Rock & Shock, Background Casting, and Volunteers

 September 6 2012
Background Casting Call

Hallmark Hall of Fame's "The Makeover" is shooting from September through October in Boston, MA and it's missing something.  That something is your genuine New England face.

LDI Casting is holding an online casting call for Background Performers to which both union and non-union actors are eligible and encouraged to submit.  To be considered, LDI requires:

1. current candid photo
2. headshot (if you have one)
3. height
4. age (if you are a minor)

Send your info to: hallmark.ldi@gmail.com
Rock and Shock

Rock and Shock is New England's largest gathering of horror and extreme music fans.  Know what that means?  It means that the 6th annual Rock and Shock Film Festival is a fantastic opportunity to screen your newest horror shorts and features in front of enthusiastic audiences.    
The event takes place October 12 - 14 in Worcester MA, and Josh and Ric of the Arkham Film Society are personally screening all entries in order to determine the ideal horror line-up. 

To submit your film to this year's convention, head on over to the website and download the submission form.  The deadline is September 12, so don't delay.

Running from September 28 - 30, the PFF is now in its 13th year and compliments each screening with a combination of beer, music and T-shirts.

Cinematographer Needed

"World's Worst Director" is not the story of Uwe Boll
In fact, it's a mockumentary web series in its second season and it's looking for a cinematographer.  Ideally, one with their own camera.    
The position is unpaid and filming will take place in Barrington RI.  There's a promo shoot on September 9th, and then 14-15 production days on weekends from October through December.

To learn about the show, check out the webpage
  or shoot an email to Seth at
with any questions.
