If you have ever dreamed of acting in a film, here’s your chance! The Lake Placid Film Forum is looking for 20 actors interested in performing in the films created as part of the Forum’s popular 2011 SLEEPLESS IN LAKE PLACID 24-Hour Filmmaking Competition.
- Actors may or may not have extensive experience acting, but need to be available all day on THURSDAY, JUNE 16, which is the principal day of shooting.
- Actors will have information and a picture posted on the Lake Placid Film Forum website and will take part in a casting call at 8:30 AM on Thursday that will determine which of the 5 teams of filmmakers they will be working with.
This is a fun opportunity to play a key role in the creation of a short film, to gain an insider’s view of how films are made, to take part in a terrific regional film festival, and to see yourself on the big screen! There is a special prize for best performance by male / female actor. For actors, this is a great portfolio piece. For people new to acting, who knows? This could be the start of your new career!
CASTING CALL: 8:30 – 10:00 THURSDAY, JUNE 16
