There is a bit of controversy on another article on DWN called GOTHAM CITY CASTING CALL. There were some haters, disrespecting the folks over at RRE Productions, Baer Budget Films, and F & F Video Productions. As a curious guy, and an amateur actor I went to the casting call to see what all the fuss is about. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few hundred people show up on a cold Saturday to audition for the various parts available. People of all shapes and sizes showed up. All eager to show off their craft and go for their favorite role. There was even a guy there dressed as the Joker doing splits and jumping around, it was great!
At this point, I would have to say to the cowardly anonymous person playing the role of “cyber troll” was COMPLETELY off base with his silly and sad comments. But, enough of the haters.
I grabbed my release, my sign-up form and my lines. I was ready to go! I sat down and studied my lines before my turn and I got to talking with my fellow actors. There were people from all over New England, New York and as far away as Pennsylvania! There were great people having a great time here. I practiced lines with people as we waited in line.
Once my turn came up, I went in to meet the crew in charge. They were friendly and professional. They gave me a run down of what
they were looking for and what they expected of me. I won’t go into my actual audition, but I will say that I had no regrets.
I would like to thank all of the people involved with the casting call. I had a great time and look forward to see what these guys come up with! A fan film is a great tribute to the DC Comics world.
