Outer Banks Feature Film Seeking Local Talent For Production
Outer Banks-based Rayolight Productions, the award winning filmmakers behind the independent short films Lost in Buffalo City, Boy, and Night of the Fluffet, is gearing up and seeking local talent for it’s latest project, a feature length high school sports film titled Call Sign Romeo.
“It’s a great homegrown story that will feature numerous area landmarks that Outer Bankers in particular are bound to recognize and appreciate,” says director Raymond Wallace.
Speaking exclusively to OBX Entertainment, Wallace tells us that all COVID-19 protocols and health safety regulations will be adhered to during the production. “Although we’re still working out the specifics of what our COVID-19 protocols will be,” the director said, “we intend to ensure that our production adheres to all local and state COVID-19 regulations and guidelines to help keep our cast and crew as safe as possible.”
According to a press release, the film highlights the story of a high school senior as he navigates his life challenges and strives to land a spot at his college of choice. From his personal relationships, to the battles he faces on the wrestling mat, the film is set to be an action packed and uplifting sports drama that the whole family can enjoy.
“It’s Creed meets Top Gun, set amidst an authentic Outer Banks story,” explains Wallace. “So we’re filming locally with as many local actors and extras as possible, and with what we hope will be a rocking soundtrack sourced from area bands.” With plans for production to begin in March and with filming anticipated to last through May, the production is seeking area locals to help fill a handful of paid supporting speaking roles and serve as background extras. The production is also seeking original recorded music from area bands to set the mood of the film’s action packed wrestling scenes and as it’s soundtrack.
