Auditions:

Auditions can currently be scheduled on one of the following days:
Tuesday the 14th, Wednesday the 15th, or Thursday the 16th between 6 and
9 pm. They will be held on the UT college campus. Please e-mail to
schedule a time or if you need to schedule a different time due to lack
of availability on any of these days.

Compensation and Scheduling:

There’s no salary involved, but that includes everyone working on it so
please don’t feel left out.

We will give you a DVD copy of the finished short (should take 1-3
months after the shooting) and can give you more copies, and in various
file formats if you’d like.

The shooting is planned to take 2-3 days on either the weekend of
November 14-16 or November 21-23 (though not every character will need
to be present the whole time except for Mark). There will also be at
least 3 days of rehearsal (at approximately 2-3 hours a piece) though
they won’t be consecutive, rather spread out based on your schedule.
