Casting Call for Proof of Concept Short for Historical Mystery/Romance Feature in North Carolina

Title: “Laura” Proof of Concept

Based on America’s first highly-publicized crime of passion, “Laura” is the true tale of Tom Dooley, as seen through the eyes of Laura Foster, the tragic figure at the heart of this tale. Combining elements of historical romance and mystery, the film follows the last week in Laura’s life, as we get to know her, and the people around her. Through it, we’ll ask the question: why would anybody want to harm this young, frail but beautiful girl from the foothills of North Carolina.
