Seeking actors for short film scene, paid

Website URL J. J. Miller Film Productions

Hello everyone,

STL based Writer/Director is casting for multiple PAID film projects over the coming months in STL. Currently seeking to fill the roles of:


LISA (early 30’s, female) – Energetic with both a soft sweetness and a quick dramatic temper. She is frustrated with her current place in life as she has yet to get married or have kids, two of the things she wants desperately.

WILL (30’s, male) – Easy going and sort of clueless. Just drifting through life and getting by in his relationship with Lisa by being appeasing. 


This project is a short scene pulled out of a feature screenplay for proof of concept purposes and will only require one day of filming. These will be PAID roles with possibility of recasting in future short film or feature projects.

Shooting dates are TBD based off of talent and crew availability but aiming for late October or November.

If interested, please email a headshot, resume, and a link to a reel or a short contemporary monologue as a sample of work to: or by clicking link below.

A little about the filmmaker: J. J. Miller is a Webster graduate who has acted in, directed, or produced multiple award winning short films, some of which have screened in festivals around the country.
