Horror Happenings gives readers access to casting calls in horror films that we list periodically, many of which are for actors both experienced and inexperienced. They’re usually for independent films, and some are seeking talent other than on-screen actors & actresses. Even if you don’t act or submit yourself to any of these, hopefully it’s still interesting.
Makeup Artist / Special Makeup (Horror) Effects
This would be for a ultra low budget feature. Initially I will just be consulting with you and I will need to hire you for some test shoots to try to get the look right for our star zombie. Yes, your principal task will be designing a zombie. We are still casting the part, but will definitely be shooting camera tests in August. I would like to consult with you a few times and then hire you for the test shoot then as the shooting schedule shapes up we will need you for the principal shoot in the Fall. We would like to have you also do the typical makeup and hair tasks also. It would help if you are an artist and not just a makeup artist as this is a design task. E-mail pictures of your work and or resumes/links. I will get back to you in the next few days. Thank you: [email protected]
