Posted by on Sun, Oct 14 2012 at 06:02 PM CDT:


I am casting for my upcoming NYU grad film "The Lipstick Stain." We will be shooting in and around Germantown, NY from Dec. 11-18.

This is a SAG Short film agreement. Actors will be paid $100/day.

Director: Dagny Looper. Casting Director: Sarah Conte. Producer: Apolline Berty. NYU Graduate Film.

The Lipstick Stain is about a young black girl, Addie, who is abandoned by her mother and goes to live with her white father, Dennis, at his funeral home in Arkansas.

Over Christmas Eve dinner, tensions in the family are high when they decide to visit the newly arrived corpses. Dennis - a simple, almost childlike man - decides to play a prank on his stubborn daughter Addie that will change their relationship forever.


ADDIE (7-9) - African American. Recently abandoned by her mother, she resists going to live with her white father.

UNCLE JIM (40s) - Caucasian. Chubby and crass. He gets excited by one of the newly-arrived corpses at his brother's funeral home.

BRADY (6-8) - Caucasian. Uncle Jim's son. Fascinated with dead bodies, like his father.

EMILY (30s or 40s) - African American. Emily shot her husband for cheating on her and then shot herself (NB - To play a corpse that the family visits).

To submit, please include your headshot, resume, and reel (if available).
