    As long as you meet the criteria the casting call is looking for, anyone can apply for our movie casting opportunities. Some casting calls do require you to be a US or Michigan resident in order to apply.

    It really is a fun way to teach your kids how to follow directions. I couldn’t believe how involved it was considering it was just a stickman! Glad you enjoyed it, Tony! Thanks for leaving your comment.
