"Strings," a new independent movie produced by Lancaster Catholic grad Mike Axe, is looking for secondary actors.

Local creatives, mark your calendars.

Mike Axe, a 2004 Lancaster Catholic High School graduate, is returning to the area to find secondary actors and production team members in Lancaster for his newest independent film, "Strings."

In a press release, Axe describes the upcoming movie as a "heartwarming and humorous romantic comedy, offering equal doses of laughter and heartfelt moments."

"Strings" focuses on a musician named Jack, the main protagonist, who finds a diary filled with poetry. He uses the poetry to give life to his music. But, his record executive wants Jack to find the poet, which leads him on a long, love-filled journey.

Robert Zappia – whose claim to fame was writing the 1998 film "Halloween H20," an installment in the popular horror franchise – is the writer and director for "Strings."

Zappia, a longtime friend of Axe, visited Lancaster as part of last year's Red Rose Film Festival, where he spoke as a panelist. He picked Lancaster as a filming location after he saw it fit the description of the homey small town he envisioned when writing the movie.

The casting call for "Strings" is online. Submissions are due by Feb. 2.
