Because of a rebate program, more and more movies are being filmed in Minnesota. And one of them is looking for local talent, to help them fill their roles.

Strange Nature is an eco-thriller based on the unsolved problem of mutated frogs in Minnesota. 

Executive Producer Jim Ojala is from Duluth. He did an interview via Skype, from out in Hollywood. "We have a lot of speaking parts we're trying to cast locally. And it's not just extras. We have a couple of principal roles we're looking for. Anyone with theater experience, or if you think you might have what it takes for a film, come and try out!"

The film's casting director, Jeffery Passero, will be in Duluth July 9-10th. The auditions will be taped so Ojala can watch them. 

The filming will actually take place in August, in rural Itasca County.
