Project: NON SCRIPTED - NETFLIX'S "THE CIRCLE"

The Circle is an innovative popularity game inspired by the experience of using social media. Since launching the show in September, the UK version has fascinated audiences and sparked conversations around the country. Now Netflix is bringing the show to the US! (The show will still be filmed in London, just with a US cast. Yay for free vacations!) 

Contestants live in separate apartments in a single building and do not meet face-to-face during the competition. They communicate through a special voice-activated social media platform called The Circle and rank each other frequently. Unpopular players are “blocked” and ultimately the most popular player wins a big cash prize. Since they only know each other through their online dialogue and profiles, players can choose whether to present a true or fictional version of themselves. It’s a game exploring questions of honesty and trust when people can’t see each other in the flesh.

Project: Below the Surface

UT student and Director, Jonathon Broughton, is casting for a short film project for a UT class. After we receive your headshot we will send you a scene and request that you submit a video audition. This short is mostly non-dialogue so in-person auditions felt unnecessary. Please send your headshots by FRIDAY, MARCH 29TH. We are trying to get casted ASAP because we are planning to shoot around mid-April (still working on exact shoot dates). This short film will be a great experience for any up and coming actors.

Project: Painted Blue

An animated short film project at the University of Utah is looking for voice talent for one line of dialogue. $10 will be paid to whichever actor's file is chosen.

This story is set in the live action world, which will be filmed in the style of stop-motion. The context: When a painter finishes a painting of her original character, a cartoon medieval jester (animated and painted on traditional cels), he comes to life and emerges out of the painting. They spend the day with each other, and the Painter is overjoyed to have her character be alive and real. The Jester reacts to all the modern technology and displays the quirky, flexible physique of a true entertainer. At the end of the day, the Jester realizes that his color is fading away and that he has to return to his painting. In the end, the Painter decides to paint herself as a character to forever give him company. She decides to settle on her own creativity and imagination to provide enough joy in her life.

A short original rock musical, written by Hannah Heydinger, Story and Direction by Quinn Kealey, Production by Agustin Navarro, and original songs by Matt Erlandson of Austin rock band "Telecom".

Charlie is a high school senior and wants nothing more than to impress the lead singer of his older brother’s rock band, Margot. Unfortunately, Charlie is awkward, untalented, and several years younger than she is. Deciding he needs divine intervention to solve his problem, Charlie calls upon the God of rock and roll to make him a musician worthy of Margot’s affection. But in exchange for his newfound abilities to rock out on the guitar, Charlie has to give up his voice.
