Auditions for Actors
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.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
