Sacramento casting company seeks talent for feature film to be filmed in Jackson

Northern California's Acting and Film Community Continues to Burgeon as Local Sacramento Casting Director Sally Forcier of Forcier Casting Seeks Talent for SAG Feature Film Production Notorious Nick, Filming in Jackson, CA in October 2017.

SACRAMENTO, CA – 22 September 2017 – Sacramento and surrounding areas have enjoyed being featured locations in a stream of popular film projects as of late; a result of several talented native Sacramentans returning home for inspiration, and bringing a taste of Hollywood with them.

In 2016, writer and director Deon Taylor’s Meet the Blacks was released, which filmed in select locations in nearby Placerville County. Taylor returned shortly after to nearby El Dorado County to film another feature length film, Traffik, starring Omar Epps and Paula Patton.

Traffik, for which Forcier Casting handled all of the production’s Northern California casting needs, has recently been acquired by Lionsgate/Codeblack and is slated to release April 2018. Currently, Oscar-buzz is ramping up for Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird, slated to hit theaters November 10, 2017. Gerwig spoke of Sacramento as a "its own character" in terms of its importance to the film, and chose to shoot scenes in the East Sacramento neighborhood known as the Fabulous Forties.

According to Sally Forcier of Forcier Casting and Forcier Productions, the trend of filming in Sacramento and surrounding areas is not slowing down anytime soon.

“This is only the beginning,” says Forcier. “We have several exciting projects to come within the next year.”

Having been in the business of show business for the last 23 years, Sally has developed relationships with producers living locally in Northern California who simply want to work where they live, doing what they love. Dedicated to bringing more film projects to the area are producers Mark S. Allen and Howard Burd, who recently wrapped filming on their latest project, Apparition, to which Sally Forcier is credited as both Co-Producer and Casting Director.

With Apparition "in the can," as they say, this team has already hit the ground running on their next project, Notorious Nick, a SAG feature length film set to begin shooting in nearby Jackson, CA at the end of October 2017.

Principal casting for Notorious Nick is currently underway with Forcier Casting in Sacramento, with extra casting to commence at the beginning of October 2017. This is a great opportunity for both local actors and people new to the movie business to get a taste of Hollywood, without the six-hour drive! Local talent interested in being a part of the film Notorious Nick may submit their interest to Forcier Casting via e-mail with an attached headshot/photo and resume to: forciercasting@gmail.com.
