Student Film Parody Seeks Talent in Seattle


A Trip to the Groovies

Location: Seattle, WA

Type: Student Films

We are students of the award winning Ballard High School Digital Filmmaking Program in Seattle, Washington working on a policy trailer for Majestic Bay Theatres in Ballard.

Our trailer is a parody of the theater’s original policy trailer called “A Trip to the Movies” that was set in the 50s, about two siblings going to a movie together (link here: In “A Trip to the Groovies,” the kids are in their twenties and going to a movie together yet again, but in the new culture of the 70s.
This trailer will be screened before every screening at Majestic Bay Theatres (76 screenings a week) and our Ballard Film Festival, plus be available online.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
RUSS (Male 23-27) Responsible, old-fashioned, square. Russ is oblivious to the new 70s culture. He doesn’t realize that his younger sister, Ellen, is all grown up.

ELLEN (Female 23-27) Independent, feminist, loyal. Although she respects her older brother Russ, Ellen is trying to define her own life.

TONY TAGLIONI (Male 23-27) Cocky, confident, ladies man. Tony is a disco loving character (similar to John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.)

SMOKING MAN (Male 40-50) Rebellious, previous chain-smoker. Always does something against the rules in the theater that irritates Ellen and Russ.
