Looking for some talented individuals to act in a new feature film we're filming in Sacramento. 3 guys. 1 girl. 25-35 years of age. Please contact me if interested. We're trying to put together a formal casting call.

Hello from New Jersey!

Many of your casting calls resonate with me .. I am in the Garden State (NJ) very close to Manhattan.

Character Bio.

Samantha: aka, Kristin Bell, early to mid 30’s. Blond, sleek, blue eyes, professionally dressed courter all the well. Her main issue is that she left corporate unwillingly and was laid off. She was unemployed and desperate to take the current job. Her previous career was high-end. Not only is this a step down, but a horrific experience daily compared to her former corporate life. Samantha’s facial expressions make up for lack of dialogue.

Kiki: early to mid-30’s aka, America Ferrera, Latina, long hair exotic eyes, beautiful.      This is a career job for her – must appear slightly quiet and sleep at all times    with an ongoing Zen support for Sam.

Mad mike, a.k.a., Van Diesel look alike or my evil stepbrother I wrote this about. Muscle based and pissed 24-7 military reject or pissed off and thin. Both are pissed.

Casey; moron, 25 -30, Chris rock meets Snoop Dog, Dreadlocks/curly fro and doesn’t give a shit. Casey’s main concern is not anything related to his job.

Dave Wilson; mid 40’s, slimeball Michael Scott from the office x 10, nice suit, doesn’t care. Slime ball. You hate this guy but want to party with him at strip clubs.

Hi, Everyone.

First, I'm seeking a male lead for a short film I'm producing, shooting in Sac July 28 & 29. Email your headshot, res, reel to me!

Second, we are also looking for Extras for our shoot July 29 in downtown Sac. Please tell all your friends to go here for details. We need LOTS of extras so have them invite all their friends too. Thanks!

Kaira - send me your casting notice to and I'll put it in my next newsletter.

Within the past month or so I've been fortunate and honored to have a number of writers entrust me with their work.  So, just a shout out to: Lew Osteen, Christine Mitchell, Suzanne Gill, Theresa Elliot, and Floyd Harden.  Thanks so much for giving me the chance to offer you my help.  I've been very impressed with all of the work and I've been delighted that two of "my" writers have recently won festivals with their work and a third has just had a script requested by a producer in L.A. 

If there's anyone else out there who would like my help, call me or shoot me an e-mail:  916-599-3486 or


I'm open for business.  :-)


Warm regards to all,
