Man - 21-30 year old male, Must be able to play dead well and possibly play happy for flashback scenes.

Contact Well Hung Pictures at wellhungemail@gmail.com or 812 890-5021


Additional notes:
We are looking a for a woman that can really show heartbreak and emotionally falling apart. The actress selling us on the fact that a man she loved is dead will make the film or break it. We're not looking for over the top, just serious falling a part on screen.

The role does not call for any nude or sex scenes. The only thing close would be where she changes her shirt in the parking lot of her job. In the story the character has a bra on.

This should be a one to two day shoot and it is a nonpaying role. If it is a two day shoot we will buy one meal per day and provide a place to stay.

This is a closed set with a lot of the shooting being done in a car or a tight spot we will not have an interest or the space for extra people standing around. Actors would be welcomed to bring a guest but we can not offer them food or allow them to be there for shooting.

This is my Top 10 list of movie you should track down. Some people might have seen some of these movies and others may have watched them all. I dig all of these films and I think they are all worth watching. If you've seen them all (and enjoyed them) that's cool. I'm just trying to spark interest in movies that don't get the attention they deserve.

6. A Perfect Place - A short film written and directed by Derrick Scocchera, starring Bill Moseley (Devil's Rejects) and Mark Boone Jr. (30 Days of Night) with original music by Mike Patton of Faith No More
5. Shade of Grey - Written and directed by Jakob Bilinski (Three Tears on Bloodstained Flesh)
