Want A Role In My Movie?

For those of you who watched my live chat last night on UStream, I announced that I’m looking for a few extra roles to fill for the movie I shot in January. Except I don’t want “actors.” I want YOU.

I can’t give away what happens in the film, but I need your help to finish it. Over the next two months, I’ll be detailing several different ways you can do that (so if you prefer not being in front of the camera, that’s ok!). Anyone who chooses to be involved on-camera will, of course, receive credit and more importantly, an invite to the premiere!

First and foremost, I need 5-10 internet savvy folks to make homemade video blogs for me, responding to the BELOW POST (titled The Search for Katie). If you’re not comfortable being in front of the camera, simply comment on the post below (you don’t have to use your real name if you don’t want) or write a blog somewhere about the documentary film that I’m now making and send me the link.

Remember: the post below is not real. It is a fictional premise to the film, which was shot documentary style, following a friend of mine (Liz) on the search for her missing sister (Katie). In the film, Liz has strong evidence that Katie was taken by a cult-like organization. In the opening sequence of the film, Liz and I are reviewing the comments and video responses to my blog post. That’s where YOU all come in. You don’t have to use your real name, or play yourself, just send me a video response to my post.

Maybe you were a former YAC member who doesn’t like this ‘bad press.’ Perhaps you had a family member who joined a cult and you sympathize with Liz. Or maybe you’re just a ‘Taryn fan’ and you want to offer any help along the way.  Feel free to be creative – but not too wacky – after all, it has to appear real. My only other guideline is that you cannot be a current member of the YAC. :-) Make sense?

Make sure you upload your videos to YouTube, and send the link to taken@pinkhamsta.com. If you password protect the video, make sure you send me the password so I can view it!
