Join Our Cast

 
 

Thanks for your interest in joining our cast! Happenstance is a multi-episode web series, so we’ll be casting rotating roles for each of our episodes. We have finished casting for Episode 1, but we will begin the casting process for Episode 2 soon.

If you aren’t able to be involved with our second episode, we’d still love to hear from you and keep you in mind for future episodes. Additionally, if you’re not cast in the second episode, we will keep you in consideration for future episodes.

Filming for the second episode will take place late 2019/early 2020 in Portland, OR. The exact date and location are TBD. This is a self-funded student project with a limited budget so we’re seeking dedicated people who are excited about the project and who are willing to volunteer their time. That being said, if we feel you’re an absolutely perfect fit for a role and you require compensation, we can discuss it further.

Feel free to explore our website or contact us for further information and script samples. Short character descriptions are included below. If you’re interested in joining our cast, please fill out our actor interest form and we’ll be in touch!
