Production Description

Casting "Billboard: An Uncommon Contest for Common People," a feature film. Casting personnel state: "WTYT 960 is calling for contestants! Well, really, we’re casting a movie. The movie is about Casey, who inherits a struggling radio station, WTYT 960. To bring the station out of the ratings basement, he devises a plan to host a billboard-sitting contest, wherein four lucky people will live on the catwalk (eight feet wide by forty feet long) in front of the billboard for a chance to win a mobile home and 'nine-sixty' thousand dollars. Obviously this is a comedy, but with some dramatic elements. It’s a cross between 'Napoleon Dynamite' and 'Hands on a Hard Body.' What makes this project so unique is Zeke’s 'transmedia' approach to telling the story by creating a 'story world.' The project is already underway in the form of a virtual radio station (WTYT960.com), for which over 320 bands have submitted their music to become a part of the station’s playlist."

Producer's Union Contract Note

Producer states: "We’re seeking SAG and non-SAG actors. We’ll be producing the project under the SAG New Media and Low Budget agreements, with a no favored nations clause. The reason for two different agreements is that we’re creating in uncharted territory, using various medias to tell the story and we want to employ a blend of established and undiscovered talent."
