Description:

Scene from Knives Out (2019) (Unpaid) Online and In-Person Auditions Available


Location: Central Austin (UT Campus) Hi, my name is Garrett! I’m a junior in the UT RTF program and I’m casting for a scene from Knives Out for an in-class performance in my Directing Workshop. This will involve a performance and workshop with a class of fellow student directors, many of whom are and will be actively producing, directing, and casting for films. I will also be filming this scene after the in-class performance and editing it to create a new version of the scene with this new performance. Please email headshot, resume, and any questions to garrettzartman@gmail.com.


Audition Times: Once you have emailed with the required materials, you will be sent the script sides for the audition and a link to sign up for a slot. In-person auditions are Friday 10/14 from 10am-1pm at the Moody College of Communication (exact room location to be sent in follow-up email). Zoom auditions will be scheduled for Saturday 10/15 from 1pm-4pm, but additional times may be accomodated. Though memorization is not expected, please read through the sides before the audition. As well, please refrain from watching the scene from the completed film Knives Out. This project is intended to create an original telling of the scene both on the actors’ and director’s ends.
