After a long stretch after our 2011 collaboration Gentrified Minds, I am proud to announce that my partner, Nina Fleck, and myself have resumed work on a series of films that are at once personal and political and highly personal. Like poems. Shards of Glass Spindled Tears Broken Dreams a trilogy of short films meditating on the nature of disappointment and endings will be shot and edited in May, 2014. We’ve allowed our approach to “Avant-garde” and experimental films to be highly intimate and informed by our work as poets and theater artists.
Currently we are looking to hire a MALE actor, 50, any race, with a tragic face that can emit a quiet intensity and one capable of expressing without speaking.
Actor must also but must be comfortable interpreting and reading text aloud as you will be recording a poem as a voice-over.
Union and non-union actors.
Email us for more information. One day shoot and voice-over recording in May. Paid. New Media SAG Agreement.
(Note: Year round, we look for actors and actresses; performers who think OUTSIDE the box (or “models” in the Bresson sense) and possess expressive faces who can easily identify with themes of failure, death, memory, injustice, and the desire for hope. A link to the New Poet Cinema project will be published by May 1st when the film is in production.)
