Thank you so much for your interest in being part of our film making family here at A CHANNEL OF PEACE.

 

One question we are asked often is a completely obvious and reasonable question. “Is there pay?“

Generally speaking, the answer is unfortunately, no. Because we operate through a NOT FOR PROFIT, we conduct our business in the same way that a community theater would operate or if you were volunteering at an event like Musikfest. We are looking primarily for actors who would enjoy the opportunity and the experience and the community of being part of the film making process. Many of the roles in our movies do not pay.

 

As an actor, myself,  there are times and occasions that I act for free. That may be a surprise to many, but when the opportunity has presented itself and some particular criteria were met I volunteered my services. 

At this point in my life and career I’m very interested in creating as many opportunities for actors as I possibly can. Therefore our movies are non-union movies. 

 

At ACOP we are also working diligently to provide a chance for our local actors to work alongside of respected professional actors. It’s very important to us to provide a professional and enjoyable set experience to everyone who participates. The last point I’d like to make, while we’re communicating here, is that despite the fact that many roles in our films are not paid, I ask that if you do audition for us you understand that we will require the commitment of time necessary to make the movie. 

 

Our Casting department is working diligently to help me provide all of these opportunities but they will not have time to answer every question. Simply, I would say that if you require payment or are not available for the proposed shooting dates of mid July to mid August, please do not audition for The Hail Mary. I hope and pray that all makes sense. We are trying to do some thing that no one‘s ever tried before, creating a hybrid entertainment opportunity on a very low budget whilst giving those involved a wonderful and creatively fulfilling experience!

 

All of this requires a lot of diligent effort on the part of so many volunteers and professional filmmakers. If you do join us, you will have a fantastic time.

 

With Great respect,
