Notice

WELCOME to #Team8Bucks!
 
We’re working extremely hard behind the scenes planning and coordinating the next few months. Most of you read the main character roles. During auditions, we weren’t looking for roles specifically, we were looking at your personality, charisma, and aura. We based our decision on your persona.
 
In the next few days, we will publish shooting dates, your roles, NDAs to sign, contracts to sign, discussing pay, and inviting you to GroupMe app for communication. Install GroupMe on your mobile device.
You will be invited into two GroupMe groups: 8 Bucks Cast and 8 Bucks Notices.
 
  • 8 Bucks Cast is for updates, changes, and information relating to cast.
  • 8 Bucks Crew is for the same, for crew. If you are crew and cast, you will be in this group as well.
  • 8 Bucks Notices is for cast and crew, to be used during production for last minute notices and information.
 
The weekend of June 26, we will schedule a Zoom meeting with everyone to get up to date information and Q&A.
 
We will be calling each of you individually over the next few weeks.
