12 westerns? Will you be casting older women in any of them? I am 68 but look much younger. I can ride and handle firearms. I’d be a natural for a tough older woman. Think “Godless”.
Hi Valerie. Yes, we’ve already posted casting announcements for more mature women and there will be more. Please follow the 12 Westerns Facebook page closely!
This is Diana Brest, Phoenix. I would like to be a part of yr film. I also could get you people
I have Makeuo, pA,camera people
I have a friend who would be perfect for this series, she won world championship in cowboy mounted shooting, Miss Louisiana body building, and owns nonprofit horse rescue ranch . Her name is Lisa Massimini
Hey there! Just curious when you will be filming? I have open availability but just wondering it will be this summer. Thanks!
We are aiming for May of next year, 2020.
I am 54, but I do look younger than my years. I have strong acting skills and film experience. I possess many of the extra skills mentioned. I have horse riding experience. Combat training experience, from my time in the Navy. Experience with firearms. I have been singing since I was wee lass; one of the many gifts I was blessed with from my father. No stunt training.
I would be very interested in trying out for this part.
Please try out. It’s always worth a shot!
Okay. Thank you, Travis. 😃
I can do everything except I am not a trained singer. What range are you looking for in singing?
Hey Cheryl. Like it says in the post, those are only a plus, not a must.
I never received notification that you replied. Just wrapped a mini series and go on your page to see what y’all are up too. Well, I guess it was God’s message that I wasn’t the right lady to do this role. Ill keep checking back to see when you put out more castings. I have experience with horses and long rifles so hopefully you will have more roles to fill
Are you accepting crew and/or stunt player applications for any of your projects?
Hey Hank. Go ahead and send me an email with some of your work samples please: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am 19 years but I look much older. I have long Red hair. I was wondering if I am too you g to submit for this film?
I would recommend you submit. Even if you’re not quite right for this one, it’s better for me to see what you can do and to be aware of you, even if it’s for future roles.
Ok great I will do that!
I am submitting my audition today! Is there a time deadline to submit? I will be sending it ASAP I just wanted to make sure. Thank you so much!
