I'll Have What She's Having - But Since It's Happy Hour, Make Mine A Double!

Erotica in 12 Shots (Ha - "shots". It's like a double entendre... read on...)
Student Film, Non-Union

Union Status: Non-Union
Run(Usage): School project with possibilty of entering in festivals if all goes well. Will be part of a trilogy of shorts.
Rate: No pay. Would provide happy hour drinks if you could stay until the end of the shoot. This will be shot in a day. I will also provide a dvd copy of the project once it is completed.

Callback Note: Will call you by phone on or before June 2. Please leave a contact phone number.

Synopsis: Life is an erotic journey—from birth to death. Using close-ups, I will show people’s expressions as they get on the verge or orgasm. The shot will alternately show males and females and chronologically from their teens through old age. I will recreate the stages of life on screen. It will also alternately show them in bed and doing normal daily activities, all having the same “verge-of-orgasm” look

Project Notes: No nudity, but will create an illusion of nudity on screen. Part of each role will be lying on a black bed faking orgasm (Apparently life is a "faked" erotic journey for some...), the shot will only be from shoulders up. So, nothing covering the shoulders to create an illusion of nudity. The other scenes would appear fully-clothed. This is a black and white, silent short.

Audition Note: No audition required, but would like to briefly meet with the performer in person on or before June 2 in Manhattanso that I can explain the project thoroughly.

Role: FEMALE 3 / Non-Union / UNKNOWN_ProjectExtrasRoleType_CODE_OF_2 / Female / All Ethnicities / 25-35. Should be comfortable with having close up shot faking orgasm.

Wardrobe: Unspecified. No nudity but will create an illusion of nudity

Rate: No pay. Will provide copy of project upon completion.

I like how they will pay you with cocktails after faking an orgasm - that's priceless! Usually it happens th other way around, no? And they're not even full-priced drinks - they're happy hour drinks! If I were you, I'd ask be sure to ask for top shelf...

Will He/She Carry A Rainbow-Colored Whip?

‘FIERCIANA JONES...'

The Stupes (prod.) are casting Fierciana Jones and the Quest for Electric Youth, a gay parody of Indiana Jones. Scott XXXXX and Shadee XXXXX, prods. Rehearses Mon.-Wed. evening June & July with a full week of dress rehearsals; runs in August.

Seeking—Feliciana Jones: gay version of Indiana Jones; Chewbitcha/Sarah: Chewbitcha is a Chewbacca-masked woman, Sarah is a Nazi, soprano voice a plus; Meowbles: female, sexy feline woman, romantic, sexual, mousy (Hahaha - get it? A mousy cat!), wears costume and makeup from Cats; Tim/Boy: male, fight scenes, comedic bits, speaking role; Steve/Ninja/Boy: male, fight scenes, comedic bits, non-speaking; Ahmed/Ninja/Boy: male, fight scenes, comedic bit, non-speaking. Note: Do not apply if you are turned off by offbeat, politically incorrect humor such as South Park or Strangers with Candy. (How about if I'm turned off by poorly thought out, half-baked 'parodies'?)

Auditions will be held XXXXX NYC. No pay but credit provided.

I don't recall there being any ninjas, Chewbaccas or large, she-cats in the Indiana Jones series. And I think I would have remembered that...

All Work And No Pay

Lead Actress 30-45 years old, short film on May 10. Urgent! (TriBeCa)
Reply to: XXXXX.org

Sorry for the last minute post, but I need an actress for this short film of 4-6 minute. It's an one day shooting project on May 10th. But you need to read the script, come up with a character analysis and compare with my script analysis during the week.

Please send me your resume and head shot ASAP! Thanks. No pay but lunches. Non-union.

* it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
* Compensation: no pay

You have to do some reading, write a "report" (character analysis) to be "graded" (compared), and all you get is lunch? Sounds a heck of a lot like school, if you ask me.

And what's with the writing assignment - whatever happened to old fashioned auditioning???

Ok, fine, I'll do it - but only if I get to make out with the school's star quarterback, afterward.

The Character Descriptions Alone Are Worth The Price Of Admission

This is from the Equity website - just the character breakdowns:

SAFE — Equity Principal Auditions

Studio Dante
New York, NY

LOA-NYC

Van:
Late 20s – early 30s. Smart in a self-destructive way. Has a rough charm that people often find attractive. Dangerous and endearing. No stranger to pain. A cool exterior on a violent soul.

Ginger:
Mid-20s. Fearless, or at least not afraid of what she already knows. Used to getting attention from men. Determined not to let anything get too close. Fierce. Independent. Eyes on the horizon, looking for home.

Muzzy:
Late 20s – early 30s. Bear-like. Powerful. Thoughtful. Savage. A victim of first impressions. Intuitive. Driven by an intense self-loathing. Maintained by a curious capacity to learn. And to love.

Characters named after vehicles, spices and cutesy nonsense words... they are dangerous with cool exteriors, eyes on the horizon, savage yet endearing, bear-like, curious and self-loathing...

My god... it's all so beautiful! Yet painful! I love it! No, wait...

I loathe it.
