Casting Call for a Visayan Indie Film

Written by Ria Jose

A service announcement from Yam’s Multiply:

We are in need of Visayan actors for an indie film entitled “The ‘Thank You’ Girls’ scheduled to be shot in Davao City on March 2008. Audition will be on FEB. 22, 2008 in DAVAO CITY (specific venue to be announced later) so if you know people who will be interested in the area, kindly tell them.

“The ‘Thank You’ Girls” is a roadtrip comedy about five dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans who always lose in gay beauty pageants. They then decide to travel from Davao to Cagayan de Oro City thinking they have better chances of winning in the provinces.

STRAIGHT ACTORS CAN AUDITION.

Also, if you are an unsigned alternative rock band who has recorded music, we are in need of songs for the film’s soundtrack.
