WE ARE CURRENTLY CASTING ROLES FOR OUR FALL FILMS. We are looking to cast these roles in the following films:

“River Mouth”: When Kristen and James are left to clear up the art studio of their mother after she has passed away, the situation quickly becomes overwhelming and
uncomfortable for the two siblings whose lives have diverged over time. To find some comfort in this time of shared grief, James resorts once again to his childhood pass-time of telling epic magical stories to his little sister, as they try to decide what to do with all of their mother’s possessions. As the story goes on and mirrors their own current situation, James and Kristen realize that they aren’t ready to let go.

James

His father left when he and his sister where quite young, leaving him to take on a lot of responsibilities within his family. He is recently out of college and ready to start his career, but frequently feels guilty about having left his mother and sister behind to pursue his own dreams far away from them.

Kristen
(Female – 18/19 years old) Kristen comes off as light-hearted and a bit immature but also carries a deep sadness and frequently feels nostalgic for a past where she had a real family. She is questioning what lies ahead and still remains unsure of who she really is as a person without people around to care for her. She does whatever she can to have fun and escape her feelings.

Realtor
Female or Male. Late 20’s. Assertive deep voice for voice over sequences.
