"Back when there was a good amount of work here (pre-1997), mostly what were called movies-of-the-week (MOWs), even then casting directors turned to L.A. for most roles.  A few local actors got some good roles, but too often they were…"

"Acting jobs are almost always going to be based on auditions, and calls for those will be based on character breakdowns ( we need one female 18-22, two older males, one very tall woman, etc).  Keep your eyes open for casting calls and auditions…"

After over twenty years on the heavy lifting side of the film industry I'm looking at parts that are easier on my back. I've got a bit of writing experience, a lot of computer programming experience and can make a pretty fair coq au vin.

Announding auditions for Papercat Films’ indie short "Skeletons", directed by Kristine Hipps
“Skeletons” is a story about family, devotion, love, art, crime, guilt, bad habits, and the way we cling to our kin like anchors in the ocean of our crazy lives. The film opens at a memorial service for the character of Alex, and is interspersed with flashbacks and snippets of home videos taken over the years.

AUDITIONS: Wednesday October 14th, 7pm – 9pm at the John Hand Theater, Room 206.
Please send photo and resume to

SHOOT DATES: Sunday October 25th, noon to 4pm, and Tuesday October 27th 4pm – 10pm.
Gary Otte will act as DP on the project, which will be shot on Hi-Def DV.
*There will also be a casual, partly-improvised shoot for a “home video” of a Cain family Christmas party to be scheduled in November. The date of this shoot is more flexible since we’ll be filming on a mini-DV camcorder, and can be scheduled around cast members’ conflicts.

Location: The home of Sara and Jeremiah Michael, 5785 S. Lakeview St. in Littleton, 80120

Rehearsal Dates: I am willing to work around actors’ schedules, but the days I have set aside for rehearsals are Sun Oct 18th thru Thurs Oct 22nd, so all actors must have some availability within that time frame.
Info/Conflict sheets will be supplied at auditions.


Holly: 30’s, an artist, single, independent, outspoken and fiercely protective of her siblings.
Tom: brother to Holly and Jill, late 20s, a writer for a hip men’s magazine, a quick-witted cad with a big heart.
Jill: sister to Holly and Tom, 30s, strong in her faith in God, a bit emotionally repressed but extremely kind, intelligent and giving - would give you the shirt off her back, with a small sermon tucked into the pocket.
Alex: Her husband, 40s, a chronic out-of-work alcoholic who has allowed hopelessness to take over, often taking it out on Jill. Killed in a drunk-driving accident, he is presented in the “home videos” section of the film only.
Jean: Their mother, 50s-late 60s, also strong in her faith, kind and loving, a rock to her family
Sam: Their father, 60s – 70s, handsome, with a small-time criminal past and an infectious charm that hides a sociopathic nature
Wanda: Their cousin, 20s, funky, has no reservations about saying the word “dildo” at a memorial service.
Mark: Her boyfriend, 20s-30s
Katy: Alex’s sister, 30s, a small-town woman, remorseful about not being there enough for her brother, feels guilt over his death.
Donna: Alex’s mother, 60s – 70s, a tired woman, stunned and confused over her son’s death.
Friends and Family: Guests at Alex’s memorial service, as well as Christmas party guests in the “home video” portion of the film.

Nelson! Great work in "The White Room"! Saw it at the Mile High Movie Show last night. Didn't see you there. You coming to the CASA thing tomorrow?

Hi Nelson, I'm working on a 50's sci-fi film and am looking for actors..You look like you could play one of our cops...Let me know if interested in learning more... Thanks, Stan

Hey Nelson, thanks for the reply. Since all the roles aren't filled that are in relation to the police scene's, I'm not sure when we'll start shooting them. There's two cops, a chief of Police, some teen-agers, some aliens and a farmer that all interact with the guy I'm thinking about for you. It will hopefully come together quickly but may not be 'til next spring-summer, Right now were working on some scenes with non-recurring characters, So that we'll at least have some stuff in the bag that link scenes together for the main characters.
The 2 cops end up in scenes spanning the entire film. Right now we have a registered treatment, and are finalizing the expanded scripts dialogue. Will re-contact you when that's ready...Thanks again! Best, Stan
