Planet M Productions' first project is becoming a reality! Casting has taken place and we have come up with the final selection of people. We haven't decided on their roles yet... read on to find out why!
The number of CVs and headshots for our 4 roles was really encouraging! Our Producer Kat sifted through them with Director Stu and they identified the ones that they wanted to meet with.
Two days of casting were planned; with each day dedicated to a couple of the characters. It was decided this would allow us to check out the chemistry and for some people to audition for more than one role.
The second set of auditions was recorded to allow us to check out how everyone appeared on camera as well as live.
We're getting really excited, we have ended up with more than enough people because the quality of actors was very encouraging. We had a mixture of auditions from within the community and also established actors.
So where have we got to so far? Three days of casting; has resulted in us choosing this smiley lot for our cast! Our initial script had 4 characters... yep there are 7 people in the picture. Basically we loved the chemistry of them all and so Katie's new challenge is to write in extra characters.
Our next challenge is to start recruiting extras! If you want to be a part of this then you can!
