SELF-SCHEDULING

FOR  LORELEI CALLBACKS


This is a schedule for the Lorelei callbacks casting.

About the movie
LORELEI is a feature film shooting Fall of 2018 in Oregon.
Our movie follows ex-biker Wayland as he returns to his High School hometown after 15 years in prison. As the story unfolds he rekindles a relationship with his teenage sweetheart Dolores, now a mother of three, each with different fathers, and must navigate the weight of his past with his  inadvertent role in a newfound family.

We are looking in the Pacific Northwest to find kids to play the children of the lead actress, each important supporting roles in the film itself.

WARDROBE/HAIR/MAKEUP GUIDELINES

KURT: Casual, rough around the edges, perhaps a leather jacket.

DENIM: Attire that appears to be hand-me-downs from an “older sister.”
Examples: a dress, a pink t-shirt with flowers/hearts on it, colorful barrettes, plastic tiara. 

PERI: Attire that appears disheveled and could be from second-hand store/yard sale. 
Examples: tangled hair, chipped nail polish, cheap bangles/hair scrunchies, denim shorts/overall shorts, a discount store t-shirt.

DODGER: Attire that appears second-hand and could be considered “chore clothes.” 
Examples: unshaved upper lip, camo pants/baggy shorts, tatty wife beater, sliders and socks.

PASTOR GAIL: Casual Pacific NW attire with a rural edge

BOBBI: Biker gear or ripped up t-shirt and jeans or leather jacket

ORTIZ/LANE: Casual button down office worker.

GORDIE: Outdoor work outfit, think mechanic

MANAGER: casual work attire, no logos. 

 

Please avoid white shirts if possible.

CHARACTER NOTES:

KURT: President of a small motorcycle club, the Night Horsemen MC; makes a modest living dealing prescription drugs and meth; father of two; tougher on the outside than he is on the inside; a complex mix of kindness and menace; longs for the good old days when crime paid; enjoys good banter and camaraderie, and feels most free when he’s riding his bike. Kurt loves Wayland like a brother, even more so for Wayland’s loyalty to the MC – he’d like Wayland to come back to the club, but he’s willing to let him move on if he needs to.

DODGER: The eldest child in a single parent family, Dodger has been a de facto father figure for his siblings, and is especially protective of the youngest, Denim; he has a fractious relationship with his Mom’s new boyfriend, Wayland; stays in shape and hopes to enlist in the military; like all teenage boys, he experiments with what it means to be a man, vaping and displaying false bravado.

PERI: Spicy, outspoken tween; she can be a tomboy or fairly girly, depending on the circumstances… her tastes are still being formed; has a fraught relationship with her Mom, Dolores, who’s trying to mold her in her image, but whose path she doesn’t want to follow; isn’t scared to challenge authority but has a hidden vulnerability and deep down longs for parental love; and while she may act grown-up sometimes, she’s still just a child.

DENIM: Creative, sensitive, sweet-natured and gentle; prefers dresses to pants and loves things most people would consider ‘girly’; much happier playing with dolls than toy trucks; has a fierce fight with his Mom when she tries to make him wear pants; forges a quick and genuine bond with his Mom’s new boyfriend, Wayland, and forces him to confront whether he’s ready to be a father.
