Casting Call this weekend at Confederation College

THUNDER BAY – Do you have visions of being in the movies? Confederation College’s Film Production program is seeking actors and extras for the many short films produced each year. An open casting call is taking place on Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Shuniah Building lobby area at Confederation College.

“The Film Production program creates over 200 short films a year and there is nothing more exciting than to see the results on the big screen and on TV,” said Lee Chambers, Instructor, Film Production program. “You could be a lead actor or an extra in a film made with top quality Hollywood equipment.”

Getting added to the casting books is simple. Members of the community can attend the casting event, fill out a simple contact form and have their photo taken. The casting books will be provided to Film Production students who will then contact the actors when it’s time for production.

Brittany Moratz took part last year, receiving a call to perform in a student production. “I had an amazing time and met incredible people with inspiring visions,” said Moratz. “I can’t wait to do it again!”

Coming to the casting call may also lead to opportunities outside of the College. Casting books are shared as an open resource to other community filmmakers and external producers needing talent.

All are welcome to attend the casting; no experience is required. Those unable to attend the casting call can visit www.conflix.com to submit their details.

A reminder that during bridge construction, the Shuniah Building must be accessed from the Balmoral St. entrance.
