North Carolina Film Auditions – Acting
Location: Charlotte, NC
Type: Film / Trailer
Garcia Talent is currently holding auditions by video submissions for many open roles for a film trailer that will be filming in Charlotte North Carolina in February 2014. They are casting actors of many ethnicities, please see the character breakdowns below. Actors applying for the roles will need to submit their reels via email.
“We Are Familia” – The film is about a Black College that begins to give scholarships to other ethnicities causing an uproar on campus. The film addresses race issues and culture.
The film is written and created by James Jones.
When a Historically Black College gives scholarships to twenty incoming Latino freshmen, the campus falls into a cultural uproar, as the African American and Latino students struggle to coexist. The campus is further disrupted when a Latino student of Afro descent is awarded a scholarship, which in turn challenges everyone’s thoughts on race, ethnicity, and culture. In the end, the students learn that what unites them is stronger than what separates them and that “family” extends past all color lines and language barriers.
