Already having cast area TV and commercial productions over her first few months open for business, Hibbs’ local casting co., 1 Good Casting is ready to roll on booking New Mexico talent for statewide and cross state jobs.

With long standing ties in both Los Angeles and greater Arizona production, New Mexico stands to gain work for talent in those pools through Hibbs’ network of contacts and professional history.

Hit Indie Filmmakers Casting new Project in New Mexico

Posted by on May 16, 2013 | Comments Off

NMFilm Abe Makes a Movie by Ryan Turri Matt Peterson

Sag, Aftra & Non Union Feature Film, Casting Call May 20th, 2013

The comedy, “Abe Makes A Movie” is currently casting lead roles in this funny film about an underachieving want-to-be filmmaker who assembles a ragtag crew of misfits to help make a movie and enter it into a local film festival in hopes of winning his ex girlfriend back. Starring Matt Peterson (The Bigfoot Election).

This will be a Sag Ultra-Low Budget film shooting early to late fall 2013 in Albuquerque, NM.

Producer/Director: Ryan Turri
Written by: Matt Peterson and Ryan Turri

Please respond to abesmovie@gmail.com

Roles
Sarah
Female 20-35, caucasian
Abe’s long time best friend. Dry sense of humor and witty. Sweet. Smart. Thinks Abe is great. Almost like a sister to Abe.

Jethro
Male 50-70, Caucasian
Pyrotechnics guy. Gruff on the outside but very like-able once you get to know him. Served in the reserves and never saw any action, though he would lead you to believe otherwise. Jack of all trades, master of none. Loyal follower of Abe. Big hearted.

Marla
Female 60-80, Caucasian
Old starlet. Been in 135 movies, but never starred in a single one. Worldly seasoned. Has had several marriages and one daughter. Single now, and lives in the moment. Spent some time in Toas “finding herself” through the guidance of a guru.

Carl
Male 50-68 Caucasian
Abe’s stepfather. Classic American-old school dad who believes in hard work and earning an honest dollar… but plays the lottery religiously. A constant skeptic. Hard on Abe. Believes his way is the right way. Likes to prove his point to anyone who will listen. Doesn’t trust anyone who isn’t American or American made. Grew up in a small town, had his aspirations crushed early in life, gave up on his bowling career and settled for a 9-5 job spending his lunch hour talking sports and how once he was a big deal.

Dirk
Male 25-37 Caucasian
Napoleon complex. Swarmy. Sarcastic. Classic Bro. Uses the term “Bro” and “Brah” and “YOLO”. Thinks he’s hot shit. Classic wannabe filmmaker, wears the right filmmaker clothes, knows the right filmmaking terms and tells everyone about it. Won the 168 hour film festival the previous year. Creates his own handshakes.

“Family Band” Film Auditions

Posted by on February 29, 2012 | 2 comments
AuditionsCastingFilmNMSanta Fe

Feature film holding open auditions Friday & Saturday, March 2 & 3 in Santa Fe, NM for Summer 2012 tri-state (CA, NV, NM) shoot.

High concept description: Glee meets The Partridge Family, with a side of The Bangles.

E-mail nmcastingcall@gmail.com for additional information.

From Michael filmmaker John Gabriel:

Working Title: “Family Bands”

Description: Family members find themselves in conflict over the younger generation’s success as a family band – the same kinds of conflict that broke up their parents’ famous rock band 20 years before. The most painful thing, though, is that some of the mothers and some of their daughters are in a serious dispute that may threaten their relationships. Can all of the conflict be resolved before not only the family band but the amilies themselves are destroyed?

Theme: Real love and compassionate communication overcome.

It’s a drama with a good portion of music and a little comedy to lighten the mood now and then.

The youth band sings and plays a variety of types of music. There are sub-groups that specialize in one particular type of music (pop, rock, blues, country, folk, musical theater). The parents’ band sang ‘80s rock in the style of The Bangles, Fleetwood Mac, The Go-Go’s, The Pretenders, Pat Benatar, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Debbie Gibson, etc. The youngest mom’s solo act also performs a variety of types of music. The grandparents’ band performed folk/country music.

Multi-award winning singer-songwriter-actress Sarah Lonsert has the lead younger generation role if it works out for her to take it. Sarah wrote and sang the theme song (“I Will Rise”) for Michael John Gabriel’s short film “High Casting” and played a small role in the movie. “I Will Rise” has gone on to win the Director’s Award in the Nashville International Song and Lyric Contest. She was recently on the ballot for 8 Grammy Awards. You can hear Sarah sing many of her songs on YouTube.com, ReverbNation.com, and MySpace.com. Here’s a song that demonstrates some of what Sarah can do with her voice as well as showing some of her acting ability. And here’s the one she wrote for my film.

Playing one of the 10-11 year olds will be the amazing young guitarist Zack Quintana. Here he is.

Playing the youngest brother in the older generation will be Jono Manson who is also the Music Producer for the film. See Jono’s bio here and listen to one of his songs here.

Playing the Family Counselor will be Michael John Gabriel.

Most other roles are still open. We are hoping to sign at least 2 well-known actors to the cast.

Most of this movie will be shot in Los Angeles. Some scenes will be shot in Santa Fe and one or two scenes will be shot in Las Vegas.

We’ll shoot it in summer, 2012, or as soon as we have the financing, whichever comes later.

SAG Ultra-Low Budget agreement, which allows us to mix SAG actors with non-SAG actors. Pending financing, the agreement may be upgraded.

Rate/pay: Depends on role and financing. We won’t start shooting until financing is in place. All speaking actors will be paid.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:
We are now auditioning for actors, who will be able to play the following characters in July, 2012:
