Open casting Call in Atlanta, Ga for “The Shot”
Location: Atlanta, Ga
“The Shot” is a story about the Assassination of Dr. King. As we approach the 51st Anniversary of Dr. Rev King’s assassination, I was always thought of who the assassin was.
James Earl Ray is a man with a record of petty crimes and a man who did not seem intelligent enough to pull off such a heinous crime by himself. I do find it very intriguing to learn of the young South African Photographer Joseph Louw who was with Dr. King accompanying him when this occurred while also creating a documentary on the life of Dr. King. So I see this as an opportunity to tell the story of the humble young photographer behind the camera and show the world the true story through the lenses of Joseph Louw. From this point of view I created “The Shot”.
Auditions Date: April 6th from 12:30pm – 2:30pm.
Location: Studio 1
