Auditions: Saturday, April 16, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Saturday, April 16, 2011.

We're gonna keep this chat going through the end of the week, so I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences surrounding this topic.

You've done your research to ensure that the audition is legitimate, and you've just received your audition time slot. You attend the audition, and it goes incredibly well, you received great feedback, and now you wait with anticipation to receive news about a callback. Giddy with excitement, you want to tell all of your friends, or even post on Facebook all about the audition. Whether before or after the audition, you want to share the news with friends and family, and even the world of Facebook.

But not so fast. Many seasoned actors will advice against sharing news of auditions, or even news of callbacks. If cast, this is exciting and can sometimes openly be shared, but actors are encouraged to keep their auditions and callbacks private. While there are many reason as to why, one of the biggest is that the audition process is a standard part of the job for an actor, but booking the job is what actually counts. Also, some of the big shows filming in Portland may have non disclosure agreements, meaning they are required to keep certain episode or character details quiet until the episode airs, and sharing information about your audition is in violation of this. So when you get called back for the role of a lifetime as the spy on Leverage, the producers and writers may not have publicized that they were bringing back the spy, and this news would have an effect on viewers, and even become an issue for those who enjoy watching the show every week. It may even jeopardize your ability to book the role.

A recent conversation took place on the social networking websites, where a local, professional actor, and very talented teacher and filmmaker wrote, "A car salesman doesn't post on his wall every time he shows a car to a customer."

For some of us, though, just getting the audition is a huge accomplishment, and is such a success that it deserves to be shared. Getting that callback is a huge validation that we did something right in the audition room, and caught someone's attention, and this is also worth telling friends, family, and Facebook pals. Sharing that success with the world of Facebook would provide the encouragement we need as actors to boost our confidence and push us to go up for more auditions.

There are definitely two ways to look at this situation, and I wanted to open up this discussion in our chat box. Do you share your auditions with anyone? Perhaps, only with mom and dad, close friends, and partners. Do you share the exciting news in a Facebook post? If you don't share the news, and you choose to keep this private, what are your specific reasons behind doing so?

Let's start up this week's chat and discuss your thoughts about posting auditions, callbacks, and even booked jobs for friends and family to see!

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.




We'll Fix It In Post Productions is looking for a few actors and actresses for a read through of our new feature film, the follow up to James vs Reality. The screenplay is a rough form right now, and we are holding a table read so I can get an idea of how it's sounding and also get some feedback on the project as a whole. While we're not casting for the actual film, this is an excellent way to get a foot in the door as everyone selected for the table read will moved straight into callbacks. We will provide beverages and snacks - the read will most likely be in Vancouver.

While there are several parts still open, there are two I'm focusing on with this ad listed below. NOTE THERE ARE NO CHILDREN'S ROLES - we welcome all adult actors/actresses who wish to have their information on file with us.

Britney - A girl in her early 20's, Britney is confident (to a fault) and pretty, but is also incredibly vain and a bit of an alcoholic.

Michael - Michael is in his late 40's/early 50's. He's a business type, starting to gray but is fairly handsome. He's a bit of a douche bag, but doesn't realize it.

A bit about my films: I'm currently working on a solo animated film 'The Chronicles of Nerm,' a sci-fi comedy that features several celebrity voice actors. My first live action film, 'James vs Reality' has won several film festivals here in the states and been accepted to several festivals internationally. James Vs Reality features incredible visual effects not often seen in indie films and last November's theatrical premiere was attended by over 525 people.

Please check out a couple quick links.

Thank you for reading.

Interviews with Aunt Gabby -- SAG - but you don't need to be SAG to be in it.

One of the co-leads is Adrienne King of Friday the 13th fame and the upcoming Lion's Gate release of The Butterfly Room

The film is highly commercial and is being shot at full broadcast quality with a full professional crew with extensive experience. Rated PG-13 -

Gabrielle “Gabby” Burkeshire married wealthy and traveled the world losing touch with her family. Now in her 50’s she finds herself widowed and dying of cancer. With no children of her own she sets her mind on reacquainting with her family to find the proper heir to her estate. With the help of her trusted personal assistant Manning, Aunt Gabby invites them all for a three day weekend at her estate to conduct interviews with each one and catch up on the lost years. As her home fills up with her siblings, nieces, and nephews, Aunt Gabby soon finds herself surrounded by her estranged family who also has lost touch with each other. She becomes the eye of an unsettled storm which has the family members dealing with unresolved issues, broken relationships, greed, backstabbing and emotional sadness. While Aunt Gabby learns about each person as an individual, they rediscover each other though laughter, tears and anger and just maybe they’ll find a second chance to learn what family means to them.

“Interviews with Aunt Gabby” is a character driven story with a true life sense of humor that is both funny and touching. As the people they are today unfold before her who will she choose?

The story is entitled, "Both Bitter and Sweet Was Persephone Inside Most Incomplete." It's a tale about a young girl made of chocolate who yearns to escape the candy store where she is imprisoned.

The shoot will take place over a weekend, near the end of May, and will be comprised of 2 days of work. We will be paying $75/ day for the shoot days ($150), although we may need additional, non-paying time, for make-up tests and test-shoots.

We are looking for a young girl with an innocent, pretty, and unique face... tall, lean, and graceful, between the ages of 18-25. Hair color is of no consequence. Our target audience is young adults / teenagers... so please don't apply if you do not represent or look the age. Any ethnicity can apply for this role. Modeling / acting experience is a plus.

Please note: There will be full make-up... as we must change the actress / model's skin into a chocolate texture... but only the face, arms, neck and legs. Our SFX artist will be using a synthetic make-up which is non-abrasive, does not dry the skin and does not cause any allergic reactions.

Again: We are looking for a young girl with a very pretty, very unique look.
