copy, Meals, Snacks, Beverages and Transportation Provided.

***Email Your Casting Submissions to: fourhandthefilm@gmail.com***

Auditions will be held between 2pm and 8pm on Friday January 25th, 2012 in Studio 4E of the CMB Building on the University of Texas at Austin Campus.
