img_0004

We’ve received a lot of great submissions so far. This makes our task difficult. But some of you have been asking some very good questions that we want to address in this post. So here are some of the frequently asked questions.

  1. I don’t have a demo reel. Is there something else that I can send you?
    • Demo reels are great! But sometimes, we just want to see that you have the ability to create a character. Some people can accomplish this through vines. Maybe you have a link to a film that you’ve been in. Or, you can also send us a video our yourself performing a two minute monologue .
  2. When is the deadline to send you my information?
    • The producers are gathering on April 25th to make some final decisions on the actors who have made a submission. We will take submissions up until April 24th.
  3. I really want to be part of this production but I don’t want to be an actor in it. Can I still help out?
    • Absolutely! Contact us via our contact page to find out how you can help.
  4. I’ve been in a Tatum Pictures film before. Do I still need to submit something?
    • No need to! Chances are, we know who you are and know what you can do. Just drop us a line and let us know that you’re interested!
  5. When do you plan on starting your shooting schedule.

New Fan Film! Looking For Demo Reels!


Tatum Pictures is proud to announce an interim production that will be the next fan film. The makers of “Indiana Jones and the Legend of Bimini” will present the first in a potential trilogy; Star Wars: Scramble on Uylara. Production on the fist chapter is slated to begin in late June and conclude in July. We will be looking for actors to fill the following roles:

DAIN ARCHER: (30s – 40s) Commander in the rebel alliance. A brilliant fighter pilot who was once in the Empire’s employ. Compelled to do the right thing, he dedicates his life to the great rebellion.  Traditional hero type.

ISABEL FODOR: (30S – 40S) The adopted child of the Prime Minister of Uylara. She is a self taught Force sensitive who is currently in hiding from the Empire. She is normally armed with a small blaster and lightsaber.

SAN RELVIC: (30s – 40s) Commander in the Empire. He used to be best friends with Dain for many years. Enough to consider him a brother. He has very high aspirations of rising through the ranks of the Empire. He has a hard emotional exterior.

ZULAN DREX: (30s) Spent most of his younger years with Isabel. He is also a Force sensitive. There is a lot of anger and feeling of abandonment in him.

GIBRAN CAPIT: (20s) Young, wise-cracking pilot in the rebellion. He has served under Dain’s command for some time. So much so that they are friends. However, he is best friends with Sena. He’s a little cocky and often doesn’t take things seriously. A bit of a rule breaker.

SENA ISOD: (30s) A very skilled pilot in the rebellion. She’s very brash and very sarcastic. She’s the Yin to Gibran’s Yang. Although the two have never been romantically involved.

OTHER SUPPORTING ROLES

PADMON LEVEN: (60s – 70s) Prime Minister of Uylara and adopted father to Isabel. He is a soft and gentle being. Has opted to keep Uylara out of the civil war.

CAPTAIN BYRNAC: (40s – 50s) Current captain of the star destroyer Avenger. San Relvic is his first officer. He’s an opportunist and will stop at nothing to get ahead.

We’ll be looking for demo reels or links to other films. You can submit them here! Don’t have a demo reel? Contact us for options!

It’s Baaaaack!!

The Underworld – The Series Returns to TatumPictures.com!

Season2

For those of you that have been following the website over the years may remember our internet series. It was filmed between 2004 – 2006 and made it online in 2006. This dramatic series was loosely based on the original Tatum Pictures film, The Underworld and even inspired the follow up The Return Home. The series follows two brothers; Lonny and Chaz Hutchins, whose mother is murdered as a result of underworld ties. To seek protection, Lonny and his brother make a deal with underworld mobster, Lucius Madsen, and embark on a journey that they never expected.

Underworld

The return of this series marks the kickoff of a section that we’d like to refer to as “Classic Tatum Pictures“. A section that showcases some of our earlier works. The Underworld – The Series is an eleven episode series and each episode is less than 30 minutes. So you can easily binge in an afternoon!

We’ll be adding more to our classic section over the next few weeks. So stay tuned!
