Sergeant Davis - (30's; mature, rugged, athletic, experienced, commanding attitude)

Private "Sims" Simmons -(early 20's; inexperienced, slightly incompetent)
Private Lee- (20's; athletic, outspoken)
Private Styles (20's; tall; slender; dorky; intelligent)

Please send short bio with head shots; any other shots welcome. Professional photos not necessary. Please no hats or sunglasses in photographs.

Conrad I agree with you - however - SAG requires insurance and it's the insurance that's stopping most of the indie producers - and the UH film school films as well from using SAG talent. Maybe someone reading this can help these producers get insurance so they can use SAG actors?

Anyone looking to film on the Big Island, especially on the west side in Kona?
Comment by Conrad Lihilihi on June 10, 2010 at 7:40pm
i just remembered this and i don't know why i didn't think of this earlier, but in regards to all the filmmakers complaining about not being able to use sag actors because you "can't afford it", if you absolutely INSIST on using SAG actors then there is a way. under the SAG short film agreement, films that are 35min or less with a budget under $50,000 and shoot entirely in the US can defer salaries and provide "copy, credits, and meal" as compensation..this also allows you to distribute your film at film only have to pay the actors their deferred $100/day if the film is bought for distribution beyond the film festival circuit

The 30 minute could be done for a couple of grand. Most of the cost will be from film, rentals, and lighting. There are no special effects or anything. A couple of location shots and mostly dialog. It could also be a student film if they can get the equipment rental free. I'm mostly writer/director, I just shoot because there is no one else in the room.
