Casting Call: The Ghosts Talisman - A Photo Graphic Novel

clock June 12, 2012 11:38 by author Amber

The Ghost's Talisman is photo graphic novel, or fumetti, written by award winning author and editor Jennifer Brozek and photographed by the award winning photographer Amber Clark. It is the story of an ordinary girl thrown into extraordinary circumstances, a ghost who needs her help, and a sorceress who will stop at nothing to possess both of their souls. The Ghost's Talisman is told through photos and sets (rather than traditional hand drawn methods) and shot in and around the Seattle metro area.

We are casting for the following roles:

HALEY – A woman in her early twenties; she bares the bruises and injuries from a recent car accident.
XANDER – A man in his early twenties who has been dead for almost a year.
RYAN NORTH – A man in is thirties
AMANITA HAAF – Appears to be in her mid-thirties but is actually far older than that.
DEMON – A costume and make up intensive character
HUNTER – A spirit bound that seeks out XANDER and HALEY. A very tall, roughly human in shape that is black from head to toe and has predatory insect like movements.
UNCLE RICH – Late thirties, early forties, very smooth and dapper. He's been around the black a few times
BINDER – A spirit bound to AMANITA HAAF to catch ghosts. Is shorter and more round than HUNTER
YOUNG XANDER – XANDER as a ten year old boy
BOBBY – RYAN NORTH's five year old son

The compensation will be a daily stipend once funding is acquired. Projected project dates will be July and August of 2012.

Please send head shot and letter of introduction to ghoststalisman (at) stopped-motion (dot) com.

Working with Apocalypse Ink Productions

clock April 19, 2012 17:23 by author Amber

This weekend is going to be fun. I'll be spending time out in the field creating some test images for the project I'm working on with author Jennifer Brozek and her label, Apocalypse Ink Productions. In technical terms, it's a fumetti*, or photo graphic novel. In the more abstract, it's awesome, a tale of deceit, power grabs, and dead people.

You may be asking yourself, "So what, Amber? That's exciting and all but what does that have to do with taking test photos?"

I'll be playing with a new technique and a new type of lens I've never used before; a LensBaby Composer. I've never played with one so it's good that these are only test photographs. I've taken a few pictures already and fiddled with it some more but we'll see how it goes.

Yeah, I'm going to have fun with it.

* I have to thank Donna Barr for pointing me in this direction.
