Teen Actors in Utah

Location: Utah

Type: Film

Location: Saratoga Springs, Utah and surrounding areas

Type: Video

I’m currently casting for an 11 episode Percy Jackson web-series, based on the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. The series is about a boy named Percy Jackson, who finds out he is a son of Poseidon, and his demigod friends as they embark on dangerous quests and battle the evil forces of Kronos’s army.

Listed below are the lead roles, however, this series will require having a lot of extras. Casting calls for them will be posted separately. It’s preferred that the actors live in Saratoga Springs and the surrounding areas, but as long as all actors have transportation to each film shoot and rehearsal, actors from farther cities will be considered.

If you see a role you’d like to audition for but you don’t meet the eye/hair color requirements exactly, still feel free to send in an audition; that won’t stop you from being considered, however, actors matching the character’s appearance will be considered first. Age is not as big of a deal- if you can look and act the age, you will be considered.

-ages 13-16
-caucasian
-black hair, green eyes
-must be willing to partake in sword fighting

IMPORTANT INFO:
-Filming begins in June 2019 and will continue through the summer of 2019 and possibly the fall. During the school year, episodes will be filmed mostly on Saturdays or extra days off school. During the summer, weekend shoots will be most common, but during the week shoots may be possible.
-Cast is responsible for getting their own transportation.
-Filming for episode one (Capture the Flag) will take place on June 28th, 2019. . More information on time, rehearsals and attire will be sent out with the official call sheet once the entire cast is gathered.
-If nessicary, there will be meetings the day before or a few days before the shoot to read through the lines and rehearse any fight choreography.
-It’s very important that cast members are able to show up to each rehearsal and shoot date that your character is in. Actor’s schedules can be worked around, but it’s essential there aren’t too many conflicts.
-This series is being made out of love for the books and filmmaking. This series will air on YouTube in July, 2019. I, the director, am going to be applying for many film schools this year including UCLA and NYU, meaning this series is going to be a huge part of the portfolio I show the admissions offices.

    Hello,
    I deeply apologise if this is just me being incompetent but I am not able to access your information site or send you and audition via email because the address listed doesn’t seem to exist.

    If this was just a scam, you did a great job, I totally fell for it, but I really hope it is just a misunderstanding because I’d love to be part of your production.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
