Casting Call 1/2

The first casting call was a HUGE success. There were SO many amazing, talented people. I was blown away. I kept having to bite my tongue during auditions to keep from laughing (in a good way; with people, not at them), and yada yada yada, everything still tastes like rubber.
A special thank you to all who made this day rad.
Check out pics here!
If you missed the first call, there's still one more:
SATURDAY THE 24TH, 12PM-2PM, same place- 5th & A Eureka (in the Moore's Sleepworld building)

OPEN CASTING CALL annoucement!

SYNOPSIS: The Making Of is a mockumentary that documents the trials and tribulations of novice producer Tom Banks and his ragtag film crew as they struggle to make a movie. The sole financier of the movie, Tom's uncle Marvin, is a hyper-frugal control freak. Even though his intentions are good, his unexpected budget-cutting ends up crippling the film. As the production spirals ever downward, Tom begins to wonder if his dream will ever be achieved. The Making Of chronicles the making of a movie that never gets made.

This is writer/director Matt St. Charles' second feature. His first, Remote Control Grandpa, is totally awesome and you can check it out at
Also take a look at some of his thoroughly entertaining short films and commercials at this website- especially LOOSE CANNON, a spinoff of one of the characters from The Making Of!

You can also read the blog of The Making Of here! (SO meta!)

The Making Of will be shot in high definition at 24p.
