Atlanta Casting Calls
'THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE' CASTING IN ATLANTA It is very important to the director and I that we make these scenes as authentic as possible. The script will bring to light many of the issues (PTSD) that some soldiers face on their return from war. It's a story that needs to be told and we want to do it in the best possible way. I have included more info below on the novel and script. The two major scenes that we are seeking veterans for are: There are some smaller scenes but we will check all your availability once you have decided that you are interested. 1) Soldiers' plane ride home from Iraq 2) VA hospital 1) The Plane scene at this time will shoot on Feb 8th. We will shoot a different portion of the scene (on the tarmac) on Feb 17th, so ideally you would be able to work both days! These dates could change and in the movie industry, they often do. We are seeking younger veterans and active duty for this scene. Ages 18-30 Feb 8th – Plane Scene will shoot at the Delta Museum in Atlanta Feb 17th – Tarmac will shoot in Kennesaw 2) For the VA scene, we are seeking ALL ages 18 and up. As of now this scene shoots Feb 9th and/or Feb12th. Again this could change as well. We will shoot in the Emory Hospital area. If you are interested in being apart of this project, then this is what I need: Please email [email protected] Please send us some CURRENT pictures of you now. We would love to see some ones from your military days, too, just so I can get a better feel. List your age, what years you served, and if you served in a war, please list it/them. Also, include your phone number. You receive 8 dollars an hour for the first 8 hours then 12 dollars every hour after. Please feel free to pass this email onto anyone that may be interested as well. This will truly be an amazing expereince. THIS CASTING IS ONLY FOR MILITARY VETERENS!! #atlanta #atl #film #tv #theatre #actingjobs #atlantacasting #castingcall #extras #extrascasting #atlantaextras #setlife #igersatl #weloveatl #atlfilm #filmjobs #featureroles #production #actors #acting
