IDREAMMACHINE SEEKS BAND SUBMISSIONS FOR MUSIC ORIENTED COMEDY, BILLBOARD, EASTERN PA

iDreamMachine is Casting a feature, that is part of Zeke Zelker’s transmedia experience Billboard an Uncommon Contest for Common People!. Bands should submit their music to become a part of the station's play list. Do not use anything already produced by anyone else that will infringe upon someone's copyright whether it be music, video, pictures, etc. The movie is about Casey who inherited a struggling radio station, WTYT 960. To bring the station out of the ratings basement, he devises a plan to host a billboard-sitting contest, where four lucky people will live on a catwalk, eight feet wide by forty feet long, in front of a billboard to win a mobile home and “nine-sixty” thousand dollars. Obviously this is a comedy with some dramatic elements. It’s a cross between Napoleon Dynamite and Hands on a Hard Body. What makes this project so unique is Zeke’s approach to telling the story, by creating a story world. The project is underway in the form of a virtual radio station, WTYT960.com, where over 320 bands have submitted their music to become a part of the station’s play list. We’re seeking SAG and non-SAG actors. We’ll be producing the project under the SAG New Media and Low Budget agreements, with a no favored nations clause. The reason for two different agreements is that we’re creating in uncharted territory, using various medias to tell the story and we want to employ a blend of established and undiscovered talent.
