Casting for “The Wolf”

By October 28, 2011January 6th, 20122 Comments3 min read

What is “The Wolf”?

“The Wolf” is currently what’s in development right now. It’s essentially going to be a silent film under 10 minutes made for the web. The goal for this project is to just make something visually engaging while telling a story without the use of dialogue. It’s aimed primarily for the web and any online competitions/festivals. It focuses on a conflicted young man (Travis Wolf) who struggles for his freedom after witnessing his girlfriend overdose on drugs she found in his jacket. We see this character make one bad decision after another until he’s forced to survive on the streets as a fugitive and ultimately it doesn’t fare well for him in the end. There’s also going to be a supernatural element to this story so we’ll see where this journey takes us. This is also going to be the first project using the new Panasonic Af100. I need a small project to chew on before moving on to the next big thing since I have a few new toys I haven’t tested out in the field yet.
