TV pilot auditions Thursday
KINGMAN - Auditions will be held Thursday for a pilot television series a local filmmaker intends to market to networks and producers.
Elona Roybal, who heads the Kingman Filmmaker's club, is looking for three male actors ages 17 to 25 to fill the roles of "wannabe" gang members and a fourth to play the role of the hero. The pilot will be the first in a series of "true crime" stories told from the perspective of the person being targeted.
While the roles are unpaid, actors will receive a copy of the final cut of the episode, food and their name included in the credits.
"This will be a great way to get exposure and build your resume and can lead to possible paying roles in the future," Roybal said.
Auditions will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday on the Centennial Park racquetball courts at 3333 Harrison Street,
Roybal said actors of all ages and types are also invited to come to the auditions to see if they could fit roles for various other films in the works.
Don't have any experience but still feel bitten by the acting bug? Roybal's got that covered with a special workshop on July 28 called "What to Know as an Actor." The free workshop, which starts at 2 p.m. in conference room B of Hualapai Mountain Medical Center, will cover everything form how to write a resume, how to get the perfect headshot, how to audition, what to expect on set and how to avoid getting scammed.
Roybal has also scheduled a similar workshop covering the basics of filmmaking for Aug. 31.
