Pair of Middle Aged Actosrs Needed

Man and Woman in their 40s play husband and wife with alcoholic son.

You don't need to memorize a single line, just sign the talent release and read the cue cards. Less than 4 hours of acting. Sandwiches and Soda Pop.

Shooting date is on a weekend in the middle of March, might as well bone up on the dialog now: Mother talks on phone, tries to sell beat up car to someone offscreen; Alcoholic Father talks to alcoholic son, and urges him to "do the right thing" and marry her for her daddy's money, it's easier than climbing the corporate ladder.

Compensation: no pay

Auditions for Anarchist TV News Show Anchors this Sunday and Monday

We are looking for four TV News Anchors.

The show will be filmed in the studio of TCTV in Olympia, WA on a weekly
basis. Possibly a 2 hours weekly commitment.

The idea behind the show is to feature news of human liberation locally
and around the world. The show will be scripted so we know how much time
each story takes. As anchors, you will be reading news stories and on
occasion conducting interviews with studio guests. These positions are
good for people who are into TV journalism and anarchism.

People not chosen to be hosts can be field reporters or crew.

People wanting to be part of the crew should attend these auditions.

No pay

Casting, Seattle Photoshoot, Attractive Professional Looking Males

We are casting for a photoshoot and looking for a stylish male who looks very good in a suit,
or comparable attire.

The date is TBD depending on model and location but I expect in the next few weeks to shoot.

The theme of the shoot is super high quality executive portraits. So if you are handsome and can look
business like, please apply.

These are going to be in the studio and also outside. The outside shoot is going to be technically quite elaborate
as we are going for stand out shots.

This is a pretty low budget shoot so you will have to dress yourself. You will need to have a
sense of style. Age isn't really important. Youth never hurts, but not required. More, a confident
attitude and a willingness to play the part of a high powered business person, a world
renowned film director, a young entrepreneur is what we need.

A good photogenic face is very, very important. 5'9 and taller. In shape. All races.
Please have a suit or other attire that's sharp and stylish.

Models will get photos for their portfolio and hopefully have fun in the process!
Models will need to sign a standard release.

Reply to: Please submit a recent headshot and a full body shot to

Nate - 40’s. Average build. Josh’s coworker with whom he plays pick up basketball.

Non-speaking Supporting Roles:

Phyllis - Elderly physical therapy patient. Does exercises.

A Homeless Man - Any age. Drunkard.
