Any ethnicity.
Blithesome. Dreamer. Naive. Occasionally arrogant. Musical prodigy. Taylor hears music everywhere he goes. The earth is a symphony in his ears. He looks up to his brother Duncan like only a little brother can. He sees the best in Duncan and Rowan when they can’t see themselves very clearly.

Any ethnicity.
Happy. Out-going. Hopeless romantic. Naive. Madison might be overly excited about little things, particularly males, but she has a big heart and is always there for Rowan, even when Rowan denies needing anything at all. When Duncan comes along, she will do nearly anything to win his love.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Hello. I’m Bree Williams. I’m a 22-year old indie filmmaker. I have so far produced 3 projects, although two of those are still in pre-production, and one is in post-production. I am currently based in Missouri, but this summer, around August, I will be relocating to eastern North Carolina, near the Outer Banks, where I will be working on a series called Helm’s Curse. It’s a Christian-based mystery/drama. We will be releasing it on Vimeo.

Filming location is not set in stone yet, but it will be filmed near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Filming will begin autumn 2016 or spring 2017, depending on how quickly we can find our cast and crew.

The series is made up of 13 30-minute episodes. I am looking for a crew that is optimistic and passionate about this project, people who are fun to work with and are willing to make mistakes and work together to fix them and make this project great.
