Auditions: Tuesday, February 22, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.

The topic has been mentioned quite often recently, but what are your experiences with auditions being posted with very short notice. Are these auditions considered to be professional, or are these more commonly student and non-paying projects? Has anyone with an agency experienced casting call notices from their agent with short notice? Let's continue the discussion 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.

Hi this is Hollie and I am the writer and producer of a short called PILLOW FIGHT. Chris Wilson will be directing of We'll Fix It In Post Productions.

Things you should know. This is a short about an epic pillow fight and while we want attractive girls and clothing, keep in mind we are not talking ANY nudity, more like boy shorts and a tank top and if someone is okay with bra and panties,(FULL bottom not a thong) that is cool IF they want. I will be on set as will the wife of the martial arts/stunt co-ordinator and the girlfriend of our grip.

While this short is fun and comedic it will have great production value and be something that you would be able to put on your demo reel, showing action fight sequences is very strong content for getting other film work. This short will earn you an IMDb credit and be submitted to festivals. You will receive a nicely professionally packaged DVD in a very reasonable amount of time and a video file for your own reels. There is no pay, but you will be fed on set.

Chris Wilson is a fantastic talent and his short film James Vs Reality just won an LA film festival and he and I will be flying down to LA for the awards banquet on March 4th, we are wanting to get the casting done before we leave. His other animation work has won two festivals last year and he is artist of the month right now at renderosity.com which is a pro site for 3D work and more.

While I wrote the story line for Pillow Fight and producing it, I will also be the assistant director on set. I own Livid Stick Productions and two of my short films have been accepted to 8 festivals each and counting. In fact this Saturday both Chris and I will be going to Salem for the Mid-Valley Fest where my most recent short, The Grade will be showing at 4pm and James Vs Reality will be showing at 8:30pm.

At the bottom of this post I included links to some of our work so that you can see we do finish a good product.

The auditions will be THIS SUN the 27th at 1pm at our property where we have a large shop/studio where we will build the set. The stunt fighter will be here and the auditions will be in a call back style where you all will pair up and read together. We will also run you through some choreography. There will be water and snacks provided. Reply for address and directions when you submit a headshot and resume. Looking for girls with martial arts background if possible.
Please if you plan to attend I need you to confirm through this post back to me then I will send auditions sides for you to learn a few quick lines. And please check out the links below.
