Casting is underway for the lead role in “The Mission,” a short film about “an imaginative young child with a simple wish [who] spends the day dropping coins into a fountain”—only to find that when the wish is granted, it comes with unexpected responsibilities.
“The Mission” was created as part of the AT&T Shape Short Film Challenge, “an open challenge seeking imaginative, undiscovered short films from talented storytellers across the U.S. who want their voices heard,” according to a release.
The production is currently seeking a young male or female actor aged 10–14 to play the lead role of Jordan. Talent should be able to portray a variety of emotions and express yearning, hope, and determination.
“The Mission” shoots July 15 in and around Burbank, California, including one scene on the Warner Bros. backlot. The project pays $125 per day.
