Want to Be Part of Book of Mormon Video Series? Visit Casting.ChurchofJesusChrist.org
The LDS Motion Picture Studio is casting talent for the Church’s video library depicting scenes from the Book of Mormon. Members who are seasoned actors, amateurs, or those with no acting experience are invited to visit casting.ChurchofJesusChrist.org for more detailed information.
Filming for the project began in June 2017 at the LDS Motion Picture Studio’s south campus near Goshen, Utah (located about one hour south of Salt Lake City). Because production will continue in various North American locations through 2022, casting will be ongoing over the next several years.
The multiyear project will provide material for individual and family viewing, Sunday and seminary classroom viewing, missionary efforts, and other projects. The first videos are scheduled to be released later in 2018.
An official letter was sent January 29 to ward and stake leaders encouraging them to invite members to participate.
