PRISM is the latest venture from local Cleveland Filmmaker Joe Kowalski (Billie Bob Joe, One Day: A Musical, PogieJoe Productions). It is expected to be around 30 minutes long, and is ready to start on production as soon as they find the perfect cast.
PRISM is a short film about six individuals from two unique, dysfunctional families. The six individuals are each represented by a different color in this “complexly interlinked drama about love, loss, and meaning.”
In an attempt to find the perfect cast, PogieJoe Productions will be hosting open auditions at the Jefferson Branch of the Cleveland Public Library on April 2nd and April 9th, from 10am to 4pm. Individuals interested in starring in this unique drama is welcome to show up. The required audition packets and more information can be found at www.pogiejoe.com/prism.
“We are interested in getting a wide variety of ages and ethnicities for these roles, particularly Black and Asian actors,” says director, writer, and producer Joe Kowalski, “This film is currently not paid, but we will supply food, IMDb credit, and free tickets to the Cedar Lee premiere later this year. Also, Henry Winkler has a cameo, so here’s your opportunity to be one degree away from him!”
Kowalski has made two, full length films before PRISM, along with numerous YouTube videos. His 2015 mockumentary film, Billie Bob Joe, premiered at Cedar Lee Theatre and did well at multiple film festivals across the country, and his cast and crew are no doubt looking forward to having an even better reception from PRISM.
