Union/Non-Union Casting for Fantasy Web Series – All Roles Paid

Ciscovaras Pictures and award-winning director Francis Abbey, in conjunction with Team Jabberwocky and Cavegirl Productions, are seeking over 40 actors for its production of “The Broken Continent” — an epic fantasy web series set in a land torn apart by a vengeful god where ambitious men vie for dominion and both nobles and commoners struggle to survive.

The “pilot set”  of webisodes will tentatively be shot near the DC area this September under a SAG New Media Entertainment Contract, so both union and non-union are invited to apply. Depending on the role, costume fittings and fight rehearsals will occur before the principal photography in September.

The list of roles is below. All roles will be paid. Whether you are interested in a principal, stunt, OR background role, please email us at casting@brokencontinent.com with:
*Your resume (PDF, .doc, or .docx only)
*A small headshot (100k or less in size, please)
* What role(s) you are interested in.

Actors will be called in for auditions in DC on Sunday, May 20th and Monday, May 21st to read from sides provided beforehand. Callbacks will be Sunday, June 3rd and Monday, June 4th.

Roles that require stage combat experience are noted below. Also, there are many cultures across The Broken Continent, so the ability to do accents is a plus for just about all the roles.

    Response to the casting call has been overwhelming.

    Thanks to the actors who alerted us to the messages of our mailbox being full in the wee hours Thursday morning.

    Without getting too technical. Our primary mailbox was full, but we got all of your headshots and resumes in our secondary mailbox. We’ve cleared up the issue, so hopefully no one will get any error messages moving forward.

    If you are at all concerned as to whether we received your materials (it should have only affected people from about 12 midnight to 9am), please feel free to query us at casting@brokencontinent.com and we will respond as soon as we were able.

    This is Bjorn, the casting director for Broken Continent.

    The response from all you actors has excited us here with the production crew as much as it’s been overwhelming. We’re confident we can get a top notch cast for what is a very ambitious production.

    Two things I wanted to note: First, if you’re an actor and you haven’t submitted already, please go ahead and submit.

    Second, and this falls into the “tough love” category: PLEASE be mindful of the size of your headshot. I listed 100k for a reason.

    We don’t need to print your headshot out and 100k is more than big enough to see what you look like on a computer or mobile device. Many of you have done this, but far too many of you have sent us honkin’ 6mb headshots. In case you were wondering why our primary mailbox filled up, that’s why: people didn’t follow directions.

    Now, we DO NOT need any of you to resend a smaller size headshot at this time, I simply ask that those of you might not know how to resize your photos, please learn for next time. Following directions makes casting easier and, more importantly, not following directions makes baby pandas cry. I can abide tough jobs, but not panda abuse.

    Okay, tongue out of cheek. Thanks for reading and we’ll see many of you soon.
