Special Notes for Potential Cast/Crew: This short is non-dialogue, which means the acting must be top notch. That does not mean it will be exaggerated, but rather the actor’s must use the economy of their actions well. Any talent and/or experience with knife throwing is welcome.

Editor’s Note: This call has not been edited from its original submission. The formatting may have been amended slightly to meet our posting layout, but the content; the words, grammar, mechanics and all, has been posted as it was submitted to Short Film Texas. We believe the devil is in the details and the sub-text of a call, not just the text itself, can provide valuable insight into a film production and its filmmakers. We hope that this policy will help you in making your decision to submit to this call.
