Open casting in Schenectady for feature film 'How I Live Now' seeking girls 14-19

How I Live Now Open Casting Call Schenectady

The film "How I Live Now" is based on best-selling young adult novel by Meg Rosoff.
Penguin Publishing

Casting Society of America Artios Award winning cating director Cindy Tolan is conduction an open casting call in Schenectady, NY for the feature film "How I Live Now". The open call is open to Caucasian girls between the ages of 14 and 19 for the lead role of Daisy in the film. The producers are hoping to find an unknown talent with no previous acting experience. This is a role that could easily launch an acting career. Shooting will take place in the United Kingdom starting in late Spring or early Summer 2012.

The story centers on of a 15-year-old girl from Manhattan named Daisy who goes to spend an idyllic summer in the English countryside with cousins she has never met. Young love blossoms. But a world war breaks out and the kids are suddenly not alright. They're thrust into the terrifying atmosphere of an occupying military force and Daisy becomes an unlikely heroine.

Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald will direct "How I Live Now" from an adapted screenplay written by Jeremy Brock and Tony Grisoni. Macdonald's directorial credits include Fox Searchlight Pictures' "The Last King of Scotland," Universal Pictures' "State of Play," Focus Features' "The Eagle," among numerous award winning documentaries. Tony Grisony is the writer of the "Red Riding Trilogy".

Alasdair Flind and Charles Steel are producing for London's Cowboy Films, the same company the produced "The Last King of Scotland" also directed by Kevin Macdonald. Andrew Ruhemann and Charles Steel will produce Passion Pictures. Ruheman won a 2011 Academy Award for Passion Pictures animated short film "The Lost Thing".

The open casting call will take place at the same Erie Boulevard location in Schenectady, NY where more than 2,000 hopefuls snaked around the block and waited for hours on June 4, 2011 during an open casting call for "A Place Beyond the Pines." That film, which hired more than 1,500 local people as extras, wrapped Saturday September 24th after 10 weeks of shooting in the city and across the Capital Region.

You must be legally able to be employed in the United Kingdom to work as an actor or extra in the feature film "How I Live Now". The following is available in the 2012 London Actors Resource Guide eBook:

Note: "Call Me Artie" has been using the working title of "Us & Them". A working title is the temporary name of a film used during its development. Working titles are used primarily for two reasons - the first being that an official title has not yet been decided upon and the working title is being used as a filler for naming purposes, the second being to intentionally disguise the production of a high profile film. In some cases a working title may ultimately be used as the official title. This "title ruse" is now a very common practice by which these high-profile films or television series is given a fake working title to keep its production a secret, and to prevent price gouging by suppliers, casual theft and undesirable attention. It this case, the production office and company in Atlanta is named Call Me Artie, LLC. In addition, the crew members are using "Call Me Artie" as their current position on their resumes.
