An action packed ensemble in the spirit of Japanese Anime and 70s style Kung Fu movies with a Sci-Fi Attitude.
Free Flow Academy is casting for their first ever episodic series “Immortal Fist”. Kaya Cohen, abandoned as a baby, is a 16 year old girl and foster child who grew up in the system as a “challenged at-risk youth.” But her 4.3 GPA, obsession with Japanese Anime, and convincing theory of how everyone is living in a virtual reality makes her exceptionally self-aware and light witted despite having no idea who her family is, and where she came from. Being a foster child is unique, but her days are like any other middle class American youth. It’s the summer, and she’s working a part time job as a cashier/waitress to fund her impressive media collection of Anime, since she has decided she will no longer be pirating everything she watches. Well… sort of.
Her life is turned upside down when she is attacked by a legion of Demon Banshees crossing over into the Mortal Realm (or in other words, the "Earthly Server". An Immortal Demon Banshee hunter TAI FONG comes to her aid and saves her from impending doom. Kaya is transported into another dimension to learn about who she is and where she came from. She learns she is of the lineage of an ancient martial bloodline, passed down from her deceased great grandmother, Wing Chun, the first woman to ever create a martial arts system of combat. Within the dimension she is protected and trained by her grandmother. Kaya learns that she has the ability to cross dimensions/servers and time frames, a gift reserved for the last remaining descendant of the bloodline. Kaya’s mission is to survive the holocaust that has targeted her and her family in the Mortal Realm.
CASTING NOTES: Once cast into the show, there is a strong possibility you will play MULTIPLE roles. For instance, you may play a supporting character AND a demon banshee and/or stunt double. If cast as a lead, you will not be cast in additional roles.
PRODUCTION NOTES: We will be shooting the first episode (a 22 minute tv pilot) and some segments from the first 5 episodes of the series over the period of 12 weeks. Once the project is complete we will have a film screening, and submit the series to Amazon for review. If the project is picked up for funding, we will continue the series.
