Horror satire seems like it’s one of the toughest things to nail down. Too often it either falls flat or is just plain stupid. But I’ve got a good feeling about the folks behind How to Survive the Strange, and if you do, too, you might be able to join them!
Want to learn how to destroy evil robots with jumper cables or how to troubleshoot broken household appliances with ESP? New web series ‘How to Survive the Strange’ aims to be PBS’s ‘This Old House’ meets a zombie apocalypse survival guide. An open casting call for the show will be held March 15th at 6pm at Crackskull’s Coffee and Books in Newmarket, NH.
‘How to Survive the Strange’ is a tongue-in-cheek how-to series created by web producer John Herman and Bryan White, author of horror blog Cinema Suicide. According to the creators, the show aims to prepare the public for everything from alien invasion to campground slashers – often using common objects around the house. Herman and White are looking to cast zombies, ghosts, evil robots, and even a crazed mob. And there are non-strange roles to cast, too.
Interested non-union actors are encouraged to bring a headshot and talent resume, though neither is required to audition. Actors will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. How to Survive the Strange debuts May 3rd on the web.
