Terrific! Can't wait to see you! We are having a blast and editing. The list is not final and subject to be tweaked through June but here's some additional information:
Announcing the CAST LIST for:
It Came from the B-Movie Backlot! -
Setting: Hollywood California – August 31, 1994. Welcome to the Acme Movie Studio. Caution - this is an active film location and production is underway. Please remain within authorized locations at all times and enter at your OWN RISK!
A movie studio in rocky times attempts to salvage their latest horror picture. Hopefuls look to audition for the show and others seek tinsel town fame. A BYOV Dramedy.
Hollywood CA ’94 - Foreign investors buy a movie studio with a rocky past and are trying to save a horror film in progress by turning it into a bankable B--Movie classic! Production continues on a historic movie lot cursed by decades of flops, scandals and unexplained accidents. Industry buzz builds as an expensive looking House is revealed as the new movie set, but strangely seems to appear overnight. A big budget movie seems risky, but failure is an alien concept to this Production Company; they believe that Notorious Location + Eclectic Cast+ Young Director = Money Making Magic! Most of the original talent was retained, but some roles must be recast. For one night only, hopefuls with head shots are invited to an open audition and ambitious skilled creatives are welcome to interview for crew vacancies (experience working with monstrous personalities is a plus).
