Grand Rapids Student Film Open Casting Call

Student Film Open Casting

Amelia Crist is looking  to cast three (3) men, two (2) women, and one (1) child for an upcoming student film in Grand Rapids, MI.

Film Synopsis:

When a winged creature falls into the hands of a startled rural family, his presence begs the question can we find beauty in the unknown and grace in the unexpected? An adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s short story “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings,” the period is nonspecific while the location will more closely resemble an isolated area of the American East Coast, rather than a South America fishing village.

Filming Dates:

Filming will be based on actor availability between July 19th and August 2nd. Please note that this will be a four-six day shoot with most characters will only be required on set for two days at most.

Audition Dates:

Thursday, July 1st 5-7PM
Thursday, July 8th 5-7PM.

Audition Location:

Auditions will be held at the Aquinas College Library (off of Woodward Avenue, Grand Rapids MI) in the board room to the left of the entrance lobby. Please prepare a dramatic monologue and come with your resume; head shots preferred but not required.
