HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A handful of movies have been filmed in Huntsville, and soon, another crew will visit the Rocket City to film ‘Space Warriors’.
Director Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer) and ArcEntertainment/Kickstart Entertainment will shoot the film at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center from Friday, July 20 through Tuesday, August 21.
There will be a local casting call next week for anyone interested in auditioning for selected roles in Space Warriors.
Auditions will take place at:
705 Stevens Avenue NE
Huntsville, AL 35801
On Monday, July 9th, between 10AM and 6PM, auditions will begin for all of those with scheduled appointments. The best way to submit for an appointment if you are not represented, is through Actor’s Access. This is an online company that has a site set up specifically for this film, but there is a membership fee required to use it and this is more geared for people who are pursuing acting as a career.
On Tuesday, July 10th, from 10AM to 1PM, there will be an open call, and callbacks will be that afternoon from 2PM to 6PM. The casting director urges anyone who is not represented, or would like to try this as a fun opportunity, to come to the open call and audition at that time.
If you are unable to come out on July 9th or 10th, you may have the opportunity to submit yourself through an online audition, starting Monday, July 9th.
These online auditions are more age-specific, calling for several teenagers ages 13-18. You may go to Spacecamp.com/spacewarriors and submit a 30-45 second monologue which best showcases your acting abilities. Priorities will be given to those who submit BEFORE Friday, July 13th.
Candidates who submit videos after this date will have the same opportunity, but selections will begin upon receiving.
The FINAL deadline for submissions will be Tuesday, July 31st.
Travel and expenses will not be provided.
This locals casting call is completely separate from the call for extras, which will occur at a later date and time TBD.
Please do not contact the U.S. Space & Rocket Center about scheduling for this local casting call.
