Film students at CalPoly SLO are planning a Zoom casting session at 10:00am this Saturday morning. Actors are encouraged to apply by sending an e-mail with a resume and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org, then they will send an invitation to the casting session. They are looking for a one-minute monologue from actors. Additionally, if actors need more flexibility, they will accept taped, one-minute-long auditions submitted by Saturday.
As far as production details go, locations are still being determined by the production team for each script, but there are numerous shorts being filmed. A complete list of roles and films are below.
These films are being produced by students at Cal Poly SLO, and they are hoping to have these films premiere at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact them at email@example.com.
