New Faces for Screentests
WHAT:  Screentests
WHO:   Any actor that we have NOT shot before
WHEN:  This Friday, Oct. 19, from noon to 4:00 pm
WHERE:   The Fremont Room (on the mezzanine) at the Heathman Hotel downtown.

We would like to shoot some short screentests so we've got some new faces on the list that we send out to clients every week.

The script we will use for the screentest is about 4 minutes long so these take us about 10 minutes to shoot.

Please reply to me with a headshot if you are interested and we'll get you on the schedule and send you the script to review. 

You will just be sitting at a table, reading off of a teleprompter so you do NOT need to memorize.   Dress does not matter.   If you want to come casual, fine.   If you want to wear a jacket, fine.   The main thing is the delivery.

I make marketing videos for guys who sell software on the internet.   Most of the software is for traffic generation, SEO, automated website building, etc.

Pretty dry stuff, usually the actor just sits in some setting (usually a fancy house) and reads off of a teleprompter.   The 'normal' sessions usually take about 3 hours but occasionally we get a bigger one that we spread over the course of 2 or three days.   The pay starts at $100/hr.

If you are curious, here is a short list of just some of the actors we've used over the past year or so.   If you know one of them, ask them about their experience.

Brian Allard - Josh Stenseth - Joe Healy - Andy Hillstrom - Jonah Weston - Doren Elias - Christy Bigelow - Andrew Bray - Jason Glick - Angie Collins - Gilberto Martin Del Campo - Mario Calcagno - Rich Nowacki - Spencer Conway - Kevin Martin - Corey Brunnish - Jared Miller - Nathan Crosby - Lindsae Klein - Josh Mead - Schuyler Schmid - Sam Hawkins - Dave Maier - Joshua May - John Hall and many many others.

Thank you - hope to hear from you soon!

New Web-Series holding auditions
Ladies and Gents- Here are the breakdowns for Producer/Writer the fantastic Mr. Nate Carlson Enigma - The Series and audition details.

Auditions are to be held this Saturday October 20th at Kelly's Olympian from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 21 and over please. Any actors under that age wanting to submit please email resume and headshot to thescreenkid@gmail.com

If chosen for an audition you will be
notified in advance with sides. This is not a cold read.


DANIELLE "DANNY" HAYS-30’s-CHAS's live-in roommate. District Attorney for the city. Is openly gay. She barely has enough money to scrape by (as is the case with everyone in the city). She quickly resorts to using her temper, especially professionally.

HUGH "FRITZ" FRITZHUGH-30-CHAS's best friend. He's a bartender. Combination of Jack Black's persona crossed with Tony Stark (Avengers) wit. Dry humored but really intelligent. The annoying best friend who you love to have but don't want around for too long.

TERRANCE GRISHAM-POLICE CHIEF-50’s-By the book most of the time but when pushed he is willing to stray from the norm.

GREG RIPLEY-CHAS’ BEST FRIEND on the Police Force-30’s-Tough as nails, the meaner version on Han Solo

ALICIA REED-30’s-ALICIA plays CHAS's girlfriend. She is a pivotal point of his life. She is a quick thinker, fast on her feet and is his complete counterpart. Can analyze any situation and find a good solution for any argument she gets in. She is able to survey her surroundings and escape safely. Easy to talk to, warm, but also can be very firm with people when needed.

This pilot will be directed by Kenneth Luba!

Thanks P-Town

We have many roles to fill, all ages and types -
Once submitted those selected  will be sent sides and offered a time to read within our casting days.

Audition slots for "Throng" are filling up fast.

It's an exciting non-union short film that will be produced over the next few months and be out around Christmas.

Throng Synopsis

A group of friends embark on a time-bending and genre-spanning journey in search of the meaning of life. They are pursued by an enemy taking different shapes and forms that adapts to hunt them in each new environment. Ultimately a story about friendship and the meaning of life and death, "Throng" is nonetheless infused with a light heart and powerful comedic sensibilities, ensuring it doesn't broach the realm of melodrama and become a total piece of shit... it's funny!

Casting will take place at our studio located in Vancouver, WA  and will begin as soon as Oct 11th.
Production will begin very soon, while there is no pay and this is a NON union project, this will have a fast turn around  and you will receive copy and IMDb credit in a VERY timely manner. Our effects teams has already finished work on certain elements that will drive this story forward.
