Mixing is well underway now for When We Were Two, but a small project has arisen as part of ADPP's Scriptwriting Competition, so here is a speedy casting call:
Deadline: Saturday 2nd June 2018
For the Audio Drama Production Podcast's Scriptwriting Competition 2018 I am excited to be producing, along with the sound designer Steve Blizin, "Hell Is For Other People" by Leslie McMurtry.
It's an atmospheric horror, where something just not quite right is going on... a wonderful script that should be enormous fun to perform in. The characters get to go through quite a journey of emotions as they begin to realise, too late, what is happening.
It is not a paid project, but is also short - running time just under 10 minutes in total, so it won't be a huge commitment. It will form part of the Competition festival, and will be
aired via The Audio Drama Network.
We're looking for the following parts. Do have lots of fun with them - further instructions on sound files and so on below:
RICKY PADILLA (M) 30s, cool, irresponsible
This is Central—could be dangerous, right,
people on the streets and crap.
That’s why they got the door security, right?
(talking about the future)Yeah, dude. Moving to LA. Playing in the clubs.
Wowowwowowowowwww (mimics playing electric guitar)
(Angry and starting to properly panic)
Hey, lady, are you deaf? Stop this right now!
SYBIL FELDMAN (F) 20s, friendly, jumpy
Oh, come on! Hurry up! I’m parked in the meter. I only put
in enough for fifteen minutes.
Thailand. I been planning it for a long time. Surfing, snorkelling,
ripping off tourists, living cheap. Paradise.
SYBIL screams in exasperation
SYBIL. (sobbing) I want my mom!
RECEPTIONIST (F), any age, robotic
Come in, we’ll be right with you. If you just sit
in the waiting room, there are magazines and free Wifi. Just
wait for your name to appear on the big TV screen and take
the door on the right
RECEPTIONIST laughs hysterically
MRS VARGAS, (F) elderly
(answering phone) Yes—who’s this?
(cross)And I don’t like people like you, Sybil.
I don’t like them one bit
MAN (M), any age, sounds evil
