Actors needed for AI Directing class

To all Portland actors,

I teach at The Art Institute of Portland - Digital Film and Video division. One of my classes is "Directing Actors." The main purpose of this class is to give future film directors experience and skills in communicating and working with actors. The class is held on Wednesday nights from 6pm to 9:45pm for 10 weeks. (It started during the first week of April) Around the 3rd or 4th week I start bringing in actors for on-camera scene work. I'll have a variety of exercises for the directors Some will have you critique their communication and directorial skills. We'll talk about that as we get closer. Let me know what Wednesday nights might work for you. By the way, it's not necessary for you to be there the entire time. I'll also have the directors burn a DVD of your work for you. I hope this will work for you. Let me know.

casting call for fun special effects videos (Portland Area)

Heya Portland actors,

I am a local filmmaker in the Portland area. I have equipment and some ideas for some short length action videos that I want to produce and I'm looking for some people that would be interested in getting together like once or twice a week and help put together some of the scenes that I have planned out. I'm looking for actors and anyone else that would like to help behind the scenes as well. My hope is to shoot videos similar to Freddie W. at and FinalCutKing at

I hope/plan on making an online series with short videos released every week that focus on action, comedy, suspense, that incorporates some sort of amazing special effect in every new video. I'm looking for both men and women in all demographics. The videos should be a lot of fun to shoot. It's mainly just for fun now, so no pay. Just want to see if anyone wants to get together and make some fun action videos. Mostly running and shooting involved in the videos along with some wide-eyed dramatic looks and whatnot. Currently I am free to shoot anytime and I'm eager to get this project started.

If you are interested then shoot me (action pun) an email and we'll go from there.

Thanks for looking!

The Story: In a small English village, Penelope Toop, a former actress and now Vicar’s wife, receives a surprise visit from an old actor friend, Clive Winton. Clive finds himself the victim of multiple cases of mistaken identity when he innocently disguises himself as a vicar to avoid gossip. They valiantly try to evade a cockney maid, a neighboring busybody and assorted clergymen but things get hilariously complicated when the police show up looking for an escaped spy. A classic British farce that has left audiences exhausted with laughter since it debuted in London in 1944!

Ida (a maid): (18 – ?) Does not suffer fools lightly but is loyal and playful enough to join in on the schemes. Must have a Cockney accent, although an Irish one could work. Must be strong enough to catch/drag/move Miss Skillon.

Set during World War II, this Pulitzer Prize-winning musical tells the romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and prejudices. The show is based on the 2008 Broadway revival of South Pacific which won seven Tony Awards.

Nellie Forbush is a nurse working overseas during World War II. She falls in love with a wealthy, older man who owns a plantation there. When she discovers that the mother of his two small children was a Tonkinese woman, the prejudices she grew up with in Arkansas prevent her from accepting his offer of marriage. Her friend, Lt. Cable, has a fiancĂ©e back home, but speaks of her with a sense of duty rather than feelings of love. When he meets a young, innocent Tonkinese girl, he too is forced to face his prejudices. The beloved score’s songs include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “This Nearly Was Mine” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.”

Music for South Pacific is by Richard Rodgers, lyrics are by Oscar Hammerstein II, book is by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan was the original director. Ron Daum directs Lakewood’s production

short film shoot seeks house! (portland area)

Short film shooting weekend of april 28/29th. Well known Pdx director, cast and crew.

Seeking English Tudor home in Portland area for a shoot April 28-29. Storybook feel; some grandeur, but not modern. A little old, but elegant without being too ritzy/perfect. Think Gretel coming to the Witch's house. Beautiful, but treacherous. Classic, but eccentric. A little set back from road - driveway/staircase/up on edge of road, cliff. See photo for prototype.

Interior is spacious, cold, not too cozy, classic, similar to exterior feel. Not too modern, a little pretentious (new wealth aiming to look old/classy, but not quite). Needs a staircase; preferably in the open, so we can see someone walking up it. And a bedroom to dress like a boy's room from the 80s.

Exterior garden has same feel: trees/ivy/flowers; pretty, taken care of, but not overly manicured. Trellises, paths, ivy-covered wall, gardens of mixed (not too perfect) flowers...

Please email if interested. There is a small budget to pay you for your location:)
