Auditions for Space Specks will be held August 25 and 26 from 1PM to 6PM each day. Auditions are by appointment only since I'm anticipating a large response and have several roles to fill. Time slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Send me an email to indicate a preferred day and time(s) and I will advise you of your appointment and give you directions no later than 8/13. Also in your email, indicate which roles you are interested in and I will email you the script pages for those roles. Please do not attach a headshot to your email as this will fill up my mail box and your email could get rejected. You may indicate in your email where I can download or view your resume/headshot, however, you need to bring one to the audition. The audition process will take 20 to 30 minutes (10 to 15 minutes for paperwork and 10 to 15 minutes for the audition). Actors will be given pages of the script to read and will be video taped as they audition. Whenever possible, actors will interact with other actors for the auditions. Shooting will be done on the weekends starting September 8 and ending October 14 (a detailed schedule will be posted prior to the commencement of taping). Auditions will be held at the location of the set in Vienna, Virginia. The set is being built in the garage of a single family home (see the production page for pictures of the set).
There is the possibility of deferred pay if I'm ever able to make money with this effort (but, the chances of that are very small since this will be shot on video, not film). Principals will receive 2% of the profits. Major bit parts will receive 1% of the profits. Minor bit parts will receive 0.5% of the profits. In order to make a profit, I must recoup over $20,000 in equipment and production expenses and there may be additional expenses associated with distribution. This is a non-Union shoot but SAG actors are welcome. Since this will be shot on video, SAG regulations do not apply.
Uniforms (shirts) will be provided but actors will be required to supply their own black pants and black shoes during the shooting.

I am very interested in anyone with experience in designing and
making-up an alien (i.e., applying the make-up to an actor). If you
know someone, please have them send me an email.
