Auditions: Tuesday, March 01, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Tuesday, March 01, 2011.

As we enter March, things are really starting to pick up in Portland. It's important that we continue to share our experiences auditioning and booking work. With so much work out there, and so much talent in Portland, it is always encouraging to hear about the positive experiences actors face on a regular basis.

I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and feedback on this, and the ongoing discussion about working for little or no pay. Here is the article shared yesterday.

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.



Voiceover Actor Needed for Video Project (La Center, WA)

I am a videographer looking for a male actor to do voiceover work for a video project I am working on. I am creating a promotional video for a client that needs narration. Unfortunately I am not able to pay much at this time. The most I can pay at this time is $40. This would be a great opportunity to gain experience and/or to add more to a resume. Previous voiceover work ideal, but not required. If interested, please email me at the above address. I will then get back to you and request an audio and/or video sample of your abilities. Thank you.
