INCLUDE: Headshot, Resume, Regular photo okay
NOTES: Please send digital auditions (Youtube videos, etc.) to me, as it is easier than meeting up for a phystical audition.
I’m a high school junior, and this is my first film. If all goes well I’ll be using it as my visual sample when I apply to USC and NYU next year. Because of the amateur nature of this project, I would really like to stress that I only want to work with actors that live close by. Otherwise, I’d feel like I might be wasting your time. (Not that this movie will be terrible, but it will be my first attempt at making one.) I can’t pay any actors, but I will provide snacks, you will get a copy of the final product, and you will, of course, get credit for your work.
