Frog Island Films Casting Call for Short Film (Ypsilanti, MI)

Auditions for Actors

Frog Island Films Casting Call

Frog Island Films is seeking actors for a short film that will be filmed in the Ypsilanti area in the October and November time frame. The film will be shot over the course of several days, including a weekend, to be scheduled after casting has been completed.

We are auditioning for the following roles:

  • Dominic/Mob Boss: Qualifying actors will be males in their 30’s and 40’s that are Italian-looking. Dominic is an imposing figure, bigger than life, very cool, very self-confident, and very intimidating. Think Michael Corleone or Tony Soprano or Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci/Goodfellas).
  • Paul/Mobster, Dominic’s right-hand man: Qualifying actors will be males in their 30’s or 40’s that are Italian looking. Actors qualifying for Dominic in nature would also qualify for Paul.
  • Gwen/College Student/Receptionist: Qualifying actors will be females of college age.
  • Morty/Bartender: Qualifying actors will be males of any age. While it is not crucial that Morty look Italian, it will help. This is a small part in the background with only a single line.


We cannot offer compensation for this project except through exposure. The film is being made for a film contest. The film could potentially be viewed by thousands of filmmakers. The winning prize for the contest is a production contract, so there also may be an opportunity to be part of a bigger project should the film win.

How to Apply:

We will be auditioning by appointment in our office in Ypsilanti Depot Town. If you are interested in participating in this project, please send a head shot or photo of yourself along with your resume or a description of your acting experience to:

NOTE: Upon receiving your information, we will contact you to schedule an audition. Most auditions will take place Monday through Friday, between 9:00 and 5:00. When you email us please include any questions you have, your general availability for an audition, your contact information, and the best time for us to reach you.
