CASTING CALL

BE IN AN ARTIST VIDEO!

Seeking volunteer actors (all ages) for the AGSM artist-in-residence Jillian McDonald's film shoot. No experience necessary - we will be filming outdoors near Brandon. Must be available for several hours, although actual filming will not be prolonged. This is a collaborative project with Brandon-based artist Peter Morin, coordinated by the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba.

Casual auditions / interviews March 6 - 8th at Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. Please call gallery or email Natalia Lebedinskaia ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for an appointment.

Filming will take place between March 9th and 21st, and the final film will be exhibited at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba in Fall 2015.

 

More about the film:
Spook (working title) 

Spook’s main feature will be the winter prairie landscape. Little movement, save hair in wind or an animal moving its head, will betray the stillness. Paired white animals, both predators and prey, will populate the scenes. Polar bear and seal, arctic fox and hare, owl and mouse, caribou and wolf, represented by both costumed characters filmed on location and live animals filmed in captivity will be composited together in scenes that, as in much of McDonald’s recent work, are separate compositions and nearly still images. The actors, sought from the local community, will be outfitted in furs and antlers, claws and teeth, and filmed amid snowy fields of Southwestern Manitoba. Off-hinge shutters may clammer in the wind, the sun may gleam through fallen beams of an old barn, and scenes will be made more otherworldly by such simple means as wide open skies moving faster than possible.
