Actor - (posted 11/14/17 by UW-Madison Film Department)

I am a student at UW-Madison making a short student film for my film production class, Com 355.

This is a very substantive role, and I will send the finished copy of the film so it can be placed on a portfolio or reel. Food and water will be provided on set, and it is most likely a one-day shoot. If interested, email me at kmcquillen@wisc.edu or contact me on my cell 661-993-3957 and I will send you the script as well as give you the audition time.
