The following are speaking roles and paid positions:

Male Office worker (20-30) Full Day $300.

*The main actor has already been cast, the supporting cast is being built around his look, so a headshot is required to greenlight an audition appointment.

“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.

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