Have you ever wanted to be in a movie? Here's your chance.
I'm putting together a film project with some friends here in Xi'an. It's not
for fame, it's for fun. The end-result is pretty professional, but it's not a
The film is an adaptation of "Crime and Punishment". There are some
Chinese actors, some American/English actors.
For the Chinese parts, Emmy, Ivan, and Teddy must speak English.
All these roles are for men, except Emmy. We can work around your
schedule. Each 'day' is about 1-2 hours of you being there. Most things
will shoot indoors, near Southgate. We need people who look good on
camera and are reliable. If one person doesn't show up, the whole day
can be lost. So, you need to commit, if you commit. No experience
Major roles (multiple days)
Emmy (20-25 years old)
Ivan (28-35 years old)
Small roles (one day)
Taxi Driver (27-50)
Construction worker 1 and 2 (27-50)
Painter 1 and 2 (20-34)
Natalie (22-36) - Main character's sister
Disaffected Ex-pat (25-45) - New acquaintance of the main actor (male role)
Emmy and Natalie’s scenes will film this month (June), and the other parts will shoot in July.
Please comment if you'd like to be considered for the part. Please upload an appropriate picture. If you are suitable, I will send you the script for your character, and you can decide if you want to do it.
I will post a sample of my work in another post.
