SHOOTING DATES: OCT/NOV dates TBD
LOCAL AUDITIONS:(By invitation from submissions)
*SAG/AFTRA Short (pending)
Seeking NEW FACES AND BODYBUILDERS:
TIM: A VERY BUFF bodybuilder-type man late 20’s- late 30s. His face doesn’t match his body. He doesn’t have an intimidating look, he’s just super muscular.
BILL: (38-60) An unkempt, unhealthy man (perhaps overweight) who has spent most of life alone. You look at him and feel a bit sorry for him. Even the way he walks seems to reflect is lack of self worth. He’s not a mean, he’s just a habitually depressed/disinterested person.
SANDY: A 50’s-60’s mother of an older man-child. The situation has caused her to become a bit unhinged and rundown. She can naturally shift between vulnerable and desperate to over protective and self-righteous. (Looking for subtle, nuanced performances.)
