Pay will be dependent on union status, and the production will provide housing accommodations.

”Visioneers,” a feature film in which “two young salesmen at a mapping company on the decline set out to make the next big mobile app before the boss that fired them can make it first,” is casting lead, supporting and day player roles. The project will shoot late March–early April 2017 in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles, California.
