New Mexico Casting Call: Sides for Actors
As we posted on the Facebook Event Page, we will have an open casting call on January 20th at Far Horizon Studio in Albuquerque from 10am to 3pm for the 12 Westerns in 12 Months Project. There are no appointments/reservations for this casting call; it is first come, first served and we will see as many actors as we can. This information does not apply to actors already scheduled to audition on January 19th.
Here are some reminders about our 12 Westerns:
- They won’t be made until 2020. This is an initial casting call to develop a base of talent we will cast from.
- The films will be low-budget (under 100k each). That means some principal/supporting roles will be paid but not all cast will be.
- They will most likely be non-union/guild projects.
Below you will find brief character descriptions with a link to download a PDF of the sides. We have tried to provide material for a variety of ages and types. Please contact director Travis Mills at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
