Casting Notice for Short Comedy Film to be shot in Portland February 19-20


GHC is an independent short film being produced by local filmmakers in the Portland area. We are holding auditions this Saturday, February 5th from 9am to 12pm. Please read descriptions below and if interested, submit headshots and/or resumes to the e-mail address provided. We will be making calls on Wed Feb 2nd to begin scheduling the auditions. This a no-pay gig as the little money that is available for this independent project will be going to equipment, location fees, etc. Food will, of course, be provided along with a copy of the final project.

The script is an over-the-top look at suburban adolescence and the ridiculous egos and competitive nature of teenage boys.

CRAIG(playing for age 16)
Straight-laced Craig loves being average. He is an average teenager living in an average town getting average grades at school. His life would be perfectly average were it not for his mother, the ridiculously attractive MRS. MASON. Craig is obsessively protective of her and has no patience for MILF jokes, especially when they come from his best friend and sworn enemy, STANLEY.

STANLEY (playing for age 16)
Devious, calculated, and a pathological liar, Stanley is Craig’s longtime friend and arch nemesis. His career ambitions include worldwide anarchy and general mischief. Currently, his favorite hobby is making people feel uncomfortable.

RICHIE (playing for age 14)
Richie is unquestionably loyal to his hero, his older brother Craig. He is helpless and whiny, but also the voice of reason for this trio. The quintessential momma’s boy, his recent foray into puberty and the discovery of his mother’s hotness have left him entirely confused.

MRS. MASON (40’s)
Mrs. Mason is bubbly, flirtatious, and completely unaware of the effect she is having on the developing young minds of teenage boys. She’s desperate to connect with her sons and be that ‘cool mom’. Dresses way to young for her age. Missed the Ed Hardy craze by at least 3 years. Not the sharpest tool in the shed, and never will have to be.

Dancers for Earth Day Production

Casting dancers for remaining roles in Earth Day production

Performance Dates: (Friday April 22nd, and Saturday April 23rd)
Performance Location: Seattle, Washington (venue TBA)

Auditions will be held Saturday February 5th, Saturday February 12th, and by appointment.

Law of Life, A Pathwalker’s Journey incorporates dance, live music, and spoken word to tell the story of a young woman’s journey of self-discovery as she learns that all humanity shares a common heritage of living in sustainable, nature-based communities. She is empowered to embrace her sacred connection to the Earth while dealing effectively with life in contemporary society. The work is inspired by the writings of Daniel Quinn, Deep Ecology, and anthropology.

Featured Roles:
The Pathwalker---a female dancer who guides The Seeker to understand the wisdom of the Earth and face the challenges of contemporary society with fluidity and grace. The Pathwalker is ethereal, mystical, playful, wise, and compassionate.

The Seeker---a young woman yearning for harmony amidst the chaos of contemporary life. Guided by The Pathwalker, she discovers profound truths. The Seeker is sincere, emotionally vulnerable, and authentic as she passes through stages of awareness and personal growth.

Additional Roles:
Core dancers for supporting roles (any gender). Core dancers are integral to the work, which is ultimately and ensemble piece, embodying essential aspects of the narrative through shifting personas and emotional shadings.

Connection to the themes of the performance and improvisational ability is a strong plus.

The performance is planned for Earth Day weekend, 2011 (Friday, April 22nd and Saturday April 23rd), and requires a commitment of one Saturday rehearsal per week in February and March, with additional rehearsals in the weeks directly preceding the production. We envision this as an ongoing connection to the community centered around an Earth Day performance, with additional performances to be determined.

There is no monetary compensation at present; however, dancers will receive a video of the performance as well as a book and CD of the performance poetry. Members of the original cast will have first opportunity to participate in future performances and a planned DVD project.

A synopsis and two spoken word/musical selections from the production are online:
