Director: Adam Ninyo
The film follows a young, alcoholic man as he returns to his hometown to murder the drunk driver who accidentally killed his family. Checking into his hotel, he finds a shared connection with the attendant, and commits an unforgivable act before confronting his family's killer.
Stylistically, the dialogue is very minimalist, with substantial room for improvisation. Actors who are capable of subtly emoting without speaking too much are preferred, as the pacing of the film will be very deliberate.
Seeking the following (Non-Union):
JOHN: (M, 20-25, 5'8 - 6'2) - Strung out, cynical with a nasty disposition, but not unintelligent. He is determined and morally driven to vengeance, but has no idea what to do with his life outside of that.
ATTENDANT (M, 20, 25, 5'6-6'0) - Over-eager, sorta nerdy and awkward, but highly observant. He desperately wants to leave behind the town and feels as though he has something to prove.
SCOTT (M, 35+, any height) - A normal guy who made a very bad decision without any malice. He is haunted by what he has done, world-weary and scared, but ready to accept the fatal consequences of his actions.
Shoots early April. 2-day shoot. No Pay, but copy of your work.
