'EMILIO' Short Film Speaking Roles Casting Call in Atlanta, GeorgiaSynopsis: After being let go from his job of twenty-plus years, 60 year-old Emilio Hernandez struggles to find a job while undertaking familial pressures at the same time. What We're Looking For: We are interested in working with actors of all types, be they experienced or unexperienced. If the subject matter speeks to you and if the character descriptions compell you, then lets start a dialogue and see if we can collaborate! The goal here with casting these roles is to not only find actors who fit the chracter descriptions, but also to find actors who are all about collaborating to create something that feels honest and truthful. Character Breakdown: Emilio (Hispanic, 50's - 60's) - Given his age and the competitive job market, Emilio's mission to find a job becomes incredibly difficult. As we follow him from job interview to job interview, we see him try his best to convey an image of himself that hides the inadequacies and insecurities that plague him, which proves to be the internal conflict of the story. This role will require the actor to perform scenes in Spanish. Maria (Hispanic, 50's - 60's) - Emilio's wife. She's grown frustrated by her husband's insistence to only pursue "higher end" jobs in order to keep up an image of success as their domestic life crumbles. She's the rational one, the voice of reason. This role will require the actress to perform scenes in Spanish. Job Interviewer (Male, 40's - 50's) - A confident, "alpha dog" type male who interviews the protagonist for a job in Human Resources. The character is written as cold and impatient. Any actor who has a background in management, HR, or any type of corporate background would be encouraged to audition, as I feel it would lend the scene a bigger sense of realism. * Please send your headshot and a short bio to [email protected]. Tell us about yourself and which role your expressing interest in. *Auditions will be held on the weekend of February 27th in Atlanta. Details concerning your audition (exact time and location as well as what to bring) will be sent to you by email. Thanks so much to those of you expressing interest! This is a very personal project that I am passionate about and I look forward to collaborating with artists who share that passion in order to create something special.
