 Casting Actors & Actresses For A Kickstarter

International Criminals have captured an elite special agent. A lone female agent goes to rescue him.

We are making a short melodrama-action parody & looking to film a single scene to put on Kickstarter. This is very low budget mini-short. There's no pay other than a copy of the mini-short, free food & some photos of you in costume looking dangerous. If the Kickstarter is successful we will be able to include some form of payment for a longer short & would be interested in using the same actors.

At least shoulder length hair, preferably red or willing to color. We may have a wig but prefer natural hair.
Age: Early 20s to Early 30s
Average to tall in height with a small to average build

Actors for short video (Portland)

Looking for actors for short video about the two Portland hostels. In need of two guys. Need to be in your early to mid 20s, comfortable being in front of the camera, and saying some short lines. Super great if you have an accent. We want you to look like you are a traveler staying at the hostel. Travelers are coming from mainly Asia and Europe and you need to look the part. These videos are going to be fun and fast paced.

Will need a commitment for a day. Flexible with when this happens to accommodate the people we want to use. Done before the end of July. In return you will get the video, $50.00, and food along the way. I know, not much, but this is being done thru a small grant to help promote the hostels and hosteling in general.

If interested, please send a photo (make them a reasonable size) or two of yourself, contact info, and share where you are from if you like. Also send your availability in June and July.

This ad is being done by the videographer and not the hostels, so please do not contact them directly. I will be in touch with the people we feel will work best for the video. Yes, I have posted a similar ad a week ago. So if you already responded, no need to respond again (this does not mean if you responded I am not interested, just trying to get a bigger pool).

Thank you,

Male (25-40's) and Female (20's) Actors Needed

I'm helping produce a short film in Portland. Part of our pre production process involves performing what amounts to a dry run of the film to make sure our ideas/shot list stands up. We shoot the film quickly (no lights, skeleton crew etc) with a Canon 5D then edit the footage so we can get a sense of the pacing and to make sure our ideas are communicating. The process is also extremely useful in terms of figuring out how we want to block scenes. This is more than a stand-in part, a performance is required, but I should reiterate that none of this footage will be used in the final film (which isn't even cast yet and isn't scheduled to shoot until mid July). This exercise should take no more than two and a half hours and it's usually pretty fun and relaxed. The location is a coffee shop near the Art Museum. We're hoping to shoot this upcoming weekend (2nd and 3rd of June) but are flexible when it comes to scheduling, so whatever works for the performers works for us. We've made a few films around town, you can check them out at and my personal site is at

Andy Walsh's life seems to be going nowhere. He's under-appreciated, overweight, and generally disrespected. His only source of solace in found in an unhealthy food addiction. So it seems like a perfect match when he meets a mysterious and beautiful woman who not only likes to cook, but also loves to feed. But not everything isas it seems. Andy soon discovers secrets about her past as he descends into a worldof murder, lies, and of course, plenty of food.

Character BIOS


Angela is an attractive, exotic,and mysterious woman. She speaks with utmost confidence and seduction, especially when food is involved. She seems sweet but she hides a dark past that manifests itself in the form of lies and angry outbursts.

[ANDY] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 21-35] [ETHNICITY: WHITE] [WEIGHT: 150-300] [HEIGHT: 5'6-6'1]

Andy is friendly, likeable, and trusting but can't seem to get what he wants in life. He escapes his feelings of dissatisfaction by over-eating. He soon meets a mysterious woman who encourages his indulgences as his sanity slowly crumbles.


Mr. Anderson is Andy's Boss. He is charming, confident and strangely old-fashioned. He is worldly and has an odd sort of wisdom about him.


Jeff works with Andy. He is brash, conceited, and arrogant. He has everything Andy wants including his girlfriend and his job. He is competitive, placing value on career and material wealth.


Cassandra is Andy's kind, sweet co-worker. She is Andy's secret crush, but is in a relationship with the over-achieving Jeff. She is the only person who respects and appreciates Andy, seeing him for who he really is.


Rebecca is Andy's cynical, humorous sister. She wants only the best for her brother, but has her own life to lead, and doesn't always have time to help him find his way.

Need Staff for Summer Drama Camp

Hello Everyone!

I am looking to fill a couple of positions for our summer camps happening June 18th-June 22nd.

Assistant Director
Monday-Friday, June 18th-22nd 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
The assistant director assists the director in creating a child-centered show with a Grimm's Fairy Tale theme. There are 25 kids signed up for this inventive drama camp that culminates with a darling showcase of pieces that the kids have created. The Director and AD will have a full lesson plan for the camp, including three original Grimm's scripts, but the kids will be making their own sets and costumes. The AD will be primarily responsible for parent communication, overall camp management, leading drama activities and games, and helping to produce the show.
$350 for the week, must be available all days!

Production Manager
Monday-Friday, June 18th-June 22nd, flexible hours
Each production manager will "float" from camp to camp delivering supplies, and assisting with three productions on an "as-needed" basis. In prior years, production managers have procured donated or borrowed items to use in our simple productions, delivered extra snacks/programs, or assisted the directors and AD's on set-building days. There is a small but workable budget for sets/costumes/supplies for each camp. Must have reliable transportation, and be available most hours during that week in case of emergency. Must be available to help check kids in to one of the camps early Monday morning. (8:15 a.m., Monday, June 18th.)
