Lights. Camera. Action!--Highlights From Our First Round of Casting Calls

What's good folks? It's been a minute since our last update. No worries though, we haven't fallen off the radar. Team ZEMIRA has been busy working like bees on our end in an effort to secure cast members for this here project of ours.

So far we've had three casting calls and have auditioned over 80 actresses for the lead female roles. Actresses came from far and wide (some from as far as California) to show us their chops--and that they did.

Though the hours were long and at times we were faced with some tough callback decisions, we had an awesome time meeting all the wonderful ladies who came through to audition for us. Thanks again, ladies!

Still, our work is far from over. We have yet more people to meet and more casting calls to follow. Make sure to check the blog (and follow us on Twitter!)for updates. A special thanks goes out to our casting director, Ms. Chinyere Anyanwu (aka ChiChi), for sorting through tons of resumes and headshots in order to bring us some true gems.

We'd also like to thank the folks who came out to provide us with backup support during each casting--Christine, Andres, Jamila, Stephanie, Chantal, Ngozi--your help was greatly appreciated.
Until next time--MW.
