Hi all,

Portland Revels (producers of the Christmas Revels at the Scottish Rite - Dec 7 thru 16, 2012) is looking to cast a 55+ African American man in a small supporting role in this year's production.

This is a paid position although Revels cannot currently hire AEA actors. Inexperienced actors are encouraged to apply. This is a small role in a very supportive environment.

 Actress needed for short film (Vancouver Wa)


I am looking to cast an actress for an indie short film I am producing. The film is titled "The Memory" and the specific scene I will shoot will be outdoors based in a nature area in Vancouver Wa.

The actress will be the main character's girlfriend, and will be about a memory he has. The goal of the scene is to look very organic and natural, there will be few lines and will be flirty and fun.

The actress I had lined up had to cancel last minute and I am trying to take advantage of the remaining weeks of sunshine to shoot. I plan on shooting on Sat 10/6 or Sun 10/7.

This is a great project to build on your acting portfolio and will be submitted to film festivals next year. There is no money compensation, all roles will receive credits.

For more information contact me here or through Model Mayhem. It would be great to meet in person before the shoot, but if there isn't enough time a phone call and email exchange should do.
