From the Producer of Dirty Laundry comes Love for Passion a narrative, extended short film about a young African-American ballet dancer on the eve of his New York City debut, but he is distracted by his estranged, dying father who now seeks forgiveness. We are casting for the following roles:
JEFFREY LOVE - 22-30 - Male, African-American - Determined, young ballet dancer who is a virtuoso, but troubled. He has had to fight for everything he has, including becoming a dancer. It makes him even more focused on being the best. He is the youngest principal dancer of the Kaleidoscope dance company and on the eve of his solo debut. Underneath the tough exterior are layers of hurt and feelings of abandonment that he best expresses in his dance. Strong acting skills. Lead.
DARRY LOVE - 50-60 - Male, African-American - Tall - Jeffrey's estranged father is a former NBA player who has not spoken to his son in 10 years. He is just as obstinate as his son. He is tough, but a debilitating disease has crippled and humbled him. He seeks reconciliation and forgiveness from his son for their estrangement. Lead.
LR - 25-35, Female, African-American, Beautiful. Jeffrey's girlfriend and the Kaleidoscope company manager. You can look at her and tell she can get the job done, but she is very supportive of Jeffrey. Supporting.
Karl - 35 - 45, Any Ethnicity. The demanding Artistic Director of Kaleidoscope. He is about perfection from his dancers and is your stereotypical director, but he has a tender side as well. Supporting.
