After Hours River is a very experimental movie with high commercial value and possibility. Film has very low budget, good acting, good atmosphere and good plot. Eight Players come to one house in the middle of the night. Every player is very different of any other. Archetypes of Modern People. Play of poker in surreal surroundings.

Who are they?
How are they connected?
Why are they connected?
Why do they play this game?
What are they play in?
What are they win if they win?
And who is gonna win?

This is a great opportunity and chance to approve and hone your skills. Improvisation on a set will be a massive part of the naturalistic feel to the film. This is a unique project, highly collaborative with a multiple camera and great crew, and will be fun to shoot.
We are looking for dedicated and determined supporting actors to bring the characters to life with urgency and rigour. The film is being produced by talented and established people.

Please take a short look at the character descriptions and submit your resume (CV), current pictures, demo reel, video cv and youtube link if available.

Only successful applicants will be contacted. Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,
