Casting Kids 8 to 14 for SAG Feature


PLEASE: Follow the instructions in this ad EXACTLY or your submission may be deleted.

We are beginning our search for talent for a Family Action/Adventure full feature shooting in the CT area this summer/fall. This will be a SAG shoot at the standard rates if all goes as planned. “Name” actors can negotiate more pay, however; no more than low seven figures.

This is the first phase of our casting process. If you are chosen from out of the first batch of submissions, you will then be asked for a demo reel or to audition. First auditions can be done remotely. Complete instructions will accompany the Request Letter at that time.

The title of the project is currently referred to as “ES1”.
This is the Writer/Director information:
