Project Title: Untitled
Reading Date: (tentatively Feb 25, 2016 or thereabouts)
Location: UMBRA in Newburgh
The reading is to hear with the script as we are in pre-pre production. The film is tentatively slated to shoot this summer in Newburgh, NY. At this time there is no pay but it is an opportunity to help out early in the process and be seen. We are seeking talent for the reading and test shoots (tentatively for March). This film will likely be SAG low budget (at this point all is pending).
