WIFV Media Job Fair: Saturday, March 28th

We’ll have more details as we get closer, but we wanted to let everyone know that Team J –and specifically Stonehenge Casting– will be at the Women in Film and Video (WIFV) Media Job Fair this March. Specifically, it’s on Saturday, March 28th from 12 noon to 3:30pm in downtown DC (Gallery Place/Chinatown).

You can learn more about the event at the link above, but in general it’s a great way for film and media freelancers to talk to companies about new opportunities. We’ll be there demoing Stonehenge for interested producers and hopefully have a spare laptop for actors to set up their profiles.

Looking to Complete the Journey to The Broken Continent

As many of you know, we completed principal photography on The Broken Continent pilot this past September, the ambitious fantasy web series we’re producing with Ciscovaras Pictures and Cavegirl Productions.

The team is busy working on editing the pilot, but we need help from you and about 70 other fine souls to help us raise finishing costs for special effects, music, and promotion (a good chunk of 2013 will involve us traveling to festivals and conventions promoting it and getting it seen).

So especially if you didn’t have a chance to contribute before, check out our Kickstarter campaign now. It all ends midnight (Eastern) on Friday, December 28.

You can also spread the word and tell people to go to GetBroken.tv!

Funding the Broken Continent

For those of you waiting for the next installment of Bjorn’s series on casting, don’t worry. He was not dragged off for daring to state that actors should be conscientious and filmmakers should be polite.

He’s been caught up in the Kickstarter campaign for The Broken Continent, the self-same fantasy webseries he’s blogging about. Apparently, swords don’t forge themselves and they need some money for goods and services common to cinematic enterprises.

We think it’s highly unlikely any of the readers of this Blog have not also seen his posting on Facebook or from the Team J mailing list, or even io9, but just in case you haven’t, please check it out. You can even go to getbroken.tv, which will take you to the same Kickstarter link above.

3rd Actor’s Center Expo, Saturday, September 20th

As you know from our last entry, Stonehenge 8 will occur next year. In the meantime, many actors may want to check out the Third Annual Actors’ Expo, put on by the folks at the Actors’ Center.
As you may not know, many of us at Team J are members of the Actors’ Center and have attended previous Expos. You’ll find a number of workshops and panels that will help you in auditioning technique as well as learning what casting directors are looking for.

Stonehenge VIII to be in ’09

After two enormously successful Stonehenges so far this year–including one in a new city, Baltimore–we were hoping to finish the year with a third henge in a new location to replace our favorite DC place: the Warehouse Theater.

Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find a comparable place that’s also affordable, so we are postponing Stonehenge VIII until next year. As always, the event will be announced here on the Blog and on the Team J web site. When we know, you’ll know.

Cheers and have a pleasant rest of 2008!

2008 Stonehenge Dates Announced!

There will be at least three henges this year in three locations: DC, Maryland, and most likely Virginia.

The dates are:

March 29th in Washington DC

May 18th in Baltimore, MD

September 20th (or 27th) in Arlington VA (or DC)

You can learn more about the schedule in the Stonehenge section of the site.

We’ve also updated the actor’s info and FAQ to explain the new lottery system.

Enjoy!
