Student Films for Red Carpet Film Festival
Freihofer Casting is once again working with the film students at the Moore-Norman Technology Center and will host auditions for all student films that will eventually screen at the Red Carpet Film Festival in early 2017. It is the fourth year the casting office has provided services for the event.
Auditions will be held the evening of Monday, November 14 at The Actor Factory in Norman. All directors for all films will be in attendance at the auditions.
Pay for appearing in a film is a $25 gift card plus a copy of the film for demo reel purposes, and two tickets to the Red Carpet Film Festival in May, where all films will screen. The winning film at the festival will screen at the 2017 deadCenter Film Festival.
"Actors have great experience working with these students," said casting director Chris Freihofer. "It is not only an opportunity for actors to lend their talents to the projects to tomorrow's filmmakers, but they also get great-looking footage for their reels."
Each film shoots for one week, Monday-Friday, during school hours. There is very little if any filming on nights and weekends.
