Casting Call for “Mr. Crab”

I am looking for actors for my next short film, and I was hoping that someone might know someone else who would be great. If you do know an actor (especially an Indian-Trini) please send this along to them. It’s a paid position – and we’re going to look at people from Toronto and New York (and surrounding areas) to find the right person. So even if they aren’t from Montreal, don’t let it stop them from getting in touch!  We’re shooting July 30th, so please don’t reply after that.


Green Dragon Productions is looking for actors for its next short film, “Mr. Crab”. Written and Directed by Faisal Lutchmedial who won a Writers Guild of Canada award at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema for the script of Useless Things (his last short, trailer here: The short is a drama about a little boy’s relationship with his loving but frightening father, and his attempted escape into a dreamworld.

The characters we need to cast are:

Rishi: A brown skinned 6-9 year old innocent looking boy. Must be able to swim underwater. No accent required.

Gobin: West-Indian (Trinidadian) man, 35-45 years old father of Rishi. Gobin is a caring father, but can be a stern and frightening man. Must be able to do a Trinidadian accent.

Sandy: West-Indian, or Afro-Carribean mother of Rishi. 30-45. Must be able to do a Trinidadian accent.
