No Soliciting (Comedy)

Location: Nashville, TN and Murfreesboro, TN

Type: Student Films

We are five students that are a part of the Tennessee Governor’s School for the Arts, a program that allows talented high school students from across Tennessee to write, budget, cast, shoot, and edit a short film. This short film will be entered into the Nashville Film Festival.

Synopsis: Sam, a recent college dropout, has just been hired by a door to door sales company. His first day takes a turn for the worst when he stumbles on to two house robbers who are attempting to remove the evidence of a murder that was the accidental byproduct of their thievery. After attempting to sell Vinny’s Stain Remover, he finds himself tied up in a closet by two killers unsure of what to do with him. He must make a daring escape or die.

Characters:

Mordechai
Male, 50 to 60 years old, Irish Accent
Mordechai is the owner of a door to door sales business. He is abrasive but kind, especially to Sam, a salesman he sees as a young version of himself.

Helen
Female, 30 to 40 years old
Helen has very little direction in life and is caught up in her husband Dave’s life of crime. She tends to be a follower, not a leader, but can still occasionally be bossy.

Dave
Male, 30 to 45 years old
He is a very unmotivated robber, but chooses to rob because he is too lazy to get a real job. He has previously committed petty crimes with limited success but his recent marriage has forced him to take on more ambitious jobs.

Sam
Male, Early 20s
A college dropout who sells stain remover door to door. He feigns enthusiasm for his job which he truthfully finds excruciatingly boring.
