Casting Lead Male Role


HEART is a 20 minute NARRATIVE short film, featuring EXPERIMENTAL elements.

The story is about Jonas and Kenvin Kierkowzki's struggle with their unique neuroses. Each of these brothers has chosen to deal with their involvement with the death of their younger brother in a different and troubling way. The film also addresses their shared boyfriend and this complex relationship.

The project will be directed by the talented team of Stephanie Hough and Taylor Turner. This will be their 7th short film together, and it will be the THESIS PROJECT of Hough's certificate program in film at the NORTHWEST FILM CENTER.

Lead Role
JONAS KIERKOWZKI: 27 - 35 year old male, average build. Jonas suffers from OCD-like neurosis that expresses itself in his obsession with creating minimalism environments in every facet of his life. The strict way in which he lives serves as a means to quell the guilt he feels as a result of witnessing his brother's childhood death. This is a very demanding role--subtle dialog requires that the actor will need to express many of these emotions internally and not be able to rely on situations or dialog to get across these ideas. Film experience required.

This is a "no-budget" film production, so NO monetary compensation can be offered.

Actors will be wonderfully fed, get the experience of a small, organized shoot and have the opportunity to use this film on their reel.

Production will occur in Spring 2012. There will be preparation time required for the actors with some unconventional rehearsing techniques.

Please be prepared to bring a resume with photo, and monologue to perform. Auditions will be
videotaped. They will be held at:

Location: NW Film Center 934 SW Salmon St, Portland, OR
Date: January 25th

Please send an email with resume and photos to schedule an audition time.

Casting call for two film projects in PDX (N. Portland)

We are casting for two projects here in Portland, one is comedic (a paying gig), the other is a character based drama with strong characters (non-paying).


A series of humorous shorts centered around a bar, satirizing sitcom conventions while developing an intriguing and complex ensemble of characters. Actors should be experienced in comedy. Several parts available, many with lines, some without. Most of the parts are for people between the ages of 21 and 35, but we will be considering men and women of all ages and backgrounds. This is an ongoing project, and if hired you will be payed per day. Compensation varies from part to part.


We are making a character-heavy 40 minute independent short film with a large cast, all speaking parts. This is ideal for people who are only now getting into acting, as we are looking for new faces. The more diverse the cast the better, so we will be considering men and women of all ages and backgrounds. Actors should be able to improvise from provided material, and should be comfortable with themes of infidelity, dishonesty, and heartbreak. Most of the people cast will work one day, and all actors will be given a copy of the film when it is finished, as well as opportunities to interact with the public at screenings, panels, et cetera. The project is an experiment in high-brow low-budget cinema, and will likely be a satisfying and freeing experience for everyone involved.

Please respond to this ad via e.mail, with a current head shot and any applicable experience. Make sure and specify which project you are interested in auditioning for. Auditions will be held Monday, January 23rd in North Portland, from 2:30pm to 5pm. Specific directions will be sent via e.mail.
