The independent feature film “GRAYPORT” is ready to shoot it’s grand finale in Aberdeen, as soon as they cast a local actress for one final leading role.
The crime thriller film is set in a fictional, noir-inspired Aberdeen/Hoquiam town called “Grayport”, and features many Grays Harbor landmarks, and all-local talent – starring Bob Parks, Russell Wiitala, Shaun Beebe, Katie Closter and Lane Youmans in the leading roles, while writer/director Aria manages the production. The plot summary states, “After a vicious series of murders rocks the small town of Grayport, Officer Hall and retired journalist Frank Blakely work to unravel a vast criminal enterprise tied to mysterious billionaire Cal Hastings – thwarted at every turn. When the mayor of Grayport is found murdered, and Hastings announces his candidacy in the special election, they race against the clock to uncover the truth.”
Ladies interested in the unique casting call opportunity who are age 20-35, under 5’5″, and available to film once weekly through the end of summer are encouraged to apply by sending photos and contact information to GrayportFilm@gmail.com. The director states, “No experience is necessary. We are searching for the right look, a natural talent, and commitment to the role. There’s no nudity or kissing, but the character is a dark and complex siren. She is a twist on the classic femme fatale, and her secrets are not revealed until the very end. It’s a very well written part, and an incredible opportunity to be featured in an outstanding independent film. We are looking to cast as soon as possible.”
The “GRAYPORT” project began with a successful kickstarter campaign completed in 2014, and has been in production for the past couple of years involving over a hundred local volunteers as cast and crew, with dozens of locations across Grays Harbor County.
