Once you are at the audition, you will be asked to study script pages for a few minutes and then you'll be placed on camera so we can hear you with the script dialogue. The audition will be video taped for review later. Then you will be thanked and you can leave. It's a very quick process and painless. Not like American Idol at all which is what people fear. The best advice, whenever you audition for a film, is to be natural on camera. I can't stress enough how important that is. You don't want to sound like you are reading a script and you don't want to sound like you are projecting your voice to the back of an auditorium which happens sometimes with experienced stage actors. When you are on camera, the audience is right there and not sitting far from you like when you are performing on stage. There's no need to exaggerate your performance. Being and sounding natural on camera is very important when acting for film. I usually select the actors within 2 weeks of having final auditions.
Typically 5-9 weeks before filming begins, I'll announce our casting location along with the date/time in the Quad Cities (Rock Island and Moline Illinois, Davenport and Bettendorf Iowa) to audition in person.Anyone 18 years and older can audition as I will look for all types for different characters during casting. You should bring a head shot (examples below are of from left Kimberly Kurtenbach Furness and Renee Dunakey - whom I've cast in roles) and resume with any acting experience which you may have and your contact information. These materials are non returnable. Head shots can be professionally taken or be as simple as a photo taken at home.
Quad Cities casting is completed for Siege Of Evil. The cast includes Desiree Muse, Scott Naumann, Amelia Foster, Jerry Wollking, Patti Flaherty, Jim Seward, Barbara Engstrom, Denise Yoder, and Jenaya Carman. (Update: Congratulations to Jenaya Carman who won Best Scream Queen at the Horror Dance Film Festival for her role in the film)
