Description

Casting two dancers for our short dance film, SEEN.

We are scouting for two cis, trans or non-binary women who are open to shooting outdoors. Dancers will be dressed in warm attire and shoes as part of wardrobe. The style and level of dance is intermediate contemporary/modern, with a higher focus placed on the connection between the two dancers rather than the dancing itself. For this reason, any acting experience is a huge plus. Dancers who already work together in a group or company are encouraged to apply together as well.

Our composer has created a beautiful piano and cello score that will be finished very soon! We’re excited to share the music and talk more about the story with any interested applicants. Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to audition for our project. Please don’t let the production dates deter you if you are interested but unavailable during those times. We are committed to prioritizing our dancer’s availability with our team’s flexibility.

Production Info

THE PRODUCTION:
The film will be a duet between two women and will take place at an empty beach along the southern Oregon coast. Ideally scouting for dancers in Portland or the PNW region as we will be offering travel reimbursements, but please apply regardless. We hope to shoot early to mid August, or early to mid September depending on availability of key participants. The shoot will be two half days with a pay of $500, IMDb credit, and attendance to any film festivals we’re admitted into.

THE STORY:
A woman discovers another woman standing lifeless on a beach and uses movement art to resurrect her. Together they share and explore a creative connection, but only for so long as the standing woman begins to fade back into the unseen.

Compensation/Fee

$500 plus travel reimbursement, accommodations, imdb credit, and film festival attendance.
