A GIRL between the ages of 10 and 13; CAUCASIAN, BLONDE. "Gretel" type character.
PLEASE make sure you match the above description, or email me first to see if an exception can be made.
We will be holding auditions:
SUNDAY OCTOBER 13
11am - 5pm
AT: CHIOPOLIS ENTERTAINMENT
2739 West North Avenue
Chicago, IL 60647

for a map of their location.
If you do submit your photo/information to us online, please also bring them with you to the audition.
"The Trees" is a dark, fairy tale about two missing children and their days in the dark forest, and a detective that is obsessed with finding them. There is a grandmother/witch character that lures the children deeper and deeper into the forest.
The girl should be able to handle filming in the woods and not be afraid of the dark, as a fair amount of the scenes take place at dusk.
She will be working with animated CGI elements, as well as live action. So previous blue/green screen experience is a plus. The ability to act/react to things that aren't really there is crucial.
Please be prepared with a scene or monologue, NO LONGER THAN 3 MINUTES and NO SHORTER THAN 30 SECONDS! The time limit is very important because we have a lot of children to see.
Also please bring HEAD SHOT, CONTACT NUMBER, and resume or a list of any applicable work experience to the audition. Previous experience is great, but not a requirement, we will consider all children with talent.
Parents are, of course, welcome on location at any time. And we will work around your schedules.
For the purpose of the actual audition we would like the parents to wait just outside of the room, if at all possible.
If you have any further questions you may email me directly at:
Anyone cast will receive film credit and a copy of the finished film as payment.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to seeing you.
Kay - PA "The Trees".
