We are casting roles for reenactment scenes for a short documentary produced in association with Helpmate, a non-profit who helps victims of domestic violence.  The film “Pinky Promise” tells the story of a domestic violence survivor and how she freed herself and her children from an abusive relationship.

All roles are non-speaking parts.  Actors must be able to interact with each other without masks.  We are hoping for a group who is quarantined together.  No experience is required from any of the actors.

How to Audition:

Send a short video with your name, phone number, age and height.  For the adult roles, act out an argument scene.  You can play directly to the camera, or to someone off camera.  Begin as a minor disagreement and quickly escalate to yelling.  What you say isn’t important.  If you need a prompt, it can be an argument about being out with friends when your partner was expecting you to be home.  For the child roles have them do a spin in front of the camera.  Get a shot of them holding out their pinky to give a pinky promise.  Their expression should be neutral or troubled as they hold their pinky out.

We prefer you upload the video to youtube or vimeo as an unlisted or private link and email the link.  If you need to email a file you can do that as well.


Deadline to submit: Friday, September 11th
