Football Casting Call

SEEKING FOOTBALL PLAYERS

Males, Ages 18-28, All Ethnicities

Football Film in Memphis, TN

SYNOPSIS:

“A drama revolving around Brian Banks, a star football player whose path to the pros was undone by a wrongful imprisonment and ultimate exoneration. An all-American high-school football player committed to USC by his junior year, Banks’ life was upended in 2002 when falsely accused of rape. Despite furiously maintaining his innocence, Brian was nonetheless railroaded through the system and sentenced to a decade of prison and parole. Ultimately, with the help of the California Innocence Project, Bank’s conviction was overturned in 2012 and he ultimately achieved his NFL dream with the Atlanta Falcons’ pre-season.”

Tryouts will be Friday, October 6th with callbacks on Saturday, October 7th.

FOOTBALL TRYOUT INFORMATION

We will be holding our tryout for football players on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6th, with callbacks on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7th. If you are selected, you will potentially rehearse on Oct 10th and 11th, and shoot on Oct 12th, 13th, and 16th, depending on the team you are on. (Subject to change) Hopefully, you have some flexibility with your current boss, teacher, family, etc, regarding the schedule. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

You must be 18 or older by October 6th. This has nothing to do with skill level, but labor laws. 

You must be willing to be a local hire in the Memphis area, which means you are responsible for your own travel, lodging, transportation, etc.

If selected, will be paid. Rehearsals are $175 and Shoot is $250 for the day.

If you are not selected to be an on-field player, you could potentially still be a part of the film. We will pass on your information to Extras Casting. They will be looking for bench players, coaches, officials, fans, etc.

LOCATION TRYOUT:

Booker T. Washington High School
715 S Lauderdale St
Memphis, TN 38126

Be sure to look at the map for parking instructions.

You will check in with us, warm up, and then have an on field tryout. If you are selected for a callback, you will return to the field later in the day. 

WHAT TO BRING:

You should wear athletic clothes and cleats. You do not need any football pads. You should also bring water.

TRYOUT TIME:

We are staggering the tryout times in order to get everyone through as quickly and smoothly as possible. Please arrive according to the first letter of your last name. Ex: My last name is Sheldon, so I’m going to arrive at 12:00pm, check in, warm up, and then dominate. :) If you cannot make your scheduled time, please arrive between 10:30am-12:00pm. We’ll try to get you through as soon as we can.

A-G - 10:30AM
H-P - 11:15AM
Q-Z - 12:00PM

We will assign you a running number and we will take your picture. There is a participation release that needs to be filled out. Please print it out, sign it, and bring it with you to the tryout. This will help us tremendously, so we can get on the field (where we all want to be!) as soon as we can. If you do not have access to a printer, we’ll have copies for you to fill out.

If you make it through the first day of tryouts, you will be invited back on Saturday morning for Callbacks at 9am.

The second link will allow you to confirm your attendance at the tryout. Please confirm your attendance- we also like to see how well you follow directions!
