Thread: How to find actors for a fun causal non-professional short film?

  1. Default How to find actors for a fun causal non-professional short film?

    In college I enjoyed scripting, filming, and editing 3 short films with my Canon XHA1. I do the occasional wedding video with my Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (1080p).

    However, I really enjoy scripting/shooting movies, However, since I do not have my college friends around, it is much harder to film movies.

    I was just wondering how I can find actors (they dont have to be amazing or even very good). I just love crafting stories and filming like some people enjoy writing short stories.

    (youth) clubs, schools, retirement homes, supermarket pinboards. Basically any local community is worth checking out.

    local amateur dramatic societies are a good source of actors though some tend to "project" and can be a bit shouty

    Post a request on local Facebook/Nextdoor etc social media. I'd suggest not invinting them to auditions at your house though! (Well, not as a first step)
