We are making a 7-min post-apocolyptic film called 'Nef's Run'. We need actors and dslr shooters for 1(possibly 1+ 1/2) day. Our approach is guerrila style filmmaking. We'll be lightly equipped on 3 main locations in Sulphur Springs that have lots of vegetation, and we will move through the process quite quickly (1 day commitment). As for the style of the film, instead of pursuing the popular grey, dusty, and desolate conventions of the post-apocalypse genre, we will be going for green, humid, and messy visual aesthetics. We will be shooting on one day within the next 2 weeks(we have to shoot on a day where overcast provides us softlight).
Actors, Please send us your headshots/photos and resume. Shooters, send us info about your camera, and audio gear, and supports. We will respond to all submitions. And if you have any questions, contact us:
- Kimberli Browning
- John Johns
- Paul Gibbons
- Will Townson
- Robert Solomon
- Klaus Buechele

Nefilia's Run aka 'Nef's Run' is a post-apocolyptic short film by the tampa-based guerrila filmmaking group 'Film Punks'. In a rural region of a post-collapsed America, a young woman named Nefilia has survived by growing her own food and by living in isolation away from the area's other surviving population. But the morning after a violent storm destory's her food supply, Nefilia is forced to leave the relative safty of her hidden home to go look for food among the other survivors. Things begin to go terribly wrong as she encounters both former friends and enemies.

Nef's Run will be shot in 1-2 days. The goal is to keep total production time within 5 hours and 1 day. Most crew members will be SHOOTERS covering 1-2 camera angles. Cameras A-C cover PRIMARY shots, Cams D-F cover SECONDARY shots, and NINJAs are specialists who FILL the cracks by filming Inserts & more Creative shots. NINJAs also assist KEYs and FILLs when needed.

WARDROBE/ MAKE UP
Old, faded clothes and shoes. Try not to overdo it. We're assuming that even after the collapse of civilization, people would want to preserve some of their humanity. Grooming is important even to wild animals, so when deciding what's approapriate, just imagine how hard it would be to maintain personal appearance without modern conviences like soap and a washing machine(deeps stains would fade but not disappear, and whatever wrinkles remained after you hung your clothes out to dry we would see). All the guys should have longer facial hair. Do your best!
MAKE UP- Don't even worry about it. We want everyone besides Nef and the Old Man to look a hot, humid, well organized mess. We may spray your face with water or gatorade to make you look sweaty. All hair should be either long, or cut short with scizzors. All guys' facial hair should be as long as possible. Show up looking your saturday-morning-worst.
- Nefilia- Nef and the Old Man have done reletively well for themselves after the collapse. They are the ones who stockpiled supplies and growing seeds days before civilization failed. During the months of mass death, they continued to stay hidden from the dwindling population. Nef has supplies like soap and is able to maintain her hygene better than others.
- Old Man- The old man can dress quite comfortably. He grows his own food with Nefilia in a garden hidden in the forrest. KADE invisioned pants rather than denim and maybe some old suspenders. Think "Hershel" in season 2 of "The Walking Dead".
- Mat- Mat has an air of confidence about him that has made him a godsend for his two friends Caffy and Bart. He's been smart enough to figure out how to make his group survive collapse. We imagine that he would dress a little more comfortably than other survivors, in the form of: He may wear less protection or less layers.
- Caffy- Caffy is a fighter. Her appearance should be that of someone who is rough and a bit cocky.
- Bart- Bart has a gentle demeanor. He prefers to avoid any danger and wears more protective clothing layers than others.
- The Brothers Gang- These men are the dominant group in the area. Through brutality and intimidation they maintain a controlling fear over the other surviviors. They are powerful and like to show off their muscular bodies to indimidate others . Because they control the area, they eat more meat than anyone and are able to maintain their intimidting physical features.
- SURVIVORs- These are people who's lives are at risk 24/7 to starvation, disease, murder, and
