SHORT SUPERNATURAL HORROR

CASTING CALL

We are excited to begin production on our latest film venture. ‘CRADLE OF MINE’ is a short horror pilot/concept that we are producing with the intention of garnering enough attention to further produce it into a feature film. The production will take place over 2 days in the Midlands area, and all roles are PAID.

 

The project will be directed by Daniel Alexander Films with the intention of shooting in September. Due to the goal of the film, we are setting it in an American world, so we can only consider extremely convincing American Accents. 

 

To submit an expression of interest, please read the character descriptions carefully and provide us with a link to a showreel AND/OR video that clearly demonstrates your American Accent. 

 

We ask that all enquires and submissions are sent directly to submissions@danielalexanderfilms.com 

 

Thank you in advanced, we look forward to hearing from you soon.
