Casting Day

Casting Day at Watkins College of Art

Watkins College will hold a general casting call for Fall 2018 student film projects on Saturday, September 15, at the Watkins campus in Metro Center. Directors of productions from the BFA film programs at Watkins will be looking for actors of all ages. Student films can be 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 head shots for each audition (or a photo can be taken at the audition). 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 three-day/Friday–Sunday period) for individual productions will be posted by September 7.

NOTE:  No overall make-up audition session will be offered. However, after production breakdowns are posted, actors who cannot attend the September 15 casting day may contact specific directors concerning particular roles. If headshots and résumés are submitted, please include name in file title. 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 Quicktime file (without music) to cut into a reel.

If you have questions, email auditions@watkins.edu.
