Feature Film Casting in Chicago (auditions Thursday)
|Posting Date:||Sept. 11, 2013|
Accepting union and non-union submissions for lead role JONATHAN and supporting role PAT. Please email materials to firstname.lastname@example.org and please...
- Only submit if you are available for the shoot dates noted below!
- Note whether you are available to audition on Thursday September 12th (yes that's tomorrow) between 4-6 pm in Chicago (North Side/Lincoln Square). There might be other auditions (we might also accept taped auditions) but the director is hoping to cast these roles as soon as possible.
- If your headshot was taken more than a year ago, please ALSO include a recent snapshot of any kind (iPhone photo fine)
Notes from the director and casting director: Jonathan (40s-50s, Caucasian) is the main character. It is a role that an actor can sink his teeth into. Jonathan¹s morals come into conflict with the external world and this throws him into a crisis that he must reconcile. He discovers that the world is not what it seemed and that he has the potential to do more than what he thought capable.
Pat¹s (50s-60s, Caucasian) role although short is crucial to the film. He is the catalyst that propels Jonathan into a crisis and the antagonist that Jonathan must confront in order to be able to move forward as a more complete and rounded person. Pat can be both helpful or vicious if you cross hm.
We plan to shoot over 6 weekends (Friday thru Sunday) beginning September 20th through October 27.
Because Jonathan is in 99% of the scenes the actor would be needed to be there all of those weekends.
The scenes for Pat¹s role are scheduled for October 12, 1/2 day and October 27th, 1/2 day. One scene (29) is yet to be scheduled and this would be a full day.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you
