Local film opportunity

Here's an opportunity for those who have always wanted to be in film. Auditions are set for Feb. 5 and 6 (location to be announced, possibly at Lido Beach) for an indie flick called "Portrait of Yvonne." The film is about the emotional struggles of four men who are trying to work through their flaws to find happiness. Scenes will be shot on beaches and other locales across the area.

Several families, young boys and older couples are needed. Filming will be Feb. 11-24.

Headshots and resumes can be emailed to producer Jeremiah Kipp at jeremiahkipp@hotmail.com. Mention you saw this post on our Web site.
