‘Lady in the Swamp’
My name is Michael LeaMond, a film student, looking to submit a casting call to recruit for my short film ‘Lady in the Swamp’. Here is the submission:
The troubled teen Aris must make a life or death decision to deal with the crushing expectations of her peers. Inspired by The Sound and the Fury
Aris: A free spirit of a girl. Early 20s college freshman who is struggling to find her place.
Dad: A grizzled soldier, mid 40s over 6ft, on his way to retirement. Always dictates how people should be.
Detective Grimes: A 30 year old detective trying to piece his way through this mystery.
Dylan: A lanky awkward early 20s college student with a rebellious streak. Very much anti-establishment type.
Henry: Well groomed early 20s college student with a preppy appearance. He embraces the expectations his parents put on him and believes others should as well.
Janet: Woman in her mid 30s with conservative appearance (traditional nuclear home mother) who supports her husband’s spartan parenting style.
Melanie: Brunette early 20s college freshman who left her small town behind to make something of her life. Holds a soft spot for our missing Aris.
