Here's a post from the eCallboard from Paul Skidmore on his movie "Stirring."
STIRRING is a long short film (currently the script is 53 pages, so about 53 minutes), and there is now more info up on StirringMovie.com about the story and characters. It's not comprehensive, but it will get you started.
Feel free to e-mail me for more information on it. I'm actually getting a lot of response about the film (which is happily surprising), so it might take me a day or few to get back to you.
Currently the shoot is scheduled for December 7-21, 2005, which is coming up soon. Casting sessions are this weekend and next (12 and 19) from 9am to 4pm. Directions and a link to the map are on the website.
Most of all I should point out that all of the dialogue for the film will be in Russian, so we are needing Russian speakers to fill the handful of lead roles, but we have plenty of roles to fill that have a couple of lines (which could be learned phonetically) or no lines at all. The script has little dialogue, and is told mostly visually, so please don't think that a dialogueless role actually means "extra."
Thanks for everyone's interest! The energy moving behind this film has been delightfully overwhelming and joyously infectious! Hope you're able to come out and be a part of this project with us!
