Smith Mountain Lake Film Issues Casting Call

Life Out Loud Films has scheduled auditions for “Lake Effects,” the movie my pal Sara Elizabeth Timmins is producing at Smith Mountain Lake. The film’s shooting is scheduled for October at the lake.

“Lake Effects” is a “dramedy,” a movie is about a young woman who returns to her picturesque hometown to attend her estranged father’s funeral. This character struggles to reunite with her family, and rediscovers the magic of the lake along the way.

Auditions for 27 speaking roles will be held in Charlottesville on Sept. 8 and Roanoke Sept. 9. Auditions are by appointmen. To submit for a role in hopes of receiving an appointment, actors should send a photo and resume with their location to casting director, Erica Arvold here with the subject line “SUBMISSION for LAKE EFFECTS local casting for ROLE NAME HERE.”

Applicants should also state which location or date would be more suitable in case you’re chosen. Arvold will accept taped auditions. Eco-Casting (breakdown), Youtube (public), Vimeo (included with password), and any other links that do not require downloading are acceptable. Files that require downloading will be rejected. Arvold asks that applicants slate their name and where they are based at the start (close up) of the audition tape. She would then like the camera to pull back to a full-length shot. Readings should be framed close showing the head and a bit of shoulder. The subject line for these emails should read “Lake Effects VIDEO AUD – (your name here) for (the role here).”

For those less experienced actors, Life Out Loud Films will hold an open call for extras on Sept. 18 at Franklin County High School in Rocky Mount from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
