Actor Needed for Film THE DARK ARTIST

A Film by Cole Durham
Story by Maddy Jenkins

Synopsis- Jeremy a high school senior art prodigy is given a special project to complete by his art teacher Mr. Caractacus. When Jeremy opens the project folder, he finds out his teacher has a very odd style of art interest. Mr. C likes gory gruesome crime scene art. Once Jeremy does the project, he begins to find out why Mr. C likes these photos and the story begins to open and unravel.

Mr. Caractacus- Mid 20’s early 30’s bearded handsome man who comes across as very charismatic.

All we’re looking for is an actor for Mr. Caractacus. You will read from the script, no need to any preparation. Any help that may be offered for the film would be greatly appreciated as well.  This is a no pay film and it’s my first production. Any questions contact me, Cole Durham at or at 937-716-6007.

When:  February 26th at 5:45PM
Where: 260 Chapman St. Waynesville, OH 45068
