Casting Actresses (PDX)

We are casting for a no/low budget feature drama.

Auditions will be from 12 to 5 on both the 17th and 18th of January. Please let us know if you cannot make these dates, and we will to do our best
to accommodate you.

The website is:

There you can find many things, such as the treatment/outline and other aspects of the process we are going through.

We are filming in Late-February through April on a 12-Day Shoot. Please send in your Resume, Headshot
and/or Reel. Please request a character or two for which you'd like to read for. In return we will send you a
side of the film for each character, and the address of our auditions.

Malorie - She is an early-thirties and level-headed, but gullible actress being given her first real shot on a
truly popular film. An actress with many awards and projects already under her belt, she has convinced
herself that though the film itself is perhaps 'sell-out' it does indeed hold a chagrin of a brighter and
richer future. A newcomer to the set and an instant friend to all, Malorie's elegant demeanor
commands attention. Richard has become a person she has let herself confide her true emotions to, or
rather, she has let him in. Grahme and Steve are two people that she knows enough to speak casually
with. While gullible, she does have street smarts, just not those that she always listens to. She is in
danger of the same fate as Cynthia, an actress that Malorie herself admires.

Katie - She is a young and emotional make-up artist on the film set. She is a person looking to get ahead
in life no matter the cost. Only in spite of Grahme, Richard fires her to keep him in line. Meanwhile,
Katie has been in the beginning process of selling photos of Grahme to the press to bring her money.
She does not know that Grahme is a good person, only that when he doesn't show up to set, she cannot
afford to pay her rent.

Grace - She is a friend of Katie's and has a very calm, but present demeanor. She is a fan of Grahme's, but is
forced into snapping photos of him by Katie. Her scene comes early in the film, and helps build on the weight
of this celebrity presence wrought in the film.

Compensation: Stipend at the End

Extras needed for a scene in a short film slated to be shot on February 5th, 2013 from 5pm-10pm.

The scene will involve a group of young women and men waiting outside of a venue to get an autograph from a female pop singer. They will attempt to crowd around her and be held back by her body guards as she gets into her limo.

The scene will be shot outside of The Montage under the Morrison bridge.

I am looking to cast men and women between the ages of 18 and 35 for these roles.

I am also looking to cast an actor to play one of her Body Guards. For this part I am looking for someone between the ages of 25 and 50 and I am open to casting a woman for this role

Here is some information about the film.

SYNOPSIS: The Second Coming is a dark love story about an escort who is trying to get out of the business who falls in love with a schizophrenic who thinks he is the Second Coming of Christ. It is a modern day version of the Jesus and Mary Magdelene story meets the film True Romance, which follows the heroes journey but takes the viewer into the twisted minds of the characters through surreal imagery and dreamscapes.

Please email me a little about yourself, a photo, and any acting experience you may have.

This is a no budget production with only minimal funds to pay for food, rentals, props, and permits.
Nobody is getting paid and everyone involved is doing this because they, like myself are artists and want more experience and footage for their reel.

What I can offer is that you are well fed, respected, credited, have a beautiful piece for your reel, multiple invitations to screenings, and some great experience for your future career as an actor.

Please feel free to view a trailer of my last film to see if this the kinda production you would like to participate in.

Actor needed for male lead in short film

Hi there. I'm an aspiring filmmaker and am casting for my first major project (possibly feature length). It is a critical drama that's pretty dialogue heavy, so I'm in need of actors with some solid experience. I don't need to see a lengthy filmography, but a some past film work would be nice. This is pretty low-budget, all out of pocket, so while I can't guarantee that this will be a paid gig, if I have the funds, I'll definitely pay. I actually have two big roles to fill, one more supportive than the other but still with a lot of screen time (both young adults18-25ish). If you are interested then email me a head shot and I will send you an excerpt of the short story version. I live in Newberg but have no problem traveling to Portland to meet up with you if you'd like to do a reading.

Actresses Wanted for short drama film (Portland)

I am currently a film student, doing independent film work in addition to school work as well, and am preparing to shoot a short film tentatively titled "Intersection", which follows a collection of female characters at different stages in their lives all approaching the same street intersection and whom are possibly on the verge of having a multi-car accident there. Each character has a legitimate reason for being distracted, which might make her responsible for an accident, and furthermore these characters are interconnected with one another. I am looking for actresses to fill in the roles of these various characters for which I have listed below. Each character has their own parts in the film, each of which will be approximately five minute segments.

ERIKA (20-30 years old) - a young woman working as a pizza delivery person who is caught up in the sluggishness of her life, which goes in conflict with her job which requires her to rush all around town making timely deliveries. As she reflects on her life, while in a rush, she is quite distracted.

NADINE (30-35 years old) - something of a "soccer mom" type character, who is very caught up in her busy life, which primarily focuses on her multiple children. Her greatest distraction is repeatedly having to check her cell phone, distracting her repeatedly.

GEENA (30-35 years old) - woman in a very unhappy and lifeless marriage of which she feels no happiness or spark from. Due to this she has to find her own ways to seek release in life. As she is out on a drive alone on a straightaway she tries to find some pleasure in speeding, which puts her in a dangerous place as she approaches the intersection.

ABBY & TORRY (both about 25 years old) - a young lesbian couple who have found themselves becoming listless together and are about to go out of town to try and spice up their rather young relationship. As they try and have a serious talk and connection they become distracted approaching the intersection.

CHELSEY (character is 16-17 years old, played by someone around 18-20 years of age) - a young driver on her way to a friends house after having a fight with her parents over the way she's been leading her young life. Distracted by inexperience and her exaggerated frustration at her parents.

LYNDSEY (20 years old) - An inexperienced driver without a license who borrows a friends car after another friend calls her with an emergency in which her help is needed. The simple fact that she is a poor driver, caught up in her friends recent emergency, makes her a liability out on the road.

LYDIA (20-25 years old) - has been in an abusive relationship for the past couple years and she has chosen this day to try and flee at all cost. She doesn't know until she's out on the road that her possessive boyfriend is aware of her efforts to try and get away.

Call for Directors

 Portland Actors Ensemble
2013 Shakespeare-in-the-Parks

Portland Actors Ensemble seeks directors for its summer 2013 Shakespeare-in-the-Parks season featuring "problem plays" The Merchant of Venice and Cymbeline. Directors are invited to submit proposals for one or both shows. The Merchant of Venice, our twilight show, is scheduled to begin rehearsals in early May, open mid-June, and run through late July. The touring production of Cymbeline is scheduled to begin rehearsals in late May or early June, open in late July and run through Labor Day.

PAE has been bringing free Shakespeare to Portland area audiences for over forty years. PAE is committed to providing financially-accessible classical theatre in a variety of locations. Our tradition is to embrace the natural beauty of the area, rather than to attempt to recreate an indoor production outside. Some performances will be ASL-interpreted and audio-described. Last season's Hamlet and Twelfth Night were among our most successful shows ever.

We are considering primary performance locations for Merchant, and potential directors are invited to propose an outdoor (or non-traditional theatre space) location in the Portland area. Previous Twilight Tragedy performances have occurred at Lovejoy Fountain, Cathedral Park, Lone Fir Cemetery, and at the top of Mount Tabor. The touring production of Cymbeline will visit a variety of parks and universities around the Portland area and Maryhill Museum in the gorge.

Directors will be paid $1,000. If you have not worked with, or seen a production by PAE before, please feel free to visit our website at or reach us at for more information about our company, mission, and tradition.

Below are some areas to cover in your proposal. Feel free to explore and expand, however be sure to cover at least these topics:
What will the rehearsal process be like? How long?
What are the dominant themes you are emphasizing? How will the controversial themes (if any) be addressed?
What is your approach to the text itself? What's staying, what's being moved or compressed and what's going away? Is there extra material you're bringing in? We don't need line-by-line, but more on a scenic level.
What's your casting approach (gender, age, etc)? Cast size? Doubling? Consolidating characters?
What sort of design elements (Costume/Set/Movement, et al.) do you imagine?
What's your preferred allocation of budget (this can be done in terms of % if you prefer)?
In what time period do you plan to place your play? Do you plan to do a "concept" show? If so, what is it?

Merchant-specific topics:
How would you deal with anti-Semitic themes?
Cymbeline-specific topics:
Twins? Complexity of story?

Please include a resume with your proposal.
Proposals should be submitted to, or by postal mail to Portland Actors Ensemble, PO BOX 8671, Portland, OR 97207. Email submission is preferred.

The deadlines for proposals:
Cymbeline: January 20, 2013

Good Will for all,
Michael Godsey
Artistic Director
Portland Actors Ensemble
