Actors wanted for a web series movie!
New actors welcome! Age 18 and up.

This is "rehearsed improv" as I call it, creating semi reality style
episodes, which will later be joined together to make a movie for
Amazon Prime. This is a farce! A chance to be funny.

This is volunteer. You get on camera experience, and footage for your
demo reel. If your episode is used in the final movie, you will get an
IMDB credit as well. Episodes will be put on youtube, so you will have
a link to send to agents and casting directors.

You create your own character, or we co-create your character, based
on the ideas and photos below. If you have an attention getting outfit,
and a character already, we can discuss that too!

We will shoot in the spring. We shoot outdoors, which is the safest
place to shoot by far. Hand washing, distancing. "Safer than going to
Safeway". Each episode will take about 2 hours to shoot.

Initially, just think of it as a 2 hour shoot to produce a 7 minute
short. You do not have to commit to more than that.

Why work with me for free? See below.

"Rehearsed improv" is like it sounds. First, you get an idea for a scene... like where it starts, what's in the middle and where it goes. The characters practice it together a few times, before the shoot. Then we shoot it, improving if you forget a line.

You can use any of the scenes from these three scripts.... you can semi memorize them, or just study it and then wing it. Or modify them, or create your own scenes.

Look here.   Here.   And here.

The scenes in the above scripts can be combined, or modified for a male and female. We may shoot some episodes with 3 or 4 characters. All covid safe.

You can check out three of my recent movies on Amazon Prime. (Watch the trailers.)

Look here.     Here.     And here.

If you want to apply, send some pics and a brief bio. A formal resume and head shots are not required.

I hope to get 8 interesting applicants who fit my general concept.

I will call in 4 for an audition, with everyone being here at the same time. Outdoors, covid safe. You will perform a monologue, based on
what you see by studying this page and the linked pages. It will be casual, like being in a small acting class. I will pair you up with someone for some improv. You will all exchange contact information. If you want to pick a scene partner right there, you can, or I will pair you up with someone.

You work with your partner on your own for a few days, and we shoot asap after that. We can do a pre shoot rehearsal if needed. 

I will do another audition with 4 others. After this audition, I will have a good idea on who will make the best pairs. If you are really keen, you can contact all 3 others in your group and brainstorm with them, and work with them on your own. The more ambitious you are, the more you'll get out of this.

Initially, we'll have just two characters in each episode. After that we'll have more people in each episode. (An episode should be about 7 minutes long, and an episode may have more than one scene.)

The first group people will likely be paired with people from the second group later. I will figure that out as we go.

I want the compiled movie to be about 70 to 80 minutes long.

The locations will all be in my Kitsilano neighbourhood. Some scenes will be walking scenes, like you will see in one of the Amazon Prime movies. You will be on Amazon Prime too.

No need to feel overwhelmed. Just think of one episode right now, with one other person. You'll feel more relaxed as we move along. You will get coaching and help. It will be like an easy acting class. If you have questions, just ask. You can do just one episode if you want.

This will be fun, and you will learn a lot. I am friendly and fun and
easy to work with. My email is here. No calls please. I don't text.

If you do well you will be considered for paid gigs in the future, but I can't guarantee that at this time. I am seeking funding, but it is not easy to get. I don't know if this movie will make any money. I will be doing a lot of work just to find out. If it starts making money, it will make it easier to find investors for the future, paid gigs.

When? As soon as I get the first 4 actors, we'll do an outdoor audition/meeting/brainstorming session and take it from there.
Apply by email, here.

Why work with me for free?

You can volunteer on short films. Many of them never get finished.
Most take months to finish in post production. Most get seen by the cast, crew and friends, and that's about it. That is reality.

With me, this project will get finished for sure. It will be edited
within a week, and you can then send the link to agents and casting directors.

Lots more people will see you.

You will get an IMDB credit in a feature film.

Most volunteer short film shoots are very slow. You waste time.

I am an award winning filmmaker, and a good director. I will bring out the best in you. You will learn a lot.

My last short film is 23 minutes long. The trailer is here. It is an inspring story of a young woman who was raped, and how she healed and learned to feel happy again. It has been submitted to 59 (and counting) film festivals so far, with about 10 of them being in the LA area, where the actress will be seen by at least some Hollywood people. She got an IMDB credit, here. She learned my special acting technique.

She has already been seen at a New York film festival. (The rest will be happening over the next 9 months or so.) She has a chance to win A Best Actress Award. (I helped another young actress win a Best Actress Award, here.) It is on tubitv, like Netfix, here.

We shot the movie on October 28, 2020. You can see that in just a few months, it is already "out there", getting seen, and that lots more people will be seeing it soon.

This is why it is worthwhile working with me, for free. Plus I have paid projects planned.

Here are some ideas for your character.

A nerd, geek, sweater girl, muscle guy,
fitness freak, a new Pamela Anderson wannabe, a gothic person, Elvis, a rock star, Marilyn Monroe, Betty Page, pinup queen, mad scientist, crazy professor, a poet, a newbie actor, a songwriter, a young Bob Dylan, a Beatle, a Rolling Stone, Madonna, an ancient astronaut theorist, or Lady Gaga. I may buy costumes, such as a sci fi space girl etc etc. Your ideas wanted too!

Get the idea? You can research all of the above on the net for more ideas.

The key thing to remember is your appearance should be attention getting. And you can do almost
anything you want to do.! We can collaborate and brainstorm! 

The wig above, the fake boobs and the sweaters are available if you want to use them. I hope one person at least will use them.

Remember, this is a farce!

The locations we will use are here.
Social Distancing and all other safety precautions will be used during shoots.

Some lies were told about me on facebook. The truth is here.

I am monitoring the covid situation. If it seems like it is getting too hazardous, we can wait until it is safer. Meanwhile, actors can still apply now. Video auditions are an option.

NOTE: I made this webpage around April 1st. Since then I have gotten some more ideas! This project is evolving! Your ideas welcome too!  "A female lead and her guy friend search for buried gold and a cure for her strange legs." (Special effects will make her legs seem like they are on fire sometimes.)
