03-10-11 – New York City, NY>Philadelphia, PA – We are seeking a blind male child ASAP to be cast in the lead role of an NYU graduate student short film called “Light is Like Water”
The film is inspired by a short story by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and revolves around the family-life of a young boy named Alvin.
Alvin is a Male Caucasian, about 11-12 years old and physically blind.
We are looking for the right boy to play the leading role of Alvin. We would like to cast an actual blind child for the role as opposed to a child actor playing a blind character.
Their involvement will help lend an accurate, natural portrayal of the character in the film and would also be an amazing experience to work with the cast and crew on set.
No previous acting experience is required.
