Casting call 12/7/13!

Attention all aspiring actors! I'm looking to cast a handful of actors for my new short film, Freakquency. https://www.facebook.com/freakquencythemovie

Freakquency is a drama with a hint of sci-fi which focuses on a young woman, Rose, coming of age in her modeling career while trying to keep her emotions under control in fear of unleashing her inner power of destruction. 

This is my first time writing and directing a film. I have a strong background in all things multimedia. I've been a professional photographer for 8 years now and also have experience in filming, editing and special effects. I need a strong cast that shares my vision and wants to create something great. The runtime of

Freakquency will be 7 minutes. The goal is to enter the film in 4 Sacramento film festivals starting in February 2014 first premiering with the California Film Foundation. www.californiafilm.net

There will be 4 locations where this will be filmed. The majority of the filming will be held in Sacramento at the APS Graphic Center, December 21.

Contact Director, Matt Salvo at 916-947-7066 or matthewsalvo@gmail.com (preferred) for details and screenplay requests. If interested in acting roles, please read character descriptions and email me a current photo of yourself. 

Meet me in person at the Speed Casting auditions held by Mosaic Acting Studio December 7 at 1:00 p.m. at The Graphic Center 3925 Power Inn Rd. at 14th Ave, Sacramento. Look for my Freakquency table.
