Auditions: Friday, April 01, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Friday, April 01, 2011.

Welcome to April! Spring is starting to pick up with exciting, professional film work, and general auditions for theaters. The Portland Area Theatre Alliance auditions are this weekend, and this is an opportunity for stage actors to audition before many local theater companies. Are you participating? Tell us about your experiences preparing, auditioning, and whether you receive callbacks.

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.

Actress 55-65 Needed for Corporate Gig

We are looking for a caucasian female 55-65, grey hair preferred, for a corporate promotional video for a mobile imaging company. The shoot is on April 7 and you will only need to be there for several hours, with minimal dialogue if any. Mostly, the video relies on voiceover, so it's more about appearing natural, comfortable, etc. Very short time commitment and easy work but good connections and something to add to the resume. I am a feature film writer-director, with an aim to film my next several movies in Portland, but I run a corporate media production company as well so it'd be nice to meet more actors and actresses in Portland, my original home city. Please send me your headshot(s) and resume. Thanks!

Compensation: $50
