SEEKING TALENT
Halfine
Role Type: Lead
Gender: Female
Age Range: 18-32
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
Media required from applicants: Headshot/Photo
Role Description: lead role; all races welcome, especially looking for south asian/middle eastern/east asian but don’t be discouraged if you feel the role is right for you; (looking in age range of 18-32, anyone that can convincingly play a late teens/early 20s woman), skinny/skrawny/average, alternative (goth/emo/normcore/dyed hair/tattoos etc.) looks are welcome. In terms of gender, the role is written for a female but anyone (non-binary etc.) who feels like this role is strong for them can try out. This is a SUBTLE performance. Must be able to portray someone lost in regret, quiet desperation, and can show anxiety/dread in their performance.

Alex
Role Type: Supporting
Gender: Female
Age Range: 18-32
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
Media required from applicants: Headshot/Photo
Role Description: Halfine’s best friend; all races welcome; (looking in age range of 18-32, anyone that can convincingly play a late teens/early 20s woman), skinny/skrawny/average. In terms of gender, the role is written for a female but anyone (non-binary, male, etc.) who feels like this role is strong for them can try out. Alex died a year prior to the beginning of the story. Actress would be challenged with playing a character who deep down loves her best friend but in the film is not the real Alex, but a corrupted manifestation. A subtle performance, must show quiet desperation, apathetic discipline, seething hatred all at different times.

Rania
Role Type: Supporting
Gender: Female
Age Range: 18-36
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
Media required from applicants: Headshot/Photo, Audio Reel
Role Description: You may send in a tape for this role. All races welcome. This small but important role will be a voice-over, so age doesn’t necessarily matter, but voice quality and performance do. Needs to perform a apologetic, melancholic toned voice mail that is reminiscing and nostalgia. She’s trying to talk Halfine, the protagonist, for the first time since the traumatic event that occurred a year ago.

Counselor
Role Type: Supporting
Gender: N/A
Age Range: 25-55
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
Role Description: Day players also considered. You may send in a tape for this role. All races welcome. This small but important role is the counselor, who appears at the end of the film, to conduct the “real” evaluation. The current draft this character has 2 lines. Must deliver authority but gentle concern in the performance.

COMPENSATION
PAY: Non-paid
OTHER: Film Credit, Copy of Film, Meals, Snacks/Beverages
NOTES: SAG welcome, if you are, we can negotiate a low pay. Film credit, meals, and snacks provided. As well as life long friends and contacts. The film I think will be a great piece for any actor/actresses reel so don’t be discouraged by our small scope and budget.
