Project Description:
Knit Night is a comedy web series that centers around a group of women trying to navigate the perils of retirement by forming a knitting club. From director and creator Hallie Tarpley, Knit Night is sure to bring a smile to your face, on set and off. 

This project is being produced and developed by University of Alabama students as a senior project. Episodes will air online. 

We are asking for video submissions via e-mail. These should contain a full-length shot of the auditionee, her name, age, location and a 30 second monologue. No pressure! We just want to see what you can do. iPhone footage is completely acceptable. 

Description of Role(s) Available (age, gender, body type, ethnicity, etc.):
Natalie (50s)
Headstrong, opinionated, stubborn. She always has her reading glasses available on the top of her head. Her appearance contrasted with the rest of the group in that she is darker and less together. She typically wears long, loose fabrics and scarves. She absolutely cannot knit. 

Beth (50s) 
Kind, warm, and friendly. She is always available to help people and has a deep rooted interest in self-improvement. This puts her out of step with the bigotry of the others in the group. She is the only one who can knit, and despite being used for this skill, she maintains her kindness. 

Grace (50s) 
Loud talker, absurd, and hobby driven. She loves to talk and tell stories. She jumps from obsession to obsession.

Birdie (50s) 
Kind, soft, and maternal. She wears long dresses, glasses, and her hair in a bun. She looks like a wise, elegant bird. She is an extremely accommodating hostess. 

Pam (50s) 
Loud, opinionated, and constantly aggravated that she is being pushed out of her daughter’s life. She is overbearing and pissed most of the time.

Helen (50s) 
Helen is an eccentric woman that is constantly interested in the antithesis of Beth. She looks to cut corners in the name of self-betterment. She cannot knit and she can’t count. She is stubborn like the other women, but she is quieter about it. Her and Natalie have formed quite a duo. 

Desired Traits of Auditionees (prior experience, acting/singing/dance training, dialects, other):
A willingness to have fun and work hard!

Casting Call for Wrestling-Related Webseries

 

Beyond Ringside, a six-episode dramatic webseries that explores how southern professional wrestling promoters could have reacted to the national expansion of WWE in the 1980s, is looking for actors to join its cast. The series focuses on the conflict between various promoters and their star wrestlers as they seek to find a way to protect their interests as the industry changes around them. Think professional wrestling meets Game of Thrones.

 

Casting will be completed by Friday, Feb. 17, 2017, while shooting is set for March 19 & 26 in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, with release on YouTube and Vimeo set for June 2017. Actors cast will receive a credit and DVD copy of the finished webseries as compensation. The parts marked ** are considered physically demanding (fight scenes, etc. However, no actual wrestling will take place in the series. The series contains adult language, situations and violence).

 

Please email mathews.freelance@gmail.com if you are interested in being cast, with ‘CASTING’ in the subject line. While experience is ALWAYS welcome, no acting experience is necessary, but enthusiasm and and a good attitude is.
