Indie filmmaker (and Staples alum) (and NYU Tisch film school graduate) Jared Frank shoots “Kingswood” in Westport from June 1 to 3. The film — about the housing crisis, teen angst and the crumbling of the American dream — should be great, despite the bleak theme.
If you’ve always wanted your kid — or your house — to be in the movies, or simply wanted to help out, now’s your chance. Jared needs:
- High school extras (or people under the age of 22 who can pass as high schoolers) to hang out in the garage during a half-day of filming. “Casually alternative-looking boys” go to the front of the line.
- A large barn or garage to shoot in for one day. Ideally, it opens directly onto a cul de sac or large driveway.
- A modest house (one-floor ranch home, for example). This is needed for an exterior shot only ; it will take 30 minutes or so, and the crew won’t set foot inside.
- A high school boy’s bedroom — something with posters hanging on the wall. This is also for 1 shot only (30 mintues).
- A large pantry/liquor closet/wine cellar.
- A hand-me-down beater car big enough to shoot in comfortably. A sunroof is a plus. In a perfect world it would be a rusty, damaged early ’90s Jeep Cherokee.
- Vintage folding beach chairs.
- Beat-up old lamps.
In terms of crew, Jared is looking for production assistants (no experience necessary), makeup and hair people, a still photographer, and someone to help with craft services.
Also needed: housing for the cast and crew (a guest house or extra bedrooms).
