I recently talked with local filmmakers Herschel Zahnd and Kathryn Furrow about their new project, the period drama Breath of Heaven, starring both Zahnd and Furrow, who are also the director and writer, respectively. Their Indiegogo campaign has ended and production is moving forward. Next step: casting.
Zahnd and Furrow will be holding auditions next weekend, June 29 and 30, at the Hyatt downtown. Auditions are open to everybody. Interested parties should pre-register at the official Breath of Heaven website (this link will take you directly to the Actor Submissions page). Walk-ins will be welcome, but priority auditions go to those who pre-register.
Auditions will be held for the following roles:
Jean Renee – Male, Caucasian, 30’s/early 40’s, Elisabeth’s husband, strong, confident, commanding
Hope Bealiu – Female, Creole or Mediterranean, late 20’s/early 30’s, affluent, attractive, Southern Belle
Gerard Bealiu – Male, Caucasian or Mediterranean, 50’s/early 60’s, Hope’s father, affluent, upbeat, Southern Charm
Abigail – Female, Any Ethnicity, 30’s, Head Maid
James – Male, Caucasian, 40’s/early 50’s, Head Butler
Also to be cast are various members of house staff and background characters
