Union/Non-union Actors, age 25 to 65, Needed for Training Videos

We are supporting the casting of multiple training videos for a DC-area organization.

These training videos are scheduled to be shot the week of April 22nd and the week of May 6th. Actors are not necessarily needed for all the dates, but check your availability.

Many details are still being worked out, including the exact character breakdowns, but here’s what we know:

They are looking for men and women, age 25 to 65. They especially want to see actors from all races and ethnicities, so we are gathering candidates for their auditions, which will be held on Monday, April 8th in downtown DC.

While we have not received final word on the payscale, both union and non-union actors are welcome to submit. Union actors would most likely be paid under the Corporate/Educational (non-broadcast) contract.

If you’re the type of actor who can tackle corporate jargon and acronyms with ease, please: 

  1. Login to or create your free Stonehenge Casting profile. You do not need a full profile for this casting notice.
  2. Make sure you list any partial or full day conflicts under “Union Status and Availability.” Not all actors will be needed for all dates.
  3. Update your headshot, resume, and video links in necessary under “Attachments and Links.”
  4. Submit to the project 2019-04 | Internal Training Videos by this Tuesday, April 2nd. 

We will also be reaching out to actors individually, especially as we get more information, but remember, submitting your profile to the Stonehenge Casting project is the best way for us not to lose track of you.

Questions (but not headshots and resumes) may be directed to casting at teamjabberwocky dot com.

Casting Notice – Multiple Voice Actors Wanted for Neo-Noir Audio Drama

Jabberwocky Audio Theater is looking for multiple voice actors to join our existing company members to record an action-packed, neo-noir mystery this summer for broadcast later this Fall.

The Gambler’s Tale: Outstanding Debts will be a 10-part audio mini-series written and directed by award-winning filmmaker William R. Coughlan and produced by Jabberwocky Audio Theater. Set in Las Vegas in the early 2000s, this tale follows Jimmy Harmon, a young, would-be poker pro as he stumbles into the machinations of a secretive group known as the Quorum.

Some of the characters who appear in this mini-series will reappear in other tales of the Quorum in future seasons, so we’ll be looking for actors we can work with long-term. You can also listen to our other main show, the sci-fi adventure Rogue Tyger, to get an idea of the work Jabberwocky Audio Theater produces.

This mini-series will be recorded at Arlington Independent Media on three separate Sundays in July and August for broadcast on their low-power FM station, WERA, in October. While this show will originate on non-commercial, non-profit radio, actors will receive $75 per recording session.

We are looking to collect all submissions (via Stonehenge Casting) by May 31st in order to schedule auditions at A.I.M. in June.

For further details, submission instructions, and the list of characters, check out the full casting notice on the Jabberwocky Audio Theater web site.

Team J Casting Notice: General Call for Student Films – Spring 2017

Just like the last two years, Team J has been approached to help cast some student films.

Therefore, we’re creating rosters of actors who are interested and available for student films during February, March, and April 2017.

You can learn more about Team J’s use of ‘actor rosters’ here.

While each project is different, we expect most of these films will be shot under a SAG-AFTRA Student Film agreement. Most films will have deferred pay. If actors are paid, it will probably be no more than $125 per 8-hour day. In other words, actors are doing this for what will hopefully be a great acting experience with a talented, aspiring filmmaker.

Team J is collecting actor submissions via Stonehenge Casting. Please create or update your actor profile (it’s free) and be sure to note any schedule conflicts you have for February, March, and April 2017. We expect most shooting to be done in March and early April.

Once your actor profile is updated, submit to one or more of the casting notices below:

General Call: Principal and Speaking Parts for Student Films, Union Agreement – Spring 2017

General Call: Principal and Speaking Parts for Student Films, No Union Agreement – Spring 2017

General Call: Background Performers for Student Films, Union Agreement – Spring 2017

General Call: Background Performers for Student Films, No Union Agreement – Spring 2017

Which casting notices should I submit for?
You can submit for one notice or all of them — depending on your interest. You’re basically pre-qualifying yourself as interested in this type of work (student films) for this period of time (February, March, and April 2017).

What should I put in the “Roles” field?
Since we have not character breakdowns, we suggest some variant of your logline.

When will I hear back from Team J?
You might not hear from us at all — at least not until mid-May.

When we are casting a particular film, we may do a specific casting notice and ask you to submit for it — or we might just contact you and ask you to come in and audition.

But that’s all based on what roles the scripts call for and how well we think you fit said roles.

In Team J tradition, we will follow up with everyone who submitted at the end of the casting period whether or not they were cast (in this case, after April 30th).

Should I put these dates on ‘soft hold’?
Absolutely not.

By submitting to the notices above, you are not on hold, “first refusal,” or anything like that. Keep on looking for work as you see fit.

Team J creates these general calls to help us cast projects quicker by pre-qualifying actors who are interested and available for these types of projects. However, we haven’t offered you a job and you haven’t accepted. You’ve simply said you’d be up for this type of work for this time period. If something works out, great. If not, no worries.

What if you ask me to audition for a particular project and it’s not my thing?
Say “No thanks.”

By putting your virtual hat in the ring for these as-yet-undefined student films doesn’t mean you’re saying yes to appear in any of them.

Some scripts may not be your thing. We’re establishing the general type of work (student films), the general payscale ($125 to probably deferred for all eternity), and time period (February, March, and April 2017).

What if my availability changes during February, March, and April 2017?
Please update your availability in your profile as soon as you know.

Note, we’d love you to keep your availability calendar up-to-date on Stonehenge Casting not just for this project, but for any project we or other filmmakers are casting (we have area producers using the site month in and month out).

If you are not available because you’ve actually heeded our advice and sought work in addition to this general casting notice, congrats! Feel free to submit to future general calls.

Team J Casting Notice: Washington, DC 48 Hour Film Project – 2016

Not a year goes by where Team J’s chief, Bjorn Munson isn’t asked, “Say, do you know some actors who would be interested in being in a 48 Hour Film?”

Well, now we’re going to do something about that.

The Washington DC 48 Hour Film Project will be the weekend of April 29 to May 1st this year. What’s the 48 Hour Film Project you ask? It’s an adrenaline and caffeine-fueled weekend where over 100 teams will be filming 4 to 7 minute films all over the DC Area — and some teams always need more actors.

We’ll be using Stonehenge Casting to collect rosters of actors who are interested in principal or speaking parts as well as background performers (hey, many of these 48 filmmakers have grand visions!).

Two important things actors should remember regarding the 48 Hour Film Project:

First, all the creative work is one within those 48 Hours. No scripts will be written until Friday night, and will need to incorporate a randomly drawn genre, prop, character, and line of dialogue.

Second, the 48 Hour Film Project is an all-volunteer contest. No one on the cast or crew gets paid. Historically, this means both union and non-union actors can and do appear in 48 Hour Films, but SAG-AFTRA actors appear via a short film agreement with deferred pay per the agreement.

There are two different categories you can submit for:

48 Hour Film Project | Washington, DC – 2016 | Principal and Speaking Roles

These are for any and all speaking roles. It could be a big role, it could be a small role. You don’t know any more than the screenwriter does. There might even be frantic script changes when you shoot on Saturday.

48 Hour Film Project | Washington, DC – 2016 | Background Performers

Any 48 Hour Film is, by one measure, an exercise in fun and glory. If you’re up potentially helping out a film — and potentially getting an email blast late Friday night or early Saturday morning seeing if you’re available to just hang out and have fun as a cowboy, a martian, or simply a bar patron, this is for you.

Submission Directions

0) Create a free actor profile on Stonehenge Casting if you haven’t already

We have a FAQ on Stonehenge Casting as well as plenty of How To articles here on the Team J blog.

1) Update the Availability Calendar on your profile
Before you even submit, make sure you’ve listed any conflicts on April 29th, April 30th, or May 1st. 99% of the teams will be doing almost all of their shooting on Saturday, April 30th. If you’re not available then, it’s best to skip this year (hey, there’s the Baltimore 48 in June).

2) Click one or both of the links above to submit to that category
Or you can do it while you’re in Stonehenge Casting. We have an article about it.

3) Fill out Roles (it’s a required field)
In the “Roles” field, you can just look at your logline and tailor it for here. If, after looking at the required genres, you know you can bring something special to something like Western (you’re a horseback rider) or Martial Arts (you’re a black belt), list it.  But remember, you’re still limited to 200 characters for that field, so if you want to list every genre, just put “any genre.”

4) Fill out the Video Audition URL (optional)
If you want to put a demo reel from your main profile here, that’s fine.

5) Click Submit

6) Join a team as you see fit
The casting notices will be open from now until Friday afternoon, April 29th. 48 Hour Filmmakers may contact you beforehand, hoping to lock you into their ensemble — or they might contact you frantically Friday night as they realize they really need someone who knows karate and has clowning experience (for example). It’s completely your call.

We hope you have fun… and frankly, we’re hoping this helps at least one crowd scene happen.

DC-based Web Series Seeks Union/Non-Union Actors (paid)

Note: don’t contact us. We’re putting this here because these fine people are using Stonehenge Casting, Team J’s online casting tool. Contact info and site for submissions below.

Aboveboard Productions is seeking actors for East Coast Grow, a comedy web series about DC’s marijuana industry. The series follows a group of industry professionals as they attempt to navigate DC’s landscape of medical cultivation and broader legalization with well-intentioned enthusiasm, which often results in more trouble than they expect. The first episodes will be shot in DC this fall, with rehearsals beginning in late September.

We will be operating under a SAG New Media Entertainment Contract, so both union and non-union talent are encouraged to apply.

Auditions will take place in DC on Wednesday, August 26th, Saturday, August 29th and Sunday, August 30th, with callbacks on Sunday, September 13th. Actors will prepare sides provided beforehand. All roles are paid.

If interested, submit via Stonehenge Casting (you can create a free profile if you do not already have one). Visit our website at http://aboveboardproductions.com/casting.html for more details about the project and available roles. Questions can be directed to casting@aboveboardproductions.com.

Casting Background Performers for “The Arboretum” (SAG-AFTRA Student Film)

The Arboretum is a short drama being shot in Maryland under a SAG-AFTRA Student Film Agreement.

We are looking for about 20 background performers to serve as nightclub patrons on Monday, March 30th from 3pm to 8pm in Edgewater, Maryland (near Annapolis).

Note: To match the setting to the 20-something leads and their story, we’re skewing younger with the nightclub patrons, so we’re looking for 20s to mid-30s. We realize this precludes The Most Interesting Man in the World, but there it is.

We are offering credit and copy.

If interested, please submit via Stonehenge Casting: http://www.stonehengecasting.com/project_details.aspx?project_id=7

(If you don’t already have a profile, registration is free for actors).

Casting two women for “The Arboretum” (SAG-AFTRA Student Film) PAID

[Note: Team J is supporting this casting, we only list casting notices on our website that we ourselves are working on.]

Account 24 Productions is looking for two women for a short drama, The Arboretum, being shot under a SAG-AFTRA Student Film agreement (union and non-union may apply).

Synopsis
Sarah is a woman full of regrets about her life unaware she is already dead. In a kind of purgatory, she is confronted by Emily, a shadowy side of her consciousness, as she comes to terms with her actions, which may include the accidental death of her boyfriend.

Roles:

Sarah (Caucasian, female, mid-to-late 20s)
Attractive “girl next door.” Sweet, but with a wild side. She has grown up privileged and now deals with being on her own as an adult for the first time. She likes to place blame for her misfortunes on others and adopt a “woe is me” attitude. Smart, but stubborn, she loves drama, but not the aftermath that comes with it.

Emily (Caucasian female, mid-to-late 20s)
Emily is an imagined character: the embodiment of everything bad that Sarah has wanted to do. Emily is an enabler, and in a sense, Sarah’s voice for everything Sarah wants to hear, but cannot admit to herself, whether out of anger or happiness.

Compensation: $100/day plus credit and copy.

Auditions will be by appointment Sunday, March 8th at American University in Washington, DC.

The shoot will be two days: Sunday, March 22nd and another day TBD — both in Baltimore, MD.

Links to demo reels and sample clips optional, but highly recommended.

For consideration, submit your headshot and resume by Wednesday, March 4th at 5pm via Stonehenge Casting at: http://www.stonehengecasting.com/project_details.aspx?project_id=6

Union/Non-Union Casting for Political Response Ads – All Types, 18+

Team J has been asked to potentially support rush casting for political ads created in response to events and other political spots this election cycle.

Because of the fast turnaround nature of these spots, we’re looking to assemble a roster of actors who have availability between October 6 and October 31.

We will contact specific actors with specific details depending on the spot. Right now, we understand there might be both non-union and union projects, both at respective commercial rates.

We are using Stonehenge to collect and organize our submissions. If you already have a profile there, just log in and submit. If you don’t have a profile already, you can create one for free. If you’re already logged in, you can go right to the project link.

Under the “Roles” field, please indicate what general category or categories you wish to be considered for:

Everyman/Everywoman

Whether it’s an earnest young professional or a concerned retiree, we’re looking for all ages and ethnicities of everymen and everywomen. Character actors, your time is now. Chiseled jaws need not apply.

Background performers

While less likely, there is the possibility that we would have a setting requiring background performers, so if you have availability and interest in background work, let us know.

Voiceover

Whether you need to be an authoritative expert OR an earnest citizen about why we need more OR less regulation regarding [issue], we’re looking for both male and female voiceover artists. Note: these will most likely be SAG-AFTRA, but please also submit if you are a non-union voiceover artist.

We look forward to working with many of you.

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.

Learn more about the world of the Broken Continent on our Facebook page at:
