Special Notes for Potential Cast/Crew: Hi,
I'm Greg Mansur, Professor of film at TCU. My Cinematography class is making this film. We will be shooting Wednesday nights, from 6-9, during the weeks of late February, March, and April. We are filming at TCU, in the Moudy building, Fort Wort. The audition will be February 23, 2-8pm, in Dallas, at Nancy Chartiers Action Studios (it is off of Central Expressway and Royal). Please bring a headshot. We will be putting everyone on tape. Since the film is a somewhat dystopian projection into the future any wardrobe with a Hunger Games look would be great, but not necessary.
