  1. I can authentically portray a wide variety of American Civil War impressions of enlisted men for the Federal and Confederate armies. I own multiple firearms from the period, both reproduction and original. I have been in three filmings before, including the Kennesaw Mountain national battlefield park and the Untold Civil War series.

  2. Been some projects in the past, helped with the movie Glory,Gettysburg, and Gods and Generals, worked the history channel on civil war terror episode-tape. Been on some smaller productions in the past , can provide my own impression s for civil war era civilian,military- both North and south. Officer or no- or private. East or western looks. Also Mexican war union impression. And also do 1812 war and pre war looks,federal period,and rev.war military too. Am willing to do speaking roles as needed, just want to help in anyway.

    • The following advice is to help you… if you have NO experience and you won’t drive a hour and a half to get to work in this industry, whether it’s as an extra or as a principal actor, then my suggestion to you is to move on….This industry is not for you.

      I’ve driven hours to work in film/tv – I’ve even paid for my own hotel room on numerous occasions – just so that I’m on time and ready to work. There were times, where the whole crew worked pass midnight, in mud, and with temperatures in the teens – and can I tell you, without hesitation, it was no fun and I hated it – but you take the good with the bad.

      Just the other day, it was sunny – around 65- 70 degrees – a beautiful day! That’s the good…! Suggestions: take any role you can, (with in reason,), build your acting resume, your confidence and your skills, and before you know it, you’re getting parts that will astonished you.

      And lastly: I’m no William Shakespeare when it comes to to writing (I’m sure you’ll find some mistakes with what I just wrote) but before you send out a statement for everyone to read and especially, a casting director or producer etc., I would have someone read your statement first – It’s pretty bad!

      Just a thought!

  3. Hello Guy. I recently worked with Brad Barnett on an episode of “The West”. He forwarded your information to me. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with you. I’m currently working as a Core Background Artist and Featured Extra on ” OUTSIDERS “. It is set to air January 2016 on WGN. Please review the links I provided at your convenience. Thanks so much for your time.

  4. Though I have no experience. I think the next time you are in the Winchester area would be better for me. Richmond is too far away. Just to try but if I follow your page I will see am I correct?

  7. I have previous experience portraying John Wilkes Booth on “Secrets of the Arsenal,” which was the principal speaking role for that segment. In addition to firearms experience, I am a former professional equestrian. I am about two hours north of Richmond, however I would be happy to travel for this opportunity.
