The film program at Watkins will hold a general casting call for Spring 2018 student film projects on Saturday, February 10 on campus. Directors of productions from the BFA and MFA 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 headshots 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 3- day/Friday–Sunday period) for individual productions will be posted by February 2. Audition slots will be divided according to gender and age.
Please note that no overall make-up audition sessions will be offered. However, after production breakdowns are posted, actors who cannot attend the February 10 Casting Day may contact specific directors concerning particular roles. If headshots and résumés are submitted electronically, please include a name in the 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 digital file (without music) to cut into a reel.
If you have questions, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Free parking is available in the campus lot.
