for an experimental short film
May 7th, 2013
I'm an interdisciplinary artist looking for 2-3 actors, 1 audio person, and 1 video person for a short, experimental, narrative work-in-progress. Ideally, we will shoot about 5 remaining scenes end May/early June, in rural Minneapolis at a country house and a barn. I'm looking for artists, experimentors, collaborators.
- 2 daughter characters, 12-15yo, and 1 father character - Caucasian - would be great if one family!
- 1 proficient audio person, preferably with own equipment, to record basic dialogue and outdoor sound
- 1 proficient video person, preferably with own equipment, to film and provide cinematographic input
My budget is modest--I got a very small grant last year that I'm really trying to stretch to cover a few things. I'd like to find like-minded people interested enough in the project to accept a small daily fee of about $100 for 2-3days of work and not charge extra for their own equipment, though I'm prepared to rent if need be--and I do have access to equipment through an organization where I'm taking a filmmaking class.
This is a spare and amateur production, but an interesting project I think. Briefly, the project is called A Purity Ball, and ultimately it will be combine this short video with a staged production. In a way, it's about "outsiders' fantasies of the mainstream." It presents a main character in love with a dad and daughters as they're about to go to "a purity ball." It draws out the relationship between a romanticized notion of their world, and an opposite world of art, presented through an encounter with another character's bizarre performance in a barn. The main character is stuck inbetween, desiring impossible membership to one world, and relegated to the other as an outsider. And... there's more. Just wanted to throw out a dense description of some sort here, to pique interest...
If you're interested in this little venture, please be in touch.
Thanks for reading~
