PROJECT TITLE: The Big Picture

STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Short Film; Monologue with flashback (a comic strip acted out)
FORMAT: 35mm, Super 16mm, 16mm, HD, DV
DISTRIBUTION: Public access
PRODUCER: Trisha Barron
WRITER: Trisha Barron
SHOOTING LOCATION: Atlanta Georgia

SYNOPSIS:

What’s happening here is Mama is (somewhere, to be determined) talking to the audience. The goal is to introduce the main players and to let us know how she thinks and her motivation behind the concept of the Big Picture. The ideal of looking beyond what’s right in front of you. She is a mother and very serious about that role, she owns a bookstore, she has a sense of humor, a little dry but funny, she is very nurturing to all. She is not a Madea but maybe her calm, smart, classy sister. Here is a link to her background and some strips. http://jerrycraft.net/mamasboyz.html

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Tyrell
Tyrell is my oldest son, he’s 18 years old. Some would say he’s kind of shy. He is a senior in high school. I think he wants a girlfriend.

Yusef
Yusef is my 16 year old. I hate say it but he is more popular and more athletic and taller than his brother Tyrell. He loves sneakers and clothes. He’s pretty popular with the girls. It may seem he’s more independent than his older brother, but Tyrell is his best bud.

Grandpa
My father lives upstairs. He’s a retired chef. He likes to cook and listen to Jazz. I keep telling him he needs to change the way he cooks, like doing less frying and more baking. I’m working on it.

Uncle Gregg
Gregory Tisdale is my baby brother. The kids call him Uncle Greggo. He is 32 years old. He likes music, movies and video games as much as my sons, so of course he gets along well with Yusef and Tyrell. He owns a computer graphics and consulting company. I say he’s afraid of commitment and he’s cheap.

Keisha
Keisha helps me out in the bookstore, when she’s not in school. Keisha is the daughter that I never had. She is 18 years old like Tyrell. Keisha actually dated Tyrell for a very short time, but now they are just great friends. (Keisha strip coming soon)

Sara
Sara goes to school with Tyrell and Yusef. She’s a fashionista. She tells me she likes to take here moms old clothes and make them stylish, she calls it a retro look.. I believe she has a crush on Tyrell.

Sam
Sam goes to school with my sons. He loves baseball. He knows every stat about every team. He’s a walking database, well at least in the things he wants to be.

After being overworked at her thankless cubicle job in SF, 26 year old Emily decides to break away from the big city rat race to work on a northern California pot farm. However, her rejuvenating adventure soon spirals dangerously out of control and Emily must dig deep to overcome unforeseen drama.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

1. EMILY (LEAD), FEMALE, CAUCASIAN, AGE 23-30
She has always lived life by the rules but that has gotten her into debt, lonely, and tied to a tech startup job where she works ungodly hours. She’s beaten down and lacks a bit of self-confidence. Working on a pot farm gives her the chance to break free and experience life, all while earning cash that will help her afford grad school. But she’s got to dig deep to overcome the other challenges that present themselves in her time up north.

2. HANNAH, FEMALE, ETHNICALLY AMBIGUOUS, AGE 24-32
She’s friends with Emily. They met at an urban farm. She’s a bit of a free spirit but sometimes makes self-destructive decisions. She challenges Emily to step out of her shell but also relies on Emily’s stability.

Casting Call for Short Film “The Stupid Frenchman” [New York, NY] #casting

Posted October 3, 2013

PROJECT TITLE: The Stupid Frenchman
CLASSIFICATION: Student
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Short Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Director reel
PRODUCER: Nathaniel West
WRITERS: Anya Easkra, Nathaniel West
DIRECTOR: Anya Easkra
SHOOTING LOCATION: New York, NY

SYNOPSIS:

Student short comedy.
A modern variation of Anton Chekhov’s “The Stupid Frenchman” – a sensitive man’s inner monologue, as he observes his hefty restaurant neighbor gobble down multiple plates of food, that comes to an absurd and comical conclusion.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

1. The Sensitive Frenchman:
Male, Caucasian, 23-40 y/o
Thin, flexible and expressive body
Used to constant pleasantries, the Frenchman is sensitive to extremities. Utterly pompous and over-the-top, his communication and reactions are very physical – he “talks” with his body, making expressive gestures with exaggerated manners.

2. The Hefty Glutton:
Male, Caucasian, 30-50 y/o
Full-bodied (think John Goodman) aristocrat
Contrary to the name, the Glutton isn’t disgusting and doesn’t have an eating problem (or so he thinks). He looks clean, wears expensive clothing, has a stylish cut and, in general, is a very well put together gentleman. Authoritative and straight forward, he is simply having the first meal of his day, which is a little later than usual – the man is hungry.

3. Waiter (background)
Male, 20-40 y/o
Lean, with great posture
He is the perfect waiter, skillful in reading the wants of the customer and always ready to serve a high class consumer.

COMPENSATION: Non-paid

*Your fans are critical to your success. They will have the opportunity to assist you as you progress on the show – so it is crucial to have them cheering you on from the very beginning!

Further, we will be able to detect fraudulent followers …so you must be the “real deal” to even submit your audition.

1) (SHOW OR TELL) “Why Are Your Social Media Fans a perfect support team for you as you endeavor to win the million dollar prize?”

3) (TRUTH OR DARE) “I have a secret…!” *Tell us the truth about your secret or we dare you to demonstrate!
4) (PERFORMANCE OR PHYSICAL) “Are you artistic or athletic? Do you sing or dance? Lift weights or play with puppets? Are you a Professional Cheerleader or an Exceptional Ice Cube Stacker?” *Your Talent… Your Choice.
5) (MIND Over MATTER) “Are you brilliant? Creative? Inventive? Philosophical? Have your friends nicknamed you google?” *You’ve got the brains. Now prove it!

Please feature the link(s) to the account(s) that demonstrate that you meet the 5k+ fan base of “real people” (as opposed to “paid robots”) on at least one social media account – which must also include your posted audition.

Clara is a reflection of the judgmental but pseudo nurturing aspect of authority, filtered through the lens of a mother.

Their attraction is magnetic, primal, urgent, but her overprotective father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. When Cora discovers her father’s been keeping secrets about her missing mother, she flees to Ireland to look for answers.

There she meets another rare silver-haloed person and discovers her role in a worldwide conspiracy spanning centuries–and a power so incredible that some would kill to possess it.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

– Cora Sandoval: (17) Simply, effortlessly beautiful. Long, black curly hair. Green eyes. Healthy average-sized girl. Half Irish/half Chilean. Fair skin but something exotic about her. Doesn’t need to wear much makeup. A quiet, empathic, introvert. She’s got inner strength but has never been able to show it or use it. Until now.

– Finn Doyle: (17) Irish exchange student. Irish accent. Black hair, short, spiked in the middle on top. Tawny/honey brown eyes. He is a “rockstar poet”. Sensitive looks with a bit of rogue about him. Plays guitar. Tattoos. He is inexplicably drawn to Cora.

– Giovanni Teso: (18) “Mix a Nordic Viking with a Roman emperor and you’d have Giovanni Teso”. He has an Italian accent. Half Italian/half Danish. He is proud, some might say imperious but there is vulnerability in him. Good looking. Blonde, curly hair. Blue eyes. Tall.

– Benito Sandoval: (mid 40s) Cora’s father. Born in Chile, looks “Latin.” Salt and pepper hair. Meticulous. Scientist.

– Faye: (50s) Black woman who owns a new age bookstore. Gray dreadlocks. Long, flowing skirt. Many rings on her fingers. A crystal around her neck.

– Griffin: (Late 30’s-mid40’s) Tall, gangly man. Blonde hair. Dark, intense eyes. Black coat.

– Janelle: (Mid 30’s-40) Cora’s stepmom. Type A. Perfectly coiffed hair and nails. Means well, but intense to be around.
