Outer Banks-Produced Horror Film ‘Boy!’ Casting Call for Adult Male
The award-winning creators behind the locally filmed featurette Lost In Buffalo City are preparing to scare audiences once again with their next film Boy!, a psychedelic-inspired horror film which will be produced and filmed locally in Dare, Tyrrell, and Hyde counties, and we have a new casting call seeking an adult male character actor to play a prominent role, in addition to other roles also available.
The producers are currently seeking…
Character: “Farmer” – Male, age late 40s – early 70s, for the key speaking role of a healthy Eastern NC farmer. This role requires a minor choreographed physical altercation that results in the character to roll down an embankment.
Availability: Scenes to be filmed in Columbia, NC on over a weekend (two days) TBD, sometime in late March through end of April. This is intended as a non-paying role, but is open to interested SAG-AFTRA actors under the “Ultra Low Budget” pay scale.
Contact: Email head shot, resume, acting reel, and contact information, to [email protected] by March 10, 2018. Producers will contact those parties selected for an on camera audition to be scheduled at a later date.
As previously reported, the production is also currently seeking a male actor between the ages of 13 and 17 for the speaking role of the delinquent victim known as Kid, as well as three to five male actors between the ages of 9 and 11 for several non-speaking victim roles.
The crew is also in search of an American classic sedan with a large trunk, that can be rented or loaned to the production for several weekends.
Actors and interested car owners are encouraged to email Raymond Wallace at [email protected] with their headshots, resumes, acting reel, photos, and contact information by March 3, 2018. The producers will contact those parties selected for an on camera audition that will be scheduled at a later date.
Boy! follows the story of a man cursed to be the errand runner for an ancient evil spirit. It haunts and tortures his every waking moment until he delivers its latest victim. But is his torment real, or is the true evil all in his head?
“Boy! plays on the madness and fears of loneliness and addiction, all set in the picturesque creepiness of rural North Carolina where I grew up.” says Stuart Parks II.
Written by and starring Parks, a prominent actor in Theatre of Dare fan favorites such as Spamalot and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Boy! will be directed by Raymond Wallace and produced by his Manteo-based Rayolight Productions.
“I think that the experience and success of Lost In Buffalo City proved to us that the Outer Banks is a viable area for filmmaking. We’ve got the talent, the locations, and the stories that audiences are interested in all right here in one place. So I’m thrilled to be creating another project here, and I can’t wait to share this terrifying tale with audiences” says Wallace.
“We’re excited to create a locally made project,” says Wallace, “and see it as an opportunity to share an entirely different side of the Outer Banks with the world.”
