The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission, like other publicly-funded film commissions in the U.S.A., works only with funded productions and does not assist producers in securing funding for projects.

The Film Commission's Website makes available hiring/casting information from third parties. This information is to be used as general information only. Although such information is believed to be generally reliable, the posting of the information on the commission website does not constitute an endorsement, recommendation, or solicitation from the Commission. Nor does the Posting imply any assurance regarding the accuracy of the information, the funding of the project, the completion of the project, or the payment to crew/vendors/cast.


Aug. 13 - Casting for extras in Nashville

We just got word of this casting call in Nashville on Saturday (Aug. 13) for extras for the film "Stoker."

The open call is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Rocketown (601 4th Ave South).

No acting experience is necessary. Applicants are asked to bring a recent snapshot of themselves, no larger than 4x6 inches.  They should park in the General Rocketown parking.

Children and teens will be seen from 9 AM to Noon. Adults will be seen from 1 PM to 3 PM. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Although all ages are needed, casting directors are searching for three boys who bear a physical resemblance to some of the adult actors.  They are hoping to find a set of Caucasian male twins, between the ages of two and three years of age.

Producers are also seeking teens and young adults who are over the age of 18 but who could pass for younger high school students.

The project begins filming in Middle Tennessee the end of August, will be directed by Park Chan-wook and will star Tennessee resident and Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman.  It is a Scott Free production in conjunction with Fox Searchlight Pictures.
