Production: “The Cordial Dead”
Producer: Rosie Zwaduk, Cozy Seal Productions
Director: Jonathan Ziegler
Writer: Natalia Lopez
DOP: Ray Thomas
Audition Date: Saturday, Feb. 6, 2010 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm
Shoot Date: Saturday, Feb. 20th from 4:00pm to 11:30pm
Female Lead: Early to late 20’s, average-to-athletic build. Non-speaking role, however we need someone with great facial expressions (especially “frightened”) and a great scream.
Zombies: Male/Female, 18 years old or older, any race, build, etc. 15-20 needed.
Preference given to those with “zombie experience” (ie; the Tucson Zombie Walk), but it’s open to anyone who would like to have fun on camera playing a zombie! Zombies will need to show up to the shoot in your zombie outfit and make-up. (Though we will be providing/fine-tuning makeup, you will need to come in your own clothing.) Non-speaking parts, however we’ll need great moans and shuffles. (Old-type zombie-shuffles; Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, etc.) The best outfits/make-up have the best chances of being featured on film.
Female Lead: Audition will consist of direction, reaction and your own personal interpretation; there will be no cold-reading and no need for a pre-practiced monologue. If you are interested and available for the shoot date, please send headshot and resume to Rosie Z. at firstname.lastname@example.org
Zombies: We will not be holding auditions for Zombies, however you must contact us prior to Jan. 17th to be considered (first come, first serve). If you have a Headshot and/or picture of you already zombied up, that would be great! Location information will be forwarded to you upon acceptance. Contact Rosie Z. at email@example.com
Compensation: This production is a low-budget, independently produced short. Though it won’t be much, there will be a small stipend paid to most actors/crew. Points will also be awarded in the event the project makes enough back to re-coup production costs. Actors will receive credit. There will be snacks and a meal provided by El Jibaro Catering Co.
Make-Up: Do you have skills in (or a high desire to learn) special effects make-up? We will need a few additional make-up artists to work under our Make-up Manager for this production.
Production will be shot on HD Video with professional equipment.
