Casting Call

“Grow Old with Me.”

Casting Call University North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) Shirt Film Winston Salem, NC

My name is Ally Ryan, I am a student at University North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) in Winston Salem. I’m studying Filmmaking there, and I’m currently working as a casting director on a second year thesis film called “Grow Old with Me.”

Our story is about Ruth, (55-85 years) a widow trying to regrow her husband using her supernatural powers. Our main priority right now is finding someone to play the role of Ruth, however we are still looking for someone to play Marvin, her husband as well.

Attached is the casting breakdown for the film.


We will be shooting March 21st and 22nd on a small farm in Winston Salem near UNCSA. The exact location is not determined yet, however, it will be in Forsyth county.

These will be 12 hour days, the role of Marvin will not be needed for the entirety of both days. Neither role will be paid, however they will get screen credit and a copy of the film. There will be mild nudity (waist up) for the role of Marvin.

Let me know if you have any question, and thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
