Casting Call - Actors Wanted

High Noon Entertainment is casting the following roles for a sizzle reel focusing on the relationship between a bride and her mother as they plan the wedding:

- BRIDE - 20's/30's. Harried bride who is trying to plan her wedding with constant interference from the mother from hell. Must be able to show all facets of emotions in this situation - from determination to trying to cope to extreme agitation. Must also convey that she loves her mother but is about to snap!

This will not be scripted so strong improv experience is a MUST. -

MOTHER - late 40's to early 60's. This is the mother from hell! You want the best for your daughter but on your own terms. You know best how to plan her wedding and you will not give your daughter a moment's peace. Strong willed, opinionated yet you love your daughter.

This will not be scripted so strong improv experience is a MUST.

Shoot will be 1-2 days in late October in Denver.

There is pay.

Please submit headshot, resume and reel to: tseiler@highnoontv.com

 

Careful of a scam

one of our members sent us a warning about a scam...

A Chinese company / scam artist is targeting production companies around the world. Here's a link to a video and blog that describes it: http://www.filmingholidays.com/2012/07/18/beware-b2b-scam-from-china/ According to the posts, these folks are currently very active.

CFVA's STATE of the STATE 2012

State of the State Image

CFVA’s State of the State 2012: Where do we go now that the incentives have passed?

Getting the incentive bill passed was a huge step forward for the Colorado film and video industry, and everybody is curious about what's next.  

Please join us on Wednesday September 19th at the Mayan Theater at 6:30 pm as we dive deeper into the issues facing our state.  While we are eternally grateful to those that helped in getting the bill passed (Film Commissioner Donald Zuckerman can speak to that and what's next) we also recognize that incentives aren't all our industry is and our diverse group of panelists can speak to what impact the incentives will or will not have on their area of expertise...as we discuss the work happening outside of Denver, what is going on in the advertising and commercial markets and how/why a filmmaker would choose to shoot their feature here.   

Come and be a part of this discussion that impacts YOU!  Entrance for this event is free.  Please submit your questions for the panelists to events@cfva.com

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT : Rodney Wilson

Rodney Wilson
This month, CFVA celebrates Rodney Wilson

Last year, producer, screenwriter and Boulderite Rodney Wilson returned home to Colorado after twelve years in LA.  Wilson started in the film industry after many years as a fashion photographer.  Combining his visual acumen with an innate sense for entertainment and storytelling, he directed and produced his first union feature in 1998.  He quickly moved into development with a knack for optioning life-rights and developing true stories working with a laundry-list of Hollywood heavy-hitters.  

 

The multi-talented (and always busy) Wilson also co-owned a casting studio in Beverly Hills, and has landed parts as an actor in television shows and several national commercials.  As a writer, he’s had three screenplays optioned and currently has two in the financing stage of development.

 

He says one of the most impactful moments of his career came after acquiring the life rights to INXS front-man Michael Hutchence.  During conversations with Heath Ledger’s representation to play fellow Australian Hutchence, Heath tragically and eerily died on Michael Hutchence’s birthday.

 

Most recently, Wilson continues in his work behind the scenes, acquiring a Red Scarlet and shooting pilots, short films and commercials, one of which was broadcast nationally.  He has properties consisting of seven feature films, four comic books and over 20 scripted and non-scripted television shows that he is developing.  An investor recently pledged $2 million in financing for one of his feature scripts.
