Rough Outline of Time Commitment (Rehearsal Schedule, Shooting
Schedule, Etc.):We will be doing rehearsals and shooting in the day
time on weekends. See additional notes for more details.

Additional Notes:
We are shooting our next movie soon and are making a casting call.
This is a feature (70 mins. or more in) length comedy. We will be
shooting on weekends only, so if you are interested you will need
most weekends free from our start date through this summer. There
are 7 main characters who will need to be absolutely available and
5 sub characters that will be needed more than one time. And about
35 extras who we can finish up with in 1 to 2 days. There are parts
for children this time so if you have any children that might be
interested take this into advisement. We make these movies just for
fun, not for profit and everyone has a great time. (except for the
times I am pulling out my hair).

No... there is no pay, but just as in my last feature, I usually
pick up the lunch tab. We also need folks to help out in the
production i.e. Camera operators, lighting, props and sound
personnel. Don't worry if you don't know how to do any of this I
have a cookie cutter method and can get you up to speed in minutes.
We will enter this in The Sundance festival as well as other
festivals. Once the movie is done we will have a one time showing
party and you can get a copy of the movie( you need to supply DVD
disk. Note: we can make real DVD's on the full 9gig commercial disks
as well as the 4.5's )

If you are interested .or know someone who is..Please take a card
and call either me or Emily after 5 pm. and before 9 pm. weekdays
Noon to 9pm. Weekends ,then we can fill you in on more details.
