Special Notes for Potential Cast/Crew: As this is a short film being created to build klout for a feature project in the works and will run in the festival circuit, pay will be minimal in the cash sense, but there are many benefits. We will provide: meals, DVD copy (or digital for reels), screen credit, and deferment. This could be a very great project for someone looking to build an eclectic reel as there will be some great visual effects. We can discuss all this in more detail and negotiate if needed at the audition/call backs. To apply send your headshot, resume, and reels to Prod. Carrie Cates
