Location Needed - Child Casting!! - Panel on Film Financing

Location Needed - Child Casting!! - Panel on Film Financing

Hello everyone, (This must be in Nassau County)

1) For Boardwalk Empire - they're looking for a house similar to the attached reference photo.They're looking for an old, brown-shingled, 2 story type of structure that sits on a lot of land, at least an acre. If you have any suggestions, please email and reference Boardwalk Empire.

2) Casting!  A very special young actor - 
 We are currently casting a film called WEIGHTLESS, starring Nick Nolte ('48 Hours') and Jason 
Clarke (‘Zero Dark Thirty’).  And for this film we’re searching for a young boy 
to play the leading role of ‘Will’.  He is age 8-12, and weighs approximately 
150 - 200 lbs.

This search is quite special.  He's the kind of kid you don't see a lot of in 
movies, and we want to change that.  We have the opportunity to find a "diamond 
in the rough" to play the leading role. He doesn’t need to be a professional 
actor at all….

Our lead, 'Will', is just a sweet, quiet, shy kid. But, he's also coping with 
childhood obesity, bullying and divorce — issues that affect so many kids today.  
Ultimately it’s a hopeful story and we’re proud to be working on it.

Attached is a flyer with some more information on the movie and a link to our 
website,  On the website they can find out how to 
audition.  They can also ‘like’ our Facebook page and get updates there 

Any kid who might be in the ballpark, you can certainly encourage them to 
audition by doing a short video interview on (doing it on a phone is fine - it 
doesn’t need to be fancy) and uploading it to our audition site. There are 
helpful instructions and tech support available, and we’re here to answer any 

We would SO appreciate it if you could share this email and flyer with anyone 
you think might be right, or anyone who might possibly know someone who would be 
right. Kids, adults, teachers, counselors, etc., etc.  

Lastly, if you can recommend any colleagues, any community leaders, or 
particular groups you think we should talk to, we'd really appreciate any ideas 
you might have.   If there are other avenues you think I should explore just let 
me know.  I'm happy to talk with or email anybody.
You'll be able to find a flyer (shortly) at

Thank you.
Best regards,
