The open casting call will consist of a brief discussion with a member of the casting team and a photograph. No appointment is necessary, but a positive attitude and the ability to quietly wait are good traits to put to use when attending an open casting call. Acting experience is not necessary and if selected, compensation will be on the scale of other professional productions.

The feature film Harriet is set to star Cynthia Erivo (The Color Purple). The film tells the story of Harriet Tubman, who helped free hundreds of slaves from the South after escaping from slavery herself in 1849.
Filming will commence on October 8, 2018 in Richmond, VA and the surrounding area.
