    Well, the turnout for the casting wasn't excessive but enought to keep us busy and not have to turn anyone away which was what we were hoping for.

    Tapes for the auditions will be reviewed tomorrow night and the cast will be announced the following day.

    Auditioning is not easy, it always takes a good deal of courage to lay one's skills and talents out for others to judge and we appreciate all who made the effort to come down to the Boy's and Girls Club and help us make this film.

    I thought there might have been a few more that would come out too, however... I will say, I was definitely impressed by the people that DID come, and just wanted to say 'Thank You' for coming down! king

    And I was definately impressed when Zack finally turned off his phone. Mad

    Okay here is the much awaited casting announcement for "Dogged"

    MALE ROLES

    Kevin = Ilyo Tahuri, Ilyo was one of two that were finalist in the decision. Ilyo however nailed the final poetry read far better then anyone else. He also had a tremendous skill for picking up the breakdancing that is required for the role. Congratualtions ILYO!

    Gabe = Carlos Tijerina, Carlos is a seasoned actor and it showed with his exceptional cold read. He was by far the best initial read and no one could come close to matching him for the role of Gabe. Good Job Carlos!

    MC = Damien Fuller, Damien was the runner up for Kevin and would have gotten it if Ilyo took the day off. Damien however is a natural for the announcer at the comedy club.

    FEMALE ROLES

    Unfortunately the female roles in this short are lacking and I apologize for this. I definately need to write a short that can help showcase some of the female talent that auditioned.

    Female Poet = Rebecca Salas, Rebecca had the best read of the ladies who auditioned. Although it was close, she not only seemed to have written the poetry she had the most natural poetic presence. Good Job Rebecca.

    Girlfriend = Sara Gardiner, Sara was the runner up for the female poet. It truly was a tough choice, the Girlfriend role is far beneath Sara's ability however, I would like to find a better role that suits Sara. Hopefully she can help us write a part for her that can showcase her talents properly.

    Honorable Mentions

    Everyone who auditioned did well. Everyone who did audition is more then welcome to help with any production that we make here at D-Lime. No one is left out. It sucks having to pick only a few and turn down some great talent.

    Lauryn Pithey may not be acting in this production but everyone felt she would be great for one of the roles in "Time
    After Time."


    Luke, Lee, Sesar and Dave all had good talent but had some tremendous competition for these roles. I urge them to not let this get them down. They put forth a valiant effort. They are very encouraged to show up for the next audition which they will be informed of the minute we know when it is.

    We will be posting some of the video from the audition of those who were casted here in this thread soon so everyone can see. Zack was the videographer and although he has never had any professional training he didn't do horrible. He only cropped a few heads. Embarassed

    But definately worth checking back to see.

    Thank You all for auditioning! It means a lot to take the time and energy and devote it to an art form that many do not have the chance to pursue.

    We at D-Lime hold all our auditioners in very high regards. For this we salute you.

    We are on hold due to the lead actor breaking his foot. Mainly due to the scene in which he has to break dance. We will most likely take it back up within the next few weeks.

    That's a bummer man. It's ironic that someone would break their foot before a break dance, but typical of trying to make a film, s**t like that happens:) Good luck to you, your cast and crew. Peace
