This is UCSD DAC’s final portfolio project for the Professional Certificate Program in Video Production and Editing taught by Jodi Cilley, founder & president of the Film Consortium San Diego. This is a SAG-AFTRA union film; we will provide full film credit, copy, and meals during production. Pay will be $100/day deferred for principle roles only. Copy and IMDB credit only for non-speaking roles.

Rachel Ashcroft (leading role, early 30s, open ethnicity) – dark haired, attractive but not overly. Intelligent, quick on her feet, sarcastic and a take-no-bullshit approach to life. Single-minded, intense but can provide moments of slight comedy.

Charlie (Male sidekick, late 20s-early 30s, open ethnicity) – unruly hair, a genius when it comes to computer hacking and decoding. A computer nerd and cultural geek. Has a slight crush on Rachel. Funny, improv desired as well as strong with dramatic scenes.

Quinn Ashcroft (Rachel’s sister, late 20s-early 30s, open ethnicity) – beautiful and approachable but exasperated with the Rachel character. Must have good familial chemistry with Rachel.

Dales (mentor, 50s to 60s, open ethnicity) – husky, formerly built older male with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Resigned to his own fate but not without passing the torch to a worthy renegade.

Kid (10-13, off screen only) – a gamer with inappropriate insults.
