Kush

As already announced in a post before the holidays last year, the winner of the 3rd Shadow And Act $3,000 Black Filmmaker Challenge is Ka'ramuu Kush for his screenplay entitled And Then...

We took about 2 months off after that announcement was made, in light of all the holiday activity that was to come, and with the new year underway, it's time to jump right back in and get this project started.

Ka'ramuu (whose AFI thesis project Salvation Road - a film we've profiled on S&A - premieres on HBO next month) plans to begin principal photography on And Then... (the winning short script he co-wrote with the inimitable Aisha Hinds (Detroit 187, Hawthorne, Assault On Precint 13), and that will be scored by none other than Me'Shell Ndegeocello) in early April.

But before cameras can start rolling, actors have to be cast; and following is a casting notice from Ka'ramuu for each role available. So actors in the LOS ANGELES area (I'm sure there are a lot of you out there :)), take a look at the notice below and, as it states, send any inquiries or submissions to AndThenCasting@gmail.com (Leah Daniels-Butler - Precious, ATL, Shadowboxer - is handling casting):

And Then... is a "coming of womanhood" story that deals with one woman's confrontation of issues surrounding body image, open communication, and the psychology of sex. The film is about the discovery of feminine power and the healing that follows. 

ISIS, [mid - late 20's, Black female] Chocolate, modest beauty of quiet intelligence and tentative disposition. Sensitive. Brave. Physically shapely. Discovering her feminine power, on the verge of a sexual re-awakening. Working through some insecurities and Black woman body image issues. August's lover. (ACTRESS MUST BE COMFORTABLE WITH NUDITY.)

BAYBEE, [late 20's - mid 30's, Black or Latin female] Honey hued, free-spirited woman. Oozes sexuality. Well versed in alternative forms of intimacy and relationships. Always a step ahead of most men. Isis' friend. (NO NUDITY BUT ACTRESS MUST BE COMPLETELY FEARLESS AND CONFIDENT IN SEXUAL SITUATIONS.)

AUGUST, [mid 30's, Black male] A soft spoken but firm philogynist. Meditative. Piercingly intelligent. Sensually intense. Very comfortable in his own skin. Isis' lover. (ALREADY CAST.)

DANCE EXPERIENCED IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ACTORS. PREFERABLY, CHICAGO STYLE STEPPIN'. See demonstration in video clip below:

And again, send any inquiries or submissions to AndThenCasting@gmail.com.
