We are pleased to announce things are progressing on the new project we are producing with Whatsabudget Films, Conversations with Killers. This is our first official feature length film, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Rob, our director, and the writer/director of the film recently posted about this on WABF’s Facebook page with exciting news.
We officially have a venue to hold auditions (thanks to Betsy at Attitudes and Camille Loftin of Sansara), and will be doing so Saturday, February 9th (from 5-8pm) & Sunday, February 10th (3-6pm) at Attitudes Dance Studio on N. Hancock in Colorado Springs. Times are tentative and we will announce any changes.
Overall, there are 18 main roles, and 8 sides with very minimal lines. That is still quite a lot of roles to fill. 3 of the main roles are not assigned a gender and could be played by anyone. The roles of Osmond & Benson in the Prologue, as well as the role of Madsen in Chapter 2 could be cast either way.
Beyond those 3 unassigned roles, we have 8 female lead roles (two of which we have already cast) and 7 male lead roles.
