2) LEADING LADY. Any ethnicity. Age: 30-young 60s. Any body type.
Likeable, personality plus, outwardly expressive, fierce. Body language, subtle nuances, eye contact and speaking with your eyes are key. Must be able to take a common, everyday occurrence and make it progressively funny through your actions.
Send self-taped auditions (up to 2 min each) of yourself making a common activity hilarious. NO VULGAR COMEDY. You’ll give yourself an edge if you have a partner to play tit-for-tat with bc you will have a counter-part in the film to outdo. I’m looking for creativity, humor, wittiness. Remember, no dialogue or implied dialogue.
This is a modern-day silent film.
3) SUPPORTING MAN. Any ethnicity. Age: 25-40. Any body type.
