This post contains auditions posted on Thursday, March 01, 2012.

Let's get a chat going, like the old days. Are you currently pursuing acting full time, or do you have a day job? In Portland, Oregon, with film really picking up, and lots of theater auditions right around the corner, are you able to support yourself on acting alone, or do you have to work a day job to pay the bills?

Actors/Modeling: 3 "Techs" & 1 "Foreman/Boss" Renewable Energy (Vancouver, WA)

We are looking for 3-4 clean cut guys. Ideally two to three technician kind of 'Les Schwab" looking guys who look like they know about machines. The technicians would wear white t-shirts and then we provide a workshirt to go over it. Then one older "boss/foreman" looking guy just wears a blue button down shirt and a white button down shirt (his own) and also possibly business casual.

The shoot will be for two hours of smiling for a camera in a shop or saying lines on video. If you've got a couple of hours and want to help promote the coolest thing to help the environment then please send us a headshot or even a youtube video of you in it. Would like to shoot this Sunday, March 4th at noon.

Thank you and look forward to working with you!

Voice Actor (Forest Grove OR)

Student project looking for a female ages 25-40 for narration gig for a 20 minute film. This is an unpaid position but will pay for commute to and from Forest Grove.

The film is a drama following four college students as they learn about loss and moving forward. The gig is the voice of the main character reflecting on the experiences that she's gone through.
She's sarcastic, witty, but very down-to-Earth and wise for her age.

Please include in your e-mail a voice recording (prefer mp3) of the following text:

"My name is Emma Elise Schwartz. That's me roughly ten years
ago. This was my thinking place; Elisha and I (you'll meet Eli later) used to come
here regularly. He and I were in what the people in the movie business called love; I called
it surreal. You probably have no interset in this place I'm sure, but this little nook holds
more memories and brings back more emotions than any other place I've ever been. I'll never
forget this day. But like I said, this moment is only a little important to my story."

For any questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail me.
