Now Playing Tracks

Thirteen years ago, one of the strongest, most important people in my life passed away. She was a healer, a compassionate follower of God, a trailblazer. She was the matriarch of our family. When she passed I only had to mourn for myself because I knew she was at peace. Besides, do you morn an Amazonian soldier when she retires from the battlefield? No, you just hope you were paying enough attention when she was around to have learn something.


Today I needed a folder to put my casting call materials in and I randomly found one with this from my Nana’s funeral. I am not sure I could have come across a better sign that things are moving in the right direction.

Since it was Munday, I decided to do a small art reference project for myself. And then I decided to make it public with the following notes.

From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

What NOT to do (front):

  • Don’t chicken wing your arms! Although it might be easier to hold the rifle, you will make yourself a bigger target.
  • Don’t close your one eye! You will lose your depth perception, which is crucial when you are on the move, or are trying to determine how far away your target is
  • Don’t keep your legs haphazardly strewn about. You need to make sure you’re balanced!

What to do (front)

  • Keep both eyes open
  • Bend your elbows downwards and towards the ground to make yourself a smaller target
  • Bend your knees to control the gun’s recoil + be ready to move.

What NOT to do (side)

  • Don’t put the stock above your shoulder
  • Don’t lean back.
  • Both of the above reduce your control over the weapon and may result in a black eye, and the rifle flying backwards and out of your hands.

What to do (side)

  • Bury the stock of the rifle into the meaty part of your shoulder
  • Lean into the gun to keep the gun under control when the recoil of the gun kicks the gun upwards or to the side
  • Bend your knees slightly to lean forward, as well as make yourself a smaller target

Patrol/Relaxed Stance

  • The soldier is relaxed and is most likely moving around.
  • His eyes are searching for possible threats
  • His hands are still on the rifle, even if he has a sling on

Low Ready Stance

  • Possible threat has been detected
  • Entire body shifts towards threat direction
  • Stock is shouldered 
  • Eyes are focused on the possible target
  • Gun barrel is pointed in the target’s general direction, but not directly at the target.

Firing Stance

  • Immediate response
  • Soldier fires off shots while screaming to the other people in his team
  • "CONTACT!" or "THREAT!"

Tell your momma, tell your friends, tell anyone who’s heart can comprehend: I’m having a casting call!!

We’re looking to start shooting in late November and we need all kinds of actors from all walks of life. More info to come, character descriptions in the comments.

Tag your actor friends and let them know what’s up!
