A Sesame Street short film is set to shoot in Hudson Valley and producers are looking for local talent.

Footage Films is casting the production on a micro-budget and will be filming in Beacon Monday. Producers are looking for submissions via email with your name and age along with answers to some non-traditional audition questions.

Include something you like about nature. They'd also like you to show your favorite movement, that could be a dance move or exercise. Keep it clean here people. And as a bonus, if you could include a story about an experience you had doing something nice for someone else recently, that could score you some extra points with casting directors. Anyone interested in auditioning for the following roles should email info@footagefilmsinc.com.

Available Roles: 

  • Main Character: skinny Indian or Central American boy, age 8. Singing skills are a plus, include an audio sample in your audition if you're comfortable.
  • Camp Counselor: 25-35-year-old African American or Latino man or woman.
  • Campers: 4-5 eight-year-olds needed
