How To Make A Tiny Monte Cristo Sandwich
Ria Tobacowalla, prod.; Rachel Gordon, co-prod.
Casting two roles:
1. The Fiend (Supporting): Male, 25-35
Hailing from another dimension, the Fiend is here to keep Paul from trying too hard and failing, or making a fool of himself. Imagine the voice in the back of your head saying you’ll never get this role. That’s the Fiend “looking out” for you.
2. The Satyr (Supporting): 18-23
Guides visitors through the enchanted forest, so that they can find what they truly need. It’s just a job, though, you know? It doesn’t define her or anything. She’s really just a chill person who happens to have horns. Don’t make a big deal out of it. Looking for an actor 18 or older, who can play younger. Filmmaker states: "Despite my use of female pronouns, this role is open to non-binary or genderqueer actors as well as female actors. Cis male actors need not apply (my apologies for the imperfect listing options)."
