Casting call for actors and actresses - See description for details (Porland Metro area)

I am a filmmaker who is making Test Movie for Amazon Studios ( http://studios.amazon.com )

What is a Test Movie? Basically it is a no budget film that is used to help sell the screenplay to buyers. Here is a link from Amazon Studios that shows you a few examples of what a test movie is http://studios.amazon.com/getting-started

What I need is a good call list of actors and actresses from all ages, and walks of life. What’s in it for you?
1. Exposure to thousands of people and Warner Brothers producers;
2. Demo Reel material;
3. Experience;
4. 15% for lead characters and 5% for minor parts of any cash awarded from Amazon Studios for the Test Movie;
5. Opportunity to work in more test films or we hope a budgeted film. Opportunity to work on spec commercials and we hope budgeted commercials as well.

If interested, send a headshot and your contact information and any recent acting experience you have had. DO NOT SEND resumes and no phone calls. I am mostly looking for people who are residents in the Portland Metro area, or willing to travel to Portland, who I can call when parts come available. Shoots will be planned to accommodate work schedules. There is no pay for any of the work in the test films and the compensation and value is listed above in the five points. All films will ONLY be posted on Amazon Studios. You will have to sign a release as per Amazon Studios requirements

Short film holding auditions (NW PORTLAND)

We are preparing to hold auditions for an upcoming short film January 8th in NW Portland. We are casting for four roles read the breakdowns below.

Early 40’s
– Colt is the type of Character that everyone loves to hate, a classic anti-hero. He is 40 years old and a womanizer that lies and cheats whenever he can to get ahead. Colt’s a little overweight and he wears cheap suits and his stomach hangs out in-between the buttons. As far as Colt is concerned he is Gods gift to woman. He is arrogant, egocentric and often uses his own friends to get what he wants.

Mid 30’s Late 20’s
– Colts only friend an overall nice guy. Rich is in a tough financial situation. Rich is in his 30’s and he is usually dressed pretty well in a collard shirt and a pair of slacks.

Wife / Donna
Late 30’s
– Colt’s wife is an attractive woman in her mid to late 30’s. There is a disconnection between her and Colt. She never looks him in the eye and always holds a face of disgust towards him. When she talks to him it is quick and to the point. As far as she is concerned they are finished way before she gives him the divorce papers.

Man / Unnamed
Late 20’s to early 30’s
– The Man is in his late 20’s; he is handsome and dresses very well, mostly in black. Even though his face isn’t really seen until the last couple scenes he is an important character to show that him and Colt’s wife possibly have some kind of love interest.

This will be a no pay job, but there will be meals provided. This film will be sent out to the film festival circuit once completed in June.

Please review the character descriptions below and email me (GaryRomans@poetic.com) your choices. I will email you the appropriate audition sides to be used Jan 3 & 4.

“Bus Stop” is “a composite picture of varying kinds of love, ranging from the innocent to the depraved” – Inge’s own words. It is a drama, with romantic and some comedic elements. The play is set in a diner about 30 miles west of Kansas City in early March, 1955. A freak snowstorm has halted the progress of the bus, and the eight characters (only five were in the bus) have a weather-enforced layover in the diner from approximately 1 to 5 a.m. Romantic or quasi-romantic relationships ensue between Grace and Carl; Professor Lyman and Elma; Cherie and Bo; and (implied) Virgil and Bo. Will is the older authority figure outside the relationships. The film version starring Marilyn Monroe was only very loosely based on this stage version.


(descriptions in quotes are Inge’s own)


ELMA DUCKWORTH, a waitress – young, high-school, plays about age 14, “innocent” (will require parental approval if under 18)

GRACE HOYLARD, café owner - plays age 30s to 50s, “casual earthiness”

CHERIE, a chanteuse – plays age 20-30, “Ozarks/Southern, blond, amoral, the appeal of a tender little bird”


WILL MASTERS, a Sheriff – any age, “huge, saturnine, forbidding”

DR. GERALD LYMAN, a former college professor – plays age 50-65, “alcoholic, ruddy, boyish face”

CARL, a bus driver – plays age 30s to 50s, “casual earthiness”

VIRGIL BLESSING, a ranch hand – plays age 40-50, “defeated” NOTE: Must be able to play a passable acoustic guitar solo in the Act II “variety show” scene. Please bring your own guitar to the audition.

BO DECKER, a young rancher and cowboy – plays age early 20’s, “healthy lookin’, eager, awkward, naïve.”
