Please log on to our New York site for more information about this announcement.
I am excited to announce that we will be casting male roles for our feature length film - The Boyz of Summer by Anthony DiFonzo - this Saturday. Female roles will follow soon. The film is a classic, nostalgic look back at a group of life-long friends growing up in New Jersey. It's a great script, and a great opportunity for anyone looking to participate in a feature length film. We will shoot throughout the summer.
Auditions will be held at the Algonquin Theater this Saturday (May 16th) from 4PM - 8PM. Audition by appointment only. Please send your headshots and resumes to amber.yoder [at] nycfilmcollective.com The Algonquin is located at 123 East 24th Street between Park Avenue South & Lexington Avenue.
We are very low budget, so although we cannot offer payment we can happily offer deferred wages should the film be a financial hit. We're looking for people with talent, passion and energy to help us get this done! For this round of casting, we will be seeking the following male leads:
ROCCO: early 20s, Italian, a Jersey boy home for the summer from art school (please have valid driver's license)
SALLY: early 20s, Italian, lighthearted and lovable
DREW: early 20s, a party boy with an intense personality
JASON: early 20s, bad boy with a jealous streak (please have valid driver's license)
A Painter needs only a paintbrush and a canvas; a musician needs only two turntables and a microphone! Yet to be a filmmaker it seems thousands of dollars are needed to make something that nobody is going to see anyway or to be an actor you must wait for someone else to give you exposure. If you're one of those people waiting around for financing to come through so you can make or star in Citizen Kane II that's cool, I'm not.
This organization is for people who have stories to tell and opinions to express. Lots of people sit around and talk of all the great things they are going to do, that's not you. You want to get out there and make interesting films/videos with few resources beyond your brain and drive.
So if you like writing, shooting video, acting, organizing shoots, recording sound, editing sound or video, lighting, costume, set design, location, make-up, animation or whatever, just come out and get involved, it will be fun and rewarding.
This is not about being cool, it doesn't matter if you want to be involved in controversial stuff or kids stuff, bring whatever you want to the table. Looking forward to hearing your ideas.
