auditions for my short film
here are a few headshots of some of the actresses that came in to audition for jen. i was looking for a girl next door sort of look, but beyond that, i didn’t really have any preconceived notions as far as appearance goes.
the actress i pick will play opposite this actor, tw leshner.
i usually have people do one read, and then give them an adjustment to see how well they take direction. for this particular piece, i was really watching them to see how well they listened. so much of comedy is in the reaction, and that’s what i was looking for when they weren’t delivering lines. i have to review tapes from the audition and decide who to bring in for callbacks.

i have to read more of the script for the “girl next door” idea. but an asian girl raised by american parents could be a nice twist if the story could so warrant.
you are lucky to be in LA and find a lot of actors. here in asia we aren’t so lucky to get so many great actors.
but my money is on an asian actress who was raised by american parents.
