26 Jan – If you speak fluent Cantonese – and make that Hong Kong-style – then this is your chance to shine.
Director Jeffrey Chiang is now casting leading and supporting roles, as well as extras, for his upcoming horror movie.
The director posted on his Facebook: "CASTING IN HK/SG/KL :. STAY TUNED for more updates in the coming weeks; for more info please write in to email@example.com #icebergKL #caveatemptor #buyerbeware"
Based on that last hashtag, the casting call is for his upcoming horror movie, "Buyer Beware", which is expected to begin filming this March.
The MM2/Cinetopia production is looking for male and female cast within the age range of 20 to 30 years old.
As mentioned, the cast is required to be fluent in Hong Kong Cantonese and those that fulfil the requirement may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Chiang, who is the executive producer of Malaysia's Iceberg Design, was previously nominated for Most Promising Director at the 24th Malaysia Film Festival (FFM 24).
His horror feature, "Dilarang Masuk", was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress at Anugerah Skrin 2011.
He also served as the writer for award-winning animated movie, "SeeFood", which was released in more than 100 territories worldwide.
Currently, Chiang is working on what is touted as Malaysia's very first monster movie, "Mawas."
The horror action movie tells of Malaysia's cryptid Mawas, similar to America's Bigfoot or Nepal's Yeti, and is inspired by local sightings in Johor, Malaysia during the mid '90s and 2000s.
