Casting Call Details
Norma, 40, is a not-so-great psychic who had to give up her budding acting career in order to raise her daughter after her husband disappeared. She smokes too much, drinks too much, and blames other people too much. Is terrified that her now 18 year old daughter may locate her estranged father and dig up skeletons Norma would rather keep under wraps.
Two sets of wardrobe: 1) Work clothes: long flowing dress, bandana, quasi-gypsy look; 2) Dress clothes: Conservative skirt, jacket, and shoes, as if going to a job interview.
Amy is an eighteen year old girl who grew up without her father. She sets out to find him, only to discover that he is a homeless war veteran who doesn't remember her. Amy must deal with her own frustrations, as well as her father's illness, in her efforts to re-connect with her old man.
This project will be shot ultra low budget non-union with a small cast and a small crew. Shooting 12 days in August. Meals, copy, credit, and some pay will be provided. The film will be shot and edited on digital formats and submitted to festivals as a feature.
The tight shooting schedule will require actors who can arrive on set and be ready to go. Some of your own wardrobe may be needed due to budget limitations. Crew must be willing to do some guerilla style shooting (no special effects or pyrotechnics.)
