Screen acting actors needed ASAP July 16 2019

Hello, my name is Troy Denet. I am alumni with the Recording Arts Institute of Saskatoon. I was wondering if you had any actors interested in some screen acting. It wouldn't be demanding. It is a sci-fi film, under 8 minutes.


Low dialogue. 

I am looking for a male 24-30 years of age, 6 foot and under, with brown/black hair. The role would be Eric (27), an artist who is dealing with the death of his father. About 12 hours over three sessions.
And a female, same age range, no preference on race or hair colour. 
The role is Angie (30), Art Gallery Director, the mentor for Eric. This would be one scene, a dialogue piece that drives the story. About 3 hours over one session.

I would be looking to shoot the character over 3 sessions of 3-5 hours each with one extra session for an evening shot that may last 2 hours. It is very possible that two sessions can happen within the same day.

There will be good food and beverages provided. I would like to wrap auditions as soon as possible, within the next day or two. The sooner the better.

I can be contacted at troydenet@gmail.com Phone: (306) 681-7409

I very much appreciate the support.

Also, if anyone wants to be in the directory of actors at RAIS you can contact the director Doug Luciak at doug@rais.ca

CHRC The Code of Conduct

Dear Colleagues,

 As you may know, over the last year, the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) has been engaged in a national initiative to promote Respectful Workplaces in the Arts (RWA), including resources for artists and organizations to deal with harassment.  http://respectfulartsworkplaces.ca/.

One of the main objectives of RWA was to create a national Code of Conduct for the Performing Arts. http://respectfulartsworkplaces.ca/code-of-conduct Other cultural industries (notably music and film and television) have developed and released their own codes of conduct.  The notion of simply adapting those codes was considered – and rejected, in favour of a code developed by and for the performing arts reflecting the realities of live performance.

 We are pleased to share the resulting Code of Conduct with you today, and to invite you to become a signatory to it! We also urge you to invite your own members and constituencies to become signatories. (See the draft letter below.)

This Code is predicated on establishing the values that we believe are shared throughout the performing arts. It is not intended to replace existing policies or processes or even existing codes if organizations have developed their own. 

 As the Code states clearly: The Code of Conduct is a set of voluntary commitments developed by a coalition of Canadian performing arts stakeholders.  Each signatory is solely responsible for upholding its commitments under the Code and its obligations under the law.

 We will be building up the signatures over the summer months, leading up to a public launch in late September around Culture Days 2019.  You will be able to seize this opportunity to do your own announcement locally as a signatory to the Code.

If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact Sara Meurling (sara@culturethink.ca) or Denis Bertrand Denis Bertrand (denis@dbertrand.com) who are leading the campaign to get signatories to the Code.

A Canadian Code of Conduct for the Performing Arts!

Dear

We are writing to encourage you to consider signing on to a Canadian Code of Conduct for the Performing Arts  http://respectfulartsworkplaces.ca/code  

To give you a bit of context…Since early 2018, the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) has been engaged in a national initiative to promote Respectful Workplaces in the Arts (RWA) – see http://respectfulartsworkplaces.ca/

This initiative began in January 2018, following a roundtable with artist associations, national arts service organizations and major institutions in the performing arts.  One of the Working Groups established at that meeting was tasked with creating a national Code of Conduct for the performing arts. 

Since then, other cultural industries (notably music and film and television) have developed and already released their own codes of conduct.  The notion of simply adopting or adapting those codes was considered – and rejected.  The RWA Coordinating Committee and CHRC agreed that live performance must develop its own code that would reflect the specificities of work in the performing arts.  (A special effort was made to reach out to equity-seeking groups across the country, who are disproportionately affected by harassment, bullying and discrimination.)

The resulting Code of Conduct was approved by the RWA Coordinating Committee in April of this year. It embodies a set of values, expectations and engagements for artists and employers in the performing arts.  We hope you will review it with your organization and become a signatory.

Note that the Code is not intended to replace existing policies or processes that you may have developed or that are required by legislation. It is not intended to establish a policing or enforcement process.  It is intended to be a living document for all signatories, who should discuss it, adopt it and adapt it to their practices.

Please join us in support of this foundational document!

Longtime Globe Theatre artistic director Ruth Smillie to retire

Longtime Globe Theatre artistic director Ruth Smillie to retire

After two decades at the artistic helm of Regina’s Globe Theatre, Ruth Smillie is saying goodbye — sort of.

Come June 30, Smillie will retire from her role as artistic director, to assume the honorary position of artistic director emeritus. As “emeritus,” she will focus on redeveloping the Prince Edward Building and helping a new artistic director settle in.

She will also direct Cinderella as the 2019-20 season’s holiday show.

“I have loved every minute of my time working at Globe Theatre. I am proud of the theatre’s many successes and achievements during my tenure,” Smillie said in a prepared statement.

This includes creating the Globe Theatre School in 2006 (which contributed to the cast of a couple of shows this season), the Actor Conservatory Training Program in 2008, and the Sandbox Series.

It also includes more than doubling the audience base for Globe Theatre’s productions and completing two capital campaigns to support upgrading the Globe Theatre’s facility.

“I am not retiring from professional theatre,” Smillie said. “It will be exciting for me to have the time to say ‘yes’ to other professional opportunities.”

The Globe will appoint an interim artistic director in September, while the board of directors has begun a search for a new artistic director, to start work in the new year.

Since Smillie was named artistic director and CEO in 1998, the Globe’s annual operating budget — 70 per cent of which is derived from ticket sales — nearly quintupled to almost $5 million.

On Feb. 1, Jaime Boldt assumed the new role of executive director, separating the artistic and business leadership positions of the Globe.

“As artistic director, Ruth has showcased socially and culturally significant productions ,” Boldt said in a news release. “Ruth has acted as significant mentor and role model to many.”

This season, Smillie was a production mentor for Making Treaty 4, a cast of mostly novice actors who had trained for months at the Globe prior to rehearsals.

The Globe will honour Smillie next season.

Training Videos on Workplace Harassment in the Arts for Employers and for Cultural Workers – now online!

Under the Respectful Workplaces in the Arts banner (respectfulartsworkplaces.ca), the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is pleased to announce two training videos on workplace harassment in the arts: one for employers – including Boards of Directors of not-for-profit organizations; and one for cultural workers – including self-employed artists, contractors and employees.

These animated videos on ‘responding to harassment’ are scenario-based. They have been produced to explain the rights and responsibilities of employers with respect to reports of workplace harassment; and to explain the rights and responsibilities of cultural workers who experience or witness harassment. They come with practical takeaways and best practices to recognize and navigate incidents of harassment from both points of view (employer and worker), and include a questionnaire to test the learner’s recall of the videos’ content.

These and several other resources on the respectfulartsworkplaces.ca website, will be immensely helpful to employers and workers alike who are committed to eliminating harassment and ensuring respectful and safe workplaces in the arts.

CHRC acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts in the creation of these and other resources.

For more information contact Susan Annis (sannis@culturalhrc.ca).

Developed by Williams HR Consulting - a 30-minute management training resource on ‘responding to allegations of harassment in the workplace’ with a questionnaire to test learner recall of key points.
