1) Headshot : It can be any current close-up with very little makeup, un-photoshopped, no filters, in focus and hair out of your face.

3) Resume or demo-reel : We're less interested in your history, and more interested in your attitude. What unique qualities do you bring to the party? Do you play well with others?

CASTING CALL

 

Our gracious thanks to you for visiting our casting submission page.

Although we currently work with many fantastic actors, we'll be using different players in every episode of this series. Each episode is a stand alone story, and we'll require a variety of actors to fill both lead and supporting roles.

Keep in mind that just because you want a role, and think you can act, doesn't mean we'll clear a space for you. Being aggressive or manipulating won't get you a part.

Speaking roles must be played by individuals who fit the character and can nail a performance. "Almost good enough" ain't gonna cut it here. You need to be physically right for the role and have the "chops" to go with it. Period.

 

 

That said, we want to make this super easy for you.

Take a moment, and read this article expressly created for those auditioning with Dirt Capsule Films.

If you address the points in this article before your next audition, you'll not only rise to the upper 10% of people we schedule, but you'll have a better chance of nailing auditions with other groups as well.

SERIES SYNOPSIS

   

An unusual item is discovered in the post-apocalyptic aftermath -- a capsule containing a universe that parallels our own.

It makes contact with a small film-crew who documents the strange stories of those from a previous life who played a pivotal role in the destruction of a once civilized world.

Each episode begins with an item found amid the wasteland. Each item offers a clue, based on it's history, told through a narrative story which only the capsule can recall.

What follows are visceral tales of fantasy, action and drama that explore the core of human nature, across time and space.

Each tale offers a moral to what ended the civilized world, a clue revealing the future fate of humanity, and another step deeper into the mysterious world of the Dirt Capsule.
