A Texas casting agency is searching for central Texas girls, age 12-14, to play lead and supporting roles in an upcoming feature film.
A representative from Vickey Boone Casting said they are looking for young teenage girls who are “strong spirited, rough and tumble, creative, impulsive and independent.”
“Previous acting experience is not required,” said Vickey Boone. “We are looking for real middle school girls so this is a great opportunity for girls with a wide variety of experiences. If cast, girls will be paid on the level of professional actors.”
The film, "BULL", has received support from The Sundance Institute, which includes Screenwriter’s Lab, Directors Lab, Producers Fellowship and Catalyst Program. It is written and directed by Annie Silverstein and produced by Monique Walton. As a result of the two’s work on the short film "SKUNK," which won first prize at Cannes-Cinéfondation in 2014, "BULL" will premiere at the next Cannes International Film Festival.
The open casting call will take place Saturday, Sept. 30th, at Austin Studios, Red Building, 1901 E. 51st Street, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Girls will be auditioned on a first-come, first served basis. The audition will consist of a short conversation with a member of the casting team and no preparation is necessary.
Interested parties may email a picture in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org, but is not required.
“Being a part of this film will be a wonderful opportunity for a young person. Both Annie Silverstein and Monique Walton are former youth workers, and this deeply influences their approach to working with young people,” Boone said in the release.
Vicky Boone has cast many films including "Where Did You Go, Bernadette?" (starring Cate Blanchette), "The Tree of Life" (starring Brad Pitt) and "Ain’t Them Bodies Saints" (starring Casey Affleck).
