When you’re down on your luck and there is no one to run too, family is always there to make things work out. Whether you’re feuding or fighting, you still make everything alright. That’s where the Garrett family stands. Battling life’s obstacles and raising children on an average pay schedule will make you become stressed, loaded with agony, balled up with hatred and devious ways, and you lose hope sometimes, but with family by your side you have weight of the world lifted off of you.

Family Still Matters TV Series will deliver what other TV shows aren’t such as, love, compassion, discipline, education, and most of all the power of unity.

Tia Garrett and her husband Charles Garrett are not your ordinary family. They are average though. Charles Garrett loses his wife in a car accident and he felt like he was weighed down with with two children DaJohn and Jerome Garrett. He met a lady during a counseling meeting who helped him get through his battle of having a deceased wife and leaving him with two children to raise on his own.

Charles Garrett found a young lady by the name of Tia Garrett, a middle aged Caucasian lady who had a daughter named Samantha. They challenged a lot of hatred and envious controversy being that he met and re-married a caucasian lady.

One thing you cannot stop is a family that prays together, because when you pray together you stay together.

Cast/Crew/Location Calls for Short Film “Flesh Computer” [Los Angeles] #casting #crewcall #locationcall

lesh_computer_sketch_4color

Posted April 27, 2013

PROJECT TITLE: Flesh Computer
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: SAG
CATEGORY: Short Film
DIRECTOR: Ethan Shaftel
PRODUCTION COMPANY: easyAction
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: June 6-9 2013
SHOOTING LOCATION: Los Angeles

SYNOPSIS:

We are a team of industry professionals shooting a passion project: a visually stylized and intellectually mind-bending short film, set in a dark future populated by organic machines. Very high production value with award winning production-design team, cinematographer, and visual effects. Already partially cast with some amazing performers, we are seeking a few additional actors to bring the world to life! (Not a huge paycheck but a very high quality cinema piece for your portfolio, and a short shooting schedule)

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

SKINNY – MALE, 13-30 years old — Mean, like a mongrel dog is mean. Kicked down his whole life; fed scraps, if at all. Now Skinny is MAD. Looking to kick someone else down for a change. Looking for power, looking for a moment of control. Cruel by nature and stick thin; bad skin, bad teeth, bad hair, BAD EVERYTHING. If this sounds like you, then I’m scared! But if this sounds like a role you could play, then please apply!

CHUNKY – MALE, 13-30 years old — Chunky peers out at life through beady pig-eyes filled with mistrust and suppressed hurt. If he sees a cat get hit by a car, he laughs and snorts with glee, because that animal got what it deserved, what EVERYONE deserves. If a neighbor’s house burns down, Chunky is over the moon, gloating; his black heart joyful. Chunky stuffs his face, picks on the weak, and toadies to his tougher friend Skinny. If this sounds like you, then you are a disgusting human animal, but if this sounds like a role you could play, then PLEASE APPLY!

EMILY — FEMALE, 6-14 years old — Emily is curiosity itself, head craned back to watch the stars one minute, crawling in the dirt the next minute to see what the worms are doing. She’s a true innocent in a dangerous world, observing life she doesn’t understand. Our young actress must be comfortable in contacts, as she will be required to wear a standard colored contact in one eye for visual effects work (In the final film, Emily will appear to have one artificial eye that glows in the dark).

MATTHEW — MALE, 40-60 years old — Matthew is Emily’s father, and though he is a fascinating person while awake, in this film he is only ever seen fast asleep on the couch, snoring loudly and lost in his dreams, and unaware of the drama unfolding around him. Looking for a mature, unique face, years of history, deep lines. A large, solid, heavyset man, a father to depend on.

CREW POSITIONS NEEDED:

Production Designer — science fiction experience a plus
Wardrobe/Make up

LOCATIONS NEEDED:

Creepy Basement — large cement area, pipes and ducts a plus
Retro Apartment — living room with couch and TV
Apartment Hallway — drab and non-distinct, slightly industrial
