Inspired By Real Events

'ROCK FIGHT'
Guinea Pig Pictures is casting Rock Fight, a DV feature film about an action-exploitation movie star, Nikki Stanton, who goes to Mexico to work undercover for the U.S. military (The US military simply loves working with movie stars. They're so tough, reliable and level-headed.) to help apprehend the famous lesbian terrorist, Lulu, who ruined Nikki’s career (Ruining action/exploitation film stars careers - that's how evil she is!). Toby XXXXX, dir.-prod. Shooting begins in late spring in Real de Catorce, Mexico. Seeking—Rosa: 20, very pretty, a young, wild hippie chick, partial nudity and lesbian sexual scenes required; Howard: 40s, U.S. military special forces; Females: 21+, to play Lulu’s lesbian militia (Is there a reverse 'Don't Ask-Don't Tell' policy in lesbian militias?). Auditions will be held by appt. only Dec. 16 at Center Stage NY in Chelsea, NYC. Send pix & résumés to Guinea Pig Pictures, XXXXX St., 5th fl., Brooklyn, NY 11211; or email to XXXXX.com. No drop-offs or phone calls. For more info, visit www.gpigp.com. Stipend, plus videocopy, credit, meals, transportation, and housing provided.

Just FYI - I'd be leery of any production company called 'Guinea Pig' Productions. That doesn't exactly inspire confidence in a performer.

It's awesome that they are paying - especially for the women who appear comfortably topless in a non-sexual way. I applaud them. But you may not want to go publicizing to everyone else what their cast-mates will be earning... It can make for a sticky wicket, if you know what I'm saying.

Five women will be chosen to join an intensive paid training course of up to five weeks.

Zzzzzzz... I understand you have to pay for space and that you may not want to look like one of those psychos who waxes poetic on the subtle nuances and psychological ironies of a campfire sleepover massacre plot... but SOME info is helpful. I mean, what is this about? Who are these people? And the call for a camera person with a "quality cam" frightens me a little.

It's Like A Young, Hot, Naked UN Session

‘THE FALL OF SUMMER’
Magic Flute Inc. is casting The Fall of Summer, an HDDV film about two young cousins who decide to make an opera about the apocalypse in Williamsburg. (There was an apocalypse in Williamsburg??? Or do they mean 'In Williamsburg, two young cousins make a movie about the apocalypse'?) The film references Science of Sleep, 2046, and The Dreamers. Renzo Zanelli, dir.; Jacquelyn XXXXX, screenwriter. Shooting in November in NYC and Williamsburg, Magic Flute Inc., 101 E. 15th St., 2nd fl., NYC.S eeking—Mandy: 18, blonde, mormon, girly and tomboy, can only let go when she drinks, wild, aggressive, sarcastic, but sweet inside; Silvia: 20, Taiwanese, thick accent, motorcycle-riding, community college for business (role involves nudity and simulated sex); Elizabeth: 20, redhead, Danish, independent, cold, creative, dancer (role involves nudity and simulated sex); Bonnie: 20, Taiwanese, still childish; Cecilia: 20, French, dancer, melancholy, smart (role involves nudity and simulated sex); Mercedes: 27, Asian-Indian-white mix, wealthy bohemian; Natash: 23, Russian, Spanish speaker, businesswoman; Ina: 20, Russian opera singer, quirky; Extras; Other Roles.Email pix & résumés to XXXXX.com. For more info, visit www.magicflutefilms.com. Some pay, plus videocopy, credit, meals, and transportation provided.

I think they left out that the simulated sex is lesbian sex. Because I see three women listed as having simulated sex scenes, but no dudes. That seems like it'd be an important thing to mention. Or maybe I'm wrong and the dudes have already been cast? Saaayyyy... maybe it's the guys who wrote the movie? Could it be??? How many of you guys are slapping your knees right now saying "Why didn't I think of that?!"

No Pay Exposure

this could be your chance (FOR...?!?!?!)

"You Know, I Kind Of Didn't Want To Come To This Country, So Now I must Take My Revenge - Nonverbally, Of Course"

Shelter Media is casting a short (15-17 min.) metaphysical mystery entitled The Encounter, a metaphysical mystery. Paul XXXXX, dir. Shooting over a long weekend in January or February (Fri.-Mon., exact dates TBA) in northeastern PA.Seeking Hania: ex-best friend of the lead female character, Ula, has been brought to America from Poland somewhat against her will, though she senses a chance to take revenge on Ula, must have fluency in an Eastern European language, does not have to be Polish, but something that will enable you to learn some Polish for the role, supporting role. Note: Good verbal and nonverbal skills required. Email pix & resumes to XXXXX.com. Possible pay, plus videocopy, credit, meals, transportation, and housing provided.

"Dear Paul,

I am writing in response to your ad for The Encounter, A Metaphysical Mystery. I would like to audition for the role of Hania. I am not fluent in Polish but I learn languages very quickly. Also, I am an excellent nonverbal communicator: I know the American Sign Language alphabet and I am good at charades. I can also write things on paper.

I also noticed that you or whoever posted this article doesn't like periods or other punctuation, only commas, which can sometimes be confusing, so I think your non-verbal communication skills are somewhat lacking, as well, I would still, like to audition for you, anyway, and I also like metaphysics, by the way.

Sincerely,
Your Future Hania

PS - Please explain 'Somewhat against her will'. ?"

High Art Jersey Style

‘BAZOOKAS: THE MOVIE’
Truancy Films LLC is casting Bazookas: The Movie, a comedy in the tradition of Porky’s and Old School. Michael XXXXX, dir. Shooting Oct. 13-26 (mostly at night, some extend into the early hours) in Medford, NJ (Cherry Hill area). Awesome. NJ in the wee hours of the morning shooting a sophomoric college parody... I have goosebumps already. Seeking--Background Actors in South Jersey: male and female, 18+, all types, including two scenes requiring actors and actresses, 55+. Note: Also casting several small speaking roles and featured extra roles. Movie takes place in a gym, so wardrobe will be simple. I bet! Email pix and contact info ASAP to XXXXX.com. No pay, but credit provided.

I know I scoff at projects like this that do not pay, but I honestly don't know if you could pay me enough to do a graveyard shift film shoot a la Porky's in a gym somewhere in south Jersey with a few dozen other non-union (translated: "mostly crazy") actors. Is that mean? Ok, ok... maybe I could. I bet those movies are fun to make... But still... something about this makes me exhausted just reading it. Maybe it's the title. You have to give them credit though - "Bazookas: The Movie" does sound way better than "Boobies: Yay For Boobies".

Classic Nudity Required, No Pay.

A Movie Within A Movie... Within A Movie???

SEEKING WHITE FEMALE ACTRESS for straight-to- DVD movie (guaranteed distribution through MVD). Pay = $300 for 3-5 hours of work. The movie is a comedy about the making of an ultra indie horror movie (like the kind you would find at a horror convention booth). The role available is "Melissa" who is a scream queen. She takes pity on the amateur director and decides to do him a favor by appearing in a scene at a greatly reduced fee (Like, say, $300 for 3-5 hours of work?). There are three scenes that the Melissa character is in. In her first appearance she bumps into the director at a park and thanks him for giving her boyfriend's band a positive review in a magazine (the director is a mag writer as his day job). In that conversation she reveals that she is a scream queen and defines that term for him (he doesn't know what a scream queen is). In her second appearance, later in the movie, she bumps into the director again and (she sounds clumsy), after hearing about his troubles (his movie is a disaster - girls are quitting, his crew is a bunch of morons, etc) she decides to appear in his movie. (Yes, I know I always run right out and sign up for something as soon as I know it's a disaster. That's always when it's the most fun and rewarding.) The third appearance is on location - the shooting of a movie within the movie. The Melissa character is clothed for all scenes except that one (topless and in a thong/garter belt/thigh-high stockings). Please note that the nudity is less than 30 seconds on-screen. As soon as she delivers her lines in the movie-within-a- movie she walks off to change into normal clothes and finishes her scene completely clothed. This movie stars Gina Lynn. Guest appearance by Miramax director J.T. Petty (he directed Mimic 3 and Soft For Digging - remember those?), and a cameo by George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher (What a silly nickname - he sounds like fun! Scary, deadly fun!!!). DVD will be released in October. (I'll put it on my Netflix queue now...)
Please send pics/resume to JT now

Da, Is Good Film.

LIFT

Brett XXXXX (talent coord.) is casting Lift, a financed indie feature film. Shooting in early September in NYC. Seeking Irina: 30s, female, Russian, former acrobat turned lawyer (Those are some flexible briefs!); Nina: 30s, female, Russian beauty, "flaky-Ophelia-on-acid" type (Whoa! That's a 'type'?); Valentina: 30s, female, Russian, tall, blonde, voluptuous rustic type (The only things curvier than her silhouette are the rural hills she hails from! Zing!); Claude: 40-50s, male, strong-quiet-Frenchman (Jean Reno) type; Father Victor: 40-50s, male, gregarious, no physical preference; Rabbi Menashe: 30-40s, male, gaunt, morose, flexible physical attributes (Flexible? Perhaps he, too, is a former acrobat?); Fima: 40s, male, Russian, lovable loser type, no physical preference; Berman: 40s, male, Russian, successful doctor, no physical preference, slightly pompous; Gioia: 20-30s, female, Italian hottie, no physical preference; Lyudmila: 40-50s, female, Russian-Jewish-mother type; Boris: teens-early 20s, male, Russian; Gallery Owner: 30-50s, male, no physical preference, slightly sleazy; Bill the Boss: 40s, male, corporate lawyer type; Howard Harris: 40-50s, male, tall, slender, blond-gray, elegant, stuffy Brit; Landlord: 50s, male, aggressive, no physical type. Note: Actors with Russian fluency a plus for Russian roles.Send pix & resumes to Russian Film LLC, XXXXX. Box XXXXX, NYC 10012. No phone calls or walk-ins. Compensation according to role. Producer plans to apply for a SAG Low Budget Film Agreement. (First posted 7/27/06, revised 7/28/06)

I like how the last one finally has "no physical type" - like they've given up and thrown their Movie Cliche Thesaurus out the window.

Further down in the ad breakdown it read: "Nudity: Yes", which I sort of assumed. You can't have a movie that includes a former acrobat and men-of-the-cloth, without showing a little boobage, am I right? I so wish I could figure out what the plot will be. It sounds like the beginning of a joke, does it not?: "So a Priest, a Rabbi and a former acrobat-turned-lawyer walk into an art gallery..."

Make Your Mother Proud: Get Naked With Tisch Students (They're Super-Talented, You Know)

HOUSE OF SAND

No Outlet Group, LLC is casting House of Sand, a low-budget mini35 DV teen horror feature about four high school seniors whose summer vacation at the beach turns into a nightmare when they run into two drifters interested in more than having a good time. Paul and Daniel XXXXX, co-dirs. Weekly rehearsals ongoing through September in Brooklyn and NYC; shooting Sept. 17-Oct. 2 at a beach house on the bay. Seeking -Jenna: featured role, 18, tall, blonde or light-haired, very attractive, sassy, sarcastic, flirtatious, partial nudity required for group skinny-dipping scene. Note: Tisch talent attached for other roles. Send pix & resumes to Paul XXXXX, 132 XXXXX, Brooklyn, NY 11231; or email XXXXX.com. No pay, but videocopy, credit, meals, transportation, and lodging (all cast and crew will be housed at the beach house for the duration of the shoot) provided.

Over the years people have marveled at the difference between "low-budget", "super-low budget", "zero-budget", etc. And since this notice isn't particularly funny or noteworthy - except for the classic 'nudity required/no pay' stipulations - I will venture my guesses regarding these budget types here:

Low-Budget: "I've held down two terrible part time jobs for the past year and a half to earn enough cash to pay for a camera, gas, some props and a pizza for every day we shoot. I would kick a few bucks your way if I could - but on the last day of the shoot if there's anything left, I'll probably spend that on a case of beer."

Super/Ultra-Low-Budget: "I pocketed the money my dad gave me last week to get the car washed and I'm gonna use it to make my opus. I'm borrowing my friend Hank's handi-cam on the condition that I let him help me 'audition' the girls who will play the Vampire Maidens from Uranus. I can't afford props or costumes so it's gonna have to all be improv'ed and everyone will have to be naked except the homeless man from in front of the 7-11 who I bribed to be in the shoot with a can of Pepsi."

No-Budget: "I'm not sure what I'm doing."

Zero-Budget: "Can I borrow a couple bucks? I'll let you be in my movie."

But Seriously, For A Moment...

Six-Time Felon Arrested in Actor's Murder
by Lauren Horwitch

July 14, 2006

CourtTV.com reports six-time convicted felon Victor Paleologus has been charged with the murder of actor Kristine Johnson whose body was found Mar. 3, 2003 in a ravine in the Hollywood Hills. She had been last seen going to an audition... As previously reported, 21-year-old Johnson vanished Feb. 15, 2003 after telling a roommate a photographer had approached her at the Century City Mall and asked to take pictures of her for a movie production. A police sketch was created with the help of a woman who told police she was similarly approached at the same mall and had met the man in West Hollywood. Her boyfriend, a former law enforcement officer, had chased the man away when he became aggressive. Investigators began focusing on Paleologus due to the sketch...

I just saw that article online. Pretty scary stuff. A bit of advice for any actor who is approached by someone offering them a contract/work/audition/meeting/etc.: Do your research first. Find out if this person is legit. Ask for a reference. If your still uncertain - bring a friend with you to the meeting/audition. Tell someone where you are going and when, and that you will check in with them when you're done. If anything feels weird - listen to your gut! If you're worried about burning bridges - you can be firm yet polite. Explain that you're willing to continue the dialog so long as you feel comfortable (by meeting in a public place, bringing a friend to the meeting or asking for a reference).

Anyone that is legitimate and interested in working with you will have no problems with your requests. In fact, they'll probably admire your intelligence and professionalism.

Just When You Thought Your 'Guy's Weekend' Hiking Adventure Couldn't Get Any Better...

UNTITLED EROTIC THRILLER

Deja Vu

Seriously? This exact same ad ran in Back Stage last June. It's on this site under the heading "Boobs Make Everything Scarier". How many movies can one company make in a year featuring nurses, gypsies, maids and vampresses??? I'm beginning to think the "twist ending" is that you think you're coming in for an audition for an actual movie, but turns out you're really just coming in to make some creepy guy's day.

If you're independently wealthy and can afford to spend three weeks without pay, after buying airfare to Italy (they just said travel to the island was provided, but not from where. I'm assuming just from the main land since, if they had enough dough to buy my international flight, then I feel they could at least give me a per diem), and would rather spend that time "working" as you are "partially nude" with your sister, or someone similar... then I say got for it. Go. For. It.
