1,700 Submissions!

22 Jun

Wow, the response to our recent audition notice was phenomenal: we received over 1,700 submissions for three primary roles!  Many actors mentioned that they resonated with the characters and felt compelled to submit themselves for consideration.

So after reviewing headshots, resumes and videos, we scheduled 96 women to audition for Bethany, 70 men for Rob and 26 for Alex.  I’m very confident that we will find the right actors for our film.

Auditions will take place this Wednesday, June 23rd and  Thursday, June 24th.  Then, a chosen few will be asked to return on Friday for “callbacks,” which will allow me and Jennifer to spend much more time with our top picks.  If all goes well, we will make our final decisions this weekend!!!

I’m very excited for the audition process and I look forward to sharing how it goes with you later this week.

    wow, that’s quite a volume of response. you’re seeing 130 people over 2 days? are they all going to actually read or are you just going to see them in person?

      Hey, Brian. So here’s the thing: I will be reading the men WITH the women! That’s the key to the time. So, here’s the breakdown: 46 couple each day (46 men & 46 women), at 10 minutes each couple for a total of 8 hours each day. However, we will spend a lot more time with the individuals during callbacks on Friday! I’m really excited and thanks for keeping up!
