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 

money-making thing.  


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 




Chinese actors:

Major roles (multiple days)

Emmy (20-25 years old)

Ivan (28-35 years old)


Small roles (one day)

Lizav (35-45)

Tan (28-35)

Teddy (34-45)

Lem (28-38)

Registrar (25-55)

Taxi Driver (27-50)

Construction worker 1 and 2 (27-50)

Painter 1 and 2 (20-34)

Guard (32-60)


Western actors:

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.  





Details about the roles:

Emmy is Rask’s Chinese girlfriend.  She is attractive and moody.  A little superficial, but with a good heart. 

Ivan is a laid-back, friendly clerk who works at the police station.

Lizav is the manager of the construction site, he is mild, subdued and exudes authority.

Tan is an assistant at the construction site, he is very friendly and easy-going

Teddy is the chief criminal investigator, he is level-headed and a thinker

Lem is the assistant criminal investigator.  He is hot-headed.

The Registrar is in charge of schedules at the uni.  She is practical. 

Taxi Driver -  Quiet, imaginative

Construction Worker 1 - A bit nervous, energetic, and with a blue-collar look
Construction Worker 2 - Somewhat relaxed and with a blue-collar look 

Painter 1 - Almost too thin, easy-going 
Painter 2 -  Thin, easy-going

Guard - Relaxed, careful, and aware of things.

sounds fun, Xi'an is beyond boring for me so this sounds exciting enough for me to want to be part of. Although am not much of an actoress as I find it hard keeping a straight face through just about anything, plus am not exactly Western or Chinese so can't really play any role. Well, not according to the script atleast. But if you ever need vocals for any other musical productions in the future, i'll be happy to be apart of it. All the best man!
