Casting Call for a Short Feature Film

Character Description:

Cosette Cruz:
She is a 16-year old freshman studying at a private school in the urban area. She is also a member of the school soccer team. She aside from sports, she trained herself to become a pseudo-homemaker, cooking dishes, washing clothes, and doing anything that is required by her father and younger brother. She had become the mother figure for the family, after her mother passed away. She is a bubbly girl, and always finds ways to keep herself and the people around her happy.

Bernardo Cruz:
Bernardo Cruz is Cosette's father. He is 42 years old, and due to an accident years ago, he was blinded. He is physically weak, as he always needs a helping hand with normal, day-to-day practices such as preparing coffee and getting things. He is also emotionally fragile, after the death of his wife. Bernardo is close to his daughter most especially because he sees her wife in her, the soccer player he fell in love with during his own college days. He is very supportive of her choices in life.

Allan Alimagno:
Allan is Cosette's soccer coach. He is the typical coach that one would see on TV: he is 35 years old, always wear dry fit sports clothing and a hat, and has a toned body. He makes his team work very hard, pushing them to the limit as much as possible. He plays favoritism among his team players, and in turn ignores Cosette. He believes that although her skill in the sport landed her a spot within the team, she is not at par with the other star players. He has a very short patience and is fickle-minded.

We are also looking for people who are willing to volunteer and be a part of the production: actor extras, set designers, production assistants, musicians, make-up artists, etc. 

If interested submit resume or a contact us

The Cost of Being a Talent

Being an on-camera talent or a model can be lucrative. But this is a highly competitive industry, so you may not always get that gig that can support you till your next booking.

So rule number #1 Never Leave your Day Job. Make adjustments, file proper absent or vacation leaves from work. Make sure you keep a monthly salary going.

#2 Have a Fall back. A business you can earn from while you go through all these castings.

#3 Learn to Save. It helps to have money in the bank. Minsan antagal makuha ang TF. If the gig is not "Pay After" you have to wait a week to a few months until a check is released for you. Always follow-up with your Agent why this is happening and when will you receive the TF?  

Kung aasa ka sa casting or bookings as your main source of income, you will easily burn yourself out and get frustrated. You have to be realistic about your expectations and learn to save whatever you earn from your bookings and gigs.

So Moms, please don't burn out your kids by making them your sole breadwinners in the family ;) That's too much responsibility at an early age. Bata pa lang, kayod kabayo na, kawawa naman. The child has to have his heart in this, kusa sa kanya at gusto talaga niya maging artista :)

If you snag a Lead Role, you have enough money to sustain you for 6 months at least. But if you keep getting cast as a "backgrounder" or an extra, you have to work harder to keep yourself financially afloat.

So balik tayu sa Cost: How much do I have to shell out as a talent to get my career going?

Umpisa pa lang, keep tabs of your expenses. Things you will regularly spend for are: pamasahe, text/load, clothes, makeovers, setcards (if you are freelance), print-outs & photocopies, etc.

Do I Need to be Living in Manila to become a Model, Actor,Talent?

A resounding YES.

The reasons are logistical, all casting agencies and ad agencies are in Manila. All the industry people are here. There maybe some gigs in the provinces, but most likely these are not big accounts.

If you're living in the island-type provinces (Palawan, Romblon, Iloilo, Cebu) and you're seriously considering an entertainment career consider moving to Manila. Give it a year of endless casting calls to finally see some results. Things don't happen overnight unless you're that lucky bastard with that exceptional talent or beauty. Those living in Luzon are quite lucky. There are talents as far as Ilocos, Baguio and Quezon province who would commute and endure long bus rides just to go to casting calls.

What Happens During Casting?

So what happens after the queue?

If its your first time at a casting call, relax, its fairly easy. Your time at the dentist is far worse.

When the Caster finally calls your name:

1. Your Name-Puhunan mo. They will ask you to stand in front of the camera with a clapper/ID (To identify you when they finally edit the casting tape). They will ask you to state your name, age and other info which could be your vital stats, last TVC project, skills, agency etc.

2. Your Profile The caster will ask you to turn sideways to get a profile shot of you and you will then be ask to face the camera and smile. The purpose of the profile shot is to see if you look pleasant on cam; To see your best side. The camera can definitely change the way someone looks on screen. There are some talents who are surprisingly prettier on cam than in person. After the profile shots are out of the way. They may ask you to act out certain scenarios based on their casting brief.

3. Be Ready to Act. So let loose, this is not a good time to be shy. This is the part where you make it or break it.

The casting director may ask you to say lines from their script and under their direction, they will motivate you to get the scene right. They may even let you try to act it out in different ways. Same lines but with different emotions, inflections and tone. This is just to test your acting range.
They will most likely choose your best bit from the lot.

They may ask you to sing or dance (which would have been stated in the casting call sent to your agent) So be prepared with your music CD and belt out a tune or dance away.

Sometimes it can be as simple as asking you to drink from a glass and pretend how refreshed you feel after drinking this so and so product. From there, they will gauge you based on your facial expressions. 

They may ask you to say 'Masarap' or Yummy if its a food product. They may even ask you to look directly ino the camera and talk- convince people to try said product. So be creative if you want to adlib. Always listen to the caster's directions. Some casters bite, so don't piss them off and don't waste their time (hwag kang mag inarte na you can't do this habang nagro-roll ang tape), don't be so sloooow in trying to get a feel of what they want, show them your quick to catch on (listo ka, smart ka, bibo ka), know which is your camera left and camera right- these simple things. Because if you can't follow simple directions and you're difficult to handle, they easily get it that the TVC director will have a hard time with you on set. And every minute in the production set is gold. Parang metro ng taxi yan, may schedule pag grind and the producer can't afford setbacks if she/he wants to stay on budget.

Anyways, GOODLUCK! There's always room for everyone and there's a great variety of roles to fill. Your face may actually represent something- an idea, a character, a philosophy, an agenda that suits a brand. 

The Long Line at Casting Calls

Going to castings and trying to break into commercials is not all glam, but surprisingly grunt work.

Assuming you have an agent and they ask you to show up at a casting. The first thing you'll be subjected to is the Queue. Ang mahabang pila sa casting ay mahaba pa sa pila ng MRT Ayala at 6pm. This is the dreaded long line you have to sit through with other people far beautiful, extra talented or simply taller than you. Breathe lang. Because at casting its not always about looks, there is always room for the equally talented with average looks.

Pag may tiyaga, may nilaga. You will have to wait in line sometimes all day to get your VTR done. The VTR only takes  a few minutes, so give it your best talaga. Leave a good impression and follow their directions. Be interesting. But NOT over the top UNLESS the casting director asks you to act that way.

My VTR took far longer than most. If the caster wants you to act your ass off! doing scenes, throwing lines, smiling like crazy in front of the cam. Lucky you, it means sulit pagpila mo. You got some extra attention than most. But even that, won't guarantee you anything. It all boils down to if you fit the role and  if you embody their brand - if your face, overall look and persona - can get the client to like you. 

The client is tops. They have the final say in everything. But not without the influence or recommendation of the casting director or TVC director itself. These key people can influence a client's decision to consider you. Kaya if you are around their presence or within earshot, please behave well. Maging magalang po tayu. Meaning don't throw a fit, don't pull some diva attitude, don't say nasty remarks about other people or talents. Remember such impressions last forever.
