HAMLET: Open Casting Call

Chicago – Open casting call for Native American actors in the Chicagoland area for a new film project directed by Ernest Whiteman III. This full-length, full-text version of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet will feature an all-Native cast.
Two scenes have been completed. The project is set to resume filming from Monday, April 14 until Friday, April 18. There are over thirty characters to be cast, both male and female roles, ranging from young adults to elders. Acting experience encouraged but not required as this is a volunteer film project.

Ernest M. Whiteman III is a Northern Arapaho filmmaker who graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film/Video Directing. He also serves as the Director of First Nations Film and Video Festival, Inc. a 501c3, non-profit film festival dedicated to supporting Native American directors of all skill levels and working to find them a venue to express their views and screen their works.

“Two Scenes from HAMLET”, which was completed last fall, is currently under consideration for screening with the Tribeca Film Festival.
