Casting Call for Short Film “The Maid” [Dubai, United Arab Emirates] #casting

Posted March 31, 2015

PLOT SUMMARY: Our main and only character is a house maid for a well-to-do family who she sees as her own. Each week in an empty house we see her as a perfectionist who takes pride in her work. However, when she starts to see changes in the messes left behind, she begins to unravel. Instead of her usual duties of dusting family photos and picking up children’s toys, she finds herself cleaning up the debris of another woman in her space. And it’s war.

SEEKING TALENT
We are looking for an actress (age 30-35) who can carry this short film (estimating about 15-20 minutes) and make it something we can’t take our eyes off of. It’s a wonderful opportunity for a character study and portfolio piece that has elements of drama and comedy. Our character has to be able to pull off someone who is incredibly nurturing, devoted, maybe slightly OCD and just unhinged enough to take this battle between herself and the slightly too far.
