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 “Kelda’s Courage” tells the true story of a domestic violence survivor and how she freed herself and her son from an abusive relationship.

All roles are non-speaking parts.  Actors must be able to interact with each other without masks. Crew is fully vaccinated.

How to Audition:

Send head shot and a short video with your name, email address, phone number, age and height.  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, your facial expressions and body language are what we are examining.  If you need a prompt, it can be an argument about being out with friends when your partner was expecting you to be home.

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 as an attachment you can do that as well.


Deadline to submit: Friday, July 16th
