Watkins College of Art, Design & Film will hold a general casting call for Spring 2015 student film projects on Saturday, February 7, at the Watkins campus in MetroCenter.
Directors of approximately 20 productions from the BFA film program at Watkins will be looking for actors of all ages. Student films are being made under the SAG/AFTRA student film agreement and therefore all current union members are allowed to participate. Actors are asked to bring résumés and headshots (or a photo can be taken at the reading).
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script (with on-camera readings at the discretion of each director). Casting breakdowns and proposed shoot dates (usually over a 3-day/Friday–Sunday period) for individual productions will be posted to this page as available and distributed on site.
Audition slots will be divided according to gender and age throughout the day (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.); individual appointments are not available.
- 10 to 11 a.m. – Leading men, age range 19-40
- 11 a.m. to noon – Leading and character men, age range 40 and up
- Noon to 1 p.m. – Leading women, age range 19-40
- 1 to 2 p.m. – Leading and character women, age range 40 and up
- 3 to 4 p.m. – Young men and women, age range 8-18

Watkins is located at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in Metro Center (across from the Looby). Free parking is available in the campus lot.
All cast members will be invited to a screening of projects at the end of the semester and will have access to an online copy of the film and a quick-time file (without music) to cut into a reel.
