SYNOPSIS:

When an expert fighter pilot is shot down, it will take more than her laser pistol to evade her alien pursuers.

CHARACTERS SOUGHT:

Echo

Gender: Female

Age: 25-35

Requires: Profanity, prosthetic makeup application, hand-to-hand choreographed combat

Echo pilots the “Weapon Wing”, the back-pocket weapon of the human army. Her scars from space debris are outweighed only by the scars of what she’s seen, and what she’s about to do.

General Thaddeus Silver

Gender: Male

Age: 50-60

General Silver would give his last breath to repel the invading alien army, and very well might. He’s two scotches from death, but you’d never know it.

NOTES:

In addition to 5 days principle photography, talent should remain flexible for working in:

1 day wardrobe/makeup screen tests

2 days table read/blocking

1 day stunt choreography/rehearsal

1 day ADR recording

Reshoot days on case-by-case basis

Cast is required to stay overnight on location during Aug 24-26 principle photography days. Transportation, meals, and shared lodging at location provided. No monetary compensation. Completed film will be distributed via online streaming services to include Amazon Prime and YouTube, with the secondary option of submission to film festivals.

Looking forward to all submissions!
