Actors needed for senior film! (NW Portland)
Hello! I'm Richard, a filmmaker attending the Art Institute of Portland, and I'm looking for cast for my senior film, "Bad Habit"!

"What is "Bad Habit?'"

"Bad Habit" is an absurdist comedy in the tradition of Mel Brooks and "Airplane!" era David and Jerry Zucker.

"Who are you looking for?"

There are two characters: Sister Virginia and Abbot Costello

Sister Virginia
Young and new to nunnery, Virginia came to the monastery to escape the dangerous life she had been living. Though the monastery and its residents readily welcomed her, she has come to suspect that it may not be the bastion of virtue she originally thought. Not wanting to cause any unnecessary strife, she approaches the abbot of the monastery in the hope of finding an explanation for the goings on around her.

Desired Actress Traits
-Young looking (mid-twenties or thereabouts)
-Light build (for the costume)
-Comfortable in a slightly revealing outfit (no nudity of course)

Abbot Costello
The abbot of the monestary, Costello is well aware of the less-than-virtuous activities going on and actively embraces them. Everyone is only having fun after all, so what's the harm? Playful by nature, he can't help but to pepper his speech with double entendres suggestive asides. Unfortunately he can get carried away at times, and when Sister Virginia comes to him for advice he accidentally takes the joke a touch too far.

Desired Actor Traits
-Middle-aged (40+)
-Any build
-Can bounce eyebrows

"When are you shooting?"

Shooting is scheduled for Saturday, March 9th. This will be a one day shoot. More specific details will be provided prior to shooting.

"How will I be compensated?"

Actors will be provided $100 for the day, as well as a DVD of the finished product for their reels. As well, if you come to the premiere I will buy you a drink.

"When and where is casting?"

-Where: The Art Institute of Portland, 1122 NW Davis St, Room 310
-When: Saturday, February 2nd, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; each actor will be allotted a fifteen minute block to audition

If you are interested, please let us know no later than 10 p.m. on Thursday, January 31, so that we may provide you with a copy of the script. Please then confirm whether or not you will be attending, and what time frame works best for you, no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, February 1st. We will then let you know what time you are scheduled for no later than 10 p.m. Friday.

The dialogue, though comical and lighthearted, is suggestive, and there is a significant age difference between both characters. This is why we will be providing each actor a copy of the script prior to the casting call, so that they may decide if it is something they are comfortable performing.

Please bring headshots, resumes, and any other materials you would like. We will be providing sides for you to read from, but feel free to deliver an additional monologue if you have one prepared.

Compensation: $100

 Wanted: Portland TOUR GUIDES where you will be performing as your job 

Original Post Date:  2013-01-12

You already love Portland, but do you have strong people skills, a motor mouth and wit to boot? Do people think you've had three cups of coffee already, when you haven't even had your first sip of the day? If so, then this is a dream job for passionate people like you.

Portland Walking Tours is an established and growing company that's been around over a decade and runs daily tours with over 40 events per week (not including dozens of private events) from April through November and 15+ per week the rest of the year. We now have a few rare available positions that are on-call and part-time work. Since we run morning, afternoon, and evening events, you may work irregular hours and will not have a fixed schedule for a while. Most of us consider this as a supplement our income since it's not a full-time gig. Before you read further and apply, learn more about what we do by checking out the Portland Walking Tours website or our sister companies Hometown Advantage and Run Brain Run.

We do all the training and get you up to speed on your missing knowledge of the city. Like all of us, once you're leading tours, you'll seriously be amazed that you're getting paid for doing something so ridiculously fun. So, if you think you have the improv and leadership skills needed, then read on and apply before the audition slots are filled...

POSITION: Resident Expert (aka Tour Guide).

AUDITIONS: February 2, 3, 9 & 10 (which are Saturdays and Sundays).

CALLBACKS: Immediately thereafter.

REHEARSALS: Multiple days on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in February & March.

PAY: Once hired, starts at $10/hour. That may seem ordinary at first, but tips/gratuities will often triple that amount so it's not uncommon that most of us make about $100/day.

To get an audition slot, send a single email with the following info to
1. A cover letter with a paragraph or two of why you would rock this job. Extra points if you include a link showing you on video displaying your very high energy levels.
2. Full and current resume. If you have acting resume, please include that too.
3. Recent headshot photo (does not need to be professionally taken).
4. Two preference for a morning or afternoon audition on February 2nd, 3rd, 9th or 10th.

If you do not supply these four (4) things, you will not be considered. If you are not available for the days of auditions, callbacks, or the weekend rehearsals, please do not apply.

A. If we see a good fit, we promise that we will email you with information for your audition date/time/location, what you will have to do at the audition, and more details on rehearsals & eventual employment.
B. Callbacks/interviews, if appropriate.

Please do not call.

This position requires you to own a mobile phone and have desktop/laptop-based high-speed Internet access in your home and check your email at least once per day. If you do not have a cell phone and daily Internet access at home, please do not apply.

This is a part-time and on-call position and not full-time. This is a W-2 employee position (not a contractor or internship) and you must be at least 18 years old and eligible for employment in U.S. Do not hit reply to this job posting as it goes to the incorrect email address.

Our ideal Resident Expert is:
* Enthusiastic when speaking in front of groups, calm under pressure and always witty.
* Self directed, a quick learner, and has a strong work ethic.
* Highly organized and dependable.
• A team player that knows that over-communicating is always appreciated.
* Experienced in improv, acting or performance.
* Pays attention to detail (like this request that the word "chugger" is in your cover letter somehow).
* Proficient in computers (since your assignments and timesheet are online).
* College Graduate a plus.

Searching for several actors of all ranges for a short Mockumentary written by The Art Institute of Portland's Brian Hanna. His influences are movies like This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting For Guffman, and Bernie. Ability to improv is a must!!! Film crew can come to you since most of the scenes are home interviews.

The film is about a man named Dan Mackenzie, a 32 year-old man from Splendor, Oregon who has been missing since March 17th, 2010. Dan, avid Leprechaun enthusiast, and his best friend Josh have been trying to find evidence that Leprechauns exist (Dan saw one on a Boy Scout camping trip when he was younger). Dan was last seen leaving for Glenn Pointe to record himself searching for evidence of leprechauns. His parents, friends, and fellow townsfolk are interviewed and asked about what they think happen to Dan.

The film will be shooting beginning in February and will wrap on March 10th. Please send a short bio and a head shot (or any picture) if you match the description of one of the following characters:

BILL MACKENZIE: 50's-60's, any size/build, mustache (or ability to grow one). Think someone like Ron Swanson.

Actors/Actresses auditions

I'm looking at doing a reading over two shows of Part Time Playhouse the first Sundays of May and June.

This is a NON-paying reading for community TV at

MetroEast Community Media
829 N.E. 8th Street
Gresham, OR 97030

The show airs live the first Sunday of the month at 7:00 pm. Cast members need to be on set no later than 4:30 pm for a rehearsal.
Some cast members will need to commit to both Sundays, some to only one.

The benefit to you is you will receive a CD of the show you can use for your resume and gain experience with a television studio.

The name of the play is "Child." It is a psuedo horror story about two Oughtnoppers, a boy and his mother, caught between immortality and death.


Child: a young boy of undisclosed age, (8 to 14)
Mother: 50 plus
Social Worker: any age
David: 20s
Grace: 20s
Reba and Laura: 20s
Mark Anthony:
Radio Announcer:
Dr. George and his multiple personalities: 50s,

There will be role doubling, so need no more than 8 cast members.
As this is a not for pay reading, we will keep your time commitment to a minimum. I would like to find a cast now, hand out scripts, have one rehearsal a bout a week before the first show in SW Portland, the second rehearsal at the station in Gresham.

Email to arrange an audition time. Head shots and resumes are always welcomed, but not required.

Auditions will be in SW Portland between Raleigh Hills and Sylvan. It is NOT bus friendly, do NOT think you can walk there. If you use public transportation please be sure to say so and we will make arrangements to accommodate you needs.

Please when emailing, state where you saw this post.

Thank you

A little bit about us: We are a small company started within the last year by members of an already established dance community here in SE Portland. As artists, we wanted to start exploring our own choreography and spend more of our time doing what we love. Our members are passionate, kind, hilarious, and above all friends. We enjoy each others' company and would love to open our arms to new members to grow with/ be friends with. Our style tethers between hip hip, lyrical, and contemporary. Musicality is a must. Attendance to our local dance studio is encouraged but not required (because they've been so good to us, we like to support!)

We generally have 1-2 performances a month at various clubs, events, and fundraisers. Rehearsals are Saturday from 3-6. No dues required. Just badassery. <--- that's a word now.

I am currently looking for 2-3 Production assistants for a film I am beginning production for on February 5th through mid March 2013 and will need folks to be available 3-6 shoot days during this time period . I don't necessarily need someone with a lot of experience but a few hard working people who are passionate about film and wish to gain experience for their future careers in this field.

I am not asking you to drive around or make coffee. Depending on what we will need on a given day you could be:

Script supervisor

Assisting our gaffer with lights

writing down scene files

Set dresser

Making sure we don't have non actors walking onto set, etc.

Here is some information about the film.

SYNOPSIS: The Second Coming is a dark love story about a 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 and any prior 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, a copy of the film, multiple invitations to screenings, connections with those working in the industry and some great experience.

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


Compensation: no pay
