A writer struggling with writer’s block finds help for his story as well as himself when he goes to a park.
CASTING THESE ROLES:
THE WRITER- (Age 25-35)
He’s our protagonist struggling with major writer’s block. He’s reminiscent of Joel Barish from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; more of thinker than a speaker. However, once you mention something he likes, it’s tough to shut him up. The writer is very pessimistic towards himself. This is often why he has trouble with writing. It’s a safe guess that he’s never really believed in himself.
THE BOY- (Age 9-13)
A boy who helps the writer with his writer’s block. The boy is very easy to talk to because he’s usually the one starting conversations.
Other roles, minor and extra will be cast
Extra roles include a couple and a middle aged man.

SPECIAL NOTES FOR AUDITION:
NESA Cinema, a college preparatory School located in San Antonio, Texas is currently casting for our latest project we will be shooting in the Winston-Salem area for a short film entitled “Life @ 11.” Meals and copies of the film will be provided if cast. This is a non-union film, but SAG actors may apply and still work for meals and copies of the film as well.
NESA’s Cinema program offers a comprehensive hands-on experience for students on the art and science of this collaborative art. Students learn about the history and function of cinema and animation, film production techniques, film scripting and composition. Our filmmakers produce works for presentation in national-level competitions. Advanced students research, write, direct and edit documentaries, fiction films, and animation pieces.
Our films have been featured in film festivals such as Sundance, Austin Film Festival, SXSW, New Vistas in Media, Gong Shorts, Josiah Film Festival and many more.
