Seeking actors to audition for the following roles:
JESS REEVE (20) - female lead, hispanic. An aspiring director who is blinded by her own ambition. Jess is a film student who feels entitled to opportunities beyond her reach. She is confidant in herself, her goals, and her lofty dreams, which often comes across as arrogant and self-righteous.
LOREN BAILEY (19) - female lead. Jess’s best friend and foil. An enthusiastic film student who sees the world through rose colored glasses. Flirtatiously sweet and well-meaning, the concerns and challenges of her friend’s lives are sometimes lost on her. She lives her life one day at a time, with vibrancy and optimism.
PROFESSOR RUSKIN (70s) - male supporting. A wise film professor who wants the best for his students. Quirky, thoughtful and a bit peculiar, he is a man of many faces and lessons, although not all his students will realize them.
HOMELESS MAN - male day player. A free-spirited, free-loving homeless man. He chooses to see the best and most beautiful aspects of life in spite of his situation. He’s the kind of man who will sing both his and your troubles away.
The role Loren will need to be available to shoot mid-April in NYC, and the roles of Jess and Loren will need to be available to shoot in NYC and San Antonio in the Summer (travel and lodging to San Antonio will be provided).
Jess, a filmmaker going to school in New York, must decide if she will sacrifice her career and return home to San Antonio, TX to care for her younger brother, Scott, following their mother’s unexpected and untimely death.
Greater Fools, an interfamily drama, is a non-Union, collaborative student hour-long TV Pilot. This is a non-paying job, but actors will be provided with a copy of the finished pilot.
For consideration, please send all headshots, resumes and reels to the Casting Director, Cole Bannick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
