Store Clerk:

Kid:
A young boy gets upset when he finds McNeil squatting in the kid’s favorite peeping tom spot. Kid is curious and relatively naive but doesn’t hesitate when McNeil offers him some booze. Kid eventually gets drunk and when he does, he get’s a little more snappy.

Policeman:
A grizzled police office shows up and finds McNeil and Kid sitting in a tree taking pictures of women. Policeman becomes increasingly frustrated as a drunk McNeil and an even more drunk Kid refuse to listen and obey. The frustration eventually leads to the Policeman firing his gun at McNeil. Although annoyed, Policeman does eventually calm down after McNeil promises to hand over copies of the pictures he’s taking.

Casting Notice for Live Action Peter McNeil Short Film

It’s true! We are going to be filming a live action, short film version of Peter McNeil, PI!

The short film will be a brand new story and will be shot in black and white while relying heavily on special effects and illustrations (meaning a lot of green-screen work). We are casting all roles except Peter McNeil. If you are interested (and you are interested), please see the casting notice below.

Casting:

Eleanor:
Eleanor’s husband has been murdered. She is frustrated with the local police force’s efforts to find the killer and she is now turning to Peter McNeil for help. Eleanor is a smart but unsophisticated woman from the poor side of town. After McNeil solves her case Eleanor finds herself attracted to McNeil and maybe a little desperate for some affection.

Bartender:
The bartender works for McSwiggs bar. The bar itself is a heaven for the dredges of society. The bartender spends most of his day serving drinks to and listening to the worst of what the town has to offer. His clientele are simply not good people and as a result, the Bartenders patience is extremely limited. The Bartender is also, for unknown reasons, skeptical of police and doesn’t want to bring any legal-type attention whatsoever to his bar. The Bartender is a rough and surly man.

Killer Klein:
Killer Klein is a creepy, disgusting murder. Every once of his being screams “disturbed.” Killer Klein does not shy away or even try to hide his dark side. In fact, he wears his evil as a badge of pride. Killer Klein sits in the shadows and waits for his moment to strike. He is an unattractive, sleazy, rodent like man.

Peter:
Peter hired McNeil to solve a case. Unwilling to pay McNeil in full, Peter now has to pay McNeil back whenever and however he can – which usually means being put in harms way. Peter is an unwilling participant to McNeil’s plans but ultimately succumbs to McNeil out of guilt. By all accounts, Peter is a normal, well adjusted and honest man – a god fearing man that just wants to do right by himself and his friends. Peter represents “the average Joe.”

Extras:
McSwiggs bar is full of the downtrodden and the worst of what the town has to offer. Both men and women are needed for background and extras work.

Now McNeil finds himself tied up and alone in a dank, dark and dreamy basement. Will McNeil be able to free himself or will he soon be sleeping with the fishes?  Listen to the conclusion of Recipe for Danger to find out!
