The producers of a new feature-length film that makes the Outer Banks a central character are looking for local talent. According Rayolight Productions — the filmmakers behind Lost In Buffalo City and Night of the Fluffet — the new effort is a high school sports film titled Call Sign Romeo.
In a press release issued Feb. 22, director Raymond Wallace describes the film as, “Creed meets Top Gun, set amidst an authentic Outer Banks story. It’s a great homegrown story that will feature numerous area landmarks that Outer Bankers in particular are bound to recognize and appreciate.”
The film’s website explains that the story is about “high school wrestler Chris Miller (as he) pursues his dream to fly jets at the U.S. Naval Academy. He’ll need to win a state championship, while navigating the challenges of his senior year, including his girlfriend going to West Point, a nemesis they call Kid Hulk, and Navy SEAL trainers that stand in his way.”
Not only are the filmmakers looking for Outer Banks actors and extras to be in the movie, they want to create a soundtrack from local bands to “set the mood of the film’s action-packed wrestling scenes.” Production is expected to begin in March with filming anticipated to last through May.
Interested actors and musicians are encouraged to visit www.CallSignRomeo.com for more information about the project, character descriptions, and instructions for auditions and music submissions. The casting call will remain open until the roles are filled, and interested talent are encouraged to submit their headshots, resumes, reels, and contact information by March 12. The producers will contact those selected from submissions.
