Amy Bohigian of Watershed Productions is looking for people to take part in a new film project.

Open casting call for real people

Amy Bohigian is looking for a select group of individuals to participate in a series of video shoots over the summer.

Amy Bohigian of Watershed Productions, a video production company based in Nelson, is looking for a select group of individuals to participate in a series of video shoots over this coming summer.

Wide Shot Close Up is a new work to be exhibited at Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History opening in November 2014. One part art installation, one part social experiment and one part community development exercise, the project is intended to expose and explore how each of us present our identity to ourselves and to others. It is meant to engage a larger audience about the questions of how people from various backgrounds and beliefs can connect in meaningful ways.

People from all walks of life and of all ages are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming castings calls the week of July 14 in Nelson.  Eight individuals will be chosen to be featured in the video installation and exhibit based on their ability to be authentic on camera. Nothing should be acted and everyone should come dressed as they would on a normal day. There is no need to prepare anything to read, as each person will be directed through a series of on camera exercises. This is not a typical casting call.

The eight individuals who are selected will participate in at least one additional video shoot over the summer and will receive an honorarium. To express interest in attending the casting call and schedule a screen test, please email: info@watershedproductions.ca. You will be sent further information about location and available times.
