Watkins College Film School Fall Auditions

Posted on: Friday - Sep 5, 2014

Watkins College Film School Fall Auditions Watkins College of Art, Design & Film will hold a general casting call for Fall 2014 student film projects on Saturday, September 13, at the Watkins campus in Metro Center, 2298 Rosa L Parks Blvd, Nashville, TN. 37228. Free parking is available.

Directors of more than 20 productions–from the film programs at Watkins and, for the first time, Belmont University–will be looking for actors of all ages. Student films are allowed to be made under the SAG/AFTRA student film agreement and therefore all current union members are allowed to participate. Actors are asked to bring headshots and résumés.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script (with on-camera readings at the discretion of each director). Casting breakdowns and proposed shoot dates (usually over a 3-day/Friday–Sunday period) will be posted at

Audition slots will be divided according to gender and age throughout the day (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.); individual appointments are not available.

  • 10 to 11 a.m. – Leading men, age range 19-40
  • 11 a.m. 12 noon – Leading and character men, age range 40 and up
  • 12 noon to 1 p.m. – Leading women, age range 19-40 
  • 1 to 2 p.m. – Leading and character women, age range 40 and up 
  • 3 to 4 p.m. – Children and youth, age range 8-18 

Check the auditions page for more information and a few times between now and Sept.13th as more projects will be posted. Minors and parents should check to see if parts in your child’s age range are casting before coming here. All cast members will be invited to a screening of projects at the end of the semester and will have access to an online copy of the film and a quick-time file (without music) to cut into a reel. The best films of 2014 will showcase at the Nashville Film Festival this spring.
