Production Update

Thanks to everyone who sent in their pictures and resumes and links to their work. Got sooooo many responses, so much more than I was really expecting. There is much to sort through and many details I have to work out, so bare with me if you haven't heard from me just yet. I'm going to hold auditions, but I don't know if it will even be within this or next month. So many more details I have to juggle than first expected, but I am happy to have so many offers of help.

I'll keep posting updates on what's what here. Just so everyone knows, the actual productions are going to be as follows. We will do one Monster Cops short which will not be paying and then a Monster Cops feature which will be paying. I will be utilizing the short as a way to kind of get to know what people and resources I can use for the feature as well as another example of something to show investors and sponsors for the feature.

Again thank you to everyone and I hope to speak to many of you soon.

Cast And Crew Call

Winston Salem/Triad Area, NC.

Local Indie Short Film Series MONSTER COPS
Seeking Cast and Crew.

Monster Cops is a short series based off the Cult Comedy Horror Flick MONSTER COPS: THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, currently on DVD.

It's a mockumentary look into a secret government agency dedicated to hunting down monsters. It's Reno 911 meets Blair Witch. The Office meets Ghostbusters.

Looking for anyone interested in helping out as part of the cast or crew. Shooting in and around the Winston Salem, NC area. Experience is favorable but not required. Your first time out? No prob. We need as many people as we can get. We'll show you what needs to be done.


Major Roles that still need to be filled are as follows:

GREENLY - Female. 20-30 years of age. Talkative psychic, very naive, yet suprisingly intuitive.
WEIR - Male. 20-30 years of age. Rookie Officer. Young but very much a soldier. Comedic Role.
JONES - Male 20-30 years of age. Detective. Wise Guy. Eats alot of donuts.
MILLER - MALE 20-30 years of age. Soldier type. Gets to fire off alot of bullets.
MACREADY - Male 20-30 years of age. Tough guy, Cop, Always handy with the one liners.
WEREWOLF - Male. Need a fairly tall, agile, well built, individual who won't mind running around, in a fur suit, snarling at people.

Also need any males or females interested in playing Police Officers, Military, SWAT, and Soldier type roles. Must be familiar with firearms or at least know how to hold a gun. Military or Police experience a plus. If you're a Paintballer, great.

Also looking to fill monster roles. Anyone interested in playing Vampires or Zombies, we're going to need a bunch of them. May require you to get a little messy, crawl on the ground, get blood or guts on you, and or fall over onto a mattress after your head has been blown off. Moaning, screaming, or hissing, may be required of you as well.

We're looking for gaffers, grips, people to help pull cords, hold lights, as well as assist in some of the special fx sequences. No previous experience required. We'll tell you where to stand and what string to pull.

Make up artists. There will be much zombie and vampire make up to apply. Some previous experience in basic stage make up would be great.

Sound person. We need someone to help record sound on set.

No pay, as yet. Full credit and copy of final work, and we'll feed you. I swear you won't regret being a part of this production.
