Short Film Now Casting

Friday, July 6th, 2012

We are in pre-production on our next short film project and we are looking for actors. The story is a comedic short about a Hollywood production that loses one of its star actors just before shooting commences on the climactic scene. If you are interested in participating in this project, please email a headshot and resume to clint(at)redfoxmediainc.com. Here’s a list of characters:

  • CHUCK (30s-50s) – Military type. Precise. In control. Regimented
  • KRISSY (20s-30s) – Chuck’s assistant. Organized. Dependable. Producer-like.
  • PRODUCER (20s-40s) – Male or Female. Producer for a camera crew. Reporter-like. Business-like. Eager. Professional
  • CAMERAMAN (20s-30s)
  • AUDIO TECH (20s-30s) – Male. Needs to be a little person. Gruff.
  • CLOWN (20s-40s) – Typical clown you might see at a child’s birthday party.
  • PRODUCTION ASSISTANT (teens-20s) – Male or Female
  • THUG (30s-40s) – Muscular. Intimidating.
  • Extras are also needed for a high school football locker room scene, an outdoor basketball scene, and a scene inside a school library.



Currently, our plan is to shoot over the course of two weekends in mid-late September.

Trajan is the Movie Font

Monday, March 8th, 2010

If you happen to be graphic designer, a fan of fonts, or just a fan of movies, you will appreciate the following video. It’s amazing how pervasive one font can actually be and how overused it can become. There’s a lesson for the kids out there. Be willing to do something different to help you or your client stand out.

On-Screen Cliches – The Dramatic Walk-Off

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

If you watch a lot of movies, you will soon pick up on certain devices that are used over and over again, like a car that won’t start when the killer is closing in on the main character. One of the cliches that I’ve noticed is often used during a dramatic scene between two characters. Usually, the characters are at odds with each other and the scene is tense, filled with a lot of dialogue. Inevitably, Character #1 will end the conversation and then dramatically walk away from the confrontation. However, just before he/she leaves the room, Character #2 will stop Character #1′s exit with one last word. You might see this play out in an FBI office when the young, brash agent starts to walk away from his supervisor. Just before getting to the door the supervisor will say, “Agent Pearson.” At which point, the young agent will turn around. The two lock eyes for a moment and the supervisor adds, “Be careful out there.”

What other movie/TV cliches have you noticed?
