s Note:
The film is verite style. No traditional script, but a very, very thorough outline. The actors will be givencues and very clear direction within tight parameters set forth for each scene that they would improvise [so naturalperformers trump classically-trained thespians]. It will be in the single-shooter style so the key is that the actor has thatkind of personality that lends itself to self-filming and a natural desire to comment on things and share their thoughts.Since it is of the “found footage” genre we actually prefer unknown actors. Think neo-Hitchcockian, not Roger Corman.

Each film has the same cast description:
[DIRECTOR] Male, 25-35 years old. The new “it” guy. The fashion world loves him. So does Hollywood. Extremelytalented and he knows it. In other words, he
s cocky.
For the English version, he could be British or French 
...LEAD[DP] Male, 33-43 years old. DIRECTOR
S half-brother; the oldest in the group. Used to be a respected warphotographer and documentary cameraman but fell on hard times and now primarily works for DIRECTOR. Veryintense. Intellectual. Serious. He gave DIRECTOR his first break on a music video for a then unknown pop group.Once the band hit super-stardom, so did the DIRECTOR. DP thinks DIRECTOR only hires him out of sympathy.
For the English version, he could be British or French 
…LEAD[MAKE-UP ARTIST] Female, 25-35 years old. DP
s wife. Down-to-Earth, understated, hip. She doesn
t have to work atit, she
s just naturally cool and fun. Very concerned about DP; he used to drink a lot and do drugs and now that he
shitting a career low she worries he may return to the heavy stuff…LEAD[MS. PERFECT] Female, 18-25 years old. A model, she is serious, judgmental, but also a “good person.” she is asought-after model, which is a tad ironic since she doesn
t look at herself as a model, per se. Her goal is to use themoney she earns to pay for culinary school…LEAD[SASSY] Female, 18-27 years old. A model. Total attitude, street smart. Tough as nails and sexy as hell. If she likesyou she
ll charm the pants off of you. If she doesn
t, she
ll rip you to shreds with just a look. Her father was a drunk; hermother raised her and five siblings on a nurse
s salary…LEAD[NAIVE] Female, 18-27 years old. A Model. Cute, innocent and funny but incredibly naïve. She comes from a smalltown where her father is the sheriff, just like his Daddy was, and his Daddy
s Daddy. Having lost her mother at a youngage, she is extremely close to her father. All heart. Because of this, a lot of people think she
s dumb…LEAD[TAGALONG] Female, 18-27 years old. A model. Looks up to SASSY; emulates her to the point of letting SASSY
sopinions supersede her own. She turned to modeling after injuring herself trying out for the Junior OlympicSynchronized Swimming Team, something she wants no one to know about. Hipster, poser, tough-hick-wannabe
breast and back will be shown in a scene in bed and a scene in a hot tub
Pleasestate in your self-taped audition that you are willing to do nudity…LEAD[BRO] Male, 18-27. A Model. Athletic, slick and a pretty boy, he is the only male model in the group. He can be quitethe gentleman if he wants to be, when you aren
t absorbed staring at his perfect body. BRO is very into Zen-living buthe
s such a metro-sexual it
s hard to take him seriously…LEAD[ASSISTANT] Male, 21-35 years old. He can be that fun-loving chubby guy, totally camp fashionista, or just plainhilarious. As long as he embodies the vain sexually charged bisexual jet-set wiseass funnyman. He is the comic reliefof this group…LEAD[OLD DRIVER] Male, 65 years old. A great storyteller and tour guide. Fatherly. Smiling all the time; but also physicallyand mentally strong…SUPPORTING
