Here's a cool picture from Nome in 2005 when we were making our documentary When the Season is Good: Artists of Arctic Alaska.
Our Nome auditions begin this Thursday at the Nome Native Arts Center in the King Island Tribal Offices.
For anyone interested in coming by, here are the details:
Nome Native Arts Center in the King Island Tribal Offices
706 East 4th Street
Thursday, October 29th -- 6-10pm
Friday, October 30th -- 6-10pm
Saturday, October 31st -- 1-4pm
You are welcome to come any time within that time, but it's better to come Thursday if you can. If we are considering you for a role we might ask you to come back on Friday or Saturday as well. If you come Thursday, it gives us more time to get to know you!
We are hoping to meet anyone ages 17 to 70. All roles are Inuit and you must be comfortable acting in English.
We are casting a bunch of teenage roles, as well as a few adult men and women who are supposed to be in their early 40s. We are also casting one Aaka (grandmother) who speaks some Iñupiaq.
WE ARE ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN MEETING YOUNG MEN AGES 17-25 and ADULT MEN 34-45! This is a very unique opportunity to experience acting and filmmaking with a Sundance award-winning director! Don't miss your chance to be a part of it!
Please note: We want to meet anyone interested in acting and filmmaking because we hope to make many films in and about the Arctic. If you aren't right for any parts in On the Ice, it's still worth coming because you might be right for a different film we want to make in the future.
Hope to see you soon! Feel free to email us any time if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
