As always, we will need extras. If you are not interested in a major part you don’t need to audition. However, you need to drop me a line with your name, address, e-mail address and phone number to: Please include "Movie Extra" in the Subject line.

What you need to prepare:
Sign up sheets will be at the front desk. You may bring a copy of your performance resume if you have one. Head shots are not required as auditions will be recorded. Prepare a short monologue from Shakespeare, roughly 1 – 2 minutes in length. Also, be prepared for a cold reading with someone else.

What you should know:
This is an R rated film as it will have graphic violence, as well as provocative and sexual content. This will primarily effect the following roles: Uther, Gorlois, the Young Man Arthur, Ygraine and the Young Lady Morgana. Please be aware of this if you plan to audition for any of these parts. If you would like more background on these or any of the other roles please feel free to contact me.
