Your Chance to be a Zombie!
Recent Clayton State graduate Anissa Matlock is organizing an audition for the final role in an independent film called "Welcome to the Bubs," a zombie/apocalypse comedy (how’s that for a combination?)
Matlock is inquiring of Clayton State students who may be interested for a young female character, or who would like to participate as a zombie – they’ll need nearly 100 of the walking dead. The breakdowns and instructions for students to submit their applications for the auditions – the deadline for submissions is Friday, June 7 -- are as follows:
The role is for a young female - age eight to 17 - any ethnicity. Older actresses can audition, but MUST look young. Zee is the daughter of a scientist and she is carrying an essential element that will help to domesticate the undead. (C’mon, haven’t you ALWAYS wanted to domesticate the undead?) Personality is a MUST.
Interested actresses should contact Matlock at email@example.com with the "Zee" in the subject line. Please include basic information about yourself, including: name, age, height, phone number and preferred email address. Matlock will also need a headshot or shoulders-up snapshot.
Those selected to audition will be notified by phone or email and will be asked to meet with the director and a cast member for a cold reading. If potential Zees do not fit the part, they’ll be asked if they would be interested in a zombie role.
"Zombies" All types needed!
There will also be some "Hero Zombies" that will have direct interaction with the main cast. They must be willing to wear latex applications and a good bit of fake blood. They should be comfortable with stage combat, and must attend ALL rehearsals as they will be getting killed with blunt objects, rather than being shot from a distance and will need to practice with the cast.
Interested zombies should contact Josh Milligan by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a recent snapshot or headshot and note any make-up allergies.
Also, for those planning to audition, the one thing you never tell a zombie is, “you look like death warmed over.”
Although audition dates are flexible, Matlock says they are likely to happen on the second weekend in June. Further details for the actual audition will be sent to the actors selected to audition.
Filming is taking place between mid-June and August this year. Actors/zombies selected may be asked to return for the next episode. This production is being filmed in three parts and may be released as webisodes.

SBDC Offering "Understanding Workplace Contracts" Class, June 14
The Clayton State University Small Business Development Center (SBDC), partnering with the College of Business at Clayton State, will be offering an “Understanding Workplace Contracts” class on Friday, June 14, from 9 a.m. to noon, in room T152 of the College of Business.
The class will be taught by Clayton State Business Law Professor Dr. Judith Ogden.
This program, designed to guide small businesses through the maze of contract concerns, will address many contract related issues; such as whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee, whether you created a contract by writing a handbook or company policy, and whether employees should be made to sign non-compete or confidentiality agreements.
The registration fee is $69, although current Clayton State MBA students receive a $20 discount. Contact Heather Chaney at (678) 466-5100 for the discount code.

Campus Life, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Clayton State Community is excited to welcome the 2013/14 academic year and are prepared to ensure that our student organizations are ready to lead the charge in achieving the many goals of the University’s Strategic Plan, such as creating an outstanding educational experience that simulates intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and innovation and fostering learning that engages students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the greater community.
In order to do so, ALL recognized student organizations are required to attend RESET 2013, scheduled for Monday, June 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Activities Center Ballroom. Each recognized student organization is required to send either the president or vice president of their organization to attend RESET 2013.
