This short scene from Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" to be rehearsed and filmed is part of a directing workshop class at UT, where the emphasis is on building a relationship between the director and actors and realizing the potential of a scene on the page through that director-actor relationship. It's a great opportunity for actors to seriously practice their craft and receive constructive feedback from a varied group of young filmmakers (as well as professor Ed Radtke).
There will be at least one rehearsal to be scheduled over the weekend before October 15th, and on the 15th it will be NECESSARY for the actors to come into to the studio classroom for around 45 minutes between 2pm and 5pm to present the rehearsed scene to the class and receive constructive feedback. This is MANDATORY as well as being one of the most important parts of the experience! Following that, there will be at least one more rehearsal, after which the scene will be filmed on a date TBD before the end of October.
This scene is unpaid, but food/snacks will be provided during rehearsals/shooting, in addition to the very valuable and constructive feedback from the workshop and the final copy of the filmed scene (the turnaround on which will be very short).
If interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your headshot, specify the character you would like to audition for, and I'll get you a timeslot and the screenplay excerpt of the scene. I look forward to hearing from/working with you!
