First and foremost, Aaron-Ashmore.com would like to wish a very happy belated birthday to Aaron and Shawn! I was out of town and wasn't able to update last week over their actual birthday.
Tonight is the US Premiere for The Shrine at Mann's Chinese in Hollywood as part of the Screamfest Festival. The screening is in a half hour and a few tickets still remain if you're in the area! I have also added a new interview with Aaron and director Jon Knautz to the press section.
In more exciting news, Aaron has a new film, Servitude, and you can win a walk-on role!.
We've all had that one terrible job in the service industry that didn't seem to give us anything except minimum wage and headaches - That is until now. Maple Pictures is inviting anybody who currently works in the food and beverage service industry to enter for their chance to win a walk-on cameo role in the upcoming waiter-rebellion comedy, SERVITUDE through a new contest.
The film comes from comedy director Warren Sonoda and script-writer Michael Sparaga who are both ex-waiters themselves who want to pay back to the soldiers of the service industry by offering them a potential role. To enter the contest, simply create a 'confessional-style' video of yourself (ie. you speaking directly to camera) where you tell the public about the BEST or WORST DAY or CUSTOMER or SITUATION you ever experienced working in the industry. Then, post your video on the movie website by October 15th for the public to view and vote for their favourites. The ten videos with the most votes by October 22nd will make the TOP TEN which will be decided by a panel of judges who will announce the winners on October 29th.
The film Stars Joe Dinicol (Passchendale), John Bregar (Jack of Diamonds), Linda Kash (Best in Show), Aaron Ashmore (Smallville) and Degrassi's Lauren Collins, but most importantly - it could also star YOU. So head over to www.servitudemovie.com and follow the link to the 'CAMEO CASTING CALL CONTEST' and be sure to tell your friends and co-workers to vote for you and enter for their chance to win a trip for two to the movie premiere.
