This week's topic of discussion is quick and simple. What

Give some feedback in the chat box on what you think makes Portland unique.

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.

A couple weeks ago we held auditions for our film, 'The Tracking Game'. Many roles have been cast, but there are still a few yet to be. This is a very low budget film, but with high expectations. We plan to take this to many festivals and premiere it right here in Portland. This is a psychological thriller about a high school senior who gets his cell phone number mixed up with a con artists'.


SAM ELLIOT PIERCE- Lead role. Many lines. Senior in high school. He is stuck on his cell phone, trying to reason with an arms dealer gunning for a 60,000 dollar pay-up.

STAN- 30s or 40s. Plants a GPS chip in SAM's cell phone. Uses sleep darts to knock him and his friend out. A few scenes.

RICK- 20s, 30s or 40s. Sells Sam a suitcase for 15 bucks, which he claims to have marijuana in it. Whats really in the suitcase, however...well, you'll just have to find out at the end.

SNIPER #2- Any age, over 21 preferred. Scene at end of movie. He is very dimwitted, and is hired to assassinate Sam. Think Looney Toons, the big fat mobster guy who goes "Duhhhhh.....Yes boss. Right away, boss. Duhhhhhh......okey dokey." Or something like that. Mugsey, I think might have been his name? Or Rocky.

-We need all sorts of extras of all ages. There are high school scenes, party scenes, that we would like to have depth to it. The more the merrier.

Again, no pay due to an extremely low budget. If the movie brings in revenue, we can for sure work something out...

Thanks for your interest, and please respond ASAP as we would like to shoot in July. At least get started by then.
