Texas student independent short film “COWBOY AND INDIA” will be working on scenes in the Brownsville and Los Fresnos area and is in search of Rio Grande Valley talent for our western theme film shoot. This is a double feature short film production. Both short films will be ten minutes and shot concurrently, using the same characters to tell the same story in two different ways.
This project offers an exciting opportunity to portray a character that will be “the good guy” in one film and “the bad guy” in the other. The two films will be shot concurrently over two weekends. COWBOY: “A traveling bronc rider tries to escape the threat of an inquisitive hitman.” – Written and Directed by Kight Haberer. INDIA: “In pursuit of his last target, a distinguished assassin is betrayed by his organization.” – Written and Directed by Jorge Garza
The western film will shoot Friday 3/23, Saturday 3/24 and Sunday 3/25 but if selected you will only need to come out one day, depending on shooting schedule and weather. If selected, you will need to come dressed in western attire. Once selected you will receive an email or phone call from our staff with further instructions to attend the casting.
