Heroes of Olympus Webseries
The Heroes of Olympus Webseries is looking for actors in and around the Montgomery, Alabama area.
This project is run by high school students.
There will be no payment for anyone involved in the project.

We are willing to make exceptions for the roles; please email us any questions (for example: if you feel you could play the part well, but are not an exact fit). Please film yourself reading any lines for the character from chapters one through ten. For extras, film yourself reacting to someone else (so it would be background acting).
