Can't believe we've already put out the call for actors for our little feature film. I've already received 80 CVs and headshots, and it's only been 24 hours. Some are seriously random, but most look really amazing. I guess that's what happens in an open casting call right?
And now we have our first scheduling conflict - I've announced the audition dates on a tonne of sites, and now...I might have to schedule them for one week later. But I'll sleep on it and see if somehow by the time I wake up, it will have sorted itself. C'mon universe - make it easy will ya?
We also have actor-friends in LA, Austin and London, England who want to audition virtually, which I really want to figure out how to do. Surely, others have held Skype auditions in the past?
Here's the casting call:
