JENNIFER AJEMIAN CASTING
CASTING CALL for VERMONT LOCALS for STORMCHASER
Project info Project title: STORMCHASER Contract: SAG-AFTRA Ultra-Low Budget Film Agreement Rehearsal/Shoot rate: ULB scale

Start date: 6/24/18 Production period: 6/24/18 - 7/2/18 Shoot location: Southern Vermont (Manchester / Bennington / East Arlington / Dorset / Rutland)

Synopsis Bonnie is a door-to-door ‘door’ saleswoman in the drowsy town of Shamrock. Down-on-her-luck and up against a recession — the harder she chases a sale, the faster doors slam in her face. Her boss, Flip, doesn’t believe in the recession and rallies his young bucks into a frenzied battle cry. After being publicly shamed, Bonnie rekindles her childhood passion with the help of a colleague, giving her the confidence to close her first deal. But when Flip pulls a bait-and-switch to avoid paying her commission, Bonnie challenges him, sending Flip into a rage as fierce as the approaching storm. Determined to prove herself, Bonnie races toward it — blind to the internal storm that’s chasing her.

Note regarding story The film is sardonic cultural commentary — enacting the struggles of the Old ‘Merica and culture of entitlement versus the changing face and struggles of a New diverse America. The film also touches upon corporate greed and environmental issues that are critical to America today and our future.

Notes to talent ● SAG and non-SAG actors can apply ● If you are not already a Vermont resident, you must be willing to be a Vermont local hire. Please note in your submission where you are based. ● Story takes place in the town of Shamrock in Middle America (a backwater town). ● All roles must be portrayed with a neutral midwestern accent.

Roles we are seeking

[YOUNG BONNIE BLUE]. Female. 13-15 yrs old. Caucasian. Blue eyes. A true 13-15 year old. Petite and feminine, but has a tomboyish quality to her (1 scene, no lines). Must be a VT local hire.

[BONNIE’S FATHER]. Male. 40 yrs old. Caucasian. A strapping man with (preferably) blue eyes. Bonnie’s passionate midwestern father who taught her how to chase storms. We see him in a flashback (1 scene, no lines). Must be a VT local hire.

[COUSIN RICK]. Male. Mid 20s. Caucasian. A younger carbon copy of his boss Flip Smyth. Has brown hair and brown eyes. After closing a high-end deal, “Slick Rick” is a rising star at Flip-Sliding. He plans his work, works his plan, and sells like hell. (3 scenes, 7 lines). Must be a VT local hire.
[YOUNG SALESMAN]. Male. Early 20s. Caucasian. A small town, eager to please salesman, with a boyish energy. Works at Flip-Sliding, and is one of many who have bought into the boss’s ‘bait and switch’ philosophy. (3 scenes, 3 lines). Must be a VT local hire.
