Interested in starring in Film?
Ben West is a media major at Columbus College of Art and Design, and comes recommended as a good person to work with. He writes: “I'm looking for a female modern dancer who is willing to act and dance in my end of the year film tentatively titled "The Waste Land". I'm looking for someone in the age range of 20-30 who is capable of improvising or choreographic a modern dance to a custom piece of music and who is willing to act as one of the main characters in a roughly 20 minute film. The dance absolutely has to be modern because the character needs to represent the element of water. I can be reached anytime at bwest.2@go.ccad.edu . Sent from SVPP
