Casting Notice: Open auditions for short film "Brothers"

[Received this audition notice for a short film shooting in New Hampshire:]

Holding open auditions for a short film this Saturday 3/23. Looking for tough, scrappy boys that look age 9-13. Brothers and kids with experience on the farm is a plus. Robert Eggers directs, Brothers. Eggers is a Sundance Institute Cinereach Film Fellow. The film is produced by Jodi Redmond (Fray) and Parts & Labor (Beginners, The Loneliest Planet). The film shoots for three days in early/mid April in the Epping area.

Tom and Jake live on a ramshackle farm with their grandmother. Tom loves his older brother, but Jake has a dark side. After the boys find a strange object in the woods their innocent roughhousing escalates to tragedy.

No acting or film experience is necessary. No need to prepare anything. Audition materials will be provided. A parent or guardian must accompany their child to the audition. Auditions will be held 12pm-5pm Saturday 3/23 at The Oyster River Players Children’s Theatre rehearsal studio. 209 Pleasant Street, Epping NH. For questions please email: robertheggers@gmail.com.
