UNC Film Club hosts casting
Within the rooms of Crabbe Hall, many young and talented actors showed up to UNC’s Film Production Club’s casting auditions. FPC held an open casting call, in a search to fill the roles that they need for their upcoming projects this semester. With no acting experience required, they invited anyone who was even mildly curious about acting to come out and audition.
Dorian Wilkerson, a sophomore English major, decided that he wanted to audition to “tamper and dabble in the artistic form of voice and body movement.”
“I did a monologue from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” Wilkerson said. “It was more dramatic than I see myself being. I think it’s good to challenge oneself to go beyond what they’ve been told that they can do. It’s bad if you never try something new.”
Returning club members are most excited to see what this semester has to offer. Roody Labaze, a senior theatre major, has been a member of the club for a few years, and he sees this semester as the first semester where it truly feels like a club.
“There has never been so many people involved, so many excited people. We’ve got a lot of things going on at the moment.” Labaze said.
“This semester feels like the first one to really establish a foundation for what we expect in the future.”
Labaze also said that even with the club tackling more projects this semester, he still hopes to help with as many as he can, in whatever way that he can.
Ethan Funk-Breay, a sophomore visual arts major, enjoyed taking part in the audition process because of the range of talent he witnessed.
“What’s good about FPC is that there is a variety of acting talent. There’s no mold for the actors,” Funk-Breay said, “I just love the art of it all.”
Funk-Breay finished by sharing his excitement to see the finished projects at the end of the semester, “I hope people come and enjoy it as much as we love doing it. That’s the best gift that FPC could get.”
With projects ranging from short comedies to longer dramas, FPC member have a full slate of projects that they are hard at work on. Applying the skills that the club has learned over their years of creating short films, their work this semester will surely be worth a watch when they have their screening towards the end of the semester. Their previous projects can be seen on YouTube on the club’s channel, UNC Film Production Club.
