From time to time, some interesting casting calls get passed through the beijingkids editorial desk, giving children great real-world work experience in film or television. While most of these tend to be modeling gigs, this particular one is likely the strangest we’ve seen in a while!
Some graduating students from the Beijing Film Academy are seeking lead roles for their final film project. The short, titled The Blind Zone, will be a 20-minute long psychological thriller, and the prequel to what they hope will turn into an eight-episode first season. Not to be confused with the 2009 feel-good movie The Blind Side, starring Sandra Bullock, this gig will likely be something far more sinister.
The one catch for this role is that your middle schooler (between the ages of 13-18) needs to be a girl, and look beautiful, rich, and evil. If your daughter meets these criteria, along with being Asian and bilingual, then you are in the running. It’s also one of the lead roles in the project, so we are also assuming that some experience in front of the camera or on stage is preferred. But who knows, maybe just the presence of pure evil will be the only prerequisite needed to land this leading role.
