If you are serious about your acting career, you need to land a talent agent to represent you. You also need to submit your photos and resumes to casting directors who audition actors. You need to study acting with the best coaches. You need the proper paperwork and permits to be able to work in the many locations that filming takes place these days. You need the best headshots that you can afford, because your headshots are your calling-card to the industry. I highly recommend getting the 2014 Actors Resource Guide eBooks which have comprehensive listings of the top talent agents, casting directors, acting teachers and schools, headshot photographers and photo duplication services, work permits and visa information and applications, and much more important lists and information. The eBooks are available for many locations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Casting call for indie feature film 'Never Goin Back'

Casting Principals for NEVER GOIN BACK

  • Project Type: Feature Film - Independent (Paid)
  • Company: Hungry Bear Productions
  • Location: Dallas area
  • Shooting Schedule: September 18 - October 5, 2014 16 days; 6 days/week
  • Send resumes to: film@buffalocasting.com
CASTING SEARCH – INDEPENDENT FEATURE FILM – NEVER GOIN BACK

SYNOPSIS – 16 year old BFF’s Jessie and Angela are high school dropouts who just lost their jobs at the local pancake house. In an attempt to get rent money and avoid eviction, they embark on a day of adventure that includes dudes, drugs, booze and an ill advised heist. Just another day in the life of your average 16 year old girl.

Director – Augustine Frizzell
Production – Hungry Bear Productions
Casting Directors – Tisha Blood + Matthew Taylor – Buffalo Casting
Interview Date – Saturday July 26, 2014
Callback Date – Saturday August 2, 2014
Shoot Start Date – September 18- October 5, 2014. 16 day shoot, 6 day weeks. Talent will not work all days, however the leads need to have a pretty clear schedule during this time frame.
Rate – Leads – $100 + 15% agency fee (if applicable), per day.
Status – Non-Union Feature Film
Location – Dallas Area Locations. All talent for local hire.
The actors will be paid a stipend and be given food and credit. The Filmmakers are hoping for a festival premiere/tour and are planning to submit to Sundance & SXSW.
Ideally, all actors will be 18 or over but look/play younger, be legal 18 or be home schooled due to the shooting schedule.

CONTENT – Adult content/situations. No Nudity. Implied Drug Use. Implied Sexual Situations. Strong language. The two leads are 16 year old girls who get into a decent amount of trouble. They do drugs and smoke and there’s a make out scene that implies sex. Note on the content from the director – At the moment, the script contains only boy/girl kissing but I’m in the middle of rewrites and girl/girl kissing may be reintroduced if it’s appropriate. (it was in an earlier draft.)  In all my projects, it’s my goal to include as many demographics as possible regarding race/sex/background and sexual orientation. I feel that these areas are vastly underrepresented in film and I hope, when my story allows, to include them.   If included, it would be in a way that’s honest and emotionally relevant to the characters and story, never gratuitous.

OVERALL – We are not looking for squeaky clean actors – looking for real looking kids that could be from Garland Texas. Acting experience is not required.

JESSE – Lead role
16 yrs old – Caucasian female.
Rough around the edges, maybe even a little grungy. Level headed, balances out the flightiness of her best friend Angela but is still a smart ass. Wants to be responsible but has a hard time making the best decisions. Loves smoking pot, video games and guys.

ANGELA – Lead role
16 yrs old – Caucasian female.
Natural and unglamorous but enjoys looking cute and wearing a little makeup. A big thinker and dreamer with ideas that aren’t always well thought out. Charismatic and very enthusiastic. Loves guys, drugs and being the center of attention.

DUSTIN – Lead role
18-21 yrs old – Caucasian male.
Ex-athlete. Tall, handsome, clean and charismatic. A trouble maker with kind heart, he’s not the brightest guy around but he’s sweet. Jesse’s older brother. Tries to be a thug but he’s not fooling anyone.

RYAN – Lead role
18-21 yrs old – Any ethnicity.
Dustin’s best friend. A little preppy, comes from money but has strict parents whom he rebels against by hanging with wannabe thugs and dealing drugs. A little bratty but also wants to fit in.

BRANDON – Lead role
18-30 yrs old – Caucasian or Hispanic Male.
Overweight, sloppy and unkept. He’s funny and lewd. A Jonah Hill type. Comedic/Character.

All talent must and be legally eligible to work in Dallas, Texas and in the United States.

Independent film 'Windsor' casting calls for actors, extras, and crew members

casting calls for actors

Windsor Operating LLC and Turnpike Pictures will begin shooting the indie feature film Windsor on July 28, 2014 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Casting directors in Los Angeles and Dallas are accepting photos and resumes from actors to be considered for various speaking roles. People interested in working as fully paid extras and stand-ins can submit to the extras casting directors in Texas. In addition, experienced film crew members can email their info for consideration. Shooting will run through August 23, 2014. All actors, extras and crew members must be legally eligible to work in Texas and in the United States.


Windsor centers on six best friends, who in their last year of high school, prepare to leave their small, struggling hometown of Windsor, a place caught in the slow, fine-grinding wheels of American big business that seem to have no side doors for small town America. One of the six, Maisie, whose father is about to be released from prison, decides she can't leave the town where she has been embraced so lovingly since the dark day that her father nearly killed the man whose company foreclosed on their family farm. The town's patriarch, Gil Denton, a no nonsense, wealthy landowner dying from cancer, loves these six kids, and in his remaining time with them he serves as a sounding board, dependable guide, and sympathetic friend - while providing them a wistful link to a past they will never know.

Starring in Windsor is three-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Barry Corbin playing the town patriarch Gil Denton, Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Stelio Savante plays the role of Perry Gandy, Joe Stevens plays Kline Coley, Mark Adam Goff plays Hank Kinsey, and Peyton Clark plays Itchy. Porter Farrell will direct from his own original screenplay. Producers are Porter Farrell, John J Kelly, Allison Graham, and Adam Dietrich.
