Hello and thanks for taking the time to learn more about this role for our film project.

We are nearing completion of pre-production for the independant film (which still has a working title) that is set to be released in spring of 2020. It requires one of the lead roles to be replaced. We had a last minute conflict of schedules.
The film is going to be shot this summer and will be a feature length.

This role is the only paid role due to its complexity.

The female character has been sentenced to death by hanging and appears in just over 20 pages of script however she has very few lines. 8.5 pages of the script are the hanging scene.

This stunt has been very carefully planned and many safety implementations will be involved including but not limited to harness work and other green screen shots to eliminate cables and wiring.

The sequence will be extremely intense as the "hanging" goes "wrong" in the film.
The actor will need to be in relatively good/athletic shape since she will be suspended in mid air on a gallows and the actor will need to not be afraid to have a safety noose around her neck for possibly 20-30 minutes at a time. She will also be shackled hand and foot with prop shackles.

Depending upon experience the role starts at $950.00 for the full shoot. The role will take about 2-3 days of shooting.

For anyone interested please email headshots AND experience/resume to the email as listed below. Technically no acting experience is needed but of course the more experience the better with the intensity of the scene.
We will then process all applications and begin auditions after further discussion with each applicant who has the look and experience we like.

Between 20-60 years old with any hair color but nothing too bright or loud (pinks, oranges or blues are a no go...sorry however wigs may be an option). Visible tattoos are okay. Any height or weight is just fine. (This charactor is the lead actor's portrayal of herself in her broken mind.)

Thank you for your interest in our exciting new film project and we hope to hear from you soon!
