Concept: Last year I started a portrait project incorporating classic monsters in a similar style to the Seven Deadly Sins photos in my portfolio. Pin-upy, high contrast, dark and sexy.. with the exceptions of using full sets (some staged, some outdoor) instead of the plain black backdrop and incorporating male models. Unfortunately my schedule became too hectic to finish shooting before the Album release of a client that I was doing a rather extensive release package for.. This project lends itself to being released for Halloween, and last year there just wasnât any time. I would like to continue work on this series to be released Halloween 2009. (yes, there will be that much work on my part) These shoots will be more like video shoots shot with a still camera, and involve âsilent actingâ more than just posing. The photos will end up being organized into a Graphic Novel, which will be sold to the public. (I will be shopping for a publisher so anyone with those types of connections is more than welcome to contact me).
I am casting for following scenes:
Ghost-Female, Mourner- Male - Cemetery
Mummy- Female, petite with olive complexion, Indiana Jones-esque Character â Male, able to rock a 5 oâclock shadow - Temple or âJungleâ Setting
Dr. Frankenstein- Male, Frankenstein's Monster- Female, the taller the better - Mad Scientistâs Lab
Vampires- One Female, One Male, pale with light eyes, Victim- Female - Alleyway
Werewolves- One Female, One Male also able to rock a 5 oâclock shadow â Large Cage or Cell âif I cast this in time, ESP!!
Witches- Two Female, Conjured Man- Well built Male, you will be shirtless - Forest or Cottage Setting
Possessed Human/Demon- Female, Exorcist- Male - Bedroom or Hospital Room Setting
Animated Corpses- One Female, One Male, both pale and very thin- Morgue
Locations: I am based out of the suburbs of Harrisburg PAâ¦ so most will be local to me. However, I am more than willing to organize a road trip or two for the right location. Until a shoot is officially scheduled, Iâm open to location suggestionsâ¦ especially if they kick ass.
Compensation: Models can be compensated in one of two ways. A) Join the project free of charge and receive a CD of all the final shots that you are in when the project is complete. In short: TFCD. B) Pay a Team Contribution of $50 or more and receive royalties from the sale of the book (percentage increases with amount of contribution and will be agreed upon before shooting).
Makeup/Wardrobe: I am also looking for one or more makeup artists, hair stylists, wardrobe stylists, set designers, and prop coordinators to assist me. The same compensation rules apply to these âbehind the scenesâ contributors although percentages will be higher if you are assisting with multiple shoots. I already have concepts for all characters and some costumes and props but I am willing to collaborate and compromise with the rest of the team.
TEAM: I have several other projects in the works (see casting calls) and I am very loyal to people that I have enjoyed working with before. Iâm not looking for anyone with a Diva complex please.. I am interested in building a creative teamâ¦ not a one man/woman showâ¦ I am very professional with my work- please donât confuse laid back with unprofessional. That being said, I like to have fun on my shoots.. there will be a reasonable amount of joking around and rock-type music on most shootsâ¦.
Please feel free to contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the project or with any and all questions.
