The casting agency recommends that all interested parties choose a casting location, date and time, and don’t be late. They strongly advise showing up during mid-day audition times to avoid long lines. Be prepared for the possibility of long lines during all casting hours and bring bottled water, snacks and reading materials to weather through the wait.

What should you bring to the open casting?
Here’s what the casting company recommends as guidelines to follow:
Bring a 3-inch x 5-inch current color photo of yourself. It does not have to be professional. They request that there be no wigs, makeup or sunglasses worn in photos. Shots should be shot from the waist up only. Please do not say “aargh” in your photo.
Bring a pen or pencil to fill out any necessary paperwork on-site.
Attendees do not need to prepare for an audition as the casting company will only look at you, have you fill out a registration card, attach your color photo, and send you on your way immediately thereafter.
The casting agency will only seek submissions from men at this time who are 18 years and older and are legal to work in the United States. The casting company does not need any women or children for this portion of filming.
Live on O`ahu or Kaua`i and can’t make the open casting call?

Parties may still be considered for the film, based upon availability. The casting agency requests that parties follow these submission guidelines:
Mail a current 3-inch x 5-inch color photo (no 8-inch x 10-inch photos unless you submit a 3-inch x 5-inch photo along with it).
Photos do not have to be professional and should be shot from the waist up only.
Please do not say “aargh” in your photo.
Do not wear any wigs, makeup or sunglasses in your photo.
On the back of your photo, include your height, weight, shirt, coat, and pants size. Also include your full name, phone number and email address.
Mail submission to: Sande Alessi Casting, 13731 Ventura Boulevard 2nd Floor, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423. Indicate the island that you live on by writing either O`ahu or Kaua`i on the front of the envelope (for example: Attention – Oahu Local Hire)
