New Web Series Our Cultural Center is casting Chicago area actors!
Open Casting Call: Tue Aug 13 & 20 1 – 4 pm
2000 W Fulton – Chicago
The series revolves around the founder of Our Cultural Center, Victoria, who just lost her primary funder. When her funder died, she reluctantly partnered with her ex-husband Randall who is looking to save money and has no interest in the arts. This series will feature real artists and artwork, both of which will be catalyst for conflict between Victoria, Randall and others at Our Cultural Center.
Our Cultural Center is seeking men and women from the Chicagoland area who want to be part of this great project, who are reliable, fun and energetic. They are asking that applicants have a basic understanding of improv and feel comfortable making scripts their own and beefing up comic elements, (I want to hand you a script and say make it better), good camera presence and have some understanding of the nonprofit arts world, or open to talking to a few people in that world. Bring headshot and resume and have a brief comic monologue prepared.

Our Cultural Center is also looking for writers and visual artists. Find out more here.
About Our Cultural Center
Our Cultural Center is a trans media program that focuses on the struggles of a fictitious, nonprofit cultural center in Chicago. We work with local writers, artists, and actors to produce this live episodic program. Each episode will be available to view on Mondays at (TBD) come October 2013. We will be showcasing this new approach to interacting with the arts and building new audiences, with a strong online presence of the long format episodes as well as short webisodes.
The idea was built by painter MartinJon who reached out to longtime collaborator Dan Findley who has a background in theater. They pulled in a great writing team for the pilot and with a lot of encouragement along the way, they are pushing forward, looking for investors, partners and collaborators. If that is you, let them know!
Feel free to contact the producers of Our Cultural Center with a any questions.
