Local film production krew, KillaCozzy are hosting auditions on Sep 13-14 and 20-21 and extras casting on the 13th and 20th in the UNF Lazzara Recital Hall and lobby of the Fine Arts Center (respectively) for their “independent ‘art film'”, Self-Portrait.

Here’s the plot:

Calvin, in his mid-20s and a struggling painter, has always tried to do the right thing while not sacrificing his own desire to one day become a successful artist.

Unable to adequately provide for or satisfy his longtime girlfriend, Nancy, he begrudgingly makes a series of artistic and ethical concessions that promise fame and wealth, but threaten to corrupt his ideals.

All the while, Calvin scrupulously perfects a painting of his spirited model, Marjorie, in secret, risking both his relationship and success.

His dilemma is ultimately Faustian; Will he choose everything he’s ever wanted or everything he’s ever needed?

Sounds like a fun way to get your 15 minutes and support local filmmaking.
