Seeking actors to pose for still photo shoots in costume. These photographs will serve as reference imagery to develop a series of drawings and paintings intended for publication in an illustrated edition of The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. More information about the project is included below.

I am currently designing costumes & props, and planning to construct these with the assistance of BYU students majoring Illustration, Theatre & Film. Casting characters must be completed first, to determine costume measurements and build them to fit the actors/models.

Actors will be paid for their time on the project, thanks to a grant from the Laycock Endowment for Creative Collaboration in the Arts. I will work with actors to schedule costume fittings and photo shoots based on your availability, as needed in May – August 2019.

The first phase of the project will focus on developing illustrations for 5 to 10 key scenes from the first volume in the series, The Book of Three. These finished illustrations will be presented to the publisher as proof of concept, part of a pitch to secure a commission to complete the remaining 50-100 illustrations for the five-volume series in sequence. More information will be provided to actors/models receiving callback invitations.

Please include the following details in your application:

- first and last name
- phone number
- email address
- height
- which character(s) you would be interested in being considered for (see character descriptions)
