KID MYSTERY MOVIE SEEKS NEW STARS … MAYBE JUST LIKE YOU!
KNOX CHASE ON THE CASE OF THE VALENTINE’S DAY MYSTERY, based on the new book by Adam Lipsius, will begin filming a feature film version this Summer. The producers of the movie have launched a nationwide, online casting contest. They promise to hire 1 boy, 1 girl and 1 adult to be in the movie, guaranteed. These winners of the contest will be flown to set, put up in a luxury hotel, transported to and from location and filmed in a scene. Those are the rules: 3 winners will receive named parts in Knox Chase on the Case and travel to be in the movie.
But the producers are really hoping to find one or more of the lead actors for this brand new movie. They want everyone to get a chance and hopefully be discovered.
Adam Lipsius, the book’s author is also an award-winning film director. 16-LOVE (distributed in the US by Warner Bros. Digital) is his latest production. Of that film he says, “We wanted to involve our audience in the movie, but we waited until post-production before reaching out. When we ran a contest like this one, looking for one new song to put in the soundtrack, we were blown away by all the great submissions. Ultimately, we didn’t just put one new song in the film. We put six songs from our fans into the film, and they made the finished movie MUCH BETTER!”
“Starting now,” Lipsius continued, “while we’re getting into pre-production seemed like the perfect time to see if anybody wanted to star in our little movie. Seriously, we want to discover brand new talent, and we’re hoping that this pain-free casting contest at knoxchasemovie.com will bring in people who have always wanted to act professionally but never really knew how to get started.”
“Knox Chase on the Case of the Valentine’s Day Mystery” is being produced in consultation with Sean Covel (Producer of Napoleon Dynamite) and the Casting Director is Mary Jo Slater (the casting director of Dumb and Dumber, the Contender and ABC’s Perception). This production has real film makers involved, and the producers believe this is a great chance for aspiring child actors to be discovered.
