Auditions: Friday, February 25, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Friday, February 25, 2011.

We have made it to Friday, and for some out there, it will be another snow day! I learned that many auditions were canceled yesterday due to weather. Folks are starting to get auditions for Leverage, and are spreading the word about a new NBC Pilot being filmed in Portland, Oregon.

The questions have been presented to me regarding how one would get an audition for Leverage, and I would assume these are coming in through agencies. However, I have an acquaintance who isn't represented, but was called in for a Leverage casting. This made me did they nail that? Unfortunately, I don't know this acquaintance well enough to ask, but I do know they are very bold, and may have learned details about the casting and either just showed up, or contacted the casting director directly to inquire about auditioning. I am taking notes on becoming more forward in this industry in Portland, but in bigger cities, that is what an agent is for.

We have discussed the importance of networking, and attending networking events. Does having a drink with the right person move you forward in your career?

Let's continue this, and the week's very interesting discussions in the chat box below!

If you are a fan of the blog, please share this with actor friends. If you have any feedback for me on how to improve my blog, share this with me so that I may work on improving the blog.

Filming for They're Here this Saturday

I need some extras. No pay, but I'll provide sandwich makings and water.

I still also need at least one more Secret Service Agent/Mental Health worker. Must have dark suit and all white outfit: much like scrubs. There's one line from one of these guys (could be female, though), but nothing huge.

I also need two younger females for two scenes. It would be nice if one was quite short. She has to try to get her ET doll back from another girl, who stands about 5'2". Dress geeky. You can go as stereotypical as you want.

I'll be shooting a few scenes on a different day and will need one African-American male, and one willing to wear a tutu... must be willing to skewer stereotypes of hate groups.

Email me off list if you're interested in doing any of the roles with lines. Same goes for being extras. the call time for the Agents/Aides is 11am, and the two girls it's 2pm. Call time for extras is also 2pm. I need at least 5-10 extras.

Address is 1221 NW 11th Ave in Portland. Easy via transit, parking is street and you do have to pay. I may be able to help a little in that regard, but not a lot.

Short Film Verge Needs An Actress

Hey everyone, we recently have verge about 90% complete on the shooting side however we decided to add a few scenes in it. We are looking for an actress between the ages of 18-27 attractive to have a dinner scene with our lead. It is a speaking role with lines. The premise of the film is about a college student going through his first psychotic break. Outside of the dinner scene we may also add a scene of the two walking down the street flirting with one another. We plan on shooting these scenes sooner then later. Feel free to send me your headshot and resume and we can go from there.

Actresses wanted for short film

I am a college student embarking on a short parody style film about a type of fetish films and how absurd they are. The films focus is to poke fun at those who watch these videos and those who make them. Looking for actresses to play particular roles in the piece portraying the types of people who act in these; which will include a mock interview with that character. The age range for the roles varies between 20 and 25 years of age.
