Auditions: Monday, October 08, 2012

This post contains auditions posted on Monday, October 08, 2012.

Thank you so much to everyone who has already provided feedback about using Craigslist as a resource in the Portland area.  If anyone else would like to chime in, go for it!  I will be resuming my Seattle blog soon, but it will take some time to get this back up and running.

Craigslist:  Ever since the "adult" section disappeared, it has become harder to determine the legitimate ads from those that are either "adult" related, or scams.  I don't want anything to ever happen to someone attending an audition found on this blog from Craigslist.  As a working actor, I have booked a number of paid gigs using Craigslist, but am always using my best judgement on what I reply to.
  • What are your thoughts on using Craigslist as a resource in Portland, Oregon to find work.  Have you had any success with this?

  • Do you feel I should remove Craigslist as one of my sources on this blog to make it more professional for everyone visiting?

  • For those in crew/behind the scenes roles, do you use Craigslist when seeking actors/crew for your projects?  Have you had any success?
I am considering removing Craigslist as a source on my blog altogether, but wanted to reach out to the community before I do this to get some feedback.  Chat in the box below. 

Also, for those of you who travel up to the Seattle area for work, which I know this number to be growing, would you want me to start back up the Seattle Auditions Blog again?  There is plenty of paid work there, but I didn't know if this was in demand. 
  • Do you currently travel to the Seattle area for work, and would you benefit from a Seattle Auditions Blog?   Chat in the box below.
 Thanks for visiting the blog.

 'foreign' actors with accents needed
Hi -

I have 4 short video testimonials I need to shoot.   They are only about a minute long, but each actor needs to have a specific 'look' and accent appropriate to the location.

I need actors (who would APPEAR TO BE) from these 4 locations (all male preferably):

1)  Hawaii (the ideal person would have a picture of himself actually IN Hawaii with their wife or significant other...)

2)  Thailand

3)  Dubai

4)  On this last one, the look is not important, but the person needs to be able to speak Brazilian Portuguese (NOT European Portuguese).

If you fit the bill for one of these please contact me.   It will take us about 5 minutes to shoot, I can actually come to you with the camera and a portable teleprompter.   The pay is $100 for each.

Brand New Film Production Facility seeks Exec Level Admin Assistant B (Portland)
We are in the planning stages of a major film production facility in Portland and need to complete portions of our written planning in three weeks, so you must be able to start immediately. This is a great opportunity for growth, especially if your goals are related to the motion picture and television industries.

We are seeking an administrative assistant (with executive level skills) to work as a right hand person, working side by side with the Project Planning Strategist. He is a fast paced east coaster (NYC), and quite picky, so you must be able have thick skin and work without much guidance. If you require extensive training or instruction on each task, this is not the right position for you.

Your job will consist of researching information, compiling data, running errands, scheduling appointments and updating the schedule and general administrative duties. You will also be working with members of the Planning Team that are based on the east coast.

It is important that you're be able to honestly say you lack certain skills when a task is presented to you. No one knows how to do everything, so if you're presented with a task that's beyond your abilities, we'd rather find an alternative solution, rather than have to start something over that wasn't done properly.

The pay is $15 per hour and we're looking for at least 40 hours per week. While we know this is low for this temporary position, if you are what we're looking for during this planning stage, then you'll be able to stay on and continue to work with us as we build and open our new facilities. We have very big plans and this is a great project to join.

Please include a phone number along with whatever you think is appropriate to send us in an email in order to get this job.

Available to start immediately
Self starter and complete tasks with basic introductory instructions
Excellent business writing skills with good grammar, and spelling
Researching skills - (this doesn't mean that you just know how to Google things)
Mac user - PC only users wont work with our current Mac-based workflow

Preferred, but not mandatory:
Owning your own MacBook Pro (we have one if you don't)
Film Production experience, knowledge, and industry vocabulary
Knowledge of major construction projects
Line Producer or UPM skill-set
