19th & Wilson Announces Virtual Casting Call

19th & Wilson is announcing a virtual casting call for our film “Admins”.

Here’s what you need to do to:

  1. Check the Characters below and download the sides for you to act out.
  2. Shoot the video of you acting out the sides. We’re looking more for acting ability vs production quality. In other words, you can even use your phone to shoot it but pull off the scene best as you can (but don’t shoot it in the dark either).
  3. Send us the video or post it up on Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook or wherever you prefer. (Password protect it if you’d like just remember to send us the password). Send us a link or the video itself to admins@19w.com
  4. Follow us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/19thandWilson and twitter @19w to stay current on our efforts to promote the casting call.

Optionally, if you want to share your video on Facebook or Twitter be sure to tag @19w and use #AdminsCasting in your tweet/Status Update.

Location: Tysons Corner, VA
Production Dates: July 18th Through July 27th
Pay: Yes
SAG: No – This is a NON-SAG production.

The virtual casting will last until May 23rd.

To begin, just to set the tone, this a parody of Clerks.

Dan – A mid to late 20′s systems admin who feels stuck in a dead end job. Lacks social skills or social life but doens’t mean he’s a full blown nerd. He just has to break out of his routine. Sides
Randy – young desktop support guy who is care free, neurotic, perverted, and not politically correct — the kind that would wear shorts and flip flops to work if he could. Sides
Vera – I.T. project manager who is tough but vulnerable as she has an office romance brewing with Dan. Sides
Kathy – Attractive, confident, leader, she’s a woman of power in the office and turns heads. This role will require some nudity. Sides
Jake – cocky sales guy, bullies Dan and Randy Sides

There are a lot of speaking roles that aren’t in the list of characters as they are bit parts. We encourage as many people as possible to submit headshots and videos. The setting is an office environment therefore it’s important to get a diverse set of actors.

A few years ago we shot a short film called “The Department”, a parody of Scorsese’s “The Departed” with the characters set in an office.
