Bree, thanks so much for announcing the casting call! I went on Thursday and we were told that 600 showed up at the Stonington casting call.

What was the Thursday call like?

I saw about 50 people when I went there in the morning. All we did was talk to the casting director for a minute when handing in a form that asked for our height and weight and if we had any props we could bring--like a dog! I hope a beagle/basset hound is just what they were looking for (because I couldn't tell if I had the "look" they wanted).

Do you think it would be too pusy if I e-mailed the casting director my youtube video showing my hound's star-like qualities? If curious yourself, see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGX8jPMRp5M&NR=1

Patch is curious. Has anyone who went to the casting call for Great Hope Springs heard from the casting agent yet?
Lisa Saunders September 23, 2011 at 12:57 PM
Have they begun filming yet? I never did hear from the casting agency--guess I didn't have "the look!"
Bree Shirvell September 23, 2011 at 04:09 PM
Filming is suppose to begin next week. On Wednesday I think. I believe all the casting calls went out last week.
