Kids auditions for the lead role of JADEN:

11-14 y/o BOY to be the lead of feature film “The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter.” JADEN is confident & considers himself to be pretty cool, but there’s definitely an awkward 6th grade boy quality that’s hard to miss. Forced to go on a road trip with his father, Jaden would rather be anywhere but. We are VERY open to kids that have no experience.

Open auditions will also be held in Macon, GA and Myrtle Beach SC – please see –
