I am glad that this blog is a helpful and reliable resource for those in the PDX community, and it is great to know people are booking work from using this blog.

Thanks for visiting and supporting this blog.

Casting Call for Short Film (Portland, OR)
If you are a late 20s, early 30s man who would like to audition to play the role of DAVE, please contact Arthur at Although it's low-budget and no-pay, we hope to create an excellent little movie.

CEDAR RAPIDS CHESS CLUB is a comedy about a trio of middle schoolers and two older guys estranged from their peer group. It's an awkward time for the boys. Elliott's parents are in the midst of a divorce and his dad has left for California. Without a father around, Elliott finds a substitute in Dave, leader of the Cedar Rapids Chess Club. Dave talks about taking control of life but his only lever on fate is a screenplay about NYPD officers who travel back in time to stop 9-11. While struggling to follow his calling, Dave's posturing helps inspire Elliott to start making decisions for himself.

Written by Sarah Mirk and directed by Arthur Smid, CEDAR RAPIDS CHESS CLUB is a 22 minute video released online in six parts. Principal photography takes place in February and the first part launches March 13, 2013. The complete episode will be screened in Portland, Oregon and entered into festivals with the intention of finding a distributor. For more information, please see
