Online Auditions and Extras Needed for a Film Here at Brooklyn Collaborative, written by BCS student Leen Shumman!

Last year, Brooklyn Collaborative senior Leen Shumman wrote a short story as part of her ELA 11 class (with teachers Dwight and Phill G) that won the Scenarios USA essay contest.  Part of the prize is for the short story to be converted to a screenplay and turned into a film!  The story/film is called Cut In Half and is a story of two Muslim sisters and their family as they experience and cope with the Leukemia diagnosis of Layla, the eldest daughter, and her decisions about life and death.

Scenarios USA is filming here at BCS on Oct 22/23 and the film will be directed by Susan Seidelman (Desperately Seeking Susan).

Online auditions are open (all ages)! If you click the link below, you will learn all you need to know about how to record an audition and submit it for a role in our next short film.

You must post your audition no later than Monday, October 3rd. We will call you by October 10th, if we want to bring you in for an audition in person.

If you feel like none of the roles above quite suit you or you’re not quite ready for the spotlight, we need teachers and students of all kinds to be extras!
