Salty Bovine Film’s latest endeavor is an experimental improvisation project for a full-length feature. One section of this film is a party shoot that will take place in late June or early July 2010. There will be a one day requirement for a rehearsal with cast and crew and one day for shooting. The location is already set for northern central Massachusetts. The crew will use hand held media (phones, digital cameras, etc) to record and document the day (2PM-9PM shooting day) hence why they must audition as well because they will inevitably be on camera. If you would like to just solely act and not volunteer to be a crew person to record footage through out the night, then please make note of that.
Once shooting begins, the cast will remain in character constantly.
As an actor (crew member) you will design your character with the director (Curtis) over the month of May and into June. You will be given a confidential list of objectives and rules that you must abide by for the shooting. You are to improvise everything and successfully carry out your mission through out the shoot. You must keep it secret from other cast members and crew in order for the film experiment to work.
