“Free in Deed,” an official client of the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission, is looking for professional production crew members and cast.
The low-budget indie feature film is based on a true story about the struggles of a young single mother without resources and the trials and tribulations of a man of faith and his church community who together attempt to heal her 8-year-old autistic son.
Production takes place from the end of January through February.
Paid professional crew positions and unpaid internships are available.
Put “Production crew” on the subject line of the email.
Various roles are available.
A key role will be for an African-American boy age 8-14 to play a major part as a severely autistic, non-verbal child who can at times act violently. No acting training or experience necessary.
African American men, women and children of all ages.
Caucasian men and women from 30-50.
A Caucasian boy, 5 years old.
An adult Indian male.
We will consider all kinds of people: actors, non-actors, pros, real people, all ages (infant to elderly), types, shapes, sizes, styles.
Put “Casting” on the subject line of the email.
There will be informational meetings on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 1, 3 and 5 p.m. Please attend whether you want to be in either cast or crew.
The meetings will be at LeMoyne-Owen College, 807 Walker, Gibson-Orgill Mathematics & Science Learning Center.
