Casting Call for Feature Film adaptation of Hamlet
Paid Gig - to be determined, small but something.
Auditions to be held in the next few weeks.

This feature film is a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Our adaptation will be full of action and suspense.
It will be stylish and creative.

The goal of the film is to push our creative limits within our limited resources of time and money.
The goal of the project will be a feature film that can and will win festivals, lead to successful sales and distribution, and serve as a launching pad to the next level of bigger and better things.

We are looking for strong dramatic improvisors.
We are looking for actors that are collaborators.  
We are looking for people with a good and professional attitude, high level of craft, that are looking to make the leap to the next level.

We want to provide a safe, honest environment for our actors and crew to do their best, to be listened to, to learn, and to grow.  Ultimately, we want to create the best film possible.  And we know that we have the technical and creative capability from the film side.  Let’s work together to
