Studio PBJ is now casting males and females age 5 to 60 for a short film shooting in Kissimmee, Florida on July 27-28, 2018!
Project Title: “Sideshow”
Synopsis: Curious carnival goers visit an unusual Side Show attraction that claims to house the “King of Kings”.
Director: Barry Cook (Director of Mulan and other credits).
Note: Characters are of no specific ethnicity except for the Senior Hispanic Woman.
CARNIVAL BARKER: (Male or Female – Age 30-60) A seasoned “Carny”. This is the ‘salesperson of the midway’ who delivers the pitch to entice customers to see the show.
TEENAGE BOY: (Age 15-16) Half of a dating couple. The type who loves the big fast rides.
TEENAGE GIRL: (Age 15-16) The Girlfriend. Sweet, not as adventurous as her date.
SENIOR HISPANIC WOMAN: (Age 65-85) A devout Catholic who has made a pilgrimage to the carnival just to see this attraction. Must speak Spanish.
MALE 1: (Age 17-25) Leader of a gang of three ‘Bad boys’.
MALE 2: (Age 17-25) Wise guy/know it all, cracks jokes doesn’t take things seriously.
MALE 3: (Age 17-25) The follower. Considerate but obviously in with the wrong crowd.
CHILD (Alex): (Boy or Girl – Age 5-6) Curious and bright.
DAD: (Male Age 25-35) Sensitive, he is stunned by the attraction and is hesitant to expose his child to it.
COED 1: (Female – Age 17-25) Has a need to know. Studious but not a nerd.
COED 2: (Female – Age 17-25) Just out for a good time. Was probably invited by her friend.
SKEPTIC: (Middle Aged man 45-60). Why this guy is at a carnival by himself is a mystery. Perhaps he’s a outside tradesman who came to do a mechanical repair and was intrigued by the attraction.
TWEEN 1: (Boy – age 12-13) More interested in the Midway food than the rides or attractions. Not easily impressed.
TWEEN 2: (Boy – age 12-13) Really into the Carnival and Sideshow stuff.
