In God's Hands.
We all, each of us here, harbor latent dreams, fantasies about what life might have looked like if a turn had been made here instead of there, a pivot there instead of here. Sliding doors, man, but what might have you become if the chips fell… better? An astronaut zooming through space? A rock ‘n’ roll superstar shaking your hips on stage in front of adoring thousands? Chief Executive Officer of the World Surf League, counting Jordy Smith, Connor O’Leary, Jadson Andre amongst your very best friends?
Well, guess what? Acting takes no real talent and so your dream could still be achieved and, as fate would have it, there is an open casting call happening right this moment in Santa Cruz. Do I have your attention?
Santa Cruz Surf Project has posted an open casting call for young surfers on the Central Coast for a major feature film.
“The film will be created by an Academy Award-winning filmmaking team — who’d love to meet you! No acting experience required,” reads the release to the public.
The movie is looking for surfers of any ethnicity or gender, between the ages of 14-22.
The casting call will be Saturday, Aug. 27 from 12-5 p.m. at Santa Cruz High School Auditorium 415 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
“Once you arrive, we’ll get you checked in and ready to go – no need to prepare anything, just bring your authentic self! Please come prepared for wait times. If you have any questions, please direct them to [email protected]”
Time is ticking.
But, quickly, what movie do you think this casting is for? I’m going to guess Barbarian Days. Also, which amongst your friends here do you think would make the best actor? I’m going to say Michael Newman.
Now get thee to Santa Cruz High School Auditorium!
