Auditions: Wednesday, March 02, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Wednesday, March 02, 2011.

The discussions have been at a minimum this week, and I'm hoping this is because we are all busy auditioning and booking work.

I noticed that one of the casting calls being posted today is for today, which is another last minute call, and a challenge we have recently discussed. There was some good input as to why this may happen, so feel free to look through previous chats for this information, and feel free to review the topics of discussion mentioned in blog posts earlier this week.

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.

The more people who we have, the more face-time/romanticization we can give to the extras. There will be tons of food. Also, beer and wine is on sale upstairs. E-mail if you are interested. :) The film is called MoonPi and the trailer can be found by typing in, "The Official MoonPi Trailer," on YouTube.

Camp Directors to discuss potential student concerns and to weigh in
on staff decisions. There is no additional charge for the CIT program,
even though CITs are on campus during part of staff orientation and
clean up. Enrollment in the CIT program requires both a student
application and a staff application. CITs are not guaranteed work in
future summers, but the training is designed to give them a leg up for
future employment.

encouraged to apply!
