Casting Call for Non-Union short film

Hello all,

I am currently casting for an upcoming short film. I am looking to cast the 4 remaining roles. This short film will be shot in HD and will be submitted to festivals galore! In a way this is a silent film, as there are no words, but you will be speaking during the different scenes, but in the final cut we will not hear any of what is being said, much like a music video if you need an example. Here is the breakdown of the characters.

Old Man: Male. Late 40's- Mid 50's, larger build, however not necessarily fat or buff,normal looking father figure, but with a few days growth, has a dark and secretive side. *Please note: you MUST be comfortable with doing a choreographed rape scene. It will be done with the utmost respect to the actors , but it does demand some pushing, shoving, throwing, etc.*

Girlfriend: Female. Late Teens(16-19), cute, attractive, under 5'11". I'm open to all hair types and ethnicity's.

Mother: Late 30's-40's. Caucasian. Typical mother looking, loving, hates her husband.

Father: Early- Mid 40's.Caucasian. Typical looking father, hates his wife, prefer either a mustache or beard(short)

This film will be a great short film with a lot of opportunity for improv and input. This is a NON-PAID NON-UNION short film. However you will be given food, credit, and copy, of course. Each scene will be done individually so to keep the crew and cast to a minimum. I work fast but I also work until we get what we need, but generally speaking, we can get what we need in half a day, so not much time will be required by the cast. I have a great deal of excitement for this film and as with all of my sets it is a lot of fun as well as very professional. Please email headshots and resumes to and in the subject line please specify which role you are submitting for. Thank you all very much!

Happy Submitting,

Kyle Buckland

Casting Call: Host for Educational Videos about the Court System

MetroEast Community Media is casting for a lead/host for a quick paced, stylized
segment based video series intended to educate the public about the court system
in Multnomah County. Auditions will be set Tuesday July 5th, 1pm to 7pm.

We're looking for an energetic, enthusiastic and well spoken female, between the
ages of 30 and 40 with a hip yet professional look to act as the host,
delivering complex and academic information in a fluid and fun manner, from a
variety of locations around Portland. The host acts as a "straight-woman" to a
slightly more comic "sidekick" but ideally has her own understated sense of
humor. Think Tina Fey or Ellen acting as a representative of the court system:
smart, up-beat, a little zany at times, always high energy, and able to walk the
line between serious and a little silly. Versatility is key.

This video series has a similar feel to shows like "Good Eats" and "Bill Nye the
Science Guy." (This model appeals to a broad audience, is stylized and quick
paced, visually interesting, and content heavy. The goal is to educate by
capturing and keeping audience interest.) The primary shooting is for 2 fifteen
minute videos, with several five minute pieces on related topics to follow.

Film or theatrical acting experience a must, and an academic or legal background
a plus, but not essential. Must be available some weekends, and some weekday

Timeframe: Primary shooting for the 2 fifteen minute videos will begin mid to
late July, and continue through the end of August and potentially the beginning
of September. Estimated total time commitment is 2 to 3 full weekends, and 7
half-days during the week or on a weekend. Specific dates TBD.

Compensation: Nominal gratuity TBD for key role.

This casting call is primarily for the host, however we are open to auditioning
duos who already have some chemistry working in their favor to present a
"straightwoman-sidekick" combo.

Please e-mail Emily (emily@...) with a resume and head shot, and if
possible a link to any online video samples or reel.

MetroEast Community Media is a local non-profit media center committed to using
media to invigorate civic engagement, inspire diverse voices and strengthen
community life. We believe passionately in the unrealized potential of
technology to build community by engaging people and organizations, including
the underrepresented. We support active participation in the democratic process
by providing people with access to communications technology and opportunities
to engage in civic dialogue.

Our facility is located at 829 NE 8th Street in Gresham, Oregon.

possible a link to any online video samples or reel.

This is for a fun scene in a local indie web series. Looking for an actresses to play a BLONDE who is one of a trio of "bad" girls recruited by a villain for a "job." This isn't a big action scene with big stunts. It is a character scene with "tough" talk and a bit of action and it will be fun. Some auditions will be held this Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30. No budget for pay at this time.

The scene will be shot later this Summer, but I'm looking for a group of potential candidates to call on when the time comes to provide the right mix of chemistry in portraying the 3 women. If interested, please send resume/photos and I'll send script. Thanks.
