About Us and the Project
We’re both graduates of Case Western Reserve University who are now studying filmmaking at Tri-C. Our goal is to produce character-focused shorts that can serve as professional-grade additions to both our reel and yours. All the shorts will be self-contained but set in the shared universe of ‘Arcadia’ and certain characters may recur.

Auditions:
Saturday, August 11th from 12:00PM to 4:00PM
(Note you may request a specific time within this window)

Shooting Dates: One night in August (“Shortwave”), Two daytime shoots in August (“Arcadia Homeowners’ Association”) — flexible scheduling

Synopsis:
A series of vignettes set the fictional Ohio town of Arcadia.
Vignette #1 “Shortwave”: During his weekly late-night talk radio show, Alan receives a mysterious call from a disturbed man named Kevin. As they talk, Alan tries to figure out if Kevin actually has information about dark goings on in Arcadia, or if he’s just a lonely kook.
Vignette #2 “Arcadia Homeowners’ Association”: Charlie, the overbearing President of a suburban neighborhood association, attempts to ensure that his neighbors are following the Homeowners’ Association handbook to the letter.

Roles:

“Shortwave”

[ALAN] [GENDER: MALE] [ETHNICITY: ANY] [AGE: 40s-60s]
A deep-voiced independent radio host. Plays up his libertarian conspiracy-theorist tendencies on air. He is sensible, warm, and well-meaning deep down.

“Arcadia Homeowners’ Association”
[TAYLOR] [ETHNICITY: ANY] [GENDER: ANY] [AGE: 30s]
A settled-down family person who hasn’t quite shed their douchey and aloof college persona, and maybe they never will.
