Looking for an actor, male or female, to play a role in an episode of Terry Tucker the Midnight Trucker, a Minneapolis based web-series. Age range is from 12-18, or an ability to play a kid (open to comic re-interpretation of role).
The show follows the midnight rides of Terry Tucker and the strange, mysterious, and sometimes even otherworldly hitchhikers he picks up (full show synopsis below).
The character need for this episode, with the self-given nickname of "Turbo Tank" is a teenager who loves laser tag and is hitchhiking his way to "the Laser Dome", a fictitious arena for ultimate laser tag.

If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Synopsis of Show:
Terry Tucker the Midnight Trucker follows the midnight rides of Terry Tucker and the strange, mysterious, and sometimes even otherworldly hitchhikers he picks up. With a gift for the gab and an attentive ear for tales told by the passengers he picks up, Terry is a positive, fun-loving, freewheeling, son-of-a-gun with a yearning for an old-fashioned conversation on the lonely dark highway of the night. Like a road full of twists, the conversations often take their own turns for the comedic and extraordinary, but it's always a fun and zany ride!
As a web series, each episode of Terry Tucker the Midnight Trucker ranges in duration from 5 to 8 minutes and focuses on a single ride-a-long. The surreal and humorous conversations that ensue carry Terry and his passenger to a moment of trial and conflict that each must come to terms with in order to understand the other. Though comic in tone, the show also reveals Terry’s humanistic desire to connect with the offbeat individuals he meets.
Episodes close with Terry's musings, which occur in voice over, and reveal Terry placing the plights of the characters he meets in a larger context, a dualistic yin and yang of the moment. He writes these collected experiences and thoughts into a book he refers to as the "Tao of the Road." The book contains all Terry’s ramblings of nights learned and nights lost, and serves both as a comic understanding of the human trajectory and a philosophy of life on the road.

My name is Nathan Hastings, I'm a senior at the U of M majoring in Media Production. Over the summer, myself and a group of experienced production students/graduates will be filming the first season of "So-Called Superheroes," a comedy web series about real-life superheroes.

for an experimental short film
May 7th, 2013
I'm an interdisciplinary artist looking for 2-3 actors, 1 audio person, and 1 video person for a short, experimental, narrative work-in-progress. Ideally, we will shoot about 5 remaining scenes end May/early June, in rural Minneapolis at a country house and a barn. I'm looking for artists, experimentors, collaborators.
- 2 daughter characters, 12-15yo, and 1 father character - Caucasian - would be great if one family!
- 1 proficient audio person, preferably with own equipment, to record basic dialogue and outdoor sound
- 1 proficient video person, preferably with own equipment, to film and provide cinematographic input
My budget is modest--I got a very small grant last year that I'm really trying to stretch to cover a few things. I'd like to find like-minded people interested enough in the project to accept a small daily fee of about $100 for 2-3days of work and not charge extra for their own equipment, though I'm prepared to rent if need be--and I do have access to equipment through an organization where I'm taking a filmmaking class.
This is a spare and amateur production, but an interesting project I think. Briefly, the project is called A Purity Ball, and ultimately it will be combine this short video with a staged production. In a way, it's about "outsiders' fantasies of the mainstream." It presents a main character in love with a dad and daughters as they're about to go to "a purity ball." It draws out the relationship between a romanticized notion of their world, and an opposite world of art, presented through an encounter with another character's bizarre performance in a barn. The main character is stuck inbetween, desiring impossible membership to one world, and relegated to the other as an outsider. And... there's more. Just wanted to throw out a dense description of some sort here, to pique interest...
If you're interested in this little venture, please be in touch.
Thanks for reading~

Time, Film actor call
April 19th, 2013
Hello everyone! I am Evan Leslie, a high school film student in Minneapolis.
I am looking for a male actor, ranged 19-24 for a short film- roughly 15 minutes, perhaps less.
The script is going to be copied over below.
I do not have a deadline for this project, however until May 10th, I will be in schooling, and available only on the weekends.
GIven the fact that the entirety of the film takes place in one day, in a single setting, filming would preferably done in a single session, which would most likely last around 6 hours at the most. The scene takes place at around 6:00 or 7:00 pm, and there are many shots with windows in them, so these scenes would need to be done at the corresponding time in the day. If need be, this can obviously be split up into multiple days. There are other scenes which are not time-descript, but the large majority will be.
Please feel free to contact me if you're interested, and I would love to get some background iformation, previous work, and all that jazz before making a casting decision.
The acting itself will require some very convincing crying, anger, and general desperation to really sell the sript. There will also be an internal monologue to record, preferably by the actor who I will be working with, but if need be, I can find a Voice Actor, and do some very minor editing to the script to fit it all together.
Thank you very much, I look forward to hearing from everyone, script is written below the line!
Time. Final Title yet to be decided.

SITTING IN THE CHAIR, AT THE LAPTOP VISIBLY DISTRAUGHT. HE IS TYPING ON A FORUM SIMILAR TO /R/SUICIDEWATCH, OR EQUIVALENT SUICIDE HELP HOTLINES. HE IS CLEARLY A VOLUNTEER, NOT A PROFESSIONAL, NOT ASSOCIATED WITH A PARTICULAR ORGANIZATION. JUST TRYING TO HELP.
Shot: Sweeping movement on floor, start far from center of
attention. Bring the camera through the door arch, closing
up to a near 30¬? angle, looking upwards. Should see both
laptop backing, and face of actor. If possible, feet, which
are frantically tapping up and down. [10 second Shot?]
Change shot to close up of actor's face. He is around 18-20
years old. Small beads of sweat forming on his forehead.

what was I told to save me?
Back to rocking back and forth. Hands on top of head.

Life can suck. Want to know what

from its resting place. Close shots of unlocking the gun,
sliding the magazine into the handle, and chambering the

Need Actor in Early 20s for Short Film
March 31st, 2013
Looking for an actor in early to mid 20s who wants to do unpaid work to make stuff for either reel, fesitval showcasing or just for experience. I need someone completely dedicated. Not just an actor who can just say lines and act, but someone who is willing to transform into a character and great at improv. Think of this as you being uncomfortable in every scene and transforming into a character for every scene, who can do long takes and stay completely in character.
The film is a short film about a road trip between a couple who are drifting apart from each other, essentially. This role is for the character of Brian Foster who is physcially skinny and somewhat frail. Mentally and emotionally, he is sweet and very generous.
Please email your headshots as well as links to YouTube or any other work if you have it online somewhere. I will try to look through all headshots and judge physically what I want for the character, and then would like to meet you to talk about the role in person from there. No auditions. I am going by headshots only on this and experience.
Must be available for the next couple months. Not every day but at least once or twice a week for an entire day.
