First auditions

The casting for this film is high on our list of important elements of this production. As Clint Eastwood once said that to make a good film,

“50% of is good writing, 50% is good casting, then the director just has to not f*ck it up”

We decided to begin the casting early on and hold multiple rounds of auditions to be sure we were making the right choices. The first auditions were held in early December and we saw a good 30 people in person and had another 10 self tapes from actors unable to attend the auditions. Although our casting assistant was missing in action, it was a very positive round of auditions. We saw some phenomenal actors and actresses as well as a couple of very strange individuals, putting it lightly, who made for a very interesting audition period. We have 9 people coming back for callbacks during the first week of January – 3 people for each of the lead roles. The final decisions between the returning 9 is going to be difficult as all bring something different and something brilliant to the characters but we are sure to find a fantastic cast to bring the story to life in the near future.
