NYU Webseries Casting

Postby anthonyammo » Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:26 pm

This is a casting call for an NYU / Tisch student project/comedy webseries which will film on April 22 from 2:00-5:00. Call time is 1:30.

We are most looking for auditions for the male roles as we have many people coming in for the Leslie part already. Please e-mail a headshot and resume (or better yet, a video) to TischCastingNYU@gmail.com if interested.

Shooting will be conducted in a professional, climate controlled studio in the Village area. This is a no/low paying job. Food will be provided on shooting day. A copy of the work will be provided. Union actors may audition, but if hired they must sign a payment deferral.

Auditions are being held:
Wednesday, April 17 from 11:00-1:00
Thursday, April 18 from 12:45-2:45 (if there is enough interest)

We will be shooting two episodes of a web series called Reinventing Deweel. The humor is of an absurd nature. It is about recently released mental patient Harold Deweel & his 'journey' to discover who he really is. In every episode he will try some new character trait. Episodes will be very short, in the range of 2 - 3 1/2 minutes.

In the first episode Harold grows a Hitler mustache (despite being part Jewish) & argues with his girlfriend over keeping it (her parents are meeting him for the first time tonight).

In the second episode Harold mistakingly believes that watching UFC gave him an erection. Believing this means he must be gay, he kicks his girlfriend out of their apartment & tries seducing his best friend.

HAROLD DEWEEL (Caucasian/20-30) - is a recently released mental patient, prone to outbursts of rage, though he is not intimidating. He has his own way of seeing the world. *actors reading for Harold may be asked to read for Derrick as well.

LESLIE (Caucasian/20-30) - is Harold's girlfriend. She is a 'normal person' and is trying her best to have a normal life with her psychotic boyfriend, though she is frustrated by him.

DERRICK (20-30) - Harold's best friend. He is a 'normal guy' who often gets caught up in Harold's madness. Because he is more level headed, he tries to reason with Harold.
