WSCU is Looking for Actors
GUNNISON, CO — Interested in being an actor? Want to appear on the big screen? Open film auditions will be held Monday evening, January 28th, 7:00-8:30 P.M., in the Western State Colorado University (WSCU) Studio Theatre in Taylor Hall for student productions. All interested actors are welcome at this casting call.
Students from WSCU’s advanced filmmaking course are seeking actors for student productions to be shot locally during late February, March and early April this winter. Actors must generally be available during this time period.
A one-minute (memorized) monologue is required. In addition, sides (pages from a script) will be provided at the audition.
These films will be screened on the big screen in the Prosser Theatre in the WSCU University Center on May 1st. Copies of the films will be provided to actors as well. This is a chance for actors to build their resumes and performance reels towards future work.
The involvement of professional or quasi-professional actors is crucial to making this learning process work for all parties. Mostly young adults, adults, and seniors are needed for these projects. There may be a child part or two.
It is Professor Lucido’s intention that meaningful, character-driven, stories of human emotion are depicted in this process where both filmmaking student and area actors learn and benefit from the experience.
Potential storylines include:
a. A man escaping a violent world must kill to save the ones he loves.
b. If you knew you were going to die, how would you spend your time?
c. A simple family is shocked to find out their mother is in serious debt to a loan shark.
d. In a sterile and controlled future, suicide is an everyday occurrence; the ‘people’ in power look for a cause.
e. Locked in her room by her mother, after injuring her head in an accident, a girl develops insomnia; she sees and hears things her mother says aren't there.
