Thank you for your interest in our latest project, which
will be filmed in mid-July. We are located in Palm Bay,
which is an hour east of Orlando, off of I-95.
Ray and Migdalia Etheridge have been making low budget features, shorts,
and documentaries for a number of years. Many of their films can be seen
on a variety of streaming platforms such as TubiTV, Plex, Amazon, and many
others. Ray and Migdalia are the entire "crew", sharing all duties equally.
See our IMDB credits if you'd like (click here). By the way, we are both vaccinated and have been double boosted.
"GHOSTS DON'T WEAR NAME TAGS", a Drama/Thriller, will be shot entirely green screen in the Etheridge home in Palm Bay. (Check out a clip from our last green screen film by clicking the menu at the top of the page). Synopsis: Ted and Mary buy a haunted house just for the fun of it, but nobody seems to know who the ghost is, or what it looks like. Proposed running time is 25 minutes, and it will be a PG-13. There are 4 Saturday/Sunday shoot days, but many roles only require 1-day of work.
Actors receive $125 per day. You will provide your own simple wardrobe. For all actors and actresses, NO PIERCING, NO VISIBLE TATTOOS. Women should arrive on set "camera ready" with hair and makeup already done. Clothes can be changed after you arrive. We will do the men's makeup for them. Characters are as follows:
TED BOYLE - Works 2 days. Age 25-50. Ted and his wife Mary buy a haunted house "on purpose" for adventure and excitement. The house is huge, but in bad need of repair. They will fix it as an investment. Lots of dialogue.
MARY BOYLE - Works 4 days. Age 25-50. Mary is just as excited as Ted to be living in a haunted house. Feminine but not afraid to get her hands dirty. Lots of dialogue.
REAL ESTATE AGENT - Works 1 day. Age 30-60. Sells Ted and Mary their haunted house. A little shady, he/she will say anything to make a sale. Moderate dialogue.
WILLIAM FLANNIGAN - Works 1 day. Age 30-60. Ted's lawyer who once helped him with a business deal that turned bad. Ethical. Lots of dialogue.
LEAD DETECTIVE - Works 1 day. Age 35-60. Clean cut professional. His/her men are looking for Ted, who turns up missing. Not much dialogue.
ROBERT BOTKIN (aka the "MAN") - Works 1 day. Age 25-50. Very small role with not much dialogue. He once owned part of a copper mine with Ted. Humble hard worker. Described as "baby faced" in the script. Not much dialogue.
AGNES - Works 2 days. Age 30-60. Ted and Mary's cook and housekeeper. She is polite, professional, and addresses her employer with respect. Substantial dialogue.
Please note that we do not need any "extras". Please do not apply for any role other that those posted above.
To greatly simplify the auditioning process, we will not be having in-person auditions. We will be casting entirely via the materials that you provide us. Please provide us with the following items:

(3) Most importantly, we need to see your "reel" which
demonstrates your ability to deliver lines. If you do not have
a reel, you can shoot a demo (on your cell phone if needed),
using scripts that we have provided on another page.
(4) You can email the above materials to us at
email@example.com and an MP4 of your demo can be
sent to us free via wetransfer.com , youtube, (or any
file sharing system that you normally use.)
