We want to thank ALL the amazing MICHIGAN AREA ACTORS who braved the cold and stood in long lines to audition at the Motion Picture Institute Saturday. Putting yourself out there is never easy, especially at a big open casting call. We hope you enjoyed the time and found it of value. Sometimes these events are a great opportunity to brush up on audition skills. Directors are scheduling callbacks as I write this. Be on the look out for another open call in MAY.
