“One Nation Under God” is a Christian movie that will be shot in Howell, Michigan. We are seeking talented cast and crew in the Livingston county area. Typecasting is inevitable in certain roles. All participants will be expected to be committed to the production. Cast will rehearse approximately three times a week until we can speak our lines in a natural fashion as if second nature. Payment will be done on a deferred basis, which means when the production renders a net profit at or above a certain level, payment will then be rendered.
