Auditions: Monday, May 23, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Monday, May 23, 2011.

There are so many different techniques that actors can utilize to achieve a solid performance. Many local teachers focus on different styles, and some may work perfectly, while others just aren't for you. Whether it's Stanislavsky, Viewpoints, Meisner, or just being you, there is a reason so many people rely on these techniques when focusing on training and improving your acting abilities.

What are some of the techniques you have used in your training, and what have you actually applied when working on set? What works for you, and what doesn't? Sometimes, depending on the role, being a method actor is the best way for me to get a true, honest performance, while others may laugh at method actors and think it's unnecessary to go that far to get a good performance.

Whatever works for you is what you should stick with, but it's always interesting to learn about other actor's techniques, and what your process is to achieve that perfect, natural performance.

Share with us what your process is and what techniques work best for you. Which teachers have you been drawn to that have helped you get that solid performance. Do you use different techniques for different character types? Is your process for film the same as it would be when preparing to perform on stage?

Let's get this week's topic of discussion going

As always, 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.

Casting actors for an indie drama

I’m directing a short feature, a character piece or drama, that is to be produced as a diy effort. I’m looking for actors (experience is not required) interested in taking on roles in the film, described as follows:

A woman, who has just moved in along with her boyfriend, stops by to introduce herself to the couple next door. But their visit is cut short when he interrupts them. As they continue to see each other, the couple becomes concerned about the neighbors’ troubled relationship. They find out later that the woman’s sister has killed herself, leaving them to question why.

I see the characters as having these features: the two couples are both in their mid to late 20s, the neighbor woman the youngest.

I have other stuff to be produced. For more information and details about other projects, visit

need newborn baby (June birth?) for feature film 1 scene (PDX/Vanc area)

Shooting a scene for a family dramedy feature film - will be in Late July or Mid-August. Will need a quick insert shot of a baby being held by an actress playing the mom- would like one month old or so but can fudge the age if need be. The baby is supposed to be a girl in the film. The shoot will be very fast -we would need to have you dress your baby in the outfit we provide -- typical cute pink baby clothes-- then we can get the shot pretty quick, then let you change your baby back into his/her clothing and we will be using a doll for the wide shots. The film is PG-13. Your baby would receive a credit in the film and your family will receive a finished DVD copy plus photos as a keepsake. We are low-budget, however we may be able to provide a gift or some other token of appreciation.

Please email your info and please ask all the questions you want. We can send all sorts of information to prove we are a legit film including the whole script for approval. Just not wanting to put it all out here on craigslist as we are keeping under the radar for this production.

Thank you!
