1 minute student project an adolescent teenager gets an attractive store clerk to unknowingly to bend over and show her thong and makes her nipples hard
Synopsis: Its about a pimp that is attempting to reform himself, his bitches, and the community around him, but is gunned down before he has the chance to do so. he must now perform his reforms from beyond the grave. It's a bit of a raunchy comedy, but not without heart or romance.
Please come dressed in the most pimpish attire you have, although for the shoot I'll have plenty for you.
... WHY DOES he have plenty of pimpish attire?
Sounds like a romantic comedy version of "Bones" with Snoop Dogg!
A friend of mine who is a fairly successful producer of reality tv, and a moderatly successful maker of independent movies collects vintage pimp clothing. A number of his friends do as well...in fact I think that's how they know each other!! There are collectors and fans of everything...
Also, the dress the part even though they already have the outfits is often a publicity stunt. They film it for makings of documentaries and YouTube and such.
I can see this movie having a cult following. The cinematography looks great. It's shot well.
It has come up on a few boards I read/post on about horror and exploitation movies. It consistently gets good reviews.
My only problem with this one might be the 100 a day, especially with nudity and such. But whatever.
Here's the trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKYVtU7G0IA Kind of a poor man's "Machete." I've seen better in its respected genre to be sure...but honetly, I have MADE worse!
I would watch this movie. just based on the title alone I would watch it!
Time to stop mocking the breakdowns and start submitting to them!!
Nuns with Guns has great production value. The production company has a few projects under their belt. I'd say they're making money and making money is considered successful. From the trailer alone, I think it had a good story line, and again, the production value was pretty good. The producers gave it TLC making sure it was done with taste.
It's ok to mock them but also submit if the project is going to go somewhere. $100 a day is slim. It's why they were asking for non union.
Just saw this on Actors Access. It DOES pay, which is good...but what the heck are they talking about???
That one has been circling some of the acting blogs the last couple days!!
Even I have to mock that one!
I think they have seen every 6-8 year old in both LA & NY for this part with no luck. Most 6 year olds were too tall for this. Here's the updated breakdown: (LOL)
[ LITTLE BOY (PEPPER FLYNT BUSBEE) ]
CAUCASIAN, 14 to 18 years old to play 8 to 10 years old; MUST BE EXTREMELY SHORT, 3'0" TO NO TALLER THAN 4'0"! IF YOU SUBMIT LITTLE PERSONS, THEY MUST BE PROPORTIONAL & LOOK BELIEVABLE AS A CHILD. He is extremely small for his age, and thus bullied and treated cruelly by the larger boys his age, who call him Little Boy.
This one is actually on Backstage...lol...
Congress Guru, an independent film. Directed by Paul Kattutalli. Shooting in April in New York City, Washington, D.C., and State College, Pa. Principals and background: firstname.lastname@example.org. Seeking male and female actors, 18–50, Caucasian and East Indian. Especially seeking a white male, 40–50, to play a corrupt politician, and a white female, 40–50, to play the politician's wife. Pay: $10 per hour, no travel or lodging expenses.
$10 an hour?? And no travel or lodging! what a DEAL!
LOL! That might make sense if it was only filming in ONE city (because they could use local hires), but if they're filming in FOUR cities, the actors are guaranteed to HAVE to travel!
Not that this is really that funny, but I have to wonder why the "Mortal Instruments" breakdown for the LEAD male made it to AA. This seems to be a pretty major gig and with Lily Collins already attached I can't see them seriously having to go beyond the agents to find their lead. I imagine that they made a mistake. To bad for Nick Cotton if he actually has to go through the 10 million submissions they're going to get.

Actors needed for a print campaign for Purell Hand Sanitizer. This a humorous and fun shoot, which requires actors (not models) to really help sell the feeling we're trying to convey to the audience/product users. Your inner-character and facial expressions will help us do so.
A relatively simple shoot. One location. Each actor should expect their part to take about an hour for lighting and set up and 15-30 minutes for the actual shoot.
call or email for more information. this is a print shoot so audition will be based on HEADSHOTS and/or online audition media.
submit POLITICIAN / No Union Affiliation / Lead / Male / Asian, Caucasian / 40-65
**PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND ONLY SUBMIT IF THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH** Humorous in tone, this shady politician is utilizing election dollars to pay for a dominatrix in a cheap motel. He is in underclothing, but being spanked by a dominatrix. Note: THIS IS A PHOTO SHOOT REQUIRING ACTOR ABILITY! Facial expressions and positioning within the role are how you will sell the product!
Wardrobe: white tank top, off white boxers/underwear, black socks, sock garters, wristwatch. Please see test/lighting photo for rough idea of motel room set.
Other Current Roles
submit DOMINATRIX / No Union Affiliation / Featured / Female / Caucasian / 45-65
**PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND ONLY SUBMIT IF THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH** Humorous in tone, this dominatrix has been in the business way too long. She's burnt out by the job but doesn't know any better so keeps at it. Not necessarily a sexual situation, but you would be spanking an underweared politician with a wooden paddle in a cheap motel room. The whole shot is lighthearted, humorous and most of all FUN. NOTE: You should NOT be in shape for this role. Cellulite, tattoos, smoker, bleach blonde hair with dark roots, untanned will be all the better for this character.
Wardrobe: black "pleather" dominatrix costume, boots, gloves, makeup, cigarette. Please see test shot/lighting photo for rough idea of motel room set.
I thought this breakdown was so hilarious (in a good way) that I had to sign up for the message board to share. Maybe it's funnier to someone who has been in Our Town... twice... but I think anyone who knows the play (which I presume is probably almost everyone around here...) will appreciate what they chose to say about each character, haha, it literally had me laughing out loud. I put asterisks around some of my favorite parts, haha.
Breakdown (from playbill.com)
PLEASE NOTE -
This production of OUR TOWN is done without New England dialects of any kind and *every effort is made to avoid folksy, twinkly behavior.* The characters are straightforward, hard-working people, who keep their complex emotional lives to themselves. It is not the culture of the town to express oneself.
STAGE MANAGER. An emotionally inscrutable narrator with the authority to stop and start the play at will. (Role will be played by Helen Hunt – SEEKING UNDERSTUDY ONLY)
DOC GIBBS (FRANK), male, 40s. Frank is the (or one of a very few) town doctor in Grover’s Corners. Respected and heeded, he is emotionally distant and *secretly afraid that he may have no idea what he’s talking about.* Like a lot of people he is unsure how he ended up married with a bunch of kids. Like almost all citizens of Grover’s Corner, he avoids, and is embarrassed by displays of emotion, not least of all, his own.
MRS. GIBBS (JULIA) female 40s. A housewife and mother of 2, Julia is embarrassed that she harbors a secret desire to see Paris, France. Rather than discuss it with her husband (who tends to speak dismissively of anything in which he himself is not interested) she hints at it for many years and dies never having actually stated her wish. She is a thorough and practical wife and mother. *Like all parents she is engaged in a lifelong exercise in calculated guessing.*
MRS. WEBB (MYRTLE) female, late 30s at beginning of play. A hard-working and effective housewife and mother of 2, Myrtle had no idea she would eventually fail to execute a fairly significant parental duty: that of informing her daughter what to expect on her wedding night. *She probably benefits from living in a culture in which a parent’s rightness is rarely questioned.*
GEORGE GIBBS ages over the course of the play from 16-30. George is the star athlete in a town of 2,640. He is *an ordinary young man of limited intellect and limited observational skills.* He is consistently confronted over the course of the play with his own selfishness and self-involvement (which is due to carelessness rather than malice). *When pulled off his high horse he has a tendency to shrivel with shame.*
EMILY WEBB ages over the course of the play from 14-27. Emily is the smartest girl in her class in a town of 2,640. She should not be theatre girl pretty, as she is the smartest girl in town, not necessarily the prettiest. She has the two conflicting forces that make up an American teenager; self-righteousness and self-loathing. Self-righteousness seems to win out. *Nice girl, though. Y’know what I mean?*
EDITOR WEBB (CHARLES) male, 40s. The owner and publisher of The Grover’s Corners Sentinel with all the attendant authority that carries. Charles seems a little more interested in the emotional lives of his children than most. One might call him a bit of a smartass.
SIMON STIMSON male, old enough to have seen a peck of trouble. Must play piano. Simon is the organist and choir director of the Congregational Church. He is the town scandal with a commonly known but never spoken of drinking problem. He can only articulate his sadness and rage and isolation after his suicide.
MRS. SOAMES (LOUELLA) female, over 40. A Grover’s Corners woman who *attends weddings as it presents an opportunity to publicly display emotion.*
HOWIE NEWSOME male, over 25. Howie is the Milkman and *the absolute, final, and unimpeachable authority on all things related to the weather in Grover’s Corners*
REBECCA GIBBS female, ages from 11 to 25. George’s little sister. *She loves money. She worries the moon may crash into the earth.* She does not want George to get married. She eventually marries an insurance man in Canton, Ohio.
WALLY WEBB male, 10 or so. *A bizarre little boy.*
PROFESSOR WILLARD male, 40s. A professor at the local University, Professor Willard is an authority on the geological history of Grover’s Corners. *He is not much of a speaker in or out of the classroom.*
CONSTABLE WARREN (BILL) male, 40s-50s. An ordinary, efficient but unhurried man. *Duties include; checking doors after sundown, flood watch, and dealing with that gang that hangs out down by the gulley.*
JOE CROWELL, JR. male, mid teens. A very bright young man who will graduate first in his class, be granted a scholarship to MIT but die in France in WW I. He is resistant to change
SI CROWELL male, mid teens. Si delivers the Grover’s Corners Sentinel in 1904, after his older brother retires. Si, like all the Crowell boys, is resistant to change.
JOE STODDARD male, over 40. Joe is a very typical Grover’s Corners citizen; informed about people’s business, disinterested in emotional displays and therefore *expert at circumventing indulgent behavior.* The town undertaker
SAM CRAIG male 20s. A Grover’s Corners boy who left town to go out west. *Out West it seems, is Buffalo, New York.*
The role of the Stage Manager is cast.
In my opinion, simply the best. HAHAHA
Especially because it's for a legit audition (EPA). I like the sense of humor behind these guys.
On Backstage, a new spec commercial:
Why are they looking for hot 13 year olds? Freaks.
