This Weekend: Auditions, 48 Days Later and Property Sale

 October 19, 2012
CASTING: RIFC's "Misconceptions"

"Misconceptions," the new Rhode Island Film Collaborative production, is looking for its cast.  We will likely be shooting in the Providence area around mid-November. Positions are unpaid but it looks to be a fun project and a great experience for all. We are looking to fill the following roles:

Jay: a man in his thirties, workaholic type 
Elise: housewife in her late twenties; think June Cleaver with an attitude 
Kid: age & gender non-specific; burnout, stoner type 
Chef: forties or older, gender non-specific; hard-boiled, self-employed

Stage fighting/stunt experience preferred, but not necessary.

Auditions will take place at:
RIFC headquarters (175 Main St, Pawtucket)
Saturday, October 20th from 10-2.  

Please bring a head shot and resume.

CASTING: "Donner Party: The Musical" 

"Donner Party: The Musical!" is a comedy musical about the ill-fated Donner Party, who got stranded in the Sierra Nevada on their trip west in the 1840s. The musical focuses on their time stranded in the snow as well as a budding romance between Eliza Donner and James Reed, Jr.

This student film will shoot in mid-January 2013 in Northfield CT, Moultonborough NH and Providence RI. 

Leanna Donner: female, 18-21
James Reed Jr.: male, 21-25
George Donner: male, 50-65
James Reed: male, 45-55

Prepare sixteen bars of a song to be performed a capella.  Sides from the script will be provided.

Auditions will take place at
Rhode Island School of Design Auditorium
Across from RISD Museum, 20 N Main St Providence, RI
October 22 from 3:30 to 5:30pm
(All auditions will be given a specific time within this window)

To reserve an audition slot or for more information about the project, email director/producer Andrew Migliori (amiglior@risd.edu).

48 Days Later

The Providence 48 Hour Film Project simply refuses to die quietly.  Like a zombie crawling out of the mire, it has returned for one last burst of chaos in the form of 48 Days Later.

Many teams continued to develop/edit/fine-tune their films after the conclusion of the 48HFP.  They will be screening their "Final, I Mean It This Time, We Had More Than Enough Time So Seriously This Is The Final Cut" of their films this weekend at The Comedy Connection.
Sunday, October 21, 5pm

Admission is free and you would be supporting local filmmakers and business (there is a bar, after all).  So just go already.  In fact, for $10 you can stick around and see a Comedy Showcase which starts at 8pm.
