Calling all defenders of a galaxy far, far away: Halifax director David Connellan
is looking for several actors to fill various roles for a locally shot Star Wars
fan film at an open casting session on Saturday, April 2, at the Sobeys Community Room
(2651 Windsor Street, 2pm-6pm).
"The movie will be a five minute-long short that will be entered in the 2016 Official Star Wars Fan Film Awards
," explains Connellan, . "As this is a fan film using copy-written characters and settings, it's not a commercial film. It's an all-volunteer project." The synopsis? "The story is set after the battle of Endor which takes place at the end of Return of The Jedi
. The film is based around Princess Leia and her emotional distress of dealing with being the leader during a long and bloody civil war, and her relationships, especially with Han Solo. This will be a dramatic piece."
As such, Connellan is seeking non-union actors for the following roles:
Princess Leia, female 22-29 lead actor
Han Solo, male 33- 40
Voice Over Actors
Jaba the Hutt
Secondary actors and extras
Various rebel troops and offices
Stormtroopers and Imperials
You can book an audition by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the Halifax Star Wars Fan Film Facebook.
Filming will begin in Halifax this spring. Use the force.
