Casting Call for Young Boy with a Disability
Seeking young boy with a disability for an animated action/comedy
Synopsis: In a world where every good deed is recorded for social media and judged in likes and comments, our kid-heroes buck the trend and uses their mastery of sneakery to perform anonymous good deeds for others! This crew doesn’t fight bad guys – they tiptoe to lend a helping hand, infiltrate with empathy, and squash negativity right out of your day.
[ARI] Lead. Male. 7-10 (talent need to sound like they are 8-9).
- Talent must be able to read
- Important that the actor has a disability/uses a wheelchair
- No acting experience required, just an outgoing personality
Ari is a comic book character come to life who is totally fearless. He’s the kind of kid who marches to the beat of his own drum, which is about 6 months in the future compared to everyone else. Ari has boundless energy, loves to go fast, and is an expert with all things engineering and gear – Think of him as a little ‘Q’ from James Bond… But also James Bond. His special skills are – The Sonic Vroom-Boom – a turbo powered move where Ari’s chair can zoom past anyone and is undetectable to human or animal eyeballs.
