    Hello, my name is Barclay, a talented Musician/Producer with Raw acting skills. I have some background in theater, acting, improv and short films. I also done some modeling work.

This is what I can offer to this film. I’m not camera shy nor am I star struck. So I’ll be able to stay focus and on task.

  12. mike wright

    All my life I knew I was destined to get into film, so I studied film production in school. When I followed my dreams and went to CA and failed miserably I thought my chance had passed. This audition is a sign to me that I can still follow my dreams. I have what people call, the every man look. Being Hispanic American and being born in the USA, I talk and act more American but I look Hispanic so I can pass for a variety of ethnicities. I coach high school wrestling and train mma and bjj, so I’m pretty fit and I shape (just put me to the test). I am 5’10 and 200lbs, I am Mike Wright and I can be a fantastic asset and addition to this film in any way or shape. Thank you for your time

  13. Eric Bethune

    My name is Eric Bethune, and I’m a highly motivated person with a great personality. I come from a background of multiple talented family members. It started with my grandfather who was a great musician in his time which later rubbed off on to he’s grandchildren. I was voted best actor in my high school drama class, although that’s been a while that’s something I’ll always cherish. I’m a 40 year old 5’7 175 pound black and Latin male looking for an opportunity to help in anyway I possibly can. If given the chance I’m sure I wouldn’t disappoint. Thank you and God bless.

  14. Priscila Abigahil

    My name is Priscila Abigahil. I’m 14 years old turning 15 this October 5. I’ve been in the highest drama class for 3 years. My teacher Nancy Anaya (Drama teacher at Utterback Middle School) moved me instantly after I performed my first monologue. I’ve been in 5 plays and one short film. My friends say I’m a “Down to do Anything” type of person. I can memorize a script pretty fast.

    My favorite actors:

    Ladies: Chloe Grace Moretz and Melissa McCarthy
    Men: Jake Abel, Logan Lerman and Will Smith


    Height: 5’2
    Weight: 102
    Hair: Medium brown, long, curly/wavy, perfered straightened
    Eye: Brown
    Race: Mexican/American

    Info: I can dance. My mom perfers this talent over all the ones I have ever since she first saw my performance in school about bullying, I have a video. I don’t know if you want to watch it. But dance isn’t my biggest passion. It used to be singing, but I used to be bullied in school so I got insecure. When I started acting in 6th grade it built confidence for acting and dancing, but I’m a mute when it comes to that subject. I’m not that flexible. I can do the Scorpion and the bridge, but I’m working on gymnastics.
    I was never popular in school, but I knew a lot of people. Though it was like they didn’t know me. Drama was always a place to be myself and imagine I’m someone else. My drama teacher says that I sometimes get carried away with my character. I prove her wrong when I’m always the favorite character in our plays. Sometime I would even have a small part like a maid, yet everyone loved me.

    I guess that’s it for now. I mean if you like me and want to get to know me more, I would be more than happy to tell you more about me.

  20. Briah Ann Krueger

    Hello Ladies & Gents!

    I am a very determined eighteen-year-old young lady who is ready to make a mark on camera. I have been involved in choir for eight years, and have been in productions through Theater Arts since the age of seven. Being on stage, or being given a character to portray is what I do best. Some people have Math or Science, some people can rock a Football field or Basketball court, but as for me; I have always felt my confidence soaring on the stage or on camera. If I or my friends and family had to describe me in a single phrase, I believe they would say I am an old soul in a young body. I am in LOVE with everything from Frank Sinatra to The Beatles. I am also a writer of poetry and have had my poems published in four different books.

    I am 5’3, and weigh about 115 lbs. I have brown hair and brown eyes, and I have a few freckles. I do not wear makeup except for foundation, I do not like to wear other products.

    I am a small town Wisconsin gal, but my heart-filled dreams are too big for this little place.
    I look forward to hearing back from you, and I thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Ever since of the age of 5 years old I’ve been in plays. I’m now 17 years old and still participating in plays.


    I played the part of Ebenezer Scrooge way Back in elementary school. At that time someone said to me…..”today Harris School, tomorrow the world.” I’ve been bit by the acting bug every since. I see this as an opportunity to help fulfill my destiny. I am dependable, talented and available. I await my opportunity to audition.

  29. Christian Tyler

    I don’t know if casting for this film is already completed, but there is no reason to not post my information and why I believe I am the best person for this role. If luck is when opportunity meets preparation, I would be considered the epitome of this given this opportunity, because I have prepared myself like an obsessive madman when it comes to acting. I have only been studying the craft for 2 years, but in doing so I believed that I was behind everyone else, and have already worked my way into showing people how good I am, and how good I will be. It’s funny because everyone laughs at you, but sooner or later they will be asking me how I made it. I think it would be pretty cool to say because I believed in myself and my dreams when no one else did, and I got an amazing opportunity in the beginning role of a lifetime. Headshots and resume available upon request. Thank you!
