Auditions: Tuesday, March 29, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

Let's continue this chat throughout the week and talk about extra work, student films, and deferred payment gigs. I know that a lot of people have shared their feedback and advice on accepting non-paid work, and there have been quite a few heated arguments on PDX Backstage about this in the past, but how do you feel about deferred payment gigs, where you could possibly do the work if the film has investors involved once they see the final product, or once it hits the film festival circuit. How do you look at extra work, where you are getting visibility on TNT shows, and feature films being shot locally, but you are making minimum wage doing it. Students films have always been encouraged to the actor just starting out because they walk out of it with footage for their reel, but how do you feel about seasoned actors doing student films?

This can be a very touchy subject sometimes because I know that filmmakers are not always able to pay, but they are still producing high quality work, while respecting and featuring their actors involved. Share your thoughts, input, and experiences, and let's start in on this topic for next week a few days early.

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.

Choreographer for Wizard of OZ


I am in dire need of a choreographer for 2 dance pieces for OZ - the Scarecrow/Dorothy Dance & the Jitterbug Dance (we aren't using the entire piece). I know this is insanely short notice, but unfortunately, the choreographer I had lined up has bailed at the last minute.

Our current rehearsal schedule for teaching/working on these dances is:
3/30/11 - 3-5pm
4/6/11 - 3-5pm
4/13/11 - 3-5pm

I can add some time into the schedule, but would need to work that out with the choreographer. There is pay involved! If you are interested & available these dates, please let me know ASAP.

Thank you!
