Live Simulation Casting Breakdowns & Information

Casting call for a law enforcement training simulation for ANDE: Rapid DNA for a Safer World: https://www.ande.com/.

This training will take place in Longmont, CO the week of November 4-8, 2019 during standard business hours (8a-5p). Some limited preliminary work required in October. **

Please scroll to read the breakdowns below and direct questions to auditions@griffinstreetstudio.com.

Please note: All candidates must be willing to contribute their actual DNA sample which will be entered into a database to be used during the live simulation training. Samples and database records will be destroyed after the training simulation has concluded. The DNA analysis conducted as a part of the training does not include any genetic, medical, or genealogical analysis. Actors must sign a project contract, a non disclosure agreement, and W-9. Actors will be asked to provide their own contemporary wardrobe. $100 per diem stipend plus craft services will be provided.

Actor’s roles are highly improvisational, and the training simulation storyline is built on the Jack the Ripper Whitechapel murders. Actors who are cast will be asked to memorize and deliver certain specific pieces of character information and improvise the rest in simulated police interviews. The breakdowns provided list specific requirements for a few characters (driving, smoking). All genders and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. We are seeking strong improvisational actors who can fully commit to a character profile. Not all roles will be required all days.
