Updates on Procedures

We realized today on set that in case of emergency, we have no way of knowing who to contact for you! So . . . starting tomorrow, every time you sign in on set, you will be given an additional piece of paper to fill in besides your voucher. It’s an emergency contact form. This will give us up to date information on who to contact if there is an emergency on set and you are unable to communicate. We will also email it to you nightly as part of your info packet so you can print it off and fill it in ahead of time if you want.

Also, this week we have started using our “In Progress Calendar” on our website. Each day, as we receive information about the upcoming day or days, we will post the information here for you to use. This allows us to provide a link to a google map/directions to the parking as well as update info as soon as we get it. Some days will be password protected. If you are scheduled as background, check the “In Progress Calendar” for the latest information for your scene. If it is password protected, you will receive the password in an email. Each day/scene will be a different password.

We love your feedback! Feel free to email us and let us know your suggestions, comments, or praise! We want to get better and better each day at serving the film industry and helping our awesome background!

Wonder what’s happening?

Wonder what’s happening?

Wonder what’s going on in the casting world? Currently we are in the midst of casting our extras for the first episode of “Dallas!” Woohoo! Also, we are currently in talks about casting extras for a few other projects. We are waiting on firm dates and will let you know as soon as we know something! Meanwhile, we are loving all of the new fall shows that have started on tv and are always looking in the background to see how the background extras are doing! Do you ever get annoyed to see a background extra cross back and forth in the same scene or are you ever impressed with the extras on a show? What new show this year has captured you????

Legend of Love Casting & Filming

Legend of Love Casting & Filming

Today the feature film, “Legend of Love” started filming in and around Shreveport, Louisiana.  The movie is a gripping story of race relations in the United States in the 1890′s written and directed by John Quashie.  It is a SAG ultra low budget movie but it should still gain some attention because of its deeply moving script and awesome actors.  Andrei cast all of the actors for the movie and has had a great time collaborating with John and the producer, Philip Brooks.  It was overwhelming to see such great talent audition and book the roles.  Good luck to the cast and crew of “Legend of Love!”  Thanks for letting Legacy Casting be a part of your production.

Speaking Role Auditions

This past weekend we held auditions for the fifteen speaking roles in Legend of Love.  It was an unbelievable experience.  First of all, to see actor after actor come into the audition room and vulnerably share their craft is always overwhelming.  Second, repeatedly, the performances were so moving . . . even without costumes, lighting, or makeup . . . under the fluorescent lights of the office or in the video tape submissions, you moved us . . . some times to silence, some times to cheers, some times to tears.  It takes incredible dedication to be an actor and to pursue this industry.  You have to be incredibly self aware, sure of yourself and yet humble, and ready to see deep inside yourself, and the part you are playing.  It is one thing to read words on a page, but to understand your character and convey that to an audience in a way that is authentic and believable takes your craft and audience to a different level.  So today we applaud you . . . the actors who work day in and day out, hoping for your break but also committed to growing.  Thank you.

Legacy Casting Update!

I’ve also been approached to possibly cast the principals for a full length film in Shreveport, LA. It’s a non-union film, but it does pay. It’s a great script with very challenging parts for all the actors involved. We’re still in negotiations, and I don’t have more details for you right now. When we do have more details I’ll post it here as well.

Thank You all for your support, we look forward to working you!

Welcome to our new Legacy Casting Blog!

Hello Legacy Casting friends and fans! Welcome to our new Legacy Casting Blog.

You probably know by now that we’re casting the extras for Ryan Glorioso for the new movie Leatherface 3D in Shreveport, Louisiana. It’s part of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. We’ll be casting the Stand Ins, photo doubles as well as the background. We’ll have a meeting with the Director and his 1st and 2nd AD’s in late June. Once we’ve had that meeting we’ll know more specifics, what exact dates the extras scenes will be, how many stand ins we need etc. The filming starts July 18th but that doesn’t mean that extras will be needed that day. So stay tuned here for more details. You can also check out our Facebook page: facebook.com/legacycasting where we’ll be posting more information there as well. If you want to sign up please click on Legacy Actors and follow the instructions. We should have a more in depth sign up form on our site in the Fall.

Thanks so much.

Andrei
