Project: Elon

Native St. Louis independent film director and producer, Kevin Coleman-Cohen brings Elon, the short film into production through Coleman Entertainment, LLC. The film is shot primarily in Los Angeles with some B-roll and exteriors being shot in St. Louis. The film is SAG approved but non-SAG actors are also welcomed to audition. Any St. Louis actor being cast in the film will have their travel and hotel paid for by the production if they are needed in Los Angeles. All payment to talent is deferred which can be explained in detail if a role is offered. One scene from the film has already been shot. The film is based on Kevin's work as a former outreach manager with a non-profit in the St. Louis area that serves at-risk and homeless youth.

Kevin is currently a film Professor at Pepperdine University, Columbia College Hollywood, and Santa Monica College.

Abandoned by his drug-addicted mother and sexually abused by a male relative during childhood, Elon seeks safe haven on the streets with his friend Twon, a seasoned street hustler. Elon must navigate the traumatic world of homelessness while confronting loneliness, desperation, and the harsh reality of survival sex in order to face an uncertain future.

Project: Juno-Nominated Girl Pow-R

CASTING FOR ALL-GIRL, POP STAR GROUP

The  group was nominated for the JUNOs (like the Grammy’s) in 2020 for their debut album! It's history-making, as it makes the group a part of the first-ever group of young people to be nominated for a JUNO award in the Children's Category for Album of the Year.  

The group is a multi-ethnicity, inclusive group. The band performed 200+ shows in its first 3 years, and completed their first US Tour in summer 2019 performing in Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York and Boston to audiences of 500 to 1000 fans. During COVID, Girl Pow-R has averaged 1 to 2 online performances every month.

SEEKING GIRLS AGES 9 TO 17 WHO SING AND DANCE. We have online shows planned every two months throughout 2021 when COVID restrictions are in place, and will resume live shows as soon as it is safe to do so.   

“Girl Pow-R” is an energetic group of young girls who are setting out to inspire others to do their best. Each girl in the group will represent different cultural backgrounds and embrace the elements of pop and rock to communicate the Girl Pow-R message. Through us, you can also learn how to write music, create a strong stage presence, play an instrument in a band, support a social cause, practice interviewing skills, develop the “It Factor” and more.  

The Girl Pow-R repertoire requires training and in-depth rehearsals to meet the exacting standards required for this opportunity as all choreography, singing, stage presence, playing instruments, and audience interaction is scripted to optimize the performer's It Factor, and the Wow Factor for the audience.

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Required Media: Headshot/photo, resume and video audition

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations:  Rehearsals & performances are ongoing ONLINE throughout North America (United States, Canada, Mexico).
