LOGLINE:

A couple drives out to the middle of nowhere for a peaceful trip away from the city when something unexpected happens to one of them. With no one around to help them, they are thrust into a descending spiral of survival.

CASTING THESE ROLES:

MICHAEL (24-28) grew up in the country, but now lives in a big
city. His father owns a ranch but no longer lives
there and asks his son to go check on something
locked in a shed. He brings his girlfriend with
him to make it a more romantic trip.

SARAH (23-26) is Michael’s girlfriend. She is a city girl, but is an
outdoors type of girl. She agrees to go on this
trip with him, but doesn’t realize how much of a
nightmare it is going to be. It is a
psychologically demanding role, as well as
physical. She should be at least able to physically
drag a body across 50 yards. We will be stopping
every few minutes, so there will be plenty of
pauses and rests in between the 50 yards.

CREW POSITIONS NEEDED:

SOUND TECHNICIAN with equipment if possible, if not we can figure
it out ahead of time.

Please wear comfortable clothing in which you can move. Bring your resume, headshot (if you have one). The audition will be held outdoors in a fenced area, there are seats. Improvisation is encouraged.

OTHER NOTES:

A demo reel would be greatly appreciated, but is not necessary for consideration.

The film is essentially dramatic, but there is a hint of absurdity and the bittersweet. So we welcome any creativity on the part of the actors.
