We are looking for a female, around the ages 20-35, to play as the main character, Chell, in a short film, 2 minute concept film based on the widely popular video game, Portal. Must be physically fit, attractive, have dark hair, and must be at least 5’8″. Must look confident handling weaponry, and have a stern appearance. She must also resemble closely the character from the game. The film will follow Chell as she escapes from a rogue A.I., GLaDOS, in an abandoned, underground scientific research facility called Aperture Science. As she discovers that GLaDOS has killed everyone in the facility except for the few that are now her test subjects, she has flashbacks showing the deadly events of the takeover.
Although there is no dialogue in the film, Chell’s emotions will show through her facial expresssions and body movement. The role will also require a lot of running and physical activity. Any experience in martial arts or sports is HIGHLY preferred.The 2 minute concept video will be uploaded to our YouTube channel, where we have 115,000 subscribers. The concept film will attract viewers on YouTube to support our 45 minute film on Kickstarter, Portal: Lab Rat. However, this casting is only for the concept film. We will be shooting sometime from May 25th to 28th.
We are also looking for extras to play as scientists during the flashback sequences. They will be trapped in the facility, attempting to escape the deadly neurotoxin attack from GLaDOS.
