A paying gig, just down the street in Brooklyn, CT

We at Hollywood in Sturbridge wish there were more movies being made here in Sturbridge Country, but Brooklyn isn't too far, just past Pomfret.

Actually, there's more than one possibility. You have the opportunity to be cast or crew.

We'll let the DP tell you all about it.

From Rajah Samaroo,

The Casting Call:

I'm DP on M.E.S. Production's newest film His Take on Her, a dark comedy short film shooting in early September. We are holding an open casting call at the Brooklyn Coffee And Tea House this Saturday, June 12, 2010 from 1pm until 6pm.

There are four main characters that we are holding auditions for:

Steve late twenties to late thirties, smart, given to quick action. Body type: should be fit, athletic, strong, some stunt work experience desirable.

Elena - mid twenties to mid thirties, talented but a bit pushy. Body type: neither very heavy or very thin. Some experience reading poetry is a plus.

Ronald - late twenties to mid forties, intellectual, a tad pretentious, an ability to speak in a refined, eloquent, and erudite manner is necessary.

Pete - fifties, rough, wiseguy, should have a convincing working class accent.

These parts pay $250.


Steven Bichelle is a talented filmmaker trying to put together his first feature length project with a couple of buddies. Enter Elena Samson a beautiful poet and an aspiring actress. They fall in love but there are complications. Elena appears to be suicidal and one of Steve's buddies is convinced that it's only a matter of short time before she offs herself. To compound matters Elena wants to be in Steve's film but he is very cool to the idea. Can Steve save her, his romance, and his film or will disaster strike?
