By Judy Harrison of the BDN Staff: BANGOR, Maine — Philip Kelley hasn’t decided exactly what he wants to do when he grows up, but he’s sure of what he wants to do this summer — be in a movie.
Kelley, 11, of Bangor was one of more than 30 people who auditioned Saturday for “Ramblin’ Round” a film to be shot between July 12 and Aug. 28 in Bangor, Dexter, Skowhegan and other locations in central Maine.
Casting director Allison Twardziak said Saturday that auditions also would be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. again today. People wanting to audition simply should show up prepared to read some dialogue from the script and to do a bit of improvising.
The film has 22 speaking parts for children between the ages of 7 and 16 and adults from 20 to 70, she said. “Ramblin’ Round” also has several scenes that will need extras without speaking parts.
Ryan M. Bennett, 23, of Pittsfield wrote the script and will co-direct the feature-length film. He already has produced a 22-minute short version of the movie.
The short film was described in a Bangor Daily News article in November as the story of a young inner-city man and woman struggling to find common romantic ground in both reality and a fantasy world they concoct in their shared imaginations. The two are connected by nothing but the string between tin-can phones, which they use to communicate across a dingy alleyway.
Sunday’s auditions are being held on the second floor of 193 Broad St.
L'Aperitif, Tapas Restaurant, Eurolounge and Bangor Travel Services also are located in the building.
