Casting Call

‘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

Characters:

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.

Tentative filming dates are mid/late November to Early December

All Roles are Open Ethnicity

All filming in Charleston, SC

Food will be provided

Please email cthulhucorps04@gmail.com if you are interested in one of the roles and enclose headshots and I will send sides to read and instructions.
