About the Film & Roles
Call for the Following Roles for HEIDI, a children's story, to be shot mostly in northern MI, but also a few other MI locations. The film will be released in theaters. This is non-union and unpaid at this time. We will be seeking investors and some roles may be converted to paid roles. Credit, DVD/Reel and Publicity are assured. Additional Calls for other roles will be made in the future. See the Role/Character descriptions below.
Casting for the Following Characters:
HERR SESEMANN, CLARA'S FATHER - SUPPORTING Male Caucasian 35 - 55
Smart and successful, Herr Sesemann travels a great deal on business, but when he is home he takes pleasure in and dotes on his only child, a daughter who is confined to a wheelchair. Father is trim and, perhaps, is greying at the temples.
PETER, a YOUNG MALE GOATHERD - SUPPORTING Male Caucasian 9 - 12
Peter is the goatherd who takes the goats up the mountain every day to graze and brings them down again. Peter is a lonely boy, who makes friends with Heidi and is very jealous when she cannot come up on the mountain with him.
ORGAN GRINDER BOY - SUPPORTING Male Caucasian 9 - 12
The Organ Grinder is a spunky boy of the street who helps his family by entertaining folks with his hand organ music and his little dog, Leo. He shows Heidi the way around Frankfurt and expects to be well paid for his effort.
Here is an example of what we are looking for in a Headshot, Bio and Resume page. It doesn't have to be just like this, though. You can use any word processor to create this, even Google Docs. Don't worry if you don't have this much experience or if the bulk of your experience was in student productions. Just BE HONEST and you'll be OK!
For those of you who have not worked in film or on the stage yet, we would still like to see a resume of your artistic experience, and because we work in the visual arts, some video (reel) of your work. Even if you use a smart phone. Make it your best work (a monologue or scene from a movie), put it up on YouTube, and send the link to the email address above. Thank you.
Please Note: Obviously we can't cast, train or place on the crew everyone who submits to us. But don't let your fears or inexperience stop you from submitting to us. How do you know that you weren't born for such a time (and project) as this?
