Cast Needed for Exciting Student Film - ODD JOB

Alberta, Canada
Listed by View details

Looking for 7 cast members to join our exciting student short film! COVID guidelines will be enforced on set to ensure safety of the cast and crew (although masks are not required when shooting).

Some roles will require stunts such as running or stunt fighting but that will be outlined in the character description. This film will be premiering in our end of the year Film Festival in August 2021. We look forward to hearing from you!

Storyline: Scott is a twenty-something loser living from odd job to odd job, trying to make a decent living. His immaturity and lack of motivation has left him in a tough spot after an acrimonious breakup with his ex-girlfriend Maddie that he still has not moved on from.
When a strange man named Malcolm offers him $700 to steal a plush dog toy from an empty home, he thinks it will be the easiest gig of his life. Unbeknownst to him, however, the plush dog is actually a secret government weapon with bizarre (and dangerous) powers. A trio of G-men hunt Scott across town, determined to retrieve the mysterious plush toy, leading Scott to ask Maddie for help. As Scott’s day continues to get more dangerous by the minute, he begins to reflect on his personal failings and uses the unusual situation to try and make something of himself... or die trying.
