My name is Simon Rolland, I am a french fine art student living in Nantes (west of France). I will be in Marfa from May 19 to June 3rd as part of the artist in residence program Fieldwork Marfa, an artistic research program lead by the Nantes school of art, the school of art and design of Geneva and the school of art at the university of Houston. My project here is to direct a short fiction film about youth in Marfa. I'm posting on this group because for this project I would like to meet teenagers from the town who would be interested in acting in the movie as the main characters (acting formation is not required) and/or in helping me to work on the script to make it closer to their reality. I'm also looking for a person who could help me to shot the film (sound recording, light setting, etc..). Both of those opportunity will be paid. I am enclosing to this post a file with more informations about the project and some excerpts of the script. If you can be interested or if you know people who could be, you can contact me with messenger or with email at email@example.com.
I am very excited about this project and I'm looking forward to meet you!
