Casting Call for The Disappearance of Benjamin (The Art Institute of Portland)

We are currently casting a short film, The Disappearance of Benjamin. There are several roles that need to be cast by local talent in their 20's.

Auditions will take place at The Art Institute of Portland from noon-4pm on February 26th.

Please reply to with a head-shot and resume' if you have them, and we will contact you to schedule an audition and supply you with sides. (actors of all experience levels welcome to audition)

Film Title: The Disappearance of Benjamin
-Benjamin is pushed out of his group of friends after they discover his charming doppelganger.

Open parts include -
Benjamin; early twenties plain nondescript tee shirts and simple jeans. solid colors. he doesn't care about clothes, he's not interested in how he presents himself physically. he has shaggy hair, because he doesn't get regular haircuts. he always has a book in his hand and a few in his backpack. Nervous mannerisms - he touches his face a lot when he's talking.

Celine; Early twenties, comfortable clothes, she's not out to impress anyone, but she could if she wanted to. Pretty face - minimal make up, longish hair, usually pulled back in a pony tail - she just doesn't have time anymore. Her mom watches the baby during the day, then works at night. Celine goes to school all day, then watches her baby while mom's at work. She's pretty tired and rundown a lot of the time. She values her time in the coffee shop as "drama free" down time.

Lucy; Flamboyant. Wears bright colorful clothes and peasant shirts. She buys random things at garage sales and thrift shops and just throws it all together. Floppy hats. Big ass purses with lots of stuff in it. Very sunny and out going. Interested in people and always willing to see the best in them. Wide eyed, in her late teens she's the youngest person at the table. She's an art class kind of girl - newer to college she's being exposed to new ideas and people for the first time and is loving it. She's really cute, but not as conventionally pretty as Celine.

Trevor; Early twenties. Neat dresser, might be wearing a plain black teeshirt or a nicer shirt with a collar, but it's always tucked in. Everything is very utilitarian. He wears a nice backpack which he keeps very neat and orderly, and he carries a multi tool and a pocket knife. Clean shaven with very short hair - it's easier to take care of. Very comfortable in his own skin.

Mark; Also early twenties. Very neatly dressed. button down shirt and slacks. or button down shirt and a tie, but with jeans. In other words he's dressing close to professional, but always with a little twist. clean shaven. hair the same length as Benjamin, but it's been slicked back and styled a little bit. He obviously puts a lot of thought and attention to how he presents himself. He's comfortable in his own skin and in any social situation. Superficially charming he's easy with a smile, but it might not register in his eyes.

Manos; again early twenties. My visualization of Manos is probably the hardest to cast, but ideally he is a big guy with a big beard. Lots of piercings and tattoos. A social butterfly, everybody in town knows him and loves him. Extremely gregarious, but chill to the bone. In the past he'd of been a giant barbarian who walks into a tavern with a giant war hammer, throws it on the bar, orders a giant flagon of grog and instantly starts taking to everyone like he's known them their whole lives. His tee shirts have retro nintendo games or obscure metal bands on them. He might be wearing spikes or chains, but it's not meant to be scary or off-putting. It's just the way he likes to dress.

This is a very character driven piece, and will be a great addition to your reel.

FATHER type for short film (Vancouver)

Hi we have completed 90% of the principal photography of a short film from award winning director Chris Wilson - - his most recent short has gone on to play at over 25 festivals and WON three - he WON Dragoncon and is up for 4 more awards at an upcoming LA festival. Here is a link for the trailer of that film.

We are now needing to cast the father for one line of dialog-- it's a cutaway scene so it was not needed during the bulk of our shooting.The short is called PILLOW FIGHT - two girls (over 18) get into an epic Kill Bill style pillow fight. (no nudity) these actresses trained for months from a pro stunt/fight choreographer - and did an amazing job. Our DP is Phil A. Anderson. Go to to check out the very impressive Philip Allister Anderson.

This is a just for fun short inbetween two feature SAG films. But will be highly promoted and submitted to festivals.

You can find screen grabs and info on the Pillow Fight -movie Facebook page.

Age 45-55 -must look very "dad" and be able to scream and yell. Frustration over the noise they make fighting is the jist of the line. We will NOT be holding live auditions and strictly casting through demo reels and phone auditions.

2 hour shoot tops in Vancouver. Will have copy for your reel in lightning speed as the film is already nearly edited and done. Copy includes an actual data file of the film, a file of just your scene as well as the fully packaged DVD featuring the cover by Portland Pinups photographer Mike Long.

Please send headshot/resume reel links or other links to work you have done.

Costa Rehab auditions (Portland, OR)

Book of Dreams Productions will hold auditions for its spring show, COSTA REHAB by local playwright Rich Rubin, for a May 24-June 23 run. I'm calling this officially an "unpaid" gig, but if we get good audience numbers to come see it, chances are you'll get something.


Wheeler and Corso, two injured Iraq veterans, are recuperating in the rehab unit of a stateside Army hospital. Their friendship is based on a profane camaraderie and a shared, if unstated, experience of war. Both men, however, are bored and sliding towards burnout, worn down by the weight of their injuries and the impersonal face of the Army bureaucracy. The arrival of Davis, a third injured vet, serves to rejuvenate the other two soldiers, providing them with a fresh, if unconventional, mission to focus on. Their subversive quest on Davis's behalf leads to a renewed sense of hope for all three of them.

Corso -- male, early twenties
Wheeler -- male, early twenties
Lewicki -- female, mid-thirties
Cramer -- female, mid-twenties
Davis -- male, early twenties
Cinnamon -- female, late twenties [This role has already been cast.]

Respond to this post for audition location and requirements. Thanks.
