Casting director Ivan Gonzalez and director Michael Stevantoni are holding auditions June 13, June 14, and June 16 in Los Angeles for their new independent feature film, “Salton Sea.” All lead and supporting roles are being cast, including supporting role Judith, for which they need a spritely young actor. Daughter to lead roles Brian and Ramona, Judith is a girl who has a “rough and tumble attitude” thanks to her time growing up in a desert town. A collector of snakes and a lover of pink, she likes her hometown and digs her heels in when Brian decides to upend the family and start over in Washington, D.C. The right candidate will be a 7- to 12-year-old actor of any ethnicity. The SAG-aftra minimum of $140 per day will be met for hired talent in addition to all travel costs. Rehearsals will begin this summer in Los Angeles and the film will shoot Aug.
