Actors Needs for New Murder Mystery Web Series

I'm working on a new web series called Green Vespers. It's 8 pilot episodes that form a "pilot season" about a secret society based in Capitol Hill that has organized all of the riots and power changes within the city's history since the 1960s. They have done so with little notice except from one hell-bent detective, Detective Dandy, that has worked this whole career to expose them. After Detective Dandy catches them witnessing a murder, each episode interviews one member of the Green Vespers. What the audience sees is flash backs of what happened. What the viewer hears either lines up with what they are seeing, or doesn't proving the character is lying. Make sense?

I am looking to fill the following roles:

Detective Dandy: 40s+ African American man who knows DC like the back of his hand. Black Tom Hanks meets cunning detective. 

Constanza Luz: 20s to 30s Latina women who is determined, quick to react, and is always one step ahead.

Minor Gaines: Mid-20s/Mid 30s African American deaf man who is extremely intelligent. The real eyes behind the operation. Knows that power comes at a price, but needs excitement in his life. 

Two African American Boys, ages 8-12. One is for a flash back of walking through Meridian Hill Park. The other is mistaken to be Detective Dandy's son. 

Extras: For various flash backs. Very low commitment (we'll have your scenes done in less then 15 minutes). 

 

Contact me ASAP because we start shooting August 2nd.

Casting Call

The DIY Network's I Want That is back and is currently casting homeowners in the Washington D.C Metro Area.

I Want That is a fast-paced tour through the latest and greatest home and garden products. From smart appliances, hardware gadgets and tools to home finishings and the newest products for your pets, cars and gardens, there is something for everyone on I Want That! This series earns its unique, authentic DIY flavor by featuring real homeowners demonstrating these products in their home. In most cases you will get to keep the product that you demonstrate.

The casting team is seeking enthusiastic, clear-spoken homeowners who can breathe life into the products featured on I Want That. Fully-finished homes (or rooms) and homeowners with flexible weekday schedules will distinguish a casting application. Some basic home improvement experience is required. Homes within 30 minutes driving time from downtown Washington D.C. will be strongly considered.Please keep in mind, this is not a renovation show and we do not make-over homes or entire rooms.

Please include at least one picture of you and your family. Great garages, workbenches, and "man-caves" are always in short supply, so if you got it, let us see it! 

  4) Please be aware that we usually need three or four individuals to demonstrate products on each shoot day. If you do not have three to four adults in your home, please consider asking neighbors, friends or family members to demonstrate products on shoot day. During the casting process we will ask for photos of any person scheduled to appear on camera. 

  5) Include your family name and city of residence in your email subject line. For example: The Brown Family - Rockville MD.
 

*** It is monetarily unpaid BUT we do usually allow the participants to keep one of the products they demonstrate. Additionally this is a good resume builder for those interested in the media field.
