*COMPENSATED* Non-Union roles and positions for six-episode Web/TV Series shooting in January-March, 2020
Featured and Background roles available - MULTIPLE CREW POSITIONS OPEN!
Skyphire Entertainment, a new and independent film production company, is excited to announce additional casting and OPEN CREW POSITIONS for its debut web/TV series titled “CAMISADO: The Event Series”.
Set against the backdrop of intrigue and raw emotion, “Camisado” is a suspenseful drama about loss, the struggle to desire for revenge, and how one woman rises from the ashes of unspeakable tragedy to become an unlikely force to be reckoned with. While heavy with timely action, high drama, and dynamic characters, “Camisado” is unique in how it presents the characters – particularly the main character and her wife (yes, we said her wife).
Within the “Camisado” universe, characters are depicted as strong, independent, and confident in who they are. The main character is married to a retired military woman who has been recruited to work for a logistics company in her retirement from service. None of the characters in this series, in their interactions with these women, ever reference their relationship status – there’s no bigotry or malice based on sexual orientation, ethnicity, or gender of our characters.
This is done as an underlying message to extol the virtue of inclusion, and to paint a hopeful future for society as a whole. Too often in today’s cinema, single-sex relationships or people of various ethnicities are stereotyped, comedized, or otherwise misrepresented. To present strong characters who are recognized as such by others for who they are – instead of what they may be labeled as – has been a goal of ours since we began filmmaking in 2009.
Casting is open to anyone within the appropriate age-range of the character.
Since this is a fictitious story with no historical context, our characters were written to be performed by the actor or actress who is best suited for the role – regardless of ethnicity.
OPEN CASTING & CREW CALL
We are not limiting ourselves to the “industry standards” when it comes to everything we do at Skyphire Entertainment.
This notice is deep with details on purpose: too often, actors and crew are left asking innumerable questions about a production, and we aim to answer anything you could possibly want to know about us and our aims.
Our breakdowns contain what our vision may be. But we stress this very important point: make this your own. We want actors and crew who can become the character (not act like the character) and take charge when given direction. Use your own experiences and the information provided to bring what's on the script to life!
We will answer every email or complete submission that is sent to us. This is very important to our company: everyone deserves a response. Even if you may not join us on this particular project, we will have many more where you may be better suited. We will be building a true network of talent from all walks of life, so feel free to submit even if you don’t think you’re “perfect” for a role or a crew position.
Finally, we are aware that there is also a negative connotation behind the “webseries” moniker, as many before us have tried to do similarly without much success. Please read on for why we feel we have many advantages over others who have gone this route.
THE MISSION: BUILD A FOUNDATION
Package the six-episodes as an on-demand Event Series hosted on a YouTube channel with over 350,000 subscribers.
With hard work and dedication to producing high-quality content, we aim to grow a loyal audience who may support or pay for future work created within the “Camisado” universe.
Engage with potential influencers in the film and entertainment industries to further spotlight the series.
We will engage in marketing to even more potential viewers and influencers through Facebook and Instagram advertising. As well, we will keep our viewers engaged throughout with special behind the scenes features, podcasts, interviews with cast and crew, and other content.
After analyzing the initial run, we will look at packaging “Camisado” for film festival or other ‘contest’-like entries.
With a solid base of viewership behind us, we feel we would have a leg-up on other productions in many areas, including the potential for film festivals and other contests.
This is a Non-Union production. However, SAG-AFTRA-E and FiCore performers, as well as any Trade professionals, are welcome to apply for any role or position.
Shooting will take place in Raleigh, NC and in nearby areas. Some filming may take place outside the greater Raleigh area. We will provide updates as needed.
Everyone must sign a “Release Agreement” to participate in this project. These are binding agreements that guarantee the delivery of promised items and serve to protect us from potential misuse of project documents.
We are excited and looking forward to working with many highly talented and highly driven people who have a purpose and know what they want from life.
We strongly reiterate the importance of reading everything given to you about this project.
We know it’s more than you’re used to – that’s the point! We want to be 100% transparent with you about every aspect of this project because it’s truly a total team effort (there are no "i's" on our set!). We want you engaged every step of the way through this process.
