Mahogani Media is taking on the world of independent film-making in 2015.  Owner Kristi Woodard is putting on her Director's hat for her first short film, to be shot in Shreveport, LA this coming May.  

Though principle casting is pretty much done (announcements coming soon), we still have some additional roles to fill ...  

So we're doing a virtual CASTING CALL!   

 

  • Are you an aspiring actor/actress interested in being part of an indie film that will be submitted to upcoming film festivals?
  • Or maybe you're not an aspiring actress, but you would like to be an extra in a film? 
  • Are in or willing to travel to Shreveport, LA
  • Are you will to donate your talent for little or no pay? (Just being upfront, our budget is low but you will be fed!)
