The Springer Film Institute is teaming up with CSU’s Natalia Temesgen to film the web series, GROUNDS.
Set in a local coffee shop, GROUNDS explores the quirky and complex relationships of the patrons in a southern town.
Auditions will be scheduled in fifteen minute appointments and will consist of cold reads from the script. Script sides will be made available to you once you’ve been confirmed an audition time.
One episode is a musical and that will require singing at the audition. Please prepare a few bars of a song that shows your capabilities. Singing auditions will be done without accompaniment. You do not have to sing to be considered for other episodes.
Auditions will be held by appointment only at Studio 7 of The Springer Film Institute, 103 10th Street, Columbus GA 31901. You do not need to bring a headshot, but a résumé is encouraged if you have one.
Audition appointments are available from 10 AM to 9PM on Sunday, Dec. 2nd.
