Looking for Sherlock
Film student Carter deLaat filming web series this summer
Carter deLaat.jpg. Carter deLaat is filming a five-part series of webisodes based on Sherlock Holmes. Auditions are being held in the coming weeks for three roles.
After wrapping up his second year of studies at Humber College, Carter deLaat of Beaverton is filming a series of five 'webisodes' over the summer featuring the legendary detective.
While Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's creation has appeared on screen more than 250 times -- worthy of a Guiness World Record as the most portrayed literary human character in film and television -- Mr. deLaat is hoping to bring something new to the table.
"It's a comedic look at the domestic side of Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. John Watson," he said.
He's holding auditions for the roles of Holmes, Watson and landlady, Mrs. Hudson, May 1 and May 8 at the Beaverton Town Hall from 7 to 9 p.m.
Filming is slated for June with the premiere scheduled for July, when it will be uploaded to the Beaverton Town Hall Players website.
