Audition Description

“The small town of Miller's End, Kentucky in the Fall of 1986 has been infected by something malevolent leaving several locals mutilated in horrific, unnatural ways. Sheriff Leslie Falk is desperate to solve the murders while keeping the town under control as a vengeful father becomes obsessed with finding the cause of the killings and bring them to an end. On a Dark and Bloody Ground is a Southern Gothic Horror Fairy Tale in the tradition of the campfire stories we remember from childhood that gave us that chill and made us scared to be in the dark."

Landed 2 movie roles + 2 other jobs within 3 months of joining Since joining Explore Talent you would not believe the responses I've been getting from directors, producers. The jobs I have landed and am getting ready to start filming are phenomenal. I've had the distinct pleasure of working on the sets of The Kingdom-starring Jamie Fox. Netherbeast Incorporated starring Robert Wagner, Darrell Hammond, Lori Singer, Dave Foley, Steve Burns and Judd Nelson. I also am planning to do a commercial for an International insurance company. I have also done some smaller roles as being in a movie called Life Room directed by Eric Ray and finally got up the confidence to do a stand up comedy routine at a local comedy club. I don't know what kind of special magic explore talent brings to those who decide to pursue their dreams but I do know now that your never too old and explore talent is just what you need to get the ball rolling.
