Please note about the director:
I am a first-time director looking to make my first professional film. I decided it would be both interesting and safe to write and make a movie that could be filmed completely distanced (with the exception of a few tough scenes, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there). I am looking to hire aspiring teenage actors and actresses who are willing to work hard on this. All auditions are appreciated!
DONNY – (lead) Male character, age 12 – 18.
Donny is the main character of the film. He is an intelligent space-geek and book nerd. He tries to play it cool but can’t help when the incompetence of his cremates make him snap. Audition script: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N9ksM_N_UATQKPmZNzF9fa0rEjpOQPa1iN2pPzGT93A/edit?usp=sharing
COLE – (co-lead) Male character, age 12 -18.
Cole is a laid-back kid who was “that funny kid” in school. He can’t stand the thought of being apart from his iphone for five days. He has a real “surfer” mentality, but when put in stressful situations he may get a little paranoid.

ARIANNA – (co-lead) Female character, age 12 – 18.
Arianna is the rich girl with tons of friends, a fake personality, and two secret boyfriends. She’s very dramatic and is known to be snippy and plastic–but she can also be sensitive. She made her dad pay the scientists to put her on the ship because she thought it would make good Instagram material.

ROSE – (co-lead) Female character, age 12 – 18.
Rose is the creepy, quiet girl. Her social awkwardness can get her into trouble. She’s also very nosy, which might come in handy. She’s a bit stand-offish but can be bold when she needs to be. She’ll take charge and fire back snippy responses when she’s pushed far enough. Audition script: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vvN4K1cauY8dMADigQZXxLDB-SiOS9CrxJElRRbHRaE/edit?usp=sharing
ZEKE – (co-lead) Male character, age 12 -18.
Zeke is bulky and built like a football player, who is too stupid for his own good. He can be both annoying and problematic. Audition script: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qnw3SXYKz3f4az3qPLwoiUpkClPJAKGguW3Tw40yOGk/edit?usp=sharing
