Exile Movies and TSL Productions are looking for extras for the feature film "smalltown" 


Looking for women 18 - 50, all types, for walk-on roles in the film smalltown.


This is not your typical walk-on part.  You will be heavily featured in the film and may be asked to say a line, beat somebody up, flirt with the camera or have a dramatic death scene. You will be playing a prostitute and should feel comfortable wearing the appropriate costume. 


This is for an independent film and is not exploitative.  (In other words, although the film deals with sensitive matters, this is a very safe and comfortable working environment and you will be treated with respect and not asked to do anything that makes you remotely uncomfortable).


The scenes will be shot on Sunday April 17th and Monday April 18th Women are needed for either, or preferably, both days. 


Also looking for men 35 -55.


And young men 18 - 35 to play crackheads.


This is unpaid other than copy, credit and food.  It will be good fun.

FirstWorks announces:

PIXILERATIONS [v.8] Call For Works

Deadline extended to April 19th!


new media fringe festival @ FirstWorks 

September 22-October 2, 2011
in Providence, Rhode Island


PIXILERATIONS [v.8] is a new media festival in Providence, Rhode Island (USA) that investigates the state of new media arts through installations, performances and film/video screenings. It is part of the larger FirstWorks Festival, a multidimensional performing arts festival in Providence each fall. Pixilerations is produced by FirstWorks in collaboration with the Rhode Island School of Design(RISD), Brown University, and the City of Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism. Now in its eighth year, Pixilerations is one of the foremost venues for new media artwork in New England. 




In an era of Facebook/Twitter-inflamed revolutions, biotechnology ethics wars, and YouTube-generated museum exhibitions, this year's festival seeks to examine the question "Where - and what - is New Media Art today?" New Media art traditionally held a role at the intersections of art, science, technology and social realms, yet artists who do not identify as New Media artists now make free use of the same tools as video game programmers, robotics engineers, and DJs. Pixilerations [v.8] seeks work that broadly explores these identity questions of art/not art, new/old.  


We invite artists, musicians, performers, film/video makers, and new media practitioners to submit work.

To submit work, please .

"The Joy of Sox"
Hot off the presses: PBS's main distributor has just agreed to put "The Joy of Sox: Weird Science and the Power of Intention" in their Spring catalog!  That's where affiliate stations go to fill their schedules. So we're in - if we can finish the film!  This is where you can help.  We hit the 50% funded mark, but we still need your help to raise the remaining 50% of our goal.  Tell your family, friends, Red Sox Nation about the film.  Every donation is rewarded, and you can get your name in the credits and get some really cool stuff.  We greatly appreciate your help and support in getting this film out to the masses.

Upcoming Class-Auditioning and Acting in Front of the Camera with Carolyn Pickman - starting next week!



Tuesdays, April 19- May 10, 2011

6:30 - 9:00

  RIFC, 172 Exchange St. Pawtucket
3rd floor


Instructor Carolyn Pickman

Guest Instructor Michael Corrente


Price:  $209

Description This course addresses the question, "How do I give an exceptional audition?"



Get the call back, book the job - or just learn to work the camera like a pro. Practice and insightful coaching are the keys to improving your ability to work with the camera, and your comfort with it.

Carolyn Pickman brings actual audition material from television commercials, corporate videos, and film scripts. Participants will be videotaped in a mock audition setting at each class. Students will review the videos and learn to prepare, and adjust their performances for the camera, take direction, and learn tricks of the trade - both in auditioning successfully, and in effectively conveying character and presence through the lens of the camera.

Carolyn walks you through auditioning step-by-step, pointing out the pitfalls to avoid and giving an insider's view on what industry pros look for. Students are welcome to repeat this course - different material is always added.
