I’m Aaron Ross, a film student, currently working on a short film going into production next month. The film is a different approach to the modern action film. Rather than cast organization and conspiracies, this film will be looking at a single character, someone who would normally only have a single scene or two in a traditional major action film. Basically it’s about him waiting to get the call to take part in some larger event. I’m looking to cast several roles for this film. The working title is “The Waiting.” The script relays heavily on the ability to convey a mood without words.
The Four characters I’m looking to cast are the following:
Samuel: He’s an American born man in his twenty. After leaving the military he quickly found his way into the world of espionage. His time in the military has made him an expert marksmen and those skills are what he has been hired for. Although he might as well be a contacted killer he doesn’t let his job define him. His patience is tested as he waits for the go ahead to complete a job. While the act of killing isn’t that hard in itself, work has spent him far from his fiancé and love of his life, and that for him is unbearable. Samuel struggles to exist in a role that is almost subhuman. He’s been left in a safe house for days waiting without any control over his own existence.
Daniel: He is a young man with a strong sense of justice and a deep desire to understand. He’s been put onto the scent of a conspiracy if a global scale, and he’ll do anything to bring it to light. He is fast on his feat and a split second decision maker. He lives to out preform and out wit those who would challenge him, but when confronted with a situations outside of his control Daniel is left helpless, no matter how skilled or ambitious he is.
Cyrus: He (or she) is bit older than the others. He could pass for 30s Cyrus spent most of his time in the police for as a detective, but with a high burnout rate, strict protocols, and what often turns into cynical outlook on life, Cyrus like many other wasn’t going to last forever on the force. While not as strong or fast, Cyrus has one advantage over those who get in his way, he’s smart. Cyrus’s mind works like a game of chess, he’s always several moves ahead. Like many of his former brothers and sisters on the force, Cyrus found work with the skills the police has honed. Now working for a private contractor Cyrus and his partner have been assigned to find Daniel, who is attempting to get his hand on sensitive governmental information that’s been leaked.
Caleb: He is partners with Cyrus and the two compliment each other well. Caleb excels in those areas that Cyrus doesn’t. Caleb also is stubborn. He behaves like a hound and never lets go of a scent. When he was told that Daniel was going to try to release sensitive information to the public that was more than enough to get him riled up. He’ll catch Daniel if given the chance. It’s just a matter of time.
If you’re interested in any of these roles or as an extra please contact me. Production will last a few weeks and will require at least two days of shooting for each role. I’m looking to cast this quickly so the sooner you can contact me the better. You can reach me at this email address:
