SAG - Punk actress (17 - 20) (Portland)


I know you want an excuse to dye your hair. Perhaps get a really funky cut? And when people ask you why you can shrug and say, "Oh, I had to get it done for this series I'm shooting."

We are still looking for young (17 - 20) women to audition for the role of Alysa for "Suburban Apocalypse", shooting here in Portland.

Paying gig. SAG New Media agreement. Teaser shooting in the next few weeks and episodes shooting in the fall.


Auditions are this Saturday (July 28) by invitation only.

Here's the character description:

Alysa - Punk hair and a sense of fashion held over from the late 80's make up the colorful plumage of Alysa. Wise cracking, loud and often abrasive Alysa has her own way forcing her way through the world. Speaking in rhymes and alliterations is Alysa's way of speaking: as creative and unique as her appearance. A hard, crusty and seldom bathed exterior disguises her emotional core. With her friend Shelly she's often sweet and corny.

Compensation: SAG New Media Agreement
