Casting Call for Scene from “Almost Famous”

The original movie received four Academy Awards nominations, including a win for Best Original Screenplay and two Golden Globe Awards!

Starring for Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand, Kate Hudson, and Patrick Fugit. If you love rock and roll, this is a great opportunity to create our own version!

I’m a UT Film student producing a scene from the film as an exercise for class. The final product will be showcased to other UT RTF student directors who will be producing a variety of shorts in Austin over the next years.


PENNY – [Late 20s, Female, American] Nothing matters more than live with people that love the rock and roll, they are her family.

WILLIAM – [Late 20s, Male, American] Not as dark or mysterious as he thinks. A little confused about rock and roll’s rules.
