Small role for female in feature film

We are currently casting a small role in a independent feature film. The part is for an attractive female in her twenties and takes place in an office setting. It would require three, 2 to 4 hour days of shooting. Although there is a fully developed script, improvisation is highly encouraged. As such, a small role could become larger with the right person.

Professional headshot and resume not required, but please send a photo and your background information for further details.

Hi there,

I own a small company in town that is doing some video work for our business. We are recording video lessons for an English language product we sell. It's very easy work, and will be a lot of fun. You will be doing some improv, some reading off a script.

We want to start this shoot right away, so send an email if you are interested. Also please enclose a resume and a current photo of yourself. We will take a look and get in touch if you look like a good fit for the part.

If you include your phone number, there is a better chance we will get in touch (just because sometimes that's faster.)

Thanks a lot, and we hope to speak with you!

Tango-proficient dancers/actors for student film (Oregon City)

We're looking for three attractive. mid-20's actors/dancers for lead roles in a student film, two female and one male. Besides acting ability, experience in Argentine Tango will be major focus: Lead/follow flexibility is a plus, and we'll be looking for nice-looking ganchos, boleos, and other dramatic moves that'll look good on camera.

A good wardrobe would be helpful, as we'll probably be needing actors to supply their own costumes--

Female #1 Happy-go-lucky, innocent, upbeat character: should wear a sun dress, light, warm colors such as yellow.
Female #2 Dark, sultry, brooding character, almost gothic. should wear "Little black dress," predominantly black clothes and accesories.
Male: Charming but simple. Wears greys and neutral tones.

This will be a dialogue-free story about two girls competing one guy's attention.
Note: we're not affiliated with Tango Silent films (TSF).

Message me for more details if you're interested. Portfolios welcome!

Need Potential Drama Teachers for Instructional Video, April 5th

Are you an actor who is wanting to start teaching drama to kids?

We are shooting a video "How to Teach Drama to Kids," on Thursday, April 5th from 10-4 at a studio in NE Portland, and I am looking for potential drama instructors who might want to be in the video. This is a workshop I have delivered in many local schools, and recently for Kaplan Early Learning-to train 120 of their after-school instructors. You may already know some of what I cover, but you may also pick up some new techniques/activities. You would get "credit" on the video, lunch, free lattes/coffee drinks and a post-production copy when it's done.

Please let me know if this is of interest to you. I am looking for about ten teachers, so if you are unable to participate, please feel free to share this with someone you feel may benefit.

The Young Players

Janea Dahl is the Director of The Young Players, Oregon's largest drama outreach organization. YP runs in over a hundred local schools and employs 30-50 teaching artists every year. Janea offers drama integration workshops to schools locally, and for organizations across the US. In 2009, she created a website that offers a wealth of curriculum for drama teachers worldwide.

Need Teenagers for Fun Instructional Video

Hi Everyone,

We are shooting a video, "Fifty Drama Games for Kids, and Educators!"

The video will be featured on a website that I created for drama teachers all over the world.

Do you know a teenager who would like to be a part of helping teachers and kids everywhere learn to play these amazing games?

We are shooting on Monday-Wednesday April 2-4th, from approximately 10-4 each day. We are looking for about ten students each day/about six teenagers each day (ages 13-18). Each student would spend one day working with one of our engaging instructors in a group, learning about fifteen games, and playing them on camera. We will provide lunch and snacks.

This would mean taking missing school for one day. I tried to book weekends, but it was virtually impossible with space/crew considerations. As an educator, I do believe that this can be a valuable learning experience. Students will not only get to spend a day learning new theatre games, they will get to experience what it is like to make a film. They will learn some key terminology, and gain an understanding of what the various people on a production set do.

Every participant will receive credit in the video, and a post-production copy when it's done!

If you know of someone who would like to participate, have them send an email as soon as possible to Here's what to include:

Day(s) Available

Please reply as soon as you can so that we can organize the groups of kids before sending out all of the details. We will need parents permission for students to miss school.

I look forward to hearing from you!
