compensation: Will pay for food and travel expenses.

I'm a screenwriter and director, and a former instructor at the Toronto Film College, Centennial College, and Humber College. My screenplays have placed as finalists in several competitions, including the Nicholl which is run by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I mention all this not to impress, but to make it clear to you that I am for real, and I have dedicated my life to making movies.

I've just completed a screenplay that I have spent the last year working on, and my goal is to make the film this summer. This film is the most compelling story I have ever written. If you care about playing a role that is something people will remember forever, something that will prove your acting talent, this is the role for you.

This story is both highly artistic and marketable, and if you know about film that's a hard combo to get together.

I'm looking for fantastic talent that can appreciate the fact I am operating on a close to zero budget, and that I am sacrificing financially in order to make this film, and that I am investing all my resources and time into this film. I have the exact vision for what I want this film to look like, sound like, feel like, in my head. And of course it's in the script as well.

This is exactly who and what I need right now:

1). An incredible location scout who can match real life locations to those described in the script, and these need to be locations that can be accessed on an insanely super-tight budget.

2) A fantastic cinematographer who can truly see the visual opportunities around him and make the most of everything we have.

3.) A female lead who will star opposite the male lead. This role requires a woman, Caucasian, in her late 20s to early 30s, beautiful, no accent, and who can be 100% believable in the following ways:

She must come across as intelligent as a teacher.
She must be able to show believable (not overacting) dread and terror from something horrible happening to her.
She must be able to show nuances in this situation, including empathy for the person doing this to her.
She must be able to show anger and defiance.
She must OOZE warmth, happiness, and femininity.

She must be able to portray a character who although is living in the present, almost seems to have walked out of the 1970s before social media, feminism, and political correctness.

4) This film is about a very important topic that is also controversial, and I am looking for someone who can work together with me on maximizing publicity for this film in every way-internet, print, television, radio, EVERYTHING.

This is going to be a feature-length film, and the exact distribution strategy for showing this film is still being negotiated. The bottom line is making this film so damn good that it will, at the very least, open massive doors for everyone seriously involved.

As far as pay, I will pay for travel expenses, food, and give you a copy of the project when it's completed. Also, if you are involved on the project almost every day, I will go out of my way to pay you something as a token of my appreciation. It will require several weeks of filming. I'm telling you this upfront because there is no point in playing games. I am sacrificing financially myself and devoting all my time in order to get this film made. Just writing this script has taken every free moment of mine for the past year.

Let me know if you are interested. I can discuss the project in more detail with you if I think you are right for the project.

I will also need several other actors for various other supporting roles, including an elderly, rugged, wise-looking man who plays an inspirational homeless person, several women in their 20s and 30s to play women out on the town on a Saturday night, several men to play police officers, a prison guard, a middle-aged man to play a school principal, a female manager of an expensive clothing store, as well as several extras to play a taxi driver, neighbors watching the scene when police arrive, and other roles for extras as well.
